Marco Mazzoni has always been an artist that has garnered a ton of interest between our staff and readers, maybe because the Italian artist has such an interesting command over his Moleskine drawings. The artist just opened a body of new colored pencil works, "White Days," at B15 Gallery in Copenhagen, open through March 26, 2014. We love the addition of some of the animals in the artist's work over the past few shows, an interesting dimension to already stellar work flow.

Italian artist Marco Mazzoni and British painter Lindsey Carr both have an exhibition at Roq La Rue Gallery in Los Angles open now through November 30th, 2013. Marco Mazzoni creates beautifully disturbing drawings, dreamlike snapshots of faces flooded in an incandescent light as if in an overexposed photograph, and encircled by sumptuous flora and fauna. Lindsey Carr’s exquisite watercolor and gouache paintings evoke the specter of Audubon if he had spent time in a Chinese opium den.

The end of year brings us to our closing issue of 2012, and who better than London-based Conor Harrington to grace the cover for a second time (scoring at home, October 2008 was his first cover). We lean heavily on painters and fine artists this issue with pieces on Nicola Verlato, Futura, Julie Heffernan, Marco Mazzoni, Grady Gordon, and Gregory Euclide, plus conversations with Jen Stark, Bob Dob, and a photo essay from the heart of Johannesburg.

Italian artist Marco Mazzoni, who we have featured on the site and will be featured in the December issue of Juxtapoz, just opened a new series of colored pencil works, River of Milk, at Roq La Rue in Seattle. We can't believe it, but this is the solo debut of Mazzoni stateside. What have we Americans been thinking?

We came across some of Marco Mazzoni's new moleskin sketches for his upcoming show at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle. This piece, “The Moralist”, out of colored pencils and pen on paper from his moleskin, is specifically for his show, “The River of Milk”, opening October 12th. Can't wait to see what else he has in store.
