Horfee is not only one of the most innovative graffiti artists we know, he is fast becoming one of the most prolific and interesting fine artists showing around the world today. His style is just that; his. We love what we saw of his show at New Image Art this year, and his new work at Ruttkowski 68 in Cologne, Germany, "Traditional Occupation," is again, outstanding. Up through January 18, 2015.

We were very excited when Andrew Schoultz sent us a preview of his new work for "Broken Order," opening at Ruttkowski Gallery in Cologne, Germany on October 10. The direction he has taken his familiar visual language is intriguing, and although we haven't seen the sculptures and installation that will be accompanying the paintings, but if they are anything like these paintings, they will be showstoppers. We have worked with Andrew in the past on numerous projects, whether at SXSW or Art Basel, and have seen his work grow after standout shows at the Monterey Museum of Art and SFMoMA. This show looks to be one of his best.

Always a favorite in the Juxtapoz office, Parra just opened a new solo show at Ruttkowski 68 Gallery in Cologne, Germany, titled And Wait For Something to Happen. The show features 11 paintings, 11 drawings, and porcelain editions made in collaboration with the great Case Studyo. The work again shows the Amsterdam-based Parra's bold, powerful, confident, and simply elegant work, and playful subject matter.

Gerhard Richter is an extremely diverse artist, known very well for his paintings that vary from photo-realistic speed blurs to large colorful abstractions. This video shot by filmmaker Corinna Belz while spending three years in Richter's Cologne studio working on her film Gerhard Richter Painting is amazing how it reveals the paintings being formed and Richter's unique practice of smearing, scraping, layering, and removing paint to create these large abstract paintings.
