Alexa Meade: Painting in Real Life

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 30, 2011
We have shown the work of Alexa Meade on the site before, but we saw it again this morning and wanted a reminder on just how remarkable the results are of her real-life paintings can be. She covers her subjects in layers of paint until they in effect become a painting that exists in reality.

The Art of Mazzarella Thomas

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 23, 2011
Mazzarella Thomas' work reminds us a bit of Chris Johanson, with its own twist. Thomas' paintings use a very voyeuristic perspective in which we seem to be peeking into the lives of his little characters. We observe business proceedings, artists tediously ruminating over paintings, odd urban landscapes, bedroom push-ups . . .
