Real-Life Tetris by Michael Johansson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 18, 2014
If you want someone to come tidy your apartment, we think we have found your man in Michael Johansson, an artist who takes a real-life Tetris approach to both public and fine art. The artist has a knack of compartmentalizing the right objects into the right spaces to create incredible collages of no longer used goods in a colorful, eye-popping way. Michael is featured in our current, April 2014 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine.

Cover It in Plastic by Penique Productions

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Barcelona collective Penique Productions are known for filling large spaces, both gallery and public, with colored plastic.

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 10, 2014
Featured in our February 2014 issue, we love to see Olek back in San Francisco, with the installation "I Haven't A Single Explorer On My Planet" at the White Walls Project Space. As with much of Olek's work, there are political undertones and messages to be discovered... 

Walking Into a Gif: Installations by Dominique Pétrin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 06, 2014
Have you ever tried walking into an 8-bit wonderland? An animated gif? Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Dominique Pétrin creates these fantastic psychedelic, immersive installations that seem to swallow you whole when you walk into them. I don't do drugs, but if I was accidentally dosed at a party, I would prefer Pétrin's style of hypnosis.

Like some sort of three-dimensional neon and pastel Mandala, artist duo Nicole Andrijevic and Tanya Schultz use sugar, pigment, polystryene, wax, modeling clay, paper, plastic, found objects, wire, beads, glitter, and much more to fill floors and spaces with their Candyland colored worlds.

Hair Drawings and Installations by HONG CHUN ZHANG

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
China-born, Kansas-based artist Hong Chun Zhang has a fascination with hair, whether large format charcoal drawings of hair that extend to the floors of a gallery, or her Hairy Object series that puts hair in absurd situations, the work is both well-rendered and fascinating. Some people feel repulsed by a clump of hair, and Zhang embraces it.
