Drawings and Paintings by Lily Mae Martin

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 31, 2014
'As an artist my main point of interest is people. i draw most of my influences from random happenings and experiences I have had with people around me. My work is often described as grotesque, dark, or aggressive, which isn't what I intended but I find it interesting that people have that reaction. My drawing style stems form my interest in anatomy...'

When he was 25 and moved to Boston "suddenly the mountains were replaced with skyscrapers and my surroundings felt much more threatening. The architecture felt like it could come crashing down on me any moment."

Illustrations by Sam Chivers

This morning we take a look at the Brighton-based artist and illustrator Sam Chivers. Sam is drawn towards a sort of unconscious surrealism, fusing graphical and figurative elements. Often depicting science fiction, cosmical and fantastical-themed scenes, Chivers mostly works with screen-printing collage, but also occasionally paints.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Julie Mehretu's large-scale, mixed media paintings create a dizzying field of layered landscapes to construct colorful and complex abstractions and lines. Drawing from historical and fictional references to architecture, urban planning, societal structures of power, and personal narrative,
