Paintings by China Mike (aka Mike Carr)

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 12, 2013
  We have posted the work of the very talented Bristol-based Illustrator and Painter China Mike before. These days he is feeling less pressure to create realistically defined images, instead wanting there to be a playfulness in his work and to not get bogged down with mechanical routines.

Paintings by David Marc Grant

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
This morning we take a look at the paintings of San Francisco-based artist David Marc Grant. David is interested in the process and problem of solving formal painting issues as well as geo-political issues. For this reason, he asks the viewer to fall in love with the consumption of brightly colored consumer objects (his paintings), "while simultaneously suggesting the dangerous consequences implicit in the act."

Spatial Paintings by Xia Xiawan

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 10, 2013
Chinese artist Xia Xiaowan's 3D painting works on panes of glass are called "spatial paintings," and often feature distorted figures, drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when the multiple pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the hologram-like effect.

The Work of Gerhard Mayer

Nuremberg-based artist Gerhard Mayer creates large-scale paintings, collages, drawings, sculptures, and wallpieces. His wallpieces are creating using China ink and his own unique mathematical rules. Having been interested in elementary particles and physics for a long time, his work is made following strict regularities. 

Paintings on Photographs by Charlotte Caron

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 03, 2013
We are enjoying the paintings of French artist Charlotte Caron this morning. She took a very simple idea, with a nice effect, involving the humanization of animals, and animalizing humans. The artist says of the series, "This series of paintings, photographs, are trying to respond to a form of duality... ultimately creating an osmosis between the two mediums, between the animal and the portrait."

The Work of Fred Tomaselli

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 31, 2013
The SFMOMA is temporarily closing its doors in a couple of days for the construction of their new expansion. We took a last walk through yesterday evening as they count down the days and while doing so happened upon a painting by Fred Tomaselli, something we seemed to have missed the last time we were there. So, inspired, this morning we thought we would bring you a collection of the Brooklyn-based artist's work.

Simon Casson's Collage-like Paintings

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 29, 2013
We are diggin the paintings of British artist Simon Casson this morning. His casual, yet formal style incorporates a randomness that somehow all comes together to form a pretty amazing overall piece.

Paintings by Glenn Brown

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 29, 2013
We have posted the paintings of the very talented Glenn Brown before. Looking to the neo-classical and Renaissance masters for inspiration, Glenn's broad paint strokes are incredibly intricate and the paintings are often surreal and nightmare-like.
