Paintings by Phil Hale

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 15, 2014
London-based painter Phil Hale's "current work focuses on figure as well, in depictions of slightly surreal scenes with strange characters performing various physical feats, usually in a confrontation of some sort. He seems to take keen interest in tension and emphasis of angular and dynamic aspects of the figure, almost always incorporating slight anatomical distortions to great effect."

Imploding Faces and Exploding Deer

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 14, 2014
Merve Morkoç’s paintings are inspired by the culture and life of the streets, where she feels independent. For her, the internet, streets, gallery walls, paper and materials of any size can easily turn into efficient spaces. In this context, the artist is enthused by animation figures, commercials and narrative styles of urban origin that surround her.

Exceptional body painting by China-born, Tokyo-based artist who goes under the moniker of Pinpin Co. We don't often post or see a lot of body painting and art that we love, but this is some of the most innovative, stunning, and original work we have seen in quite some time. 

In the Magazine: Brecht Vandenbroucke

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 12, 2014
One wouldn't be out of line to presume that Vandenbroucke spends a fair amount of time on the Internet. Or perhaps he really spends a very normal amount of time online and just documents and processes that experience in his artwork in a memorable way. The graphics, icons and even the frames through which we experience the digital world—and how that changes our experience of regular flesh and blood life—all leap out with dramatic dimension in Vandenbroucke’s distinctive line and color.

In the Magazine: Jenny Morgan

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 08, 2014
Adding something fresh and necessary to the genre of portraiture may seem impossible, but in that realm, Jenny Morgan is crushing it. Don’t label her paintings figurative or photoreal. Her extraordinary skills for rendering the human figure are beside the point. Layers of the unconscious are revealed in the reductive abstraction of her portraits...

Paintings by Zhao Jinhe

"Nudes" by Victoria Selbach

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 31, 2014
This morning we take a look Victoria Selbach's nudes. Victoria uses light and shadow to as an underlying abstraction to what the mind is tuned to see: the woman and human form.
