Brian Donnelly's Dog-Faced Erotica

Erotica // Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Brian Donnelly's work acts to settle his own selfish whims, while exploring art and art culture through representational painting. Inspired by books like "The island of Dr. Moreau" and "Frankenstein", his aim is not to recreate works based on fiction, but to create his own vision of cruelty. He models himself after the hap-hazard doctors of fiction, substituting his scientific practice for his artistic practice, and in doing so, he has become a fierce and unforgiving...

Pardee's Pick: The Art of Steven Daily

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012

Paintings by Aaron Nagel

Erotica // Tuesday, October 02, 2012
Its difficult not to fall in absolute adoration when it comes to the paintings of San Francisco based Aaron Nagel.

Pardee's Pick: The Art of Shawn Pacheco

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 30, 2012
Whenever I rant to people who haven't seen his art, the way I always describe the work of Bay Area illustrator Shawn G. Pacheco (SGP) tends to go something like this: "Imagine if a real cartoon character, like Bugs Bunny, Stimpy, or Finn were inspired by OTHER cartoons and spent their free time drawing fucked up NEW cartoons."

Paintings by Kim Westfall

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 17, 2012
Paintings can be great when they consist of impeccable renderings that transcend the medium, but at other times, the best paintings are those that emphasize the materiality of the medium and the immediacy of each mark made on the canvas. Kim Westfall's paintings fall under the latter category.
