Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets features recent and new work by Marcel Dzama, including three videos inspired by the game of chess, as well as puppets and masks based on the characters, drawings, collages, dioramas, and sculptural works. Dzama has become known for his proliﬁc drawings, which are characterized by their distinctive palette of muted browns, grays, greens, and reds. In recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass three-dimensional work and ﬁlm and has developed an immediately recognizable language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic inﬂuences.

South African-born artist Marlene Steyn is a student at the Royal College of Art in London where she is working towards a degree in Painting. We are really enjoying the fantastical, patchwork of oddly comosted faces and worlds that she depicts in her work.

Los Angeles-based artist Pae White used 48 kilometers of thread in her latest installation at Peckham's South London Gallery. The threads criss-cross between two walls and the roof of the gallery, spelling out the words TIGER TIME and UNMATTERING on either wall. Pae often works with fragile materials to build large-scale sculptural works and installations.

We are really enjoying the street photography of London-based Nils Jorgensen this morning. Nils is a member of 'In-Public,' a group of photographers working in the streets who have a unique ability to see the unusual in everyday and to capture the moment. Like many of his peers, he was heavily influenced by the work of the legendary Paul Strand, Diane Arbus, Andre Kertesz, and Elliott Erwitt.

Joram Roukes has been on our radar for a year now, and we just featured him in our April 2013 issue (on newsstands this week). The Netherlands-based artist opens a solo show, Les Bons Sauvages, at Stolenspace in London, featuring oil paintings that touch on the subject of folklore and tradition, placing human/animal figures in situations ranging from western folkloric festivities to common customs and behavior in a context or environment touching both dream and reality, nature and nurture.

Former Juxtapoz Magazine cover artist Todd James (aka Reas) will be exhibiting a new collection of acrylic paintings at Lazarides Galleries in London. Part of his iconic Somali Pirates series, the New York-based artist's paintings depict pirates, often in headgear and masks, brandishing AK-47s and performing a range of quotidian activities.
Music // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
With his new upcoming album release The Next Day on the way, we have David Bowie on the brain, and we can't help but reminisce about everything from The Labyrinth to Space Oddity. Coincidentally, accompanying this fondness for Bowie is an exhibition presenting a whole array of the musician and cultural icon's career.
