Tattoo // Wednesday, May 09, 2012
One of our favorite NYC-based artists, Wes Lang, is set to open a new solo show, Here Comes Sunshine, at the Lower East Side's Half Gallery this May 17, 2012. We follow Lang's blog closely, and he is good about updating it with oldies and newbies, and we recommend spending some time looking at his Americana meets tattoo meets stream of consciousness. And it is always good.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 09, 2012
This 2011 artwork by Julien Berthier utilizes a simple, clever gesture on a large scale. The French artist has a practice of diagrammatic drawings, sculpture, and outdoor, site-specific work. "A LOST", a bold intervention by Berthier, grabbed our attention with its blatant desecration of a corporate advertisement and use of sardonic humor.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 09, 2012
Wow, if you think this image looks like a photo, wait until you get to the ones of the cats. We just stumbled across the work of Paullung in the wee hours of the morning, and it took us a bit to start seeing that what we were looking at were illustrations. The Hong King-based artist definitely has a good hand.
