New Paintings by Andrew Salgado

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 27, 2013
We are enjoying new oil paintings by Canadian-born, London-based painter Andrew Salgado this morning, a very classical artist who creates beautiful portraits. Salgado says of his works, "I am interested in how my paintings might operate independently from their literal figurative foundation and engage with an exploration of color, reduction of forms, and triumph of substance as imbued with meaning and metaphor, overt, and suggestive."

"Systems": Dieter Rams for Braun @ Walter Knoll Showroom, London

Design // Tuesday, November 26, 2013
German industrial designer, Dieter Rams, has an extensive career of making product designs for Braun. Das Programm, the store and archive of Dieter Rams‘ work for Braun, curated an exhibition entitled "Systems," where they asked 34 graphic designers to respond to “systematicity of Braun Design," in the vein of Rams' classic work for the company. The resulting poster art designs, ranging from classic Braun designs to products that never saw production, are up in the Walter Knoll showroom in Clerkenwell, London, through December 31, 2013.

Jules de Balincourt "Itinerant Ones" @ Victoria Miro, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Victoria Miro is delighted to present Jules de Balincourt's Itinerant Ones, the first solo exhibition in the UK for the Paris-born, New York- based painter. Known for his carefully constructed paintings that move effortlessly between abstraction and figuration, the imagined and the real, this new body of work sees De Balincourt moving away from direct references to current social, political or popular culture, and instead depicting a world in which indications of specific place or time are absent.

Typewriter Portraits by Keira Rathbone

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 13, 2013
You write famous novels on typewriters, not make portraits. Oh wait, you make portraits now, too? Like some sort of analog ASCII art, London-based Keira Rathbone has figured out a way to manipulate a typewriter to create these very well-constructed portaits and "drawings." Super Impressive.

Portraits Made from Thousands of Tiny Objects

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
London-based artist Joe Black's portrait of Barack Obama uses thousands of black and white toy soldiers. His other portraits use everything from small toys and chess pieces to nuts and bolts depending on the subject and the message he is trying to portray. The toy soldiers in the Obama piece, titled Shoot to Kill, "could indicate the ethos of good and evil, or right and wrong that is embedded in America's dealings with Eastern nations."
