Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 16, 2015
We are excited about this one, as the show has a lot of our friends and artists we admire at the moment. Joshua Liner Gallery presents All Types of Characters, a group exhibition curated by arts and culture digest The World’s Best Ever. Showcasing over thirty contemporary artists based in Canada, Denmark, and The United States, the exhibition highlights the presence of characters in each artists’ work and their function as a means to explore identity and ideas of beauty as a social commentary. All Types of Characters will open with a reception on Thursday, June 18, 2015.

Andy Rementer was our cover artist one year ago, and we've enjoyed watching his work travel and grow even more since then. His latest impressive exhibit, "Together," just opened at Commune Gallery in Tokyo, and includes new drawings and paintings, and a special tote bag and zine edition of 200 available at the gallery. Might be time to plan a weekend getaway to Tokyo.

Andy Rementer, who was cover artist of our April, 2014 issue, recently completed a really cool project. He designed some 3D Printing-inspired stamp for the enclaved microstate The Republic of San Marino. Now, how cool is that?

Andy Rementer told us that he saw insecurity "as a result of people being forced into living their lives too close to one another." That thought has really stuck with us throughout the year as we continue to adjust to the inter-connectedness of our digital world. Kristin Farr talks to Andy about his Medieval Minute comics, moving from drawing to painting, R. Curmb, Jean-Luc Godard, and his eclectic cast of characters, and more in this April, 2014 interview.

People Blocks 2 is the latest collaboration between former Juxtapoz cover artist Andy Rementer and Case Studyo. The limited series features four new wooden characters entirely made and painted by hand. The individual pieces are interchangeable, allowing them to be re-assembled and stacked to create custom characters or abstract sculptures.

Opening: "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery—The PeopleJuxtapoz // Monday, May 19, 2014
As you may already know, or maybe you were there, but Juxtapoz celebrated a special 20th birthday exhibition, "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine" at Jonathan LeVine Gallery this past week in NYC. We were excited to see old friends, new friends, artists, curators, editors, and anyone and everyone who has contributed or supported the magazine over the past two decades. We had two wild nights of openings and parties, and with the gracious support of the entire Jonathan LeVine Gallery staff, Converse, Liquitex, and all our friends, here is a look at the people who came out and celebrated.

April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer will be returning to Mondo Cane in NYC with his third solo show of new and previously un-shown paintings and drawings on Thursday, May 1st. The "Meet Me Later" series transports us to seemingly familiar street corners, interiors and subway platforms populated by characters caught in frozen moments of furtive activity. The work has a timeless quality which seems to draw from influences as diverse as Léger, The Italian Renaissance and even the narrative economy of Raymond Carver. Ambigiuous narratives connect the work, while Rementer's use of bold colour, street signage, and textile pattern create further layers and stories of their own.

It seems about right. We noticed on April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer's Instagram that he did a t-shirt for DC Shoes and Pick Me Up 2014, one of the best if not THE BEST graphic arts festivals in the world. And what seems right about it is that we learned about Rementer's work at the festival a few years back. Pick Me Up is held annually at the Somerset House in London, and basically get the right people together to show the right kind of graphic and illustrative and design arts.
