Our good friend Nicola Verlato, Italian-born but now based in Los Angeles, is opening a show of what he told us is "smaller paintings" at Merry Karnowsky Gallery on Saturday, February 7. What he says in a modest way we say they're epic. "Conquest of the West" features Verlato's signature style; classical drama, modern fairytales, ancient strives. And it looks like he has a sculpture in this new show...

This Saturday, April 12th Hearsay: Artists Reveal Urban Legends opens at CSU Fullerton's Begovitch Gallery. The exhibition will include approximately 35 artists who will each create artwork based on an urban legend with special significance to them. Each work will be accompanied by text explaining the artist’s personal connection to their chosen urban legend. Urban legends serve as our modern day mythology. Based on cultural traditions and morality tales, these stories prey upon our collective fears...

Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present Pagan Pop, a new exhibition by Juxtapoz featured artist Nicola Verlato. His latest exhibition is a touching revival of late medieval narrative painting and an homage to the lasting vitality of pagan elements that have survived not only the advent of monotheistic religions but also modernity.

This past December 2012, we featured the works of Nicola Verlato in our print magazine. Because he was so articulate and detailed in his expression, we asked him to interview fellow Italian artist Fulvio di Piazza for our April 2013 issue. Because he was so good at that, when Verlato sent us a video of his process for creating the magnificent painting, Burzum, we want to show people how a painter really gets down.

The end of year brings us to our closing issue of 2012, and who better than London-based Conor Harrington to grace the cover for a second time (scoring at home, October 2008 was his first cover). We lean heavily on painters and fine artists this issue with pieces on Nicola Verlato, Futura, Julie Heffernan, Marco Mazzoni, Grady Gordon, and Gregory Euclide, plus conversations with Jen Stark, Bob Dob, and a photo essay from the heart of Johannesburg.
