Parra always is one of our favorite artists working today, and we can't wait to see the whole body of new work that will be up at Alice Gallery in Brussels starting on May 28, 2015. The show is called "Salut," and it looks to contain those signature elements that make Parra not only one of Europe's best contemporary artists, but really becoming one of the best all of us art people get to cover.

Case Studyo just announced it’s latest collaboration with Dutch Artist Parra (March, 2008). With his new sculpture ‘Cold’, Parra once again translates his unique curved post-pop imagery into a beautiful porcelain sculpture. This surreal & hybrid character of a female birdlike creature with hands around the legs looking for warmth.

We are huge fans of Parra, and his March 2008 cover ranks as one of our favorites of all time. And, we quite the 3 artworks that the Amsterdam-based artist sent for our 20th Anniversary show, "Art Truancy," at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC this past May/June. The artist is back at HVW8 Gallery in Los Angeles with a new series of works, "Same Old Song," all visual treats that not only reflect the artist's sense of humor, but this roots in poster art where communication is a practice in simplyfying complex ideas.

And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."
