As Juxtapoz is preparing our special print edition feature with the Chicago-based artist Nick Cave, we were excited that we got a chance to meet up with him in Boston prior to opening. But that is for another day... we are here to tell you to go and see Cave's new exhibition at the Boston ICA. Cave is famous for his his “Soundsuits”: full-body outfits crafted from discarded objects found in antique shops and flea markets.

In our December issue, we published a Travel Insider piece on the art scene of the great Northeast city of Boston. It got us thinking a trip back east may be in the cards soon. The Luxury Collection and One Kings Lane are proving to be a perfect travel guide... this trip looks like a nice start.

Boston-based artist Jussica Dunegan uses a mixture of epoxy resin and acrylic paint, squeezing tubes of paint directly into a layer of resin while it is still in liquid form. The opaque strands of paint remain loosely delineated and hover within the transparent resin. Once the initial layer dries she will repeat the process to give the paintings a physical dimension. The resulting piece may look realistic from afar but upon closer inspection, they are comprised of suspended, chaotic lines. Watch a video after the jump!

Scott Listfield paints Astronauts and, sometimes, dinosaurs. His oil on canvas paintings generally feature a lone exploratory astronaut lost in apocalyptic-looking landscapes scattered with pop culture, coporate logos, and tongue-in-cheak science fiction.

Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the piece that Boston-based Caleb Neelon painted in his hometown. We were happy that we had one of our longtime contributing editors, and a big part of our editorial team, Neelon, paint one of the standout walls from the series.

We have profiled Bill Dunlap's work in the magazine before, but we have just come across his black painting and faces series and wanted to share with our readers. Dunlap has shown in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and Boston this summer in various group shows, but is also known to paint a very well-constructed barn mural. He also "Can't read, can't write." And was "Raised by wolves and skunks."

Os Gemeos have just recently unveiled a new mural on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway overlooking Dewey Square in Boston, a beautiful, playful piece really, that has sadly aroused a series of shallow-minded and bigoted responses online. Sure enough, Fox Boston prompted these responses on Facebook...
