Juxtapoz // Friday, February 18, 2011
London-based Jux-contributor Butterfly was at the opening of Works On Paper, Stanley Donwood's new show at Lazarides' The Outsiders space. Must be a busy time for Mr. Donwood, as he is the artist behind the first ever "newspaper" album, as he does all the artwork for Radiohead. They are set to release said newspaper album version of The King of Limbs in May. Opening photos after the jump . . .

Sao Paulo, Brazil-based Carla Barth is a fine artist, illustrator, and sculptor, and someone we learned about recently doing research on illustration. We think her work both has a broad appeal as well as interesting intricacies that made us get in contact with her. Check out the portfolio after the jump . . .

This video, which has nothing to do with the 8-bit Mario imagery, is like some twisted Chris Cunningham meets Shakespeare meets Bizarro Land starring Super Mario himself. This is disturbing, but kind of interesting and weird as well. Video after the jump . . .

One of the best spots in all the East Coast, MoMA's PS1, is showing an exhibition of great interest to anyone born from 1975 on. A completely interactive video-game installation, the New York debut of Feng Mengbo’s installation Long March: Restart (2008). Reading the description of the show makes us want to buy a plane ticket now. More after the jump . . .

"When I happened upon Gregory Bartning’s photography studio during San Francisco’s “Open Studios” event in the Lower Haight, my jaw literally dropped," writes Jasmine June Cabanaw. "Cliche, I know, but that was my physical response when I saw his stunning dance photography displayed on the studio walls. A dancer myself, I was baffled at how geometrically perfect the images were." Interview after the jump . . .

Upcoming Juxtapoz feature in our February issue and one of our Artists to Watch a few Sunday ago, Thais Beltrame, will be showing at the Art Association of Jackson Hole this coming January 14, 2011. The Brazilian born artist will take her black and white drawings that feature existential themes and childhood memories to the beautiful town in Wyoming. Not sure we have had a Wyoming reference here in a while. Feels good. More after the jump . . .

New York City-based photographer iO Tillett Wright posted her 90 Photos of 2010 as the year ended, and because we have always loved her black and white shots at night, we found some of our favorites to post her. Of course, iO posted them "In actual chronological order I give you, my 2010 in photographs," and we just posted them in a random order, because we are random. Photos after the jump . . .

This post is two-fold. One, we receive many letters from prisoners who are avid readers of Juxtapoz. And two, we like to showcase someone who documents prison art in a classic portrayal like Robert Gumpert has in this series, American Prison Tattoos. Gumpert explores the meanings behind prisoners’ tattoos in Californian penitentiaries with clean black and white photography. Many photos after the jump . . .

Mac, a past Juxtapoz cover and recent interviewer of Kofie One for our October 2010 issue, just finished this mural in Campeche, Mexico for the Seres Queridos project. This particular portrait is of Manuel Lee Chang, known locally as "el Chino"(despite the fact that he's of Korean descent) with his Guacamaya (Macaw). More information after the jump . . .
