Talking Photo Realistic Graffiti: Exclusive Interview with CASE

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 18, 2010
German artist Andreas von Chrzanowski is better known as CASE, one fourth of the internationally known Ma’claim crew and a damn talented artist on his own. His hyper-realistic aerosol paintings are mind-boggling, so on the eve of his solo show debut, we threw a few questions his way.

Back Talk with Herakut

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 30, 2009
One of our favorite artist duos working today, Herakut (Juxtapoz #97) kindly took some time out of their incredibly busy schedules to play a little game of 20 questions with us (it's like that game you played as a kid, but better.)   Hopefully you have already read the grossly intriguing feature interview with them in our current February 2009 issue, so now you can learn a bit more about this pair that has been described as "schizophrenic in their creative process" who notice "quirky and humorous occurrences mere mortals would overlook."   Not only are they insanely talented, but they're funny too. Enough about what we think of them; read what they have to say in Back Talk with Herakut

New Juxtapoz Poster Art Book

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 11, 2008
The third book in our ongoing series, Juxtapoz Poster Art focuses on the art of screen print posters. In the past 10 years screen-printing has ballooned in popularity and a new class of artists has emerged. These artists stepped away from the psychedelic posters of the '60s and developed their own aesthetic-incorporating everything from hand-drawn type to found objects. Their posters have become sought-after collector items for art and music fans alike. Featured artists include: Jason Munn, Michael Motorcycle, Little Friends of Printmaking, Jesse LeDoux, ThinkMule, Paul Insect, Seripop, Brandy Flower, Aesthetic Apparatus, Decoder Ring, Nick Butcher, Rocky Grimes, Tyler Stout, Tim Gough and more. Juxtapoz Poster Art is published by, and will be available through, Ginko Press.

Photos: Herakut's "Dirty Laundry"

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 01, 2008
Herakut's highly anticipated commission-only, non-sales exhibit, Dirty Laundry, opened at London’s Covent Garden this weekend; unveiling this collection of new works from this German art duo is nothing short of astounding. Blending Hera's scratchy backgrounds with Akut's photorealistic detail, Herakut have created a new series that revolves around the metaphorical use of animal bodies and faces. Branching away from their more common use of dog imagery, Herakut have incorporated rats, wolves, foxes, and yes, a few dogs into their work for Dirty Laundry, allowing commonly held notions for these animals to reflect and intermingle with the human form. The result makes bold statements about the human condition, all the while remembering to have fun and not take it all too seriously. 'Dirty laundry' never looked so appealing. This special and brief showing will remain on view through December 7, 2008. More info at at www.campbarbossa.com and at www.herakut.de If you can't make it to Convent Garden to see their stunning Dirty Laundry in person, don't worry, we've got all you need in more exhibit photos here.

Herakut: Past Works and the New "Dirty Laundry"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 27, 2008
On the day that Herakut's special commission-only, non-sales exhibit titled Dirty Laundry comes to London’s Covent Garden (November 28 – December 7, 2008) we thought we’d give you a visual treat in the form of past Herakut work shown in this great video. For those not in the know, Herakut are a German street and fine art duo, made up of Hera and Akut. The combination of Akut’s photorealistic spray paint with Hera’s distinctively fast, scratchy paint makes for a strangely beautiful union. All the works on display in Dirty Laundry are new, pre-commissioned pieces, so this showing will just be an opportunity to admire Herakut’s increasingly bold, unique body of work.

Some "Dirty Laundry" from Herakut

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 24, 2008
A very special commission-only, non-sales showing titled Dirty Laundry by German duo Herakut comes to London’s Covent Garden November 28 – December 7, 2008. For the uninitiated, Herakut are unlikely collaborative artists extraordinaire, the cunning confluence of aliases Hera and Akut and the finest artistic alliance of Frankfurt and Efurt the modern art world has to offer. It’s not like we’ve actually researched this part but if there’s a finer alliance we’d like to know. All the works on display are new, pre-commissioned pieces. So this is simply an opportunity to come along, hang out, have a fine time, admire Herakut’s increasingly bold, unique body of work—the strangely beautiful union of Akut’s photorealist spray paint and Akut’s distinctively scratchy, sexualised, everyday world.
