New Works from Smithe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
As you can probably tell, we have a mini-obsession with Mexico City-based Smithe these days. A mixture of nostalgic, vintage illustrative style and a bit of the grotesque and absurd make for a beautiful combination, and Smithe is one of the best at the moment. Here is a look at some new music posters and graphic illustrations the artist has completed recently.

Illustrations by Rich Kelly

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
There is a little bit of everything in the works of Rich Kelly. You have music posters, movie posters, television program illustrations, and straight gallery works all from one hand (or two hands). Kelly has made work for Bonnie Prince Billy, Breaking Bad, Planet of the Apes, R Kelly, The Tallest Man on Earth, and other musicians and entertainers. He is trying not to break things.

The Wes Anderson Alphabet

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 06, 2012
Why not? We have been in a Wes Anderson mood with the "Bad Dads" show at Spoke Art, so might as well move onto the Wes Anderson Alphabet as produced by Madrid, Spain-based Hexagonall. We don't get all 26, but 18 posters representing the film canon that is Wes Anderson will suffice on this election day.

The Political Works of Dignidad Rebelde

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 17, 2012
In his interview in the November 2012 Political Art issue of Juxtapoz, Ernesto Yerena Montejano introduced us to the work of two important political artists in the Bay Area. Ernesto tells us, "It is impossible to talk about contemporary political art without mentioning the talented and artistically prolific duo/couple by the name of Dignidad Rebelde."

Swedish Posters for 1930s Hollywood Films

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 09, 2012
This sounds a little vague, but we have definitely been excited by classic, handpainted movie posters on the site over the past week (see our Top 25 list here). Today, we came across a great list compiled by 50Watts of these great Swedish posters from the 1930s that were made in conjunction with the great Hollywood films of the day. 

Shepard Fairey Sentenced For "Hope" Case

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 09, 2012
In 2008, Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” poster for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign became a symbol of inspiration and optimism. Yesterday, four years later in New York, Fairey received a sentence of two years probation and a $25,000 fine in federal court for his the same poster.

Political Poster Art by Lester Beall

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 07, 2012
"In th 1930s, much of rural America lacked electricity, power, and running water. The Rural Electrification Administration hired graphic designer Lester Beall to create a series of posters illustrating the benefits of electrification." These posters, and a collection of other works, show the influence of one of America's great graphic designers, Lester Beall (1903-1969).

Dave Kinsey For Obama 2012

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 06, 2012
In the 2008 Presidential Elections we saw how artists can have major impacts on the campaign trail to the White House. Dave Kinsey recently released a new image called UNITED in an effort to support President Obama's reelection campaign. Kinsey explains "I feel this is one of the most important votes U.S. citizens will ever make, ultimately affecting everything from our environment and social structure to worldwide issues (to name a few things)."

Poster Design by Christopher Gray

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 22, 2012
Christopher Gray's poster design is a beautiful dose of bold, graphic color blocks, simplifying representations to minimal abstract elements that make eye-popping posters that are not easily forgotten.
