The Work of David Jien

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 13, 2013
Based in Los Angeles, CA, David Jien received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in 2009. As a first generation Taiwanese-American, a veteran tagger who spent time in jail, and a recent art school graduate, Jien utilizes the unique facts and experiences of his life as raw material for the fantastic stories and characters that are represented in his work.

Eric Yahnker "EBONY & BENGHAZI" @ Ambach & Rice, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
One of the most interesting, irreverent, humorous, and talented artists working in galleries today has to be Eric Yahnker, who controls a colored pencil and critique of pop culture better than anyone. The May 2011 cover artist just opened a brilliant new show, Ebony & Benghazi, at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles, featuring both massive colored pencil works on paper, installation pieces, and apparently, a naked woman hanging out in the gallery.

Paintings by Laura Krifka

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 06, 2013
Laura Krifka makes paintings, sculptures and videos that dissect common fantasies of power and identity. Her work is both gorgeous and terrifying often dealing with fantasies of beauty and nobility, myth, power, identity seduction and the American dream, exploring the relationship of light and dark through a range of influences from art history to fairyland with a post-modernist twist.

Los Angeles close to ending decade-long mural moratorium

Street Art // Friday, August 30, 2013
On Wednesday, a 13-2 vote was made by the City Council setting the wheels in motion to lift a decade-long restriction on murals in Los Angeles. Since 2002, the mural moratorium had been enforced, which originally was intended to curb proliferating advertising. With the new rules that are expected to be finalized by the end of next week, artists will be required to register their project and pay a $60 fee. The mural will be restricted to industrial and business zones, excluding single-family residential homes and those that have any commercial messages.

Hammer Projects: Maya Hayuk

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
One of our favorite artists, Maya Hayuk, will be creating a new site-specific mural on the Lobby Wall of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for her first one-person US museum exhibition. "Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.
