We wanted to share the latest mural by JR, part of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program’s Open Source project, which is a series of installations in public space which call attention to various social issues. This mural, called Migrants, Ibrahim, Mingora – Philadelphia, is an exploration of immigration. Ibrahim Shaw, the subject of the work, grew up and studied at a university in Pakistan, then came to Philadelphia to work in his uncle’s food truck.

This Friday, July 24th Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia will be presenting Ingress/Egress, an exhibition by Hannah Stouffer and Hilary White. Ingress/Egres slightly balances its journey in a space created of compressed experiences, a meditative dialogue of depth and transcendence.

"Confetti Crackle Pop," works by Kelly Kozma now on display at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, features an array of mixed media techniques, including hand embroidery, painting, and collage, creating a body of work that shows the growth and transition that occurs in the passing of time. With every individual stitch made, knot tied or circle punched, a new notch is added to my timeline. Because of the meticulous nature and time consuming aspect involved in developing each piece, it feels as though time is physically being marked

Nicomi Nix Turner is an artist we have had our eye on for a bit now, and we are happy to see her new body of work, "No God for a Wanderer" at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia on April 24—June 6, 2015. As we just learned, Turner was raised in the Pacific Northwest (Southern Oregon to be exact), and her illustrations that connect both nature and human reflect this "understanding of the perfection in nature."

Like a good book, landscape invites willing viewers to immerse themselves in a new world and explore. They invite interactions between people and places, changing perspectives – sparking connections. We challenge our audience to dive into the art and explore this exhibition of four artists all approaching landscapes outside of the conventional categories of the picturesque...

Art in the Age presents The Distance Between Two Points, a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Scott Albrecht. The exhibition will run from October 3—31, 2014 with an opening reception on Friday, October 3rd, from 6—8pm. In The Distance Between Two Points, Albrecht explores themes of time, perception and interconnectivity. The artist took a holistic approach toward this exhibition, inspired by the concept that consciousness is informed by multiple factors, shaped by personal histories and past experiences. His goal was to create a body of work with layers of meaning, each piece functions individually yet many convey a larger message collectively, in relation to the others.

In the early 1990s, photographer Vincent D. Feldman turned his camera on Philadelphia’s many abandoned and neglected buildings and parks. Some of his subjects have succumbed to neglect or demolition, some have been successfully rehabilitated, others remain in limbo in their ruined states, their futures far from secure...

There is so much to show you about Andy Rementer, the cover artist of the brand new April 2014 Juxtapoz. We have loved his work for years, whether seeing it at Pick Me UP in London, or in various commercial avenues such as New York Magazine or the NY Times. His cartoon-insprired works, whether actually in cartoon-format or in fine art form, are colorful, unique characters that bring to mind some of the best in animation and comics. We are so happy to have him in the alumni of Juxtapoz cover artists.

A few months ago, KAWS unveiled a beautiful public Companion (Passing Through) sculpture at Philadelphia's 30th Street Station, all leading up to the Brooklyn artist's exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts that opens tomorrow, October 11. A few images of the PAFA's space have been released, showing a great juxtaposition (hey-o!) of the clean, bright lines of KAWS' canvases with the antique, classic works and structure of the PAFA building. Living Proof has a great preview video ...
