The Work of Ruth Marten

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
We've posted the work of New York-based artist Ruth Marten before, the dubious accuracy of her drawings on antique etchings always impresses us. Taking these etchings, often of scientific subjects, Marten transforms the imagery into something fantastic and often perverse! 

Paintings by Tom Sanford

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 06, 2013
We love these paintings by New York-based artist Tom Sanford. Inspired by the colorful and eccentric residents of the great city, Staford's characters range from famed rappers to Spike Lee, Steve Powers, and Mayor Bloomberg. "But I need New York City. I feed of the culture. All the amazing people who inhabit this magical place, doing fantastic things. They create an energy, or perhaps an anxiety, that nourishes me and I must be close to the source." Amen, brother.

JA hearts New York

Graffiti // Monday, August 19, 2013
Appropriately JA loves New York and that makes perfect sense since most writers around the globe would associate the bomber specifically with that city.

Narrative Portraits of NYC Subway Riders by Chris Russell

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 31, 2013
We used to spend a fair amount of time riding and commuting on the New York City subway and the routine can become pretty mundane. The cold or incredibly humid concrete city gets to people and the subway isn't usually where they are finding their joy. It is also a place where diversity and all the colorful characters of the fantastic city meet in a single confined space and we're pretty sure there is no better place to people watch. Chris Russell, over the course of 4 years, in 8 pocket-sized accordion books, has spent his commute drawing his fellow subway riders in an arrangement reminiscent of traditional Chinese landscape paintings!

Axel: Bloody Genius @ Art on A Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
If the moniker Bloody Genius conjures up a proper monocoled British gent, think again, and do hurry over to Art on A Gallery to see for yourself. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, consider that Axel employs his own blood (in just the right consistency) as the medium for mesmerizing intricate paintings framed in flaming gold leaf. Protégé of Salvador Dali and jeweler to Axl Rose, this Axl has authentic Papal robes in his closet and cites Lady GaGa for saving his life. Get over to 24 “A” Avenue at Second  in NYC for a little nibble of this poison apple before it closes on July 26th..

Three Decades of "Jones Beach" by Joseph Szabo

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 05, 2013
We are about two weeks into Summer and were lucky enough to catch some of that beautiful California sunshine on the beach this fourth of July. Joseph Szabo, a teacher and photographer from Long Island spent almost three decades ('72-'99) photographing one of the busiest beaches in the world in this wonderful series "Jones Beach."

Installations by Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 01, 2013
Using wood and paper, Brooklyn-based long time collaborators Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen create large-scale installations that often resemble trees and forests, filling entire rooms with the twisted and crushed materials. 

Firework Drawings by Rosemarie Fiore

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 01, 2013
Bronx-based Rosemarie Fiore uses everything from lawn mowers, cars, waffle irons, floor polishers, pinball machines, and yes, fireworks to create her colorful works of art. Her "Pyrotechnics" series was created by exploding fireworks (under cardboard cylinders and metal cans) over paper!

Bela Borsodi's Everyday Object Alphabet

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
We spend a lot of time looking at all things art and it never ceases to amaze us how creative people are. We love this alphabet series constructed with everyday objects by Vienna-born, New York-based photogrpaher Bela Borsodi.

video: Pal in NYC

Graffiti // Thursday, June 27, 2013
Will Robson-Scott’s newest video shot with what appears to be the archaic format of HI-8, follows Parisian graffiti crew, PAL, around during their time spent in New York. Deviating from you typical graffiti video, Scott’s approach is refreshing as he includes the diverse characters and the various rugged landscapes that makes New York the vibrant city that it is. Set to a tranquil soundtrack, take 5 minutes out of your day and check it out.
