The Work of Meguru Yamaguchi

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
Raised in Tokyo, Japan by fashion designer parents and at the epicenter of the city's street culture, Meguru Yamaguchi was introduced by his parents to a good amount of pop art while also immersed in Japanese Manga. He is a "Digital Impressionist," using portraits of his friends on social media as inspiration, the artist samples elements of painting, collage, acrylics, and spray paint to create colorful and dynamic works "reminiscent of Hip-Hop samplings from the 70s."

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
We are really enjoying the work of South Korean artist Hyon Gyon Park this morning. Park had her first solo exhibition in the US at Shin Gallery in NYC this spring. We were lucky enough to catch some of her large-scale work in person at ArtMRKT in San Francisco this year and it is truly spectacular. 

Paintings by Eric Zener

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 19, 2013
This morning we take a look at the photoreal paintings of Eric Zener. The self taught northern California-based artist's water and underwater paintings begin with a photo transfer from which he then builds the mixed media work in layers, using various processes to create the depth and buoyancy.

Nakamura Hiroshi's 1950s Protest Art

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Born in 1932, Nakamura Hiroshi was trained by the Japan Art Alliance as a reportage painter. The Alliance was 'a postwar art group that advocated politically-themed realist painting.' By the 50s, Hiroshi was very involved in depicting protests against the rise of U.S. military bases. He saw himself as a 'reporter at the frontlines' of confrontations, brandishing sketchbook and pencil as opposed to a camera.

Paintings by China Mike (aka Mike Carr)

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 12, 2013
