One of our favorite artists, SF-based Jason Jägel, just opened a new exhibition, The Castle and Other Works, at Copenhagen's Christoffer Egelund Gallery. Juxtapoz contributor, Henrik Haven went and checked out both the opening and the installation, and we have a few photos for you to check out. . .
Juxtapoz // Monday, October 22, 2012
Juxtapoz friend and San Francisco fine artist, Jason Jägel is set to open a new body of work at Galleri Christoffer Egelund in Copenhagen, Denmark this Friday, October 26, 2012. The Castle & Other Works is a series of paintings that originate as "blotter" paper: a base layer beneath other on-going paintings that naturally accrues random overpaint, test brush marks, notations, inattentive attention and text.

We have always loved the work of Danish artist, Armsrock, featuring him in the magazine when he was doing brilliant street works of everyday people in their normal everyday environments. We are a litlte late to the game on these, but the artist created these fantastic light interventions for his series "Markinger", where he projected engravings done with an etching needle on black Pani slide. The project was done at a train station in 2010 in Copenhagen.

No question, there aren't many artists that pique our interest quite like Todd "REAS" James. For the past few years, his technicolor portraits of cartoon modern day pirates and contraband, with no expression and done in a flat, abstract style, are a nice counter-balance to the millions of images we see on news networks depicting contemporary warfare. James just opened Free To Be You & Me at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen...

V1 Gallery is proud to present Free To Be You & Me a solo exhibition by Todd James. The exhibition opens tonight, October 5 at the gallery's Copenhagen space. Luminous colored Somali pirates, smoking cigarettes as the sun sets, drinking tea, making hostage demands on satellite phones, brandishing AK 47’s and rocket propelled grenades populate Todd James new body of work.

We are fully in that time of the year, where European cities are getting some very fine mural makeovers from some of the best contemporary muralists in the world, and Copenhagen got a fine treatment from the likes of Spanish artist, and Juxtapoz favorite, ARYZ. Henrik Haven caught the mural as it was being painted, and set us some great in-progress and completed shots.

Aryz is currently in the process of adding color to some bare brick in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artist is participating in one of the many street art festivals going on around the globe, this one being the Galore Festival. From here, it looks like an image of a man getting choked by a woman, although it could be a passionate hug from behind? Completed mural coming soon!
