Julie Mehretu's large-scale, mixed media paintings create a dizzying field of layered landscapes to construct colorful and complex abstractions and lines. Drawing from historical and fictional references to architecture, urban planning, societal structures of power, and personal narrative,

The Austrians are coming to Torrance. We have always been huge fans of the duo, following their careers and watching them as they have explored different mediums and approaches to what we always felt was a love for psychedelia and counter-culture activities. Now, Asgar/Gabriel will open "Armed with Fever and Good Health" at the Torrance Art Museum on March 29, 2014.

We know, we know, Alex Katz may be just a tad too fine art establishment for our daily feed on the site, but I have always found his work to be remarkable every time I see it at one of the large art fairs we visit each year. We are sure to see some of this paintings at the Armory Show this week, but if you happen to be in Paris, Katz has what appears to be a wonderful exhibition, "45 Years of Portraits, 1969—2014," at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac up through July 2014. Go check it.

On March 1, Richard J Oliver will open a new body of work, "This Too Shall Pass," at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. The Welsh-born, LA-based painter sat down with us prior to the show to discuss the new body of work, some good shows he has seen over the past few years, why he left Wales, and Ernest Holmes.

Juxtapoz was very fortunate to get to spend time with Sarah Cain and run a print feature of her work in the December 2011 issue, and we have been following her ascent into the fine art word for years. Having showed at institutions like SFMOMA and the Orange County Museum of Art, Cain's new work at Galerie Lelong is some of our favorite to date. Abstraction fixed into structured installation preparation... a really stunning show we can't wait to see in person.

One of our favorite artists of the moment, Jules de Balincourt, has had a busy few months, with works at Victoria Miro in London, at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and now a full museum show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rochechouart, France. The exhibition will present a dozen of paintings from 2003 to now, and will also focus on the artist’s studio, the Starr Studio in Brooklyn, which has served for a few years a serves as a space for performances and concerts, as a gallery for local artist and as a community center.

A few days ago, we showed you the new ink drawings from George Condo's exhibition at Skarstedt Gallery in London, and today we have imagery from Condo's coinciding show at Simon Lee in London. Somewhere, somehow, Kanye bought one for Kim. Or North.

New York-based artist Yigal Ozeri has continued to take hyper-realism to the next level. It's hard to believe that his work isn’t an actual photograph. Capturing solar flares, dreamy light, and contrasting color tones, he’s shown just how far he’s willing to go to capture a moment.

'Painting from direct observation in relatively high-risk and difficult environments, Tower often brings along a body guard. Obviously not shy of a challenge, Tower enthusiastically tackles her subject matter with a die-hard scrutiny...
