Paintings by El Grio

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
This flat and graphic painting style with its emphasis on the flattened perspective and geometric forms creating vibration between the hues is pleasing in its wonkiness. El Grio paints objects that are familiar, yet with an approach that reformats the colors and shapes into an abstraction that is more lively than the initial thing itself . . .

Erotica // Thursday, May 10, 2012
Natalia Fabia is of Polish descent and was raised in Southern California where she graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.

Oil Paintings by Becca Mann

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
On our Monday morning cruise around, we got sucked into the oil painting world of Venice, California based Becca Mann. A mixture of Southern California, a bit of early California and Southwestern style shows up in her paintings, and a few nice ocean/surf scenes in her graphite works are all very well executed. A good start to the week.

Paintings by Jeffrey Beauchamp

Erotica // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
'As kids we are generally encouraged to use and cultivate our imaginations, though once we reach adulthood the pressures of everyday existence tend to hone our more practical survival skills and leave our younger minds to fend for themselves. As an artist I can postpone certain aspects of growing up in the name of staying creative: while painting, for instance, I find a sort of disciplined daydreaming works quite well...'

"Dream State" Works by Andy Denzler

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 15, 2012
Andy Denzler, if he was attempting to create a series that matched the feeling of an improbable dream, then he was very successful. These paitings appear to be blips in the imagination, static on a television screen, blurred visions of ones past, all done with oils on canvas. Denzler says that he tries evoking a narrative through composition, light, and motion.

Wode Paint Perfume

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 15, 2012
London's Boudicca is targeting ladies of spray can art everywhere, with their imaginatively conceived Wode perfume, a spicy amber scent packaged in a spray paint can—that goes on blue but disappears within seconds leaving behind only the sultry bouquet.
