The Art of Buddy Nestor

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 13, 2012
Buddy Nestor was an abstract painter until a few years ago when he struck a strange new chord with portraiture that took his work to a new level. Derivative of his abstract style, Nestor's "spiritual x-ray" portraits are intended to remove the mask of beauty to reveal darker, more honest aspects of the personalities of his subjects.

The Works of Charlie Isoe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
It has been awhile since we check in with Perth, Australia-based, and former April 2010 cover artist, Charlie Isoe, but we were looking at his old cover image in our office yesterday and thought... damn, Charlie is a talented painter. The works always felt full of energy, ideas, command, but also loose and exploratory. Although he hasn't shown in a few years, we expect something interesting whenever Isoe has a new body of work.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Just what we needed this morning, some beautiful, stream of consciousness, dreamy paintings to get us started. We came across the work of Italy's Lorella Paleni a few weeks, and were reminded again this morning, and from what we see of the recent Colombia student, we like where the work is headed.
