In Cleon Peterson’s End of Days, opening February 22nd at New Image Art Gallery, Peterson’s world of depravity does not simply crash and burn: it reverses polarity, inherited not by the meek but by the vengeful and merciless. Whatever days have ended, they have been succeeded by a new age of barbarism, with clear winners and losers...

This past Wednesday, Juxtapoz attended a special benefit and auction hosted by Flea and Anthony Kiedis, all to benefit the Los Angeles area Silverlake Conservatory of Music.

If you happen to get yourself to London in the month of July, there is a good art show to check out: Cleon Peterson, "There Is A War," at London's The Outsiders. "Cleon Peterson's nightmarish tableaux feature scenes of a barbaric holocaust, where might is right and the weak are merely souls with holes for the strong to torment and abuse. Deviance is the norm, and the displaced individual is forced to navigate this wicked world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs."
