Brazilian street art, Emol, recently finished this vibrant, multi-colored lizard in Recife City, Pernambuco, Brazil. We have followed his work for the past couple of years, and every few months, he passes us these really bright, striking works he is completing.

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 . . .

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 . . .

We have been speaking recently about artists who have had impactful years, and Brazilian twins Os Gemeos (cover of Juxtapoz July 2010) have been around the globe creating more and more conceptual environments for their work to exist in. The newest end of the year announcement from Gemeos is the Moulin Project, something they have participated in before but were more involved this year. Information after the jump . . .

There was some Super8 footage found recently of Herbert Baglione (Juxtapoz July 2009 cover) painting all night in the basement of Lazarides Gallery in London the night before his solo show opened in November of 2008. That was a big show for Herbert, as he introduced some fully-developed color pieces that added to his already signature black and white characters. Watch the video after the jump . . .

If you can remember back to July, Juxtapoz had extensive coverage on the ground at the Transfer show in Sao Paulo, Brazil. After a bit of time, a video of Barry McGee, one of the American artists who made it down to the important Brazilian show, from Transfer was just finished and released. Watch it after the jump . . .

*Every Sunday, Juxtapoz.com will highlight an artist that we feel is currently on the cusp of a new level of critical and technical success. The artist we feature will not necessarily be unknown, nor will they be of a pre-established museum career. But they will be artists who have showcased progress in a new body of work that deserves continual examination. We will mostly look at the work itself and let the art speak. Today, we look at Brazilian fine artist, Thais Beltrame.
