It look us a second to realize that these landscapes by London-based photographer Carl Warner were far from conventional. Shooting the human forms in his studio and then later placeing them together in Photoshop, Warner has created a very interesting series that examines both our view of ourselves and ourselves in relation to our bodies and fellow humans.

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."

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."

Wish we could be in London to see former Juxtapoz cover artist, James Jarvis, and his new exhibition, Objects in Space. The show will see a new body of original artworks by the London-based illustrator that feature his Sphere character at a number of iconic international skatespots.

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.

With feature content highlighting international icons, Horfe, Roid, Stephen Schuster, Gary Warnett, Sean Vegezzi, Smart Crew and sprinkles of nudity, explosions and a few surprises, their collaboration into the world of print is coming out swinging. We speak with director and founder, Freddie Fraser Forsyth, about the new publication.
