Photorealist Pastel Drawings by Oliver Jones

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 22, 2014
In his latest series, Love the Skin You're In, British atist Oliver Jones considers the implications inherent in how the media advertises, manipulates and exploits the imagery of flesh. Rendered in colored chalk pastel, the artist's application and delicate handling of his medium mirrors the way in which we apply products to our own skin. Capturing both the translucency and fragility of the skin's surface, Jones' drawings scrutinize subtle variations, colorations and superficialities. The meticulous and time-consuming process by which the artist creates his work is in direct contrast to the immediacy of imagery captured in today's society, and negates the rapid pace at which we are accustomed to consuming images.   

Skirt Flirt "Doubie Vision" by Ho Ryon Lee

Juxtapoz // Sunday, April 01, 2012
Maybe it's our lingering jetlag in London, but these realistic, blurred motion paintings by Ho Ryon Lee are messing with our heads this morning. A little tease, a nice recreation of a dream state from the Seoul, Korea-based artist.

The Work of Jen Mann

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 20, 2012
This week's edition of Easy Like Sunday Morning in our Erotica Department took things a little darker than usual with artist Jen Mann's deadly beauties. Adorned in garlands of alluring yet toxic flowers, at first glance these graceful, lovely women seem to embrace the virtues of purity and feminine fragility. We decided to take a bigger look at Mann's work.

Hyperrealist Paintings by Jason de Graaf

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 17, 2012
We have shown a lot of work in the hyperreal genre over the past month, mostly because we think it is a genre that is getting better and better. But these paintings by Jason de Graaf made us do a major double-take. What you are looking at is a painting within the series Clarity. No kidding, Mr. de Graaf.
