Juxtapoz launched our 20th anniversary year in January 2014 with our Imagination issue and a cover story on Charlie Immer, the painter of what can best be described as skeleton slime. Immer just released a stunning print and opened a brand new show at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn.

In the next couple of weeks, as 2014 comes to a close we are digging through the year's issues and sharing some of our favorite features. We kick it off with Charlie Immer's interview from January's "Imagination Issue" curated by Alex Pardee. The interview begins with possibly our favorite opening line this year, "Imagine a candy-coated land full of violence, gore and mischief where paint doesn't exist and everything is funny." Enjoy...

Inspired heavily by horror films, cartoons, nature, candy, and video games, January 2014 cover artist (cover of the Alex Pardee curated "Imagination Issue" no doubt) Charlie Immer‘s striking, surreal work is both humorous and unsettling. “Loose Juice” is Immer’s first solo show at La Luz de Jesus Gallery and features paintings focused on Endurance. The show opens this Friday, April 4, 2014.
Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 03, 2013
Juxtapoz' 20th year begins with a special issue curated by Alex Pardee. "The Imagination Issue" is just that: a look into the special worlds and imaginative universes created by some of our favorite artists and creatives working in the world today. From David Copperfield's world of magic, the Lonely Island's original brand of parody and music, inside Wolvesmouth's kitchen, and into the studios of fine artists Charlie Immer, Tara McPherson, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Scott C, and more. "The Imagination Issue" explores where creativity can take you, where it was born, and how an artist can transform the regular into a special world for us to share.

"My concepts come from my fascination with anatomy and my love of candy and toys," says Maryland-based illustrator Charlie Immer. "I have so much fun creating the blood and bones of my characters. The contrast of the smooth bodies and the complex systems beneath spilling out is very appealing to me."
