The Work of Pierre Paul Pariseau

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 26, 2014
Today we're tripping out on the work of Montreal artist Pierre-Paul Pariseau. His mixed-media art and illustration reminds us of everything and nothing at the same time—familiar yet odd, comfortable yet surreal—Pariseau works with some of our favorite juxtapositions. Check out his new collection of pure pop imagery at his upcoming exhibit in Montreal at Salle de Defusion de Parc-Extension, opening July 2nd, 2014.

123Klan @ Station 16, Montreal

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
A few months back in our print edition, we handed over the tourist agency duties of Montreal to 123Klan, where the French-born, Montreal based "graffiti posse" founded by husband and wife Scien & Mrs Klor in 1992, told us the best places to eat, drink, see art, or get some culture. One of the places they mentioned? Station 16. And you know what? Now 123Klan is opening of paintings at Station 16 from May 8-14, 2014.

A recently opened gallery in Montreal (as recent as June) fell victim to a tactile art heist that is estimated to be worth up to $50,000 in losses. Sometime between November 2nd and November 4th, Station 16 was broken into where thieves took a number of painting, prints and computers. They believe the robbery to be planned as particular works were chosen off the wall by artists such as Labrona, Kevin Ledo, Scaner, Zek One, Whatisadamand Antoine Tavaglione. Fortunately, the works were insured and artists will be compensated, although they are still hoping for the recovery of the stolen art.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Our neighbor has a hedge shaped like several lopsided giant spheres and we once saw a shrubbery carved to look like a sheep. We have never seen anything of the likes of the horticulture art at Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal, an international competition in Montreal, Canada. Mosaiculture, for those of you who were as clueless as us, "is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colorful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials)."
