The Work of Marc Trujillo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Nothing says Americana and 4th of July like a good painting of a KFC and a stereotypical mall scene. Marc Trujillo's paintings are exactly what we wanted to find this morning; well-rendered scenes of banal "anywhere America"; the fast food stops, the malls, the parking lots that are truly the fascinating and all-encompassing shared experiences that we as Americans can relate to. Brilliant work.

"Between the Lines": Ian Davenport @ Art Plural Gallery, Singapore

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Ian Davenport's "Puddle Paintings" currently on view at Art Plural Gallery engage in controlled experiments. Balancing between chance and intent, the works are a direct reflection upon the materiality of the paint and the process of creating the finished panels.

The Paintings of Francesca Bifulco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 30, 2012
We love being blown away on a Saturday morning, and the paintings of Rome, Italy and USA-based fine artist Francesca Bilfuco are full of incredible skill and unique styles, we just can't help but want to get on a plane and fly to her show in Tokyo this August. 

The Work of Michael Kagan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
New York City-based Michael Kagan makes us remember why we love space travel in the first place; it documents well, even if it is oil on linen pieces based on photographs. He has a whole wonderful series of large scale paintings of NASA space missions, all created with both figurative and abstract flourishes.

Paintings for a Blind Man: The Work of Roy Nachum

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
This past week, as we would walk back to our hotel on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, we were struck by a billboard that featured a gorilla roar juxtaposed (hey-o) with a little girl screaming. It was remarkably striking, and one of the reasons we loved it was that we knew it was the work of fine artist, Roy Nachum, who just wrapped up a solo show in NYC at Joseph Nahmad. What makes it even more remarkable is that the work is layered with Braille.

New Paintings by MARGARITA GEORGIADIS

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
We just ran into a new body of work from Margarita Georgiadis, who just showed at Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane, Australia this past May. A mixture of abstract flashes mixed with figurative elements of flashing moments caught on canvas, Georgiadis' work is both haunting and refreshing, a nice collection of oil on canvas works that are both psychological and physical.

Repetition, variation in detail, and simple forms are some of the charming qualities that draw you into these select drawings by James Ulmer. Each work reinvents simple characters or gestures forming patterns that span the entire page.

Paintings by Dan Beard

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Sometimes, you just want a very well created oil painting, and English painter Dan Beard has a fantastic abstract style in which he creates his portraits. The artist has shown extensively throughout Europe, including England, numerous solo shows throughout Helsinki, Finland, and Iceland.

New Banksy Paintings and Outdoor Works

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Every few months, you get a Banksy piece popping up in public, a nice witty thing that circulates the web and gets everyone in a tizzy. But you rarely get to see a new chunk of Banksy paintings get posted on his site in a grouping, and the Bristol, UK-born artist just gave us a nice update of what he gets done in the studio. We always liked his "Sorry: The Lifestyle You Ordered is Currently Out of Stock" motto.
