If you want someone to come tidy your apartment, we think we have found your man in Michael Johansson, an artist who takes a real-life Tetris approach to both public and fine art. The artist has a knack of compartmentalizing the right objects into the right spaces to create incredible collages of no longer used goods in a colorful, eye-popping way. Michael is featured in our current, April 2014 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine.

We kick off another month with a look at our new April 2014 issue, featuring the bright, playful works of Philadelphia's Andy Rementer. Rementer has done great work for magazines we like such as the New Yorker and Apartamento in the past, and we are very excited to have his work on the cover of our April issue.

This exhibition came down this past month in Stockholm, but we still had some great shots from Henrik Haven that he took of Michael Johansson's "Shades and Variables" at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom. As the gallery notes, Johansson is "an installation artist obsessed with the investigation of spatial possibilities. Everyday objects are dismantled, re-organized and perfectly arranged into color-coordinated puzzles, filling out select voids of any dimension."

This past winter, Michael Johansson, famous for his "real-life Tetris" public and museum installations, opened "Familar Abstractions" at Vigeland Museet in Olso, Norway. During the preparation for that show, our friend and contributor Henrik Haven caught up with Johansson at his studio in Malmø, Sweden. Even in his space, everything has a place, in its right place.
