Chris Scarborough's Eerie Figures

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Nashville-based artist Chris Scarborough has continued to keep himself busy creating his pristine graphite images for shows all over the US (and world!). His obvious techincal skill combines with slightly eerie subjects--like missile-toting clouds hovering in midair, contorted anime figures and girls submerged in amorphous white voids--create a tangible sense of uneasiness through fantastical imagery.

120 Designs: Gerald the Paper Dog

Illustration // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
In an ambitious project, 105 international artists have been brought together to give their interpretations of the same form, "Gerald," a paper dog. Over a two-year period the collection has amassed an impressive 120 different versions in a spectrum of styles from many different designers.

Alex R. Kirzhner Illustration

Illustration // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Alex R. Kirzhner's drawings are almost painfully detailed, exhibiting a glorious mastery of flow and subtle gradations of graphite. Kirzhner is based in New York and is also a photographer, which may explain some of his excellent use of black and white. Exhibiting regularly in California and variuos other states, Kirzhner has made a name for himself with these soft, fantastical drawings, and his work can be seen currently at Spoke Art's Moleskine show in San Francisco.  

Dark Visions from Iv Solyaev

Illustration // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
These otherworldly illustrations by Russian artist Iv Solyaev hearken to sources like Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and Chris Cunningham's "Rubber Johnny." Rendered in a grainy, greyscale, these figures seem to be only half-emerging, their gnarled, alien body parts obscured as if in a mist. These creatures seem to be bizarre hybrids of dolls, monsters, mushrooms, demons and animals, all morphed together seamlessly into some new frightening form. Beautiful, strange and stunning.

Artist Interview: Cannon Dill

Illustration // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Cannon Dill is a Bay Area illustrator and muralist whose sketchy, black-and-white drawings have a very tactile, folkloric feel. Cannon's oeuvre is heavily focused on the interactions of nature and the urban spirit, a conflict that finds grounding in his work translating drawings to large-scale murals. He recently had a solo show at Oakland's LeQuiVive Gallery and he has collaborated with other well-known painters and street artists such as Zio Ziegler.

The Works of Andre Petterson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Vancover based artist Andre Petterson attempts to capture the essence of a split-second in time. His current photography-based work explores various themes of lighting to create elements of mystery. Rembrandt and the Dutch masters’ use of light have strongly influenced Petterson; important elements are highlighted and the mind must fill in the rest.

The Works of Morgan Spry-Young and Daniel Giantomaso

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
We love these collaborative works between Morgan Spry-Young and Daniel Giantomaso because you have to really focus on each piece to find a narrative and figurative elements. From our research, it appears both work under a moniker of Star Gods Press from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Mark Whalen 'I'll Meet You in the Middle' LA Studio Visit

Illustration // Monday, December 09, 2013
We recently dropped by Mark Whalen's Los Angeles based studio to check out his newest work before sending it off to Singapore, for his solo show 'I'll Meet You in the Middle', which opens this Friday, December 13th with Black Arts Projects at Future Pefect Gallery in Singapore. 'As complex as the cosmos or the workings of the human mind, Whalen’s pieces resemble elaborate puzzles or labyrinths, set up by the artist to challenge ones understanding of their own place in life...'
