The Paintings of Pablo Cristi

Graffiti // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Los Angeles born, Oakland-based artist, Pablo Cristi, creates vibrant paintings and sculptures relating to pop culture, graffiti, religion, history, gangs, and “Bling culture,” are favorite topic of all. As his website states, “ Cristi’s work is motivated by an active political awareness and is steeped in a critical inquiry of power, representation and history.” “ His investigations of the colonial past, present, and future often take the form of paintings and sculptural objects that deconstruct and commingle urban visual vernaculars.”

Digital Erotica by Javier Gonzalez Pacheco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Javier Gonzalez Pacheco is a skilled erotic artist out of Barcelona who incorporates abstracted elements, geometric shapes and splashes of color to accentuate his sexy feminine portraits. The ladies he portrays in his works are undoubtedly sexy, whether alone or with their feminine counterparts. Javier is influenced by expressionist painting, as that style is visible in his digital works.

The Work of Ana Benaroya

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Ana Benaroya is an illustrator, typographer and designer; but above all, a decent human being. When not drawing, screen-printing, or Photoshop-ing, Ana can be found consuming large amounts of hot sauce, usually along with a turkey sandwich of sorts.

Preview: Jeremy Fish "Where Hearts Get Left" @ FIFY24SF Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
Last week, we headed over to Jeremy Fish's San Francisco studio to check out all the new work he was preparing for his exhibition, Where Hearts Get Left, opening Saturday, July 14, at FIFTY24SF Gallery. The show, featuring new paintings, sculptures, drawings, a new book, and a six screenprints, is all built around the concept of "a visual love letter to San Francisco," where Fish noted, "I am begging her to not become a sterile West Coast Manhattan any time soon. What are the constants? What are the things I will always love about SF no matter what happens?”

Preview: Cindy Sherman @ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
They are questions that I don’t like to answer, or even think about, ones I mulled over and over when I visited Cindy Sherman’s retrospective at MoMA this past Spring and again when the exhibition was moved to SFMOMA this Summer (opening on Saturday, July 14). Who is Cindy Sherman? Who is the real Cindy Sherman? I don’t like that it even comes up in my head. What she is, on the surface, is a photographer, model, stylist, filmmaker, and wardrobe artist....

MQ barge in transit

Graffiti // Friday, July 13, 2012
It’s on the move! A rare recent capture of the massive, rust-ridden MQ barge in San Francisco being moved by a tugboat to a new destination. It appears time and weather has had its way, eating away at the paint, making the letters less distinct.
