The Work of Gildo Medina

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 22, 2012
'Apparent simplicity is the result of extreme sophistication. Merging traditional techniques and deeply superficiality is part of the signature of Gildo Medina. The precision of his drawings transform his crystallised characters in living glorious sculptures. He creates unexpected beauty.'

Skating with Shadows: "Peter Brings the Shadow to Life"

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
A beautifully shot skate video, with the title taken from a line in an essay about Peter Pan, Joe Pease has created an alternate reality by focusing on the shadow as opposed to the person skating. After awhile, it becomes like a symphony of shapes and movement. The Nick Cave helps.

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
We love a good bit of noir in the morning, and we came across a whole series of femme fatales from Beijing-based fine artist, Mu Lei. A great use of a simple palette, with a piercing stare and vivid red lip makes these a stunning series.

The Backs of Birds by Audrey Corregan

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
We never thought looking at the back of a bird's head would seem some regal and peaceful, but Audrey Corregan's series, Obviously, has put us in a quite a serene mood. As Corregan says, "“They are big, almost our alter egos. These imposing creatures turn their backs on us in superb indifference, captivated by a sight that we cannot see."

Paintings by El Grio

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
This flat and graphic painting style with its emphasis on the flattened perspective and geometric forms creating vibration between the hues is pleasing in its wonkiness. El Grio paints objects that are familiar, yet with an approach that reformats the colors and shapes into an abstraction that is more lively than the initial thing itself . . .
