New Work by Alex Pardee

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 14, 2008
Artistic talent Alex Pardee shot us a preview of his most recent work with Swedish heavy-metal giants In Flames. Pardee has been working with the group for the past couple of months on their new album, A Sense of Purpose. Not only did Pardee do the album cover artwork, which was revealed today (shown), but he also created a 20 page fully illustrated booklet to compliment the album! "I chose to combine watercolor, guache, pen and ink, and digital illustration to create all of the artwork because In Flames had an extremely specific vision for the look of this album, and because they stressed how unique they wanted it, there was nothing to really compare it to or to draw from as inspiration, so I knew there was going to be some changes during the creative process because I wanted to make sure that their vision was translated perfectly. And with utilizing digital art in conjunction with traditional art, it allows me to change, push, pull, and in a way, sculpt the artwork until it fits their vision, without having to re create an entire painting from scratch with each change. Approaching this project was very intimidating because I had a lot to live up to, as they are metal veterans and this is their 9th or 10th full album, plus their last album was designed and illustrated by one of my major influences, Derek Hess!" The album will be released in April. See more of Alex Pardee’s illustrative genius on his website.

Bwana Spoons at Giant Robot NY

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 10, 2008
Giant Robot is proud to present How to Dig a Hole, Bwana Spoons’ first solo show in New York, opening Saturday, January 12th. Spoons is a Portland-based artist whose freewheeling style developed under the influence of underground comics, '60s rock posters, and Japanese rubber monster movies. Starting out with stapled-and-folded zines like My Friend the Micronaut and Ain't Nothing Like Fucking Moonshine in the early '90s, Spoons has become a regular in the Northwest street art and indie music scene. Endangered animals caught in mid-thought, kung fu wizards with gravity-defying eyebrows, and swirling psychedelic backgrounds are only some of the elements found in the well-composed anarchy of his paintings and sculpture. He is also involved in the Grass Hut art collective and gallery. Although the show is called How to Dig a Hole, the new paintings, illustrations, and sculptures by Spoons actually address how to get out of one. “What do I fill it with?” he asks. “Blood, guts, tears, dirt, love, and paint.” See more of what Spoons has to offer here.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 27, 2007
Corey Helford Gallery presents Sugar & Silence, an exhibition of new works by Los Angeles-based artist Brandi Milne. Sugar & Silence marks the first solo show of Milne's career, and for the exhibition, the artist explores her personal childhood fascination with sweets, transforming the gallery into a playful candyland. The carefree feel of giant sugar-coated treats, strawberries, cherries and snow cones juxtapose with longing figures of graceful, delicate nymphs. For Milne, Sugar & Silence is a turning point as she makes the transition from illustrations to paintings. The exhibition features 35 new works including acrylic on wood panel paintings, watercolor and ink illustrations, and a collection of hand-sewn dolls. More...

David Stoupakis Site Update

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 14, 2007
David Stoupakis has recently updated his site with images of the paintings from his most recent show, A Quest For Better Dreams, which took place at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin this past September. All pieces in the show were created from notes and documents about the nightmares of a girl named Emily Backman at Rosewood Hospital in Massachusetts. The works are all in Stoupakis' traditional style except that they're black and white, and the subjects are a little stranger than usual (if you can believe that). The black and white may be due to the fact that most people's dreams are not in color, and the strange is probably just because dreams are always strange. We had one once from the perspective of a pickle at a cocktail party. See more of the beautifully rendered oddities from Emily's dreams at

Photos: Ron English at Opera Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2007
Last Thursday's bitter cold didn't stop the masses from attending Ron English's latest solo show, Big Picture Pop, at the Opera Gallery in New York City on November 29th. Fans and collectors mingled and marveled at the new works, which were nothing short of stunning. The show's centerpiece was the incredible "Grade School Guernica," which measured an impressive 27 x 11 feet (a foot taller and wider than Picasso's original "Guernica"). For those who missed the opening night, you can visit the gallery before the show closes on Decemeber 29th or the paintings can be viewed at Ron's website, More...
