A group of painters descended upon Manila, Philippines this week for the first annual Bonifacio Global City art festival produced by LA’s LeBasse Projects. For me, it’s a privilege to be painting alongside seven unstoppable international artists who are battling big walls this week...

Anthony Ausgang "Catascopes" @ Copro Gallery, LA http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/anthony-ausgang-catascopes-copro-gallery-la http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/anthony-ausgang-catascopes-copro-gallery-la Anthony Ausgang
Norm McDonald! That’s who I’m reminded of whenever I see Anthony Ausgang. Well, a taller Norm McDonald with a leonine mane. It’s the intelligent mischief in the eyes, and yes, there will be lots of felines in his upcoming show “Catascopes” opening Saturday, May 30th at the Copro Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica.

In the Magazine: No Chance to FAILE http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/in-the-magazine-no-chance-to-faile http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/in-the-magazine-no-chance-to-faile In the Magazine: No Chance to FAILE
There are two pivotal moments in FAILE’s career that stand out from the rest. The Times Square mural painted in 2013 was a reminder of the majestic size and overall collage aesthetic style their work can capture at its fullest, and the extent by which street art can be its most pop-centric. And, of course, Les Ballets de Faile installation at the New York City Ballet in 2013, a piece of art that was a literal monument connecting urban imagery with the high performance art that is the ballet. These two extremes perfectly define what FAILE is and has become; a balance between both outdoor and indoor presentations that reimagine the space they inhabit in a way that magnifies their…

Legendary Photographer Mary Ellen Mark dies at 75 http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/legendary-photographer-mary-ellen-mark-dies-at-75 http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/legendary-photographer-mary-ellen-mark-dies-at-75 Legendary Photographer Mary Ellen Mark dies at 75
The photography world lost an invaluable and legendary contributor yesterday. Mary Ellen Mark passed in Manhattan at the age of 75. Mark, who shot predominately in black and white, was responsible for countless iconic images from homeless youth in Seattle to circus performers, or prostitutes in Mumbai to mental patients.  Whatever the chosen subject may have been which were often social issues, Mark had no difficulty producing resonating and arresting imagery.

Premiere: Julian Moon "Loser" by Alexis Macnab http://www.juxtapoz.com/music/premiere-julian-moon-loser-by-alexis-macnab http://www.juxtapoz.com/music/premiere-julian-moon-loser-by-alexis-macnab Premiere: Julian Moon
Julian Moon debuted her album Good Girl late last month and we're excited to premiere her latest video for the single "Loser," a stop motion animation by LA-based visual artist Alexis Macnab. “This video encapsulates the true meaning of my song Loser," Moon tells us. "It’s about two normal people (or moles) that just enjoy living a simple life. That’s all they need because they’re doing it together...

The Magical Mystery that is Ren Hang (NSFW) http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/the-magical-mystery-that-is-ren-hang-nsfw http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/the-magical-mystery-that-is-ren-hang-nsfw The Magical Mystery that is Ren Hang (NSFW)
Chinese photographer Ren Hang is a bit of a mystery, Not because there isn't a look of work and books out with the work, and we have covered Ren multiple times over the years, but because you get the feeling that there is something revolutionary happening in the works. No special effects are needed, and the nudes and non-nudes sort of fall into a pattern and poetry together, making the work powerful even though there is subtleness in each piece.

Parra "Salut" @ Alice Gallery, Brussels http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/parra-salut-alice-gallery-brussels http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/parra-salut-alice-gallery-brussels Parra
Parra always is one of our favorite artists working today, and we can't wait to see the whole body of new work that will be up at Alice Gallery in Brussels starting on May 28, 2015. The show is called "Salut," and it looks to contain those signature elements that make Parra not only one of Europe's best contemporary artists, but really becoming one of the best all of us art people get to cover.

Daniel Rozin's Interactive "PomPom Mirror" http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/daniel-rozin-s-interactive-pompom-mirror http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/daniel-rozin-s-interactive-pompom-mirror Daniel Rozin's Interactive
Daniel Rozin’s anthropomorphic "PomPom Mirror" features a synchronized array of 928 spherical faux fur puffs. Organized into a three-dimensional grid of beige and black, the sculpture is controlled by hundreds of motors that build silhouettes of viewers using computer-vision. Along its surface, figures appear as fluffy animal-like representations within the picture plane, which is made permeable by a ‘push-pull’ forward and backward motion of meshed ‘pixels’.

Architecture studio A2arquitectos has taken everyobody's favorite toy and/or psychedelic experience and inspired a real-life children's play area at Hotel Castell De Hams in Porto Cristo, Spain. Hexagonal reflective tunnels 9 meters long by 2 meters high reflect external views and bring natural light to the children playing in them. The rest of the space looks pretty neat too...
