Jim Carrey Spray God

Street Art // Wednesday, September 07, 2011
Village home over Labor Day weekend.  Maybe Jim should have consulted someone on his color choices?  Although, we like the go for it attitude with no gloves and no mask!

King Brown Magazine #7

Street Art // Friday, August 26, 2011
We recently received the newest issue of King Brown Magazine in the mail and were quite impressed by the overall quality of this publication.  Based in Australia, this 104-page magazine contains no ads and is thoughtfully curated, showcasing contemporary artists from around the world...  

The Art of Mazzarella Thomas

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 23, 2011
Mazzarella Thomas' work reminds us a bit of Chris Johanson, with its own twist. Thomas' paintings use a very voyeuristic perspective in which we seem to be peeking into the lives of his little characters. We observe business proceedings, artists tediously ruminating over paintings, odd urban landscapes, bedroom push-ups . . .

The Art of Wayne White

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 20, 2011
Wayne White takes thrift store paintings, initially bad art, and recreates these kitsch items by implementing ironic text that seamlessly become part of the initial canvas, weaving in and out of the cliché landscapes that we are all used to seeing in our dentists' offices.

MTN Announces New Tempera Paint

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 17, 2011
A lot of our readers are artists themselves, no question, so this is good news for them: MTN Colors, makers of great spraypaints, have just released their new tempera paint, 12 colors that coincide with the MTN Markers line “MARCADOR”. Perfect density to use directly with paint brushes, airbrushes, and to fill markers or squeezers.

Paintings by Charlie Roberts

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 15, 2011
Charlie Roberts' paintings collect imagery from modern day iconography, celebrity culture, consumer culture, personal observation, rap music, and things he's "impressed by." Roberts makes assemblages from  many different pools of imagery and mashes it together creating his own world.

The Work of Jon Pylypchuck

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 10, 2011
Jon Pylypchuck's work is inspired by various stimuli including creepy men making out with their girlfriends in public, fear of his parents dying, family ghosts, personal struggles, and many other things.

New Works by Amy Casey

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 29, 2011
We showcased Amy Casey's work in the magazine a few months back, and we have heard a lot of positive feedback from her newest body of work. The artist currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio, and builds highly detailed, reimaginations of the urban landscape.

The Work of Charming Baker

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 23, 2011
UK-based painter, Charming Baker, has been creating impressive oil on wood pieces that we have been hearing a lot of buzz about. His influences include "Cheap books, heroes, girls, Zulus, odd-looking women, suburbia, da riddum, family, stories, horses, dogs, packaging, summer holidays, the smell of make-up and cheap perfume, powertools, tea, tomatoes, Britain in Colour."

Flights of Genius by Stephen Powers Video

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 15, 2011
That could mean ESPO to you and some. Stephen Powers was commissioned by Ogilvy & Mather New York and Joshua Liner Gallery to create murals that reinterpret the words and quotes of agency founder David Ogilvy. This video sort of sums up what Powers is all about, his reasons, body of work, and his love of sign-painting.
