Cristina Vergano "The Laws of Attraction" @ Woodward Gallery, NY

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 12, 2014
Artist Cristina Vergano depicts wildlife locked in evolutionary struggles for primacy and reproduction. She freely mixes techniques that span from oil painting to collage, and often paints on unexpected found objects. Classical Latin quotes float through her paintings, shedding further meaning and lending a graphic, very contemporary dimension to this new body of work. The result is strong and original, sui generis...

The Typography of Blue Note Album Covers

Design // Friday, December 12, 2014
We've been a little obsessed with typographic album covers lately. It started when we got our hands on the lost James Brown/Bootsy Collins "These Are The J.B.'s" and continued with this article on Creative Review's blog about the typographic covers of Blue Note. The legendary jazz label turns 75 this year and Creative Review looks at the long history of covering its music in "wild typographic expression." 

Signalstarr's Mystic Psychedelia

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 12, 2014
Nick Stewart Hoyle, aka "Signalstarr" is a London-based artist, and self proclaimed visual traverser of the etheric. "His work explores themes of retroist nostalgia fused with futurist vistas, digital spirtualism and mystic psychedelia. Escapism serves as chief catalyst for his process, and takes the viewer on a journey swathed in analog textural washes." Perhaps his works serve as nothing more than a signal back to the stars whence they came...

Best of 2014: Andy Rementer, April Cover Artist

Vault // Friday, December 12, 2014
Andy Rementer told us that he saw insecurity "as a result of people being forced into living their lives too close to one another." That thought has really stuck with us throughout the year as we continue to adjust to the inter-connectedness of our digital world. Kristin Farr talks to Andy about his Medieval Minute comics, moving from drawing to painting, R. Curmb, Jean-Luc Godard, and his eclectic cast of characters, and more in this April, 2014 interview. 

Best of 2014: Clarity Haynes' "The Breast Portrait Project

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 12, 2014
The large-scale paintings I am currenty working on come out of a decade-and-a-half long feminist art project. The Breast Portrait Project exists in the intersections of art and social intervention, merging drawing, painting, artist book production, documentary photography, and writing. My work is a subversion of traditional purposes of portraiture, with a focus on making discoveries and facilitating transformation in my subjects, myself, and in communities of viewers...

Art School Skateboards

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 12, 2014
Artschool Skateboards began about six years ago as a need-to-do-something-more-artsy in the skateboard world. Founders Jeff Talbot and Mark Kowalchuk felt that skatebaord decks were loosing the individual artistic expression that had once identified a brand or a rider. Instead of focusing strickly on their riders like most companies, Artschool chose to emphasize pro model artist series graphics.
