Alex Prager "Compulsion" in Los Angeles, NYC, and London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
Few photographers create the cinematic scenery that Alex Prager depicts in her work. Part film noir, part Wizard of Oz circa 2025, Prager has taken an aesthetic and made it one of the most recognizable in the world of contemporary photography. That is hard to do in this day and age. Right now, her Compulsion series is on simultaneous display at three galleries: Michael Hoppen Gallery, London until May 26, at New York’s Yancey Richardson Gallery until May 19, and M+B Gallery, LA until May 12.

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
They definitely should create an iPhone app that is called 'Where in the World is Roa?" It seems like the man darts the world and leaves evidence of his black and white animals for the world to enjoy. The Belgian street, public, fine, and installation artist just opened a new solo show at Stolenspace in London, and we went to go check it out last night. Photos after the jump . . .

Ron English for Your April 20 Festivities

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
As you probably know, or forgot about 15 minutes ago, but today is the infamous 4-20, a full-court press of weed jokes and eating fast food you don't really want. To celebrate the occasion, we turn to witticisms of Ron English, who not only is featured in our May 2012 Public Art Issue, but is also an artist who can create a clever weed advertisement. Enjoy.

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
This breathtaking body of photographs taken by Nadav Kander has won him the Prix Pictet prize back in 2010 as well as our adoration. Its best we allow Kander to explain the project in his own words (below is merely an excerpt from a longer statement) and then let the photos tell the rest of the story through their beautifully minimal compositions and seductively subdued hues.

Cardboard Art by Evol

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 19, 2012
As we have mentioned on the site before, we are huge fans of the work of EVOL, the German artist who seems to have the ability to transform any landscape or found object into his own little world. Some of his best work involves found cardboard, where he takes a simple piece of paper and creates incredible cityscapes and urban environments on the cardboard surface.
