Cleon Peterson "There Is A War" @ The Outsiders, London

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 06, 2013
If you happen to get yourself to London in the month of July, there is a good art show to check out: Cleon Peterson, "There Is A War," at London's The Outsiders. "Cleon Peterson's nightmarish tableaux feature scenes of a barbaric holocaust, where might is right and the weak are merely souls with holes for the strong to torment and abuse. Deviance is the norm, and the displaced individual is forced to navigate this wicked world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs."

Charlie Isoe "In The Bad Bush" @ Lazarides, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 25, 2013
We are very excited to see that Australian-born, Berlin-based Charlie Isoe (cover artist from April 2010), is back in the exhibition swing. This Friday, June 28, Isoe will open a new solo show, In the Bad Bush, at Lazarides Gallery's Rathbone space in London. As the gallery notes, "After inexplicably vanishing from the art scene for over three years... [Isoe draws] from the isolation of Western Australia to his itinerant youth and lifestyle of abandon, and quickly established himself as a pioneer in his field."

Vamp gets Vamped...

Graffiti // Tuesday, June 25, 2013
This dapper, well-off individual whose given name is Kristian Holmes was a notorious graffiti that wrote Vamp and was sentenced to a three-and-a-half year bid last week from the courts in London. The father of two worked as a surveyor making £60,000-a-year. For seven years he relentlessly bombed the south-east of London and clean trains with his simple letters. The courts said he was responsible for £250,000 in damage and once again convicted a graffiti writer to more time than many violent crime offenders receive.

As part of the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, a performance art piece was conducting by a group of artists posing as researchers as they "found" a "beached" whale on the shores of the Thames in Greenwich. The group, Captain Boomer, promptly removed the hyperreal whale and placed it at The Royal Naval College at Cutty Sark through June 29.

We really love this pigeon. We also really enjoy the rest of the London-based Lyvia Alexandra's drawings. They are light hearteded, honest, and fun.

Bjork's "Atmospheric Reentry" Headpiece by Maiko Takeda

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
The person singing underneath that crazy, incredible looking headpiece is Bjork. Surprised? Probably not, if you showed us a picture of a woman singing in a crazy outfit that would probably be our first guess too. The headpiece though, was designed by Maiko Takeda and is one of a series of similar pieces entitled Atmospheric Reentry. Maiko grew up in Tokyo and moved to London to study Jewelry Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She is currently working on her Masters in Millinery at the Royal College of Art.
