Illustrating With Staples: The Work of Baptiste Debombourg

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 17, 2012
'For years, the French artist Baptiste Debombourg has been gradually perfecting his unique technique taking to a level where he’s now able to create detailed re-interpretations of famous classic paintings. Instead of relying on the usual art mediums, like acrylic or oil paints, he takes these simple objects we use in our every day lives and creates thought-provoking works that blend classic and contemporary art...'

Alex Pardee on N8 Van Dyke

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 16, 2012
N8 Van Dyke is no stranger to Juxtapoz, seeing as he is (I think) the only artist to employ a chimp to accompany him for his portrait shoot when he was featured in the magazine. He's also no stranger to being so simultaneously in control and sporadic with ink that it's almost inhuman. And by ALMOST, I mean he's pretty much untouchable.

The Work of Tim Lane

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 15, 2012
'Tim Lane is inspired by the colourful and fascinating ceremonial rites of ancient cultures; how they celebrate the cycle of life and their provisions for death and the afterlife. Other elements of these rites: the music, the transforming quality of performance and characterful faces, can be seen to influence Tim’s paintings. He also explores the idea of faded glory and the fragility of life and civilization...'
