The Art of Zheng Hongxiang

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 15, 2011
These stunning works by young Chinese painter, Zheng Hong Xiang (b 1983) have been making their way around the web over the past few weeks, and this painting you see here is quite dynamic. The deep reds caught our attention first, and the style was something we felt our readers would enjoy. More after the jump . . .

The Art of Chadwick and Spector

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 07, 2011
Look closely and you can see it. The art duo of Chadwick & Spector have, since 1994, been working on "Museum Anatomy," a project in which they recreate paintings onto the human body. They create a final product of Chadwick, sometimes "unrecognizable as a human form, with an elaborate, detailed painting covering a portion of his body." Images after the jump . . .

The Paintings of Jacek Yerka

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 01, 2011
It is always nice to see a skilled fantasy surreal painter, as is the case with artist Jacek Yerka. His paintings, at times, look like the inspiration of for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Delicatessen. That is a very good thing. Look at a mini-portfolio after the jump . . .

Photorealist Paintings of Steven Albert

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 30, 2011
We just stumbled across the photorealist paintings of Steven Albert, and as they were containing street shots of San Francisco, incorporating local graffiti and local businesses, we did some more research and found more of his body of work. More looks after the jump . . .

The Photograph Art of Thorsten Brinkmann

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 24, 2011
We have seen images of German-based Thorsten Brinkmann's work in the past, but we hadn't fully understood how big his body of work was. The element of old mastery style portraits is what initially makes the work familiar, but of course, what is going on in the photographs is something conceptual and not typical in the least. More images after the jump . . .

Katy Grannan at Fraenkel Gallery

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 24, 2011
We were spreading out our coverage of recent San Francisco shows, when two photography aficionados that do work with Juxtapoz mentioned how great the current Fraenkel Gallery exhibition with Katy Grannan. We had checked the show out last week, and were taken by the absolute perfect, nearly dizzying clarity and presentation of her subjects. More after the jump . . .

Juergen Teller at Johann Konig in Berlin

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 21, 2011
We know Ron Howard got unprecedented access to film The Da Vinci Code" at the Louvre, and it was hard to get that nod of approval. Apparently, when shooting nude women for fine art sake (because let's face it, Tom Hanks was not in fine Oscar-mode playing Robert Langdon) and being Juergen Teller means you can shoot in the Louvre with your naked subjects all you want. More after the jump . . .

ED TEMPLETON at Mucsarnok Kunsthalle Ernst Muzeum in Budapest

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 17, 2011
We were thinking when first hearing of Ed Templeton's new exhibition at the Ernst Muzeum in Budapest, Hungary, that Ed had really captured the European audience over the past 5 or so years. And then we read the press release from the Ernst, stating Ed was "most interesting artist to surprise Europe in recent years." More after the jump . . .
