This weekend, on June 22, Deedee Cheriel will be opening new works alongside Mel Kadel and Femke Hiemstra at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles. We were lucky this morning to get a preview and collection of new works from Cheriel, who in her artist statement notes, "With nuances of East Indian art, Cheriel's use of bold elements – both urban and natural, as well as pop culture – are indications of how we try to connect ourselves to others and how these heroic efforts are episodes of compassion and discomfort."

Juxtapoz contributing editor, Hannah Stouffer, has made a homebase in downtown Los Angeles the past week working on a 40-foot mural on the 6th Street wall at the Standard Downtown hotel. She titled the mural, "E.P.S.T (Existence, Possibility, Space and Time)," noting that "I’ve been drawn to focusing on themes of metaphysical beingness, as of late. I’m still heavily engaged with our natural landscape, due to my upbringing and an an almost overwhelming admiration for that which we came."
