Judith Charles Gallery is delighted to present a solo exhibition of San Diego based artist, and past Juxtapoz featured artist, Kelsey Brookes. The exhibition, Better Living Through Chemistry, is Brookes' first solo show in New York and consists of entirely new work. From his background in molecular biology, Brookes has taken his knowledge of scientific images and expanded them into extremely intricate paintings that explore the mutability of human consciousness.

Boards of Canada's newest LP, Tomorrow's Harvest, is one of our favorite albums of the year. If you are making a holiday wishlist, put this one on it. Neil Krug, who we have featured in the magazine in the past, shot the single artwork and video for the track, "Reach for the Dead," and if you feel like having a desert trip today, this is your chance.

Reigning from the equally bizarre entity that is Portland, Joseph Harmon is an artist and illustrator with an affinity for seizure-inducing narratives and compositions. His work depicts an array of strangely rendered characters in a palette of juicy pop colors and hues. Get weird with Joseph's work for awhile... you won't regret it.

One of the great Japanese pop and psychedelic artists of the postwar era, we love the mind of Keiichi Tanaami. The artist has worked in graphic design, fine art, poster art, and video, but it is these paintings that have us excited to share with you this morning.

This morning we take a look at some of our favorite covers from "Groove Is In the Art," an archive celebrating "an era when psychadelic graphics and pop art met the mainstream on instrumental and classical album covers in an explosion of line art and color."

If you are excited about summer, surf culture, rock and roll, and everything in between, then we have a book in mind for you. John Van Hamersveld (who we interviewed not too long ago) has just released his book Fifty Years of Graphic Design.This retrospective look at his practice as an iconic and prolific producer of graphic images rooted in all aspects of the West Coast counter culture provides insight and background to the stories behind each image and the various developments throughout his career.

San Francisco-based graphic artist Scott Hansen goes by the name ISO50 when he works on his photography and design works. And much of it has the look of this video. When he does said video as a musician, he is Tycho, the music producer who makes what we would call "summertime ambiance." This is the video for his new track, "Ascension," directed by Charles Bergquist. Enjoy the psychedelic flourishes.

What a way to wake up on this sunny Northern California morning... nothing says sunshine like some Hamburg, Germany-born psychedelia by Mati Klarwein. From his site, it mentions: "was born in Hamburg on the 9th of April 1932, to a Jewish architect father from Polish origins, and a German opera singer mother." The art genes worked out. More on his site.

We have been in a bit of a psychedelic mood on the site in recent days, and when we came across the work of Polish-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Maciek Jasik this morning, we knew we found something that definitely hit us right in the heart. Beautiful portrait compositions, with a sense of mystery behind a rainbow haze.
