Jean André’s “gentleman art” balances saucy and minimalistic representations of women, creating images that read as both gentlemen’s pulp illustration and satirical tableaux. His influences range from Matisse to Gainsbourg to Drake as well as erotic magazines from the 80’s. On August 2nd, at HVW8 Gallery's Berlin space, Jean will open "Mauvaise Réputation," that will feature a collaboration with tattoo artists as well as work inspired by classic flash art.

Summertime Beaching with Hilo Chen http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/summertime-beaching-with-hilo-chen http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/summertime-beaching-with-hilo-chen Summertime Beaching with Hilo Chen
We have absolutely no idea what beach Taiwanese-American artist Hilo Chen goes to create his larger than life hyperreal portraits of woman nude on beaches, but it seems like it could be a nice vacation spot... just sayin. Enjoy the summertime vibes from one of the more accomplished, if not slightly sexy photoreal artists in the world today. Hilo was featured in our Juxtapoz Hyperreal Book that we published in 2014.

Paintings by István (Étienne) Sándorfi http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-by-istvan-etienne-sandorfi http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-by-istvan-etienne-sandorfi Paintings by István (Étienne) Sándorfi
Istvan (known as Etienne) Sandorfi was born in Budapest in 1948 and died in 2007. His father was director of the American company, IBM, in Hungary. Because of this association he served five years in Stalinist prisons during the Communist regime and his family was deported to an isolated Hungarian village. At the time of the 1956 uprising the Sandorfi family fled the country and became expatriates, first in Germany, then in France. Greatly affected by the violence of the revolution and by the aberration of political systems in general, Istvan took refuge in drawing, and then, at the age of 12, in oil painting.

Josh Keyes: The Artist in Evolution http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/josh-keyes-the-artist-in-evolution http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/josh-keyes-the-artist-in-evolution Josh Keyes: The Artist in Evolution
Keyes has always created work with almost apocalyptic visions of a world abandoned, where humans have left behind materialistic remnants of civilization. But recently, his life and art have markedly evolved. In almost striking similarities with his work, he has become rooted in the Pacific Northwest, with the lush environment now on each canvas. Gone are the dioramas, the signature white-background pieces that famously identified him; enter a more personal style, darker, and oddly, paintings suffused with humanity.

Paintings and Collages by Nadira Husain http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-and-collages-by-nadira-husain http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-and-collages-by-nadira-husain Paintings and Collages by Nadira Husain
Our relation to images is conditioned by the various pictorial conventions of Western culture. Paris and Berlin-based artist Nadira Husain addresses them in her work, albeit decidedly not from a traditional Western male perspective. Her generally figurative pictures display the influence of both Indian miniatures and the feminist theoretical apparatus.

Opening: Swampy "NBD" @ Chandran Gallery, SF http://www.juxtapoz.com/pop-life/opening-swampy-nbd-chandran-gallery-sf http://www.juxtapoz.com/pop-life/opening-swampy-nbd-chandran-gallery-sf Opening: Swampy
This past Saturday, Chandran Gallery in San Francisco hosted an exhibition and book release for Swampy, both titled NBD. The elusive artist had been quiet for a few years until starting an Instagram account earlier this year, and in the process, worked and created a new book of photos, essays, and stories around new train-hopping travels and documenting parts of rural North America.
