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.

Paintings by El Grio

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
This flat and graphic painting style with its emphasis on the flattened perspective and geometric forms creating vibration between the hues is pleasing in its wonkiness. El Grio paints objects that are familiar, yet with an approach that reformats the colors and shapes into an abstraction that is more lively than the initial thing itself . . .

Preview: Chrissy Angliker @ Knoerle & Baettig, Winterthur, Switzerland

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Brooklyn-based, Zurich-born Chrissy Angliker is set to open a new series of drip paintings, Control and Chaos, at Knoerle & Baettig Gallery in Winterthur, Switzerland this Saturday, May 12. As Angliker says of the series, "The focus of this painting style lies in creating a balanced relationship between the controllable and uncontrollable. For every intentional mark, there follows a free-falling drip, challenging it. I am searching for a sense of grace in the transition between these two opposing elements."

The Works of Paris-based Adrien Patout

Juxtapoz // Sunday, April 22, 2012
'I am a self taught artist, living in Paris. My art is influenced by the powerful and awesome flesh’s works of Philippe Pasqua and Jenny Savillel also love the positive energy of Terry Richardon's trashy world, or the disturbing strength and mysticism of Axel Pahlavi's paintings...'

The Work of Henry Asencio

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 02, 2012
Henry Asencio's artwork reveals a contemporary dialogue between the material and the spiritual--the artist, his subject and his subconscious visions derived therein. Agitated by extreme texture and intentional use of color, Henry Asencio unravels an unspoken narrative replete with seemingly incongruent, yet harmonious ideals of quietude and fascinations of that which intensifies the moment.
