Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Art director of Joe&Nathan studio in Paris, Jonathan Bréchignac, has created some unbelievably detailed drawings of "carpets" using ballpoint Bic pens.

He finds the long and meticulous process meditative, allowing him to relax and focus. 

Drawings by Joe Biel

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
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."

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 19, 2013

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We happened upon some drawings by Romanian artist Boicu Marinela last night and are enjoying the wiry and doodle-like but precise nature of the lines in her work. Marinela studied painting and graphic arts at a school for arts called "Otav bancila."

The Work of Boo Saville

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 09, 2013
Boo Saville creates artwork out of her interests of the human body, odd photographs and scientific or archeological textbooks. Most of her pieces explore subjects who look to be victims of something bizarre, which intrigues the observer in, "Making the illusion of something felt like looking through a lens at the world, cold and at a distance. So, yes the rejection...I wanted to make work, which was more intimate and that directly addressed the viewer."

Drawings by Kimiaki Yaegashi (aka Okimi)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 05, 2013
We like pizza. A lot. Pizza is delicious and we assume Kimiaki Yaegashi (aka Okimi) thinks so to. We are enjoying this fun series of drawings by the Tokyo-based artist of chicks, weird creatures, babies and...pizza!

Paintings and Drawings by Kirsty Whiten

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 29, 2013
This morning we take a look at the work of Kirsty Whiten. Kirsty initially gained notice for her large-scale portrait paintings and photorealistic drawings but her work has diversified in recent years to include sculpture and photography. Kirsty was profiled in June 2009 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine where she commented on her fascination with the "psychological power that women have over men" and how the 'dominance within relationships is something that's taken and given, in a quite a fragile way."

The Anatomical Work of Nunzio Paci

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 28, 2013
This morning we are enjoying the work of Italian artist Nunzio Paci. Paci lives and works in Bologna. His fascination with anatomy begins with an analytical look, observing the matter while dissecting it. Only then does he move 'from the phenomenon to the complexity of the symbol and of culture.'

The Work of Alejandrina Herrera

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
  Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor. Telling stories about people, animals, and how they interact with their surroundings, Herrera likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces.

Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Using graph paper, a straight edge, a pair of compasses, and self-mixed colored inks, Eugene Andolsek created these wildly colorful and detailed geometric drawings. A stenographer during the day, Andolsek was untrained as an artist and would draw to escape the monotony of daily life while sitting at the kitchen table with his ailing mother. "The release was cathartic and pretty soon he was getting lost in the intricacies of his work and the geometric worlds he created, drawing and coloring for hours on end in a trance." Andolsek passed away in 2008.
