When you open up our next issue, which by your calendar would be the November issue, you will see a little feature on the artist Paul Wackers. We like Paul's work a ton. It's a beautiful example of taking an old art form, the still life, and given it a wonderful contemporary look. When we see his work, we feel like we are literally, okay, maybe figuratively, stepping into the artist's studio as they are working out the process. Paul's new show, "New Alphabet," runs from September 17—October 24, 2015 at Alice Gallery in Brussels.

One of our favorite artists of the moment is Paul Wackers, and we have covered the Brooklyn-based artist a lot on our stie and visited his studio for a print piece a few months back. We are excited to see his newest show, "Thank You For Being You" at Morgan Lehman Gallery in NYC on June 18, 2015, which from the looks of it, will feature new paintings and new ceramic works.

In late 2014, there was a Duck show curated by the great Chircago artist Ryan Travis Christian. Now, that Duck show has evolved into DUCKS! and is opening tonight (March 27) at our friend Louis Schmidt's new LA space, Minotaur Projects. There will be ducks painted by Jason Jagel, Richard Colman, Nat Russell, Mel Kadel, Paul Wackers, Ryan Travis Christian, Brian Willmont, Allison Schulnik, and so many more we can't even name them.
Studio Time // Wednesday, March 04, 2015
This is my studio in what is now called East Williamsburg, where I have been for about two and a half years. I really like the studio, and before this spot, I was in a space shared with about five other people. It was always hard to tell that so many people were in there since we were so crammed in, and I had no windows in and around my 10’ x 10’ nook...

The Posters is a website that offers excellent art posters for an affordable price, with a portion of the proceeds going to art education programs for youth, such as Inner-City Arts in Los Angeles. Each poster is available for a limited time, and you can currently get your hands on works by Paul Wackers, Owen Schmit, Nate Lowman and Wyatt Kahn for a few more weeks. Get art and support art programs for kids. It’s a win-win.

We stopped by Miami Project last night for their opening, and ran into a bunch of old friends along the way. Most importantly, we saw some great works in the Joshua Liner booth with Geoff McFetridge, Andrew Schoultz, Sam Friedman and Evan Hecox, Eleanor Harwood's booth with Paul Wackers, Driscoll Babcock's booth with Jenny Morgan, and some great new works from Greg "SP.One" Lamarche.

Juxtapoz is proud to both kick off the 2015 year with a cover story on Brooklyn-based fine artist Dan Witz in our print edition. But we are even more proud that it will be released at our booth at Scope Art Fair Miami Beach and on shelves around the world during the holiday shopping rush. Witz is overdue for the cover, with his mosh pit paintings and unique street art being enjoyed by collectors and readers for over two decades.

Paul Wackers opens a new show at Eleanor Harwood this weekend and it looks very solid, with a cohesive collection of new paintings that continue his investigation of everyday objects.

This past week in NYC, we saw a ton of art that we liked, but one of the standouts from the fair circuit was Paul Wackers at the Morgan Lehman Gallery booth from the Volta Fair. We have been following Wackers work for years, and have loved his paintings, but it was his ceramic works that really caught our attention.
