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. A master of many mediums, today Miguel brings them all out in one painting, creating very bright, friendly, and in your face artwork that speaks to new and old generations of collectors and art aficionados.

Kicking off the exhibition program at Roq La Rue's new Seattle space in Pioneer Square will be Stacey Rozich's Within Without Me. We have been showing Rozich's work on the site for a few years, but this show is noted for "a jump up from previous shows containing larger, more complex works rendered in her trademark mediums of watercolor and gouache, as well as a deeper, more profound exploration of contemporary global social political themes."

Season 1 Episode 0 is inspired by the reality and unreality of contemporary TV...

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.

Juxtapoz' good friend, Dennis McNett, will be in Copenhagen for a new exhibition at MOHS starting this April 19, 2013. There is a long description about the cryptic nature of the show, that you can read after the jump, but just know this: For the last 6 years the Wolfbat tribe has grown and performed ceremony, sacrifice, and spread the way of the Wolfbat throughout the North American continent. Europe, be ready.

We just got a message from our good friend, and former cover artist, Greg "Craola" Simkins about his new show, Stop Haunting Me, that opens this Saturday, April 6 at Merry Karnowsky in LA. The show will feature a series of new paintings and never-before-seen prints. As Craola told us, " As I painted my pieces for this exhibit, two themes kept reoccurring to me. My twentieth year anniversary of writing graffiti under the name 'Craola"', which I began in 1993, was approaching. It is unbelievable that it is 2013 already. I blinked and 20 years flew by."
