In the Magazine: Erik Mark Sandberg

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Erik Mark Sandberg’s work can instigate obsession. His visual language is built on symbolism and research related to perceptions of time, psychology, physiology, and societal juxtapositions like the epidemic of bling versus blight in mainstream culture. His intentions are steady, but he travels between mediums boundlessly...

In the Magazine: Leif Podhajsky

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
We are all, in our own fashion, constantly collecting. Over time, moments, experiences and visions accumulate within our own cerebral catalogs, compiling a personal database. Events and elements gather in the inner consciousness as we build and house a type of visual anthology. To the creatively inspired, this input can also become an output, almost as effortlessly as it was collected. Leif Podhajsky has mastered this process of visual remixing, creating psychotropic landscapes within his infinitely ethereal imagination. Provoked by defining experiences and visual attractions, Leif arranges these altered perceptions, visually melting reality together with dreamlike repetition and seductively combined overlay.

In the Magazine: The Sucklord

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 16, 2014
Morgan Phillips and his alter ego, The Sucklord, have created a singular sweet spot between fine art and lowbrow. His tools are not traditional paintbrush on canvas but rather a reclaiming of the commercial toy industry, specifically targeting the ubiquitous packaged action figure. The Sucklord reigns supreme over a world that is at the same time fantastical and acutely transparent. Toiling over toxic resins, blister packs and poor working conditions, The Sucklord brings us the best of the worst in reimagined popular culture. 

In the Magazine: Madlib with Freddie Gibbs, Jason Jägel, and Egon

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 14, 2014
For 20 years, Otis Jackson Jr., aka Madlib, has been crafting underground hip hop classics under the guise of countless monikers. Raised in a large family by parents who instilled an insatiable appetite for composing, experimenting and absorbing influences through their own musical careers, he has simultaneously progressed, fashioned and expanded the genres of hip hop and rap music, while developing his own styles in the process. 

In the Magazine: Tom Bunk's Garbage Pail Kids

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Certainly for myself and many of my generation, the mention of Garbage Pail Kids immediately evokes fond nostalgia, a devious grin and all-around consensus that, “Yep, those were the best!” Released in the mid ‘80s, Garbage Pail Kids, a parody of the popular Cabbage Patch Dolls, were the most grotesque, controversial, and awkwardly hilarious collector cards aimed toward the youth audience of the time. An overnight success and goldmine for the Topps Company, they were characterized by their ingeniously ill-fated deaths and cleverly named characters. The artwork was easily digestible and esthetically infectious.

An Update with Jules Julien

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Over the past decade, the worlds of design, fine art and commercial art have become more blurred than ever. We sat down with Jules Julien, one of Europe’s multi-dimensional talents, to discuss his emergence as an international commercial designer whose recognition has forged a bridge to the province of exhibition art.

In the Magazine: Andrew Pommier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Andrew Pommier’s art is like an old buddy from grade school, charming and full of mischief. His imagery resonates in our hearts because, like life, it’s a mix of light and dark, cute and tragic. “It’s funny because it’s sad,” has been a frequent response to his work, but he’s heading in a new direction.

In the Magazine: Kikyz1313

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 30, 2014
Death anxiety is an extremely common, persistent fear of our own destiny, and the inevitable outcome for us all. It's no wonder that this daunting unknown can propose an overwhelming fear as we are constantly attempting to guide and understand our very existence. The perception that we should be afraid of this reality, or the path to it, rather than revel in the beauty of life, seems almost as morbid as death itself...

In the Magazine: Jesse Hazelip in Conversation with Judith Supine

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 27, 2014
From Grand Central Station in New York City, I took the scenic Metro North line that snakes along the Hudson River to the small town of Beacon to visit my old friend, Jesse Hazelip. Originally from the West Coast, Jesse relocated several years ago, substituting big city stimulation for solitude, allowing him more time to focus on artwork and raising his son...

In the Magazine: Jeremy Fish in Conversation with Todd Francis

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 26, 2014
Here is some perspective: I doubt that NASCAR fans respect and adore the artists and designers who decorate those racecars. But look at skateboarding: the guys who design art graphics for skateboards are truly loved by the folks who partake in the culture...
