"MOLLY’S NOT A HIPSTER": MIGUEL PAREDES & KYLE WILLIAM HARPER @ Known Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
New York native and Miami resident Miguel Paredes is a prolific visual artist who continues to create amazing work inspired by his urban experience, whether it’s in New York City, South Beach, or Los Angeles. Miguel grew up with pop art - anime, Batman & Robin, and Warhol - and began painting trains in the late 1970s during the peak of New York City’s graf- fiti explosion.

Nacho Guzmán for Opale's "Sparkles and Wine"

Music // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Remember when we just had movie previews at the theater and music videos on MTV? Now we got Daft Punk buying ad space on SNL to tease the costumes they are going to wear in support of their new album, and album teasers that are more creative than half the music industry. Nacho Guzman has created this fantastic teaser for French band Opale, and their new LP, Sparkles and Wine. The effect of the lighting shows you how much a face can change with shadows, color, and some good ol' LED lights.
