Like a paintbrush and a canvas, building a website is an essential tool that every artist can utilize. These days there is no barrier between the artist and the general public. There is no doubt that with an online presence your work can more easily be found, shared, and recognized. Whether your are an artist, photographer, writer, or creative of any type, having a clean and functional website can be one of the most effective ways to market your work.

Run The Jewels feat. Zack de la Rocha "Close Your Eyes (And Count To F**k)" http://www.juxtapoz.com/music/run-the-jewels-feat-zack-de-la-rocha-close-your-eyes-and-count-to-f-k http://www.juxtapoz.com/music/run-the-jewels-feat-zack-de-la-rocha-close-your-eyes-and-count-to-f-k Run The Jewels feat. Zack de la Rocha
RTJ2 has been one of our favorite albums of the last year and probably has been on repeat in the Juxtapoz office quite frequently. They just released their latest video, directed by A.G. Rojas, for "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck). Featuring Shea Whigham as a police officer (of Boardwalk Empire) and Keith Stanfield as a young black man (Selma), the video is as powerful as the track itself.

Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen by Erica Simone http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/nue-york-self-portraits-of-a-bare-urban-citizen-by-erica-simone http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/nue-york-self-portraits-of-a-bare-urban-citizen-by-erica-simone Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen by Erica Simone
We have for the last few months tried to figure out who created the "Nue York" series of photographs, and when researching some titles in the Taschen catalog, we came across the name: Erica Simone. And then further research came the realization that she was the one behind this great series of photographs, and we knew the concept was something we wanted to learn more about, and she had a full statement on her site. . .

We highly recommend going to this show at the Studio Museum in Harlem to see the exceptional works of Trenton Doyle Hancock. From Artsy, the show is an "in-depth mid-career retrospective, Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing examines the extensive body of drawings by Trenton Doyle Hancock. With over 200 works of art, the exhibition explores his imaginative, humorous, and elastic creations in an epic tale of good and evil."

Chris Brunkhart: Borderless Space @ .T.F.R. Gallery, Encinitas http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/chris-brunkhart-borderless-space-t-f-r-gallery-encinitas http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/chris-brunkhart-borderless-space-t-f-r-gallery-encinitas Chris Brunkhart: Borderless Space @ .T.F.R. Gallery, Encinitas
Chris’s time in New York City was spent in borderless space. I’m not speaking here in terms of NYC being a hub for global culture and commerce, although it is surely borderless in this respect, too. Rather, his stint in New York City was time spent organizing form, light, meanings, objects, enduring histories and fleeting moments. All of which, more often than not, seemed to present themselves as if melded together without any division between these concepts, without clear distinction between “this” and “that.”

Interview: Janet Delaney "South of Market" @ de Young Museum, SF http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/interview-janet-delaney-south-of-market-de-young-museum-sf http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/interview-janet-delaney-south-of-market-de-young-museum-sf Interview: Janet Delaney
Hurricane Katrina drenched, decimated and maybe resuscitated New Orleans. The Big Three abandoned Detroit, leaving a place struggling for structure and street lights. A room in San Francisco will buy a house in another urban center. The dynamics of cities is measurable and personal, and Janet Delaney’s South of Market, currently on view at San Francisco’s de Young Museum, documents her firsthand experience as a resident and keen-eyed photographer during the 1970s and ’80s

Suds and Smiles by Samantha Fortenberry http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/suds-and-smiles-by-samantha-fortenberry http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/suds-and-smiles-by-samantha-fortenberry Suds and Smiles by Samantha Fortenberry
For her "Suds and Smiles" series, Samantha Fortenberry asked her subjects to gather different objects that held meaning to them and then based the rest of the set on their ideas. She also wanted to find a wide variety of people in all shapes and sizes "to display the various form of beauty each person has."

Erik Jones "Color/Full" @ Thinkspace Gallery http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/erik-jones-color-full-thinkspace-gallery http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/erik-jones-color-full-thinkspace-gallery Erik Jones
Concurrently on view this Saturday in the Thinkspace project room are new works by Erik Jones in Color/Full. Originally from St Petersburg Florida, Jones currently lives and works in New York city. His technically complex mixed-media works combine the figurative with the geometric in seamless collusion and concert. Jones’ hyperrealistic figuration is offset by geometric patterns and momentums that seem to live and breathe as symbiotic organisms.

SXSW In Pictures: Brock Fetch in Austin http://www.juxtapoz.com/music/sxsw-in-pictures-brock-fetch-in-austin http://www.juxtapoz.com/music/sxsw-in-pictures-brock-fetch-in-austin SXSW In Pictures: Brock Fetch in Austin
While some of us were watching the paint dry on a new Dabs Myla mural, listening to Iceage at the Juxtapoz x Brixton showcase at the Buckshot, or perhaps even enjoying some Spring Breakers over BBQ, some people are hard at work. Juxtapoz-often-contributor and roaming photographer Brock Fetch was all over the place during the SXSW madness, capturing backstage moments, crowd moments, surreal moments, calm moments, and some chaotic moments throughout the week, and he shared some of his photos with us today.
