Black and White Works by Kilian Eng

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
We kick of 2013 with one of our favorite artists of the moment, Swedish illustrator Kilian Eng. Featured in our magazine in the past, and on our site a bunch, we love his new series of black and white, science-fiction inspired works. Seems like Eng took some effective Moebius pills, and there is nothing wrong with that.

The Works of Shanghai's Mojo Wang

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Our favorite pieces from the Shanghai, China-based Mojo Wang are the ones that do not feature faces. His newest work, People Mountain, People Se, feature grayscaled characters, no faces, saluting and communicating in unison. Maybe the theme of anonymity will carry us through 2013?

The Works of Lori Pratico

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 01, 2013
"Through my artwork, I attempt to modernize the idea of “portraiture” Whether it be my subject or the style of my portraits, my goal is to create work that is both relevant and engaging. Being self taught there are no rules in my artwork. I create what to me, looks good. I experiment with different materials and resources and my only concern is the result, not the method I used to get there." Lori Pratico

She's Full of Colour: The Works of Julia Mai

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 29, 2012
We have never been to Iceland, but we can only assume, especially with the artistic output from the island nation, that there is a good bit of creative discourse going on amongst the young people. They have standout bands and artists who call Iceland home, and we are mesmerized by the works of Julia Mai and her She's Full of Colour series. Mistakes and freedoms bring the portraits to life, and we appreciate good linework matched with abstraction.
