As you maybe saw on the site last week, we did a studio visit with San Francisco-based artist, Mars-1, as he prepared for his solo show, "Toward A Distant Dawn," at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles. That show opened this past Saturday, and we got in the old van and drove down to the Southland to see our neighbor show off his new paintings and impressive bronze sculptures. Don't try and lift those. They are heavy.

We recently stopped by New Image Art for the opening reception of “This Crazy Life,” a group exhibition featuring Gregory Bojorquez, Patrick Martinez, and Michael Vasquez. Each piece in the show encompasses the commonalities of the rough lifestyles that are faced on a day-to-day-bases in inner/urban cities. Photos and more after the jump...

This past weekend we stopped by Merry Karnowsky Gallery for the opening of Mark Whalen’s latest exhibition “Stranded.” From his beginnings in Sydney Australia, Mark Whalen has evolved into an artist whose meticulously crafted paintings and sculptures examine the human experience by exploring invention, communication, emotion, sexuality, interaction and ritual – all with an undercurrent of quiet absurdity. Photos and more after the jump.

This past weekend we stopped by Corey Helford Gallery for the opening reception of their latest group exhibit “Pop-Eyeconic.” Looking to explore the iconic characters who define popular artistic symbolism, we have asked an ambitious and diverse group of artists - from street to surreal to New Classicist - to provide one new work each, featuring their choice of POP ICONS that have special meaning to them, but rendering the icons in each artist’s own particular style and placing them in situations relevant to that artist’s usual subject matter.

Cleon Peterson, who we have been huge fans of for years (and recently contributed a surfboard to our UNIV x Chandran Gallery x Juxtapoz fundraiser for Waves For Water), just opened a fantastic show at New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles a few weekends back. We checked it out, and through the throngs of friends and followers, enjoyed the packed house.

A few weeks back, while the Juxtapoz team was in Los Angeles for the LA Art Book Fair, we stopped by the opening of Victor Castillo's newest work, "Pure Pleasure," along with Mauricio Garrido and Claudia Pena at Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Castillo once again was in top form, not only with a few paintings in the front of the gallery, but his dynamic black and white serigraph pieces were showstoppers unto themselves, along with a beautiful mural in the back of the gallery.
