10 People That Prove New Mexico Is America’s Best-Kept Secret Art Destination

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 20, 2015
Traditionally, when you think of art in America your thoughts go to New York’s art scenes in Soho and Williamsburg; iconic metropolitan museums you visited as a kid, like Chicago’s Art Institute or San Francisco’s MoMA; the Getty’s “like”-inducing selfie backdrops in Los Angles; or Wynwood’s graffiti-covered walls in Miami. What usually doesn’t come to mind, however, are Southwestern cities like Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico, but they should.

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 13, 2013
One of our favorite artists we saw this weekend in NYC for Frieze and surrounding fairs was Fay Ku at the Eight Modern booth in Pulse.

We just did a little check up on one of our favorite painters, Los Angeles painter Kent Williams and what he has been working on over the past few years. As you can see, he has been creating some dense, dreamy canvases. We also love that in his bio it mentions that Meg White has collected his work.
