We think there is probably no better way to celebrate Earth Day here on the Juxtapoz website than with the paintings of artist Josh Keyes! The February, 2010 cover artist has a handful of fantastic new work on his website.

Josh Keyes has been a favorite of many of our readers over the past half decade. From his original base in Oakland to his new studio outside of Portland, Keyes has become synonymous with a certain style of environmental awareness and approach, depicting animals in a post-apocalyptic world with humans but existing within the infrastructures created by us. The former cover artist just released a new series of paintings under the moniker, "The Far Side of the World—Old Ones", part of an ongoing series released on his site throughout 2014.

Based in Portland, Oregon, artist Josh Keyes' style borrows heavily from the intricate diagrams and detailed illustrations often seen in science textbooks, showing cross sections of improbable habitats populated by species from very disparate environments. His paintings convey a fantastic sense of movement frozen in time, like the posed dramas preserved in the static dioramas of a natural history museum. Over the years, Keyes' vision has evolved into a signature blend of eco-surrealism and dystopian themes, a collection of scenes culled from a none too distant future of ecological disintegration and chaos caused by human waste and indifference to the natural world.

Februrary 2010 cover artist, Josh Keyes, always garners attention when releasing a new body of work or print, and on Monday, July 16th at 11AM PST, Keyes will release his new print, Sirens. The print will be signed and numbered in an edition of 150 on archival Giclee on Optima One 100% cotton paper (300 gsm weight, sized at 18"x24" with deckled edges. What we like in particular is Keyes' posting process pics for the image on his blog this past week.

Something for the Arizona crowd to look forward to. Portland, Oregon-based fine artist Josh Keyes will be opening Above and Below at the University of Arizona's Joseph Gross Gallery in Tucson starting on May 21, 2012. As the Gallery notes, "Above and Below dissects into a syncopated and practiced arrangement of uncommon encounters. Keyes’ creatures embody global political and social upheaval while poised to face the colossal summit of civil decay."

Josh Keyes opened a new solo show, Migration, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this past weekend. We stopped by for the opening, because, as you know, they don't like to show you all the Keyes' pieces until opening night. A nice collection of works, including our favorite one here, is on display through November 19, 2011.
