Brooklyn-based artist Michael Shall does not draw from photographs but uses images to "gain an understanding of how certain things are structured." He then uses these s structural understandings to create his imagined worlds where those forms can do whatever he wants them to. "...these forms can do whatever I want them to, and it all looks believable, or almost believable."

A few weeks ago, we watched the documentation of Tristan Eaton and How Nosm collaborating on a mural together in Brooklyn. Today, we got the lowdown from Tristan on the enitre collaboration: "Four years after How, Nosm and I first painted this wall we revisited our collaboration one more time. Fillmore Street is an historical Brooklyn site, most specifically, famed author Henry Miller grew up on that block. . ."

We have long been fans of Dutch painter, Joram Roukes, in our offices, and have featured him both in the magazine and on our site. He currently has a new body of work up at Masters Projects in Brooklyn, which will have a reception on February 5 and on view through March 14, 2015. The gallery says of Roukes works that, "Roukes’ collage-like paintings of anthropomorphic-hipsteresque-hybrids set within dystopian landscapes visually invoke cultural tensions through realist and expressionistic painting styles."

Studies In Pessimism is a last minute trashy low down dirty show in an abandoned store put together by a bunch of nehr’do’wells. And it's one night only. These artists all have a similar aesthetic about the dark future expressed through their different mediums, a perspective centered around an honest unflinching outlook at our current modern day consumer driven lifestyle. I mean this shit is bleak and we can't wait!

In 2010, photographer Joey L. ventured into Brooklyn to photograph the seasonal trick-or-treaters in their seasonal environment. By using black and white imagery, Joey adds a mysteriousness to each subject that he photographs in his series “Halloween in Brooklyn.”

We remember seeing Edward del Rosario's work at Richard Heller Gallery a few years back, and wanted to revisit this morning. His bio is great: Edward del Rosario was born in St. Louis, Missouri. He was pushed down a flight of stairs when he was two years old. He received his BFA in Painting from the University of Kansas and his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design.

NYC's mural experts (and twins) How Nosm painted the latest wall for the Juxtapoz x Converse's Wall to Wall project, which will be featured on our November, 2014 issue. Born in San Sebastián, Spain, raised in Dusseldorf, Germany, and transplanted to the Bronx to become prominent members of the graffiti collective TATS CRU, their partnership has never waned. They continue to travel the world with major mural projects, as well as painting exhibitions.
