The work of Rob Sato and Joseph To (Juxtapoz #104) is now on display in a showing curated by longtime friend, David Choe. Both these artist's unique renderings are simultaneously humorous, beautiful, and bizarre. We'd expect nothing less from these guys.

Meet Steven Assael. Assael’s work caught the eye of art student Heathir Blackwell, who writes: “You can feel the texture with your eyes. The hair looks smooth and light, the skin fleshy and real. The way he renders his figures gives them a certain glow, as if the light is emanating from under their skin and shining out towards the viewer.”

KQED’s art program, Spark, profiled David Choe (Juxtapoz cover #72) in this video segment the artist recently posted on his blog, stating, “See how skinny I was when I got out of jail in this clip, KQED just sent to me!” True, Choe is the contemporary art world’s favorite badass, having survived time in a Japanese jail, amongst many other extreme situations. We see these as fuel for his amazing artistry. ”I’ve had the door shut on my face so many times. Rejection, rejection, rejection. And I don’t really care to get my art critiqued. And I don’t really care what you think about it,” Choe states in the video. “No one goes to museums anyways, so it’s this whole attitude and I just steal a can of paint and go out and paint all this stuff of the freeway and a you know, a thousand people will see it before 8 o’clock on the 101 freeway than the 10 or hundred people that would have ever seen it over the course of a month in an art gallery.” Word. Speaking of gallery work, get all the info on Choe's upcoming solo in China, Deathblossom, at PYO Gallery here.
