San Francisco-based fine artist, Jason Jägel, who has been in the magazine over the years in a variety of ways, just released a new screenprint via his website. Spaces is an 11" x 15", screenprint edition of 45 on 300 gsm Saunders Waterford paper. As Mr. Jägel told us, "With the help of a couple assistants (the erstwhile Charlotte Drury and J.P. McNicholas) studio Jagel has produced a nice silkscreen print! Offered to you 100% artist made and distributed."

This past NBA All-Star Weekend in Houston at the Museum of Fine Art Houston, creative agency Doubleday & Cartwright of Brooklyn (featuring one of our favorites in Grotesk) worked with Nike on a special project that had 50 artists interpret 50 great moments from the life and career of Michael Jordan. Jordan was celebrating his 50 birthday right around the All-Star weekend, and seeing that he represents the absolute height of basketball greatness, D&C had some great artists on board... including Jason Jagel, Lola Dupre, Aldous Massie, Grotesk, Sophia Chang and others contribute.

Juxtapoz friend and San Francisco fine artist, Jason Jägel is set to open a new body of work at Galleri Christoffer Egelund in Copenhagen, Denmark this Friday, October 26, 2012. The Castle & Other Works is a series of paintings that originate as "blotter" paper: a base layer beneath other on-going paintings that naturally accrues random overpaint, test brush marks, notations, inattentive attention and text.

A great surprise in the mail today, an advanced copy of Jason Jagel's collaborative book with Brian McMullen (published by McSweeney's), Hang Glider & Mud Mask. We are huge fans of Jagel's work, and if Daniel Clowes (September 2012 cover artist) says "Beautiful" in regards to a book, it has a good mark already.

When SF-based visual artist Jason Jagel spent the night on the oversized chair at the Stones Throw house back in 2002 the same night Madlib crashed on the couch directly across from him, Jagel knew right away he had stumbled across a unique individual. “I remember Madlib mumbling in his sleep, sounding uncannily, but not surprisingly like his music,” remarks Jagel.

Intricate by nature, Jason Jägel's work brings color and stylization to a new level. Based in San Francisco, he reveals the culture and life of his surroundings into his artwork and succeeds in joining simplicity and detail.
