Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 25, 2014
We are huge fans of Parra, and his March 2008 cover ranks as one of our favorites of all time. And, we quite the 3 artworks that the Amsterdam-based artist sent for our 20th Anniversary show, "Art Truancy," at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this past May/June. The artist is back at HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles with a new series of works, "Same Old Song," all visual treats that not only reflect the artist's sense of humor, but this roots in poster art where communication is a practice in simplyfying complex ideas.

We have featured the sculptural and performance-style works of NYC-based Aakash Nihalani in the print edition and web version of Juxtapoz over the years, and he just sent us images from his new project, Landline. He says of the new work, "In these new outdoor works, colorful bars pass through individuals, connecting them to each other and functioning as extensions of the urban landscape. The participants examine their own insides and connections, a visual expression of both the isolation and community I often feel living in Brooklyn. We spend so much time existing in virtual reality, these works are a visible connection to the real world."
