The Work of Masumi Sakamoto http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/the-work-of-masumi-sakamoto http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/the-work-of-masumi-sakamoto The Work of Masumi Sakamoto
Osaka-born artist Masumi Sakamoto eliminates extra background in her paintings to emphasize the characteristics of the figures, striving to explore what lays beneath the skin. Posed like fashion models and pop stars, the androgynous children in her paintings are like the characters in fairy tales: far from reality. With her optimistic expressions, Sakamoto covers tough situations in modern society with beautiful colors and thoughtful compositions. We look forward to more work from this promising young artist.

‘Three-Planet Lifestyle’ by Stephan Doitschinoff @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/three-planet-lifestyle-by-stephan-doitschinoff-jonathan-levine-gallery http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/three-planet-lifestyle-by-stephan-doitschinoff-jonathan-levine-gallery ‘Three-Planet Lifestyle’ by Stephan Doitschinoff @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery
Three-Planet Lifestyle, a solo exhibition of new works by Stephan Doitschinoff, will open September 10 and be up until October 10, 2015 at Jonathan LeVine Gallery at 529 West 20th Street and 557C West 23rd Street, New York City. At first glance, Doitschinoff’s work appears to be a visual narrative infused with religious and esoteric references but closer examination reveals a process of appropriation and re-signification. He uses recognizable religious icons such as the altar, the procession and anthropomorphic characters but removes all mystic and ideological content, appropriating the imagery and adding contemporary symbols created from personal reflection and observation. In Three-Planet Lifestyle, sinking boats full of books, moons studded with flags and collapsing skyscrapers allude to the rupture of…

Paul Wunderlich was a German painter, sculptor and graphic artist. Influenced by the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements, his work showcases nudes which were siezed in the 1960s due to their indecent nature. This Surrealist series is brought together by pops of vibrant red in each piece.

Nuart 2015, Day 1 and Works in Progress http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/nuart-2015-day-1-and-works-in-progress http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/nuart-2015-day-1-and-works-in-progress Nuart 2015, Day 1 and Works in Progress
It's so good to be back. This is our fifth (maybe sixth, who's counting?) year at Nuart, and not only is this the festival's 15th year, but they have an outstanding line-up creating art around Stavanger, Norway with the topic of play and intervention at its heart. We just got into town, and the artists are all hard at work, so before the talks, the drinks, and the unveiling of all the tunnel installations, here is a look at some of the works in progress.
