Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age

Photography // Thursday, January 29, 2015
Among my all-time favorite photographs have always been Ed Ruscha’s aerial landscape shots of Los Angeles parking lots and stadiums. Flying high in commercial airplanes merely teases at the intricacies and structure that man has bestowed on earth, the geometric balance and spatial suburbanization of Southern California. That is what makes this book, Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age, so stunning and historically relevant.

From January 29 – February 1, 2015, the third edition of the LA Art Book Fair opens at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and director Shannon Michael Cane and coordinator Jordan Nassar are behind one of the great art events of the year. Print does matter, and these guys set the stage.

Book Reviews: Mark Mothersbaugh "Myopia"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Legally blind until age seven when he got his first pair of glasses, Mothersbaugh started fashioning his own version of the world at the outset and has not stopped. Though best known as frontman for Devo (of “Whip It” fame), collaborating with filmmaker Wes Anderson, and building soundtracks for children’s shows like Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, Yo Gabba Gabba! and Rugrats, Mothersbaugh is first and foremost a visual artist. 

Book Reviews: "Epitome" by Nick Cave

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 22, 2015
“Out of a riot comes a dream.” After the collective pain of the LA Riots of ’92 sparked by the Rodney King trial, Nick Cave felt depressed: “I remember thinking that my identity is really only protected in the privacy of my own home. That the moment that I leave this space, I could be just another profile. Then I was thinking about myself as a black male, and that on top of art, on what I’m trying to be as an artist… 

In the Magazine: Maria Kreyn

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Through an arched window, I watched twilight fall softly on the surrounding viking bay and smooth granite islands until a door hinge creaked from across the cavernous room. Momentarily breaking my enchantment, a set of double doors opened slowly and poured forth a fluorescent glow. A floating head emerged from the beams and materialized into an angelic face whose gaze pierced the air before slipping back into retreat, closing the doors again.

In the Magazine: Sam Friedman

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 16, 2015
Sam Friedman is blowing up like a supernova. Working within a system of his own design, he’s been on a steady streak of creating images that have an astronomical impact on the eye. Colors pop and landscapes dance as his paint moves around the canvas spontaneously. He works intuitively, but there is a layer of control, an effortlessness that can only result from a balance of flow and restraint.

"Ed Emberley" by Todd Oldham and Caleb Neelon

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 16, 2015
Ed Emberley’s drawings influenced a generation of artists who grew up to be the influencers of today. Since the ‘60s, his popular how-to-draw books molded millions of young artistic minds, and if you ever made a thumbprint drawing, Emberley is the man to thank.

Frame on Frame: The Hand-Drawn Animations of Jake Fried

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 15, 2015
Jake Fried recently posted a new video. The artist creates his experimental animations by slowly adding countless layers to his illustrations. His materials include White-Out, coffee, ink, gouche, and paper. The Boston-based artist hand-drawn style and unpredictable stream-of-conciousness content are almost overwhelming...

The Quiet Life with Andy Mueller

Design // Thursday, January 08, 2015
When we first met Andy Mueller, he was a photographer with this little side-project clothing line, The Quiet Life, and it sat, well, quietly in the background. Today, The Quiet Life has grown into a full-force brand with a wide array of apparel and accessories that reflect not only Andy’s history in skate and design but fine art as well.

Matija Cop's Unorthodox Fashion Labratory

Design // Wednesday, January 07, 2015
Matija Cop’s designs inspire instant intrigue. What are they made of? Who is the mastermind behind these unbelievable shapes? We tracked down the young Croatian designer, who is not only inspired by throwback futuristic films, but also by literature and architecture. Reminiscent of exoskeletons mixed with futuristic Elizabethan regalia, there is no line between art and fashion in his designs. They are one and the same.
