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.

A Beard of Bears by Brandon Loving

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Brandon Loving is an illustrator/artist currently residing in Savannah, Ga. He's the roughest, toughest son of a gun this side of the Smokies and he'll challenge anyone who says otherwise. With a beard of bears and an arsenal of traditional naval tattoos, we're Loving it- get it?? Ha. ha... duh....

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.

Friday the 13th Opening: Neck Face "SIMPLY THE WORST" Print Release @ New Image Art

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
Seems quite appropriate for Friday the 13th. September 2011 cover artist, Neck Face, is opening a new print release show, Simply the Worst, at New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles. Costumes accepted, and free booze. And a message from Neck Face: "If I'm throwing it you know it's gonna be fun." Ah, it's one of those kind of parties... dig it.

The World's First Lego Colosseum by Ryan McNaught

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
We actually reallly like the size here in the construction of the world's first Lego Colosseum, created by certified Lego builder, Ryan McNaught. Over 200.000 bricks were needed to create this Roman scene and structure, and you even get the outdoor pavillions and walkways with gladiators and rulers surrounding the great Colosseum.

Innovative Street Art by Jilly Ballistic

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
Jilly Ballistic's recent, digitally inspired series of street and subway pieces caught our eye. These sardonic pop-up windows and drop tabs deflate the advertisements and make us laugh where we would have previously groaned. Thank you Jilly Ballistic. These make us smile.
