"Touching Base," New Paintings by Schuyler Beecroft

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 02, 2014
We are really into this new series of paintings, "Touching Base" by San Francisco-based artist Schuyler Beecroft. "Human life is the single most impacting life form on Earth," says Schuyler. "We create, we destroy, and we evolve, all while our population grows each day. My art is created in response to my surroundings and my culture, focusing on the human figure... 

Paintings by Kevin Taylor

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 02, 2014
"I met Kevin at a skate ramp in the summer of 1985. I think he was 12. He was really small, but already very good on a skateboard. I noticed right away he was talented, but even more, so focused and determined, driven to progress. Every time I skated with Kevin he had natural talent, style, courage, and creativity...

The Work of Lena Revenko

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 02, 2014
I don't know what influenced me more, Russian miniatures, Soviet children's books, Hebrew manuscripts, Indian paintings, or Japanese prints. They all created a crazy image library in my head. Since I like to draw on old books, memos, and letters, people often ask me if there is a connection between my drawings and the meaning of the texts...

Paintings by Ryan McLennan

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Every animal is at a loss; how is one to known if they are the predator or the prey in the uncertain microcosm presented? In this bizarre world the trees bare few leaves and seem of little importance to anyone besides the occasional moose cleaning the skin from its new antlers. Humans may have inhabited this place at some point, but not anymore...

"Between Red," Paintings by Sea Huyn Lee

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 31, 2014
These jagged, detailed oil paintings by South Korean-born artist Sea Hyun Lee represent the mountains of North and South Korea. They are a reference to Lee's sense of the past and it's losses but also seem to hint at the painfully fragmented relationships between the two countries.

Drawings and Paintings by Lily Mae Martin

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 31, 2014
'As an artist my main point of interest is people. i draw most of my influences from random happenings and experiences I have had with people around me. My work is often described as grotesque, dark, or aggressive, which isn't what I intended but I find it interesting that people have that reaction. My drawing style stems form my interest in anatomy...'

The Work of Bas Louter

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 31, 2014
Bas Louter is one of the few artists who deal almost entirely with the medium of drawing. In his mainly large-format works he combines figurative images with abstract patterns and structures. The film metropolis Los Angeles, the artist’s place of residence for the last six years, serves as a source of inspiration...

Paintings by Njideka Akunyili

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 27, 2014
We are enjoying the work of Nigerian-born artist Njideka Akunyili this morning. Using acrylic, collage, charcoal, colored pencil, and even Xerox transfer, Njideka creates wonderfully colored and patterned paintings.

Paintings by Ricky Allman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
The last time we featured the work of Ricky Allman, oil was spewing from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. We thought he seemed pretty confident despite the omnipresent gloom. We're not sure if the gloom is any less omnipresent these days but we thought we would re-visit the Kansas City-based artist's work. Allman grew up as a Mormon in Utah prepping for Doomsday. When he was 25 and moved to Boston "suddenly the mountains were replaced with skyscrapers and my surroundings felt much more threatening. The architecture felt like it could come crashing down on me any moment."

Illustrations by Sam Chivers

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
This morning we take a look at the Brighton-based artist and illustrator Sam Chivers. Sam is drawn towards a sort of unconscious surrealism, fusing graphical and figurative elements. Often depicting science fiction, cosmical and fantastical-themed scenes, Chivers mostly works with screen-printing collage, but also occasionally paints.
