NurtureART: Inspired by Andy Warhol

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 21, 2015
We have been working with a few Andy Warhol projects over the past month, and we were happy to see this go up on Paddle8's auction site today: The Andy Warhol Foundation is proud to present this auction which includes original artwork inspired by Warhol’s work created by ten renowned artists (all artists who have been in Juxtapoz over the past year or two as well). Proceeds will benefit NURTUREart, a non-profit institute dedicated to nurturing new contemporary art by providing exhibition opportunities and resources for emerging artists, curators and public school students.

Best of 2014: Cleon Peterson, October Cover Artist

Vault // Tuesday, December 30, 2014
These paintings are violent, rampant with murder, rape and brutality, all the things envisioned when thinking of a Gestapo past or some distant Orwellian vision. Upon looking at these paintings or anything that physically disturbs us, there is always a hesitancy to acknowledge the present. The “right now” is rarely considered, yet we all know violence and intimidation aren’t just the products of secret war missions and totalitarian aspirations...

The following is an excerpt from the Juxtapoz October 2014 cover story with Peterson.

Single Mothers: New Album Art by Cleon Peterson

Music // Wednesday, October 08, 2014
Our good friend and October 2014 cover artist Cleon Peterson just completed album art for the band Single Mothers, and, well, the cover is epic. The band also sent us the look of their new video for the track "Half-Lit" this morning, which is a classy look into what energy looks like in black and white. 

In the Magazine: Cleon Peterson

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 08, 2014
Cleon Peterson is not a painting. You are probably thinking to yourself, “No shit.” But you and I both know that the type of work Cleon Peterson produces brings up many questions about self and authorship. Let’s get that point out of the way immediately because we live in a time of extreme self-exposure and explanation, and I just want to make sure you’re with me...

Cruel Summer curated by Roger Gastman @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 05, 2014
Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Cruel Summer, a group exhibition curated by collector, graffiti historian, Juxtappoz contributor, and urban anthropologist Roger Gastman. "The summer of 1984 was awesome. The space shuttle Discovery took off on its maiden voyage, Apple released the Macintosh personal computer, the Olympics rallied the world together and Karate Kid was the hit film featuring the song Cruel Summer by Bananarama. The song and its video of three gorgeous young women roaming the streets of New York City inspired this show."
