The Paintings of Pablo Cristi

Graffiti // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Los Angeles born, Oakland-based artist, Pablo Cristi, creates vibrant paintings and sculptures relating to pop culture, graffiti, religion, history, gangs, and “Bling culture,” are favorite topic of all. As his website states, “ Cristi’s work is motivated by an active political awareness and is steeped in a critical inquiry of power, representation and history.” “ His investigations of the colonial past, present, and future often take the form of paintings and sculptural objects that deconstruct and commingle urban visual vernaculars.”

Paintings by Deenesh Ghyczy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 11, 2012
"Deenesh Ghyczy leads us into a world where habitual principals of thought and argument become meaningless. His figures stand beyond the cause-and-effect of everyday life; some are shown levitating, others in a state of complete inwardness. Streams of consciousness appear to be channeled and frozen in the recurrent motif of fragmented, disintegrating figures..."

The Work of Andrew Pommier

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 29, 2012
We had a great stop by in the office this week; Vancouver-based fine artist Andrew Pommier was in town finishing a mural at Juice's office, and he stopped by to see us at Juxtapoz and Thrasher.

Jen Mann's Chromatic Atrophy

Erotica // Thursday, June 28, 2012
"This new series of works explores color and texture, and the deterioration or disintegration of images into an abyss. Working in layers and exhibiting much more freedom in her brushstrokes, these emotional and spontaneous paintings are a great departure from Jen Mann's past works." In her past series entitled "Subconscious Vista" Jen explores themes of nature, spiritualism, fantasy and discovery....

The Flatiron Mural in Toronto

Street Art // Monday, June 18, 2012
Located in downtown Toronto, the Flatiron building built in 1891 by architect David Roberts was the first flatiron preceding the famed New York building.  In 1998, Canadian artist, Derek Besant painted a mural that mirrors the building directly across from it.  The mural consists of over 50 panels attached to a steel frame mounted on the wall and gives off the effect that the painting is fluttering in the wind, being held up by screws.

Light Paintings by Simon Berger

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 08, 2012
In order to fully understand what light painting is, because, I don't know, I think it needed a definition, I went to Wikipedia and found this: "Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera." Knowing this, Simon Berger has created a fantastic series of light paintings made to appear as if light was raining on the figure in the photos.
