Former Juxtapoz cover artist, and continually one of our favorite fine artists working today, French-born, Barcelona-based artist Miss Van is set to open a new exhibition, Wild at Heart, at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica on Saturday, August 11, 2012.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
There are endless possibilities in the universe of collage art, and we really like what Debra Hampton has done with this series of works.

We have shown the work of Los Angeles-based artist Deedee Cheriel in the magazine and on the site before, but never a profile of a grouping of work. And why not today we ask? We have always enjoyed the Pacific Northwest influence mixed with animal imagery in Cheriel's work, and this series of works only strengthens that admiration. She is currently showing in Unnatural - Natural History at the Royal West of England Academy.
