Geoff McFetridge does a lot of things very well. He does visuals for the film "HER," collaborations with Jack Spade/Heath Ceramics/NIke/Spike Jonze, and makes beautiful minimalist paintings. He was also the cover of the September 2013 Juxtapoz print edition, and he painted a surfboard for our special benefit auction for Waves for Water that starts today. And, this Friday, March 21, he opens a brand new set of exhibition of 13 paintings, Meditallucination, at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen.

We got to spend a ton of time with SF-based Richard Colman at Art Basel in Miami, as Richard helped design the poolside vibes at the Shore Club South Beach. Aka, he transformed the pool chairs into a Colman vision. Now, the artist is set to open "Noise" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, his third solo exhibition at the gallery. The show comes down Saturday, March 15, so go check it!

Marco Mazzoni has always been an artist that has garnered a ton of interest between our staff and readers, maybe because the Italian artist has such an interesting command over his Moleskine drawings. The artist just opened a body of new colored pencil works, "White Days," at B15 Gallery in Copenhagen, open through March 26, 2014. We love the addition of some of the animals in the artist's work over the past few shows, an interesting dimension to already stellar work flow.

We have long been admirers and fans of Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson's work, and love how he has turned abstraction, sculpture, drawing, and design into a cohesive and signature look. This Friday, February 21, 2014, Cody will open "This Place Not For Me" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, coinciding with Richard Colman's show at V1.

Our friend in Scandinavia, Henrik Haven, went to check out the set-up and behind the scenes look at former cover artist MODE 2's new installation and works at Le-Fix Gallery in Copenhagen. As always, MODE's work is full of life, motion, dance, expression, as he is one of the most talented artists to come out of the graffiti world from Europe. We can't wait to see the final works!

Steve Powers has freshly completed a new mural in Copenhagen that pays tribute to the Danish icon, Hans Christian Anderson, whose stories many Americans and Copenhageners grew up with. Located in front of the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, this piece was inspired from Andersen’s fairy tale The Red Shoes,a story about vanity and redemption, themes that easily connect the 19thcentury with the 21stcentury.

The Copenhagen scene continues to be an epicenter in Europe, and our friends at V1 Gallery have been doing their part with great curation and projects. The V1 team has worked with the US Embassy in Copenhagen to have former Juxtapoz cover artist, Steve "ESPO" Powers, create a large-scale, 55-meter long public mural in front of the embassy to be completed on November 6, 2013. While Powers is in Denmark, he will be part of a talk and screening of his film, A Love Letter For You.

Copenhagen-based artist Carl Krull creates often large-scale works using repeated horizontal lines, curving and bending them at certain points to create a final, wavy and distorted image. Carl has also developed a technique using a tube wrapped in paper to create his drawings in a moving car! Watch a video after the jump...
