One of our favorite artists, and the talent behind the cover of our July Brazil Issue (Juxtapoz #102) Brazilian-based Herbert Baglione continues to serve up his signature strong, simple designs and extreme physical figures. Lucky for us (and you!) we also convinced him to serve up some answers to Back Talk. Like his paintings, Baglione's responses are minimalist, mysterious and a little strange.

Travis Louie is more than an artist. He is a storyteller. Beyond mere subjects, his paintings feature characters with a life, a history, and dreams for the future—all of which he has written out in bio-form to accompany them.

Vietnamese artist Tran Nguyen may still be in art school, but her portraits are already quite developed. Her surreal illustrations remind us (dare we say it?) a bit of Audrey Kawasaki's finely rendered works on wood panel. We didn't know much about this emerging artist, but after a peek at her latest works now on display at Thinkspace, we had to know more. Meet Tran in Back Talk with Tran Nguyen.

Jeff Soto (Juxtapoz cover #99) is one of our all time favorite artists. Not only is he a talented painter, but he is also a nice and really down to earth guy. Soto has been busier than one of those furry mutant butterflies he paints, with a recent museum showing at Riverside Art Museum, a London solo show The Inland Empire on display now at Stolen Space, and (of course) a recent cover story with Juxtapoz for our April issue. All this exposure left us hungry for more about Jeff. The real Jeff. Get to hear the man talk in our Back Talk feature with Jeff Soto.

It may or may not come as a surprise that Camille Rose Garcia (above left) was born in Los Angeles and grew up in the generic suburbs of Orange County. A youth saturated in visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows some how morphed her into the most charming and disarming little 'anarchist' we could ever picture, as her paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales provide critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias. Camille is featured in our upcoming June 2009 Special 100th Issue of Juxtapoz hitting newsstands soon, so get to know the lady behind some of our all-time favorite paintings in our Back Talk feature with Camille Rose Garcia.

Now entering Jeremyville (Juxtapoz #96): a wonderfully colorful land inhabited by emotionally charged comic characters born from within the mind of its correspondingly named creator. Sydney and NYC based Jeremyville is busier these days than ever with his massively popular characters, designs, apparel, comics, books, and more. Yeah, this guy seems to have a hand in a little bit of everything. And that’s just the way he likes it. Jeremyville kindly answered our 20 Questions from his Australian studio. Read what’s on the mind of Jeremyville in 20 Questions with Jeremyville.

Los Angeles artist Luke Chueh, (Juxtapoz #91) has plans to take over Corey Helford Gallery this Friday, March 20th with his visually arresting paintings of visciousy adorable animals in the solo show, From Light Cometh Darkness. But first we pulled the artist out of the studio to answer 20 Questions. This designer, illustrator, and painter was born in Philadelphia, raised in Fresno, and now lives in Los Angeles, where he has build a steady career fashioning his unique “cute meets brute” artistry. Employing minimal color schemes, simple animal characters, and a seemingly endless list of ill-fated situations, Chueh stylistically balances nature with society. In walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy, Chueh forces the viewer to reconsider previously held notions of nature versus nurture.
