Drawings by Joe Biel

Illustration // Tuesday, October 28, 2014
This morning we take a look at the drawings of Los Angeles-based artist Joe Biel. His most recent work has increased both in scale and complexity, addressing a theme of poetic collision between beauty and the (sometimes cruel) absurdity of the contemporary world. "This collision produces a variety of situations, ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, all of which reveal a vulnerable sense of humanity."

Humberto Casas Junca's School Desk Drawings

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Artist Humberto Casas Junca draws on classic school desks, combining his detailed drawings of violent events in Colombia with Norwegian black metal logos. Maybe if our drawings were this good when we doodled and carved our desks in school we wouldn't have spent so many recesses in time out....but maybe not.

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 13, 2014
We've shown the incredibly beautiful work of South Korean artist Daehyun Kim before and asked him to create an original illustration for our March 2013 issue of the magazine.

During Italian architect and designer Aldo Rossi's lifetime he accomplished the unusual feat of achieving international recognition in four distinct areas: theory, drawing, architecture and product design and winning the Pritzker Prize in 1990.

New Zealand artist Henrietta Harris' drawings, range in subject from hands, faces, brains, and more are depicted on canvases, t-shirts, and fine print publications.

Drawings by Aubrey Learner

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Aubrey Learner’s intricate watercolor, graphite and ink drawings are metaphors of desire and disgust: the disparate longings for both purity and sexual prowess, and the concurrent disgust at perversion and decay. Juxtaposing contemporary fascinations with sexuality against the various vulgarities associated with reproduction, she explores the imposition of societal mores...

An Update with Jon Fox

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 09, 2014
Today we check in with UK artist Jon Fox, who was featured in our New Contemporary book last year. Fox will be taking part in group show we are excited about, "Égrégore", at Yves Laroche Gallery in Montreal, Canada later this fall. His work often addresses the conflict of emotion: 'heart against head.' Many of his characters occupy a world of tension and turmoil battling with their own significance while the looming presence of a larger restless energy is at work around them.
