Paintings for a Blind Man: The Work of Roy Nachum

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
This past week, as we would walk back to our hotel on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, we were struck by a billboard that featured a gorilla roar juxtaposed (hey-o) with a little girl screaming. It was remarkably striking, and one of the reasons we loved it was that we knew it was the work of fine artist, Roy Nachum, who just wrapped up a solo show in NYC at Joseph Nahmad. What makes it even more remarkable is that the work is layered with Braille.

One Single Thread, One Portrait by Kumi Yamashita

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Sometimes you have to sit and process what you are looking at. This is a portrait made from a wooden panel, nails, and one single piece of thread. That is right; one single piece of thread. The panel is painted white, and then the NYC-based artist wraps the black thread around the nails more and more to create the darker sections. Quite... incredible.

The Malicious Tattoo Work of Tim Kern

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
'Tim Kern is a rotten carny bastard. A seventh-generation twin, he was born in a state of Misery, half-cooked and with a lazy eye. Over the years he has developed a passion for human oddities, prestidigitation, and serial killers. Tim has been a tattoo artist since 1995, and works at Tribulation Tattoo in NYC. If seen, do not approach...'

The Work of David Cook

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 13, 2012
I'm always enthralled and inspired by the intricate pattern work in David Cook's illustrations. The combination of his brightly colored snakes and skulls in fishnets, surrounded by rays of spirographic line-work are drawn with meticulous and repetitive perfection, creating strangely beautiful completed pieces by this New York based, colorblind artist.

Doze Green opened a new solo show, Luminosity in the Dark Rift, at Jonathan LeVine in NYC last month, featuring some of our favorite Doze works to date. Colin Day, who shot a bunch of photos for us last year at Outside Lands in SF, shot a great video of Doze preparing the new works at a studio in San Francisco. A great look at former Juxtapoz cover artist, from February 2008, and his behind-the-scenes preparation.
