In Erotica: The Work of Lou Ros

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 09, 2011
'At the beginning, because my work is mainly based from photos, it is a selection similar to that of a photographer, capturing a moment, an emotion, something… The transition to painting, transforms this thing again as I see it or how I feel it. I build each painting slowly in my head, quickly on the canvas, but with many short breaks to think about the result…'

Drawings by Michael Swaney

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 05, 2011
Michael Swaney's drawings celebrate a playful emphasis on color, pattern, and line. His work is strange and renders the familiar in a manner that brings it into its own world filled with vibrant hues and bending perspectives.

Time Travel with William P. Immer

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 01, 2011
We are getting a kick out of these paintings by William P. Immer, where he takes classic portraits of famed people of nobility and political power, and adds a contemporary element or three to each piece. Benjamin Franklin, for instance, gets a Breathe-Right strip upon his nose. Funny, imaginative work.

Paintings by Sweden's Fredrik Akum

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 10, 2011
We just came across the paintings of Swedish artist Fredrik Akum today, and around the office, we are quite impressed with the work. Using acrylic, the young Akum looks as if he is recreating a photo filter application. A really nice collection of painting after the jump . . .
