Hiroshi Goto

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2007
If we asked for a show of hands from those who like James Jean's work, we would probably lose count before we got even close to the last hand. His style is delicate and understated and fantastic, a lot like James himself. Most of you probably haven't heard of Hiroshi Goto, but after you see his work we expect just as many hands raised for him. Goto's style is similar to Jean's but with simpler subjects and more dashes of color. Like two artists from the same school of painting: the similarities are there, but the voices are distinct. Get to know Hiroshi's work at his portfolio site. It helps if you can read French and Japanese, but doesn't it always?

October 5th - 7th, 2007, the first of hopefully many annual Baby Tattooville artist schmoozefests went down in Riverside, California at the ridiculously opulent Mission Inn. The 48-hour event paired collectors, press, and art biz folks with 12 top pop artists for demonstrations, social activities, film, food, and field trips. Present on the artist side: Tim Biskup, Gary Baseman, Tara McPherson, Frank Kozik, Luke Chueh, Amanda Vissell, James Jean, Gris Grimly, Jeff Soto, Lola, Ragnar, and Jeffery Scott (1019). Juxtapoz.com web editor Ert O'Hara and Juxtapoz.com news contributor Brad Martin decided at the last minute to pack their bags and take a little road trip to participate. Ert brought back loads of photos and little anecdotes so you can vicariously enjoy her awkward social moments yet avoid the hangover.
