In conjunction with our special print curation series with Art.com, today we look back at one of our selected artists, Mario Wagner, and his interview feature in our October 2011 issue. Wagner has always been one of our favorite artists who works in both personal and commercial work, combining collage, futurism, and an almost James Bond-spy like quality to each piece. The best part, these styles are now available as prints on Art.com.

We are huge fans of Mario Wagner, books, the New York Times, the New York Times Sunday Book Review, Jonathan Lethem, and especially, Thomas Pynchon. All these things came together this past weekend: Wagner did two illustrations to accompany Lethem's essay on Pynchon's new novel, "Bleeding Edge," in the Sunday Review. All is well in the universe.

Breeze Block Gallery is proud to present Controlled Spaces, an all-new collection of work by Berkeley-based artist Mario Wagner. Wagner has always been an artist that Juxtapoz admires, a rare mix of collage and fine art that takes aesthetics of James Bond, vintage sci-fi, and Mad Men and combines it with abstraction, surrealism, and landscape exploration. The show will open in Portland on August 1, 2013.

San Francisco-based Mario Wagner, featured in our October 2011 issue, just released two new prints (available in a set), Portal and Sighting, through BLK/MRKT. The prints feature Wagner's signature clean, collaged look with radiant color pulling the viewer's attention. We think we just found new prints for the office.
