Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 13, 2014
Juxtapoz is going to make a field trip today to a show that we are really exicted about, but seeing that it comes down on Saturday, we think you need to head over as well if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area. Paul Mavrides, a member of the influential Zap Comix! underground comic collective and longtime resident of SF's Mission District, has a show up at Steven Wolf Fine Arts. This is Mavrides' first show in 10 years, and is a collection of found object wood paintings.

Now, for all our friends in Southern California and beyond, you can see a special presentation of Mr Bitchin' at the famed Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on July 30, at 7:30pm. And for all our readers, we have a special offer for you... 

Robert Williams in conversation with Kenny Scharf, July 2013

Vault // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
We are still buzzing from our week at Comic-Con, and one of the reasons is that we were able to witness the brand new sculpture that Robert Williams created with the help of Gentle Giant Studios. For the July 2012 issue, we paired Robert with old friend Kenny Scharf (who also had sculptures made with Gentle Giant for his newest solo at Paul Kasmin in NYC) to discuss not only their respective collabs with GGS, but also their historical perspectives on sculpture and how their sculptures pair up against art history. 

Robert Williams x Gentle Giant x Juxtapoz @ Comic-Con 2013

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 22, 2013
Juxtapoz founder Robert Williams had a major presence all throughout Comic-Con, with a major new sculpture that was unveiled (made in collaboration with Gentle Giant Studios) that dominated the entrance into Hall E. On top of the sculpture, Robert held daily signings for a special collectible bust release, had his Mr. Bitchin' documentary screened, and was the centerpiece of a panel on the evolution of his work from comic book renegade to one of the most importrant contemporary artists in the world.

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 22, 2013
The Juxtapoz staff spent this last weekend (and week) in San Diego at Comic-Con. While there, we spent quite a lot of time simply wandering around and trying to take in the spectacle, costumes, people, events, and general craziness that become downtown San Diego during the event. Enjoy the first set of our photos from Comic-Con 2013! Including: David Choe & DVDASA signing and podcast, Robert Williams signing, screening, sculpture, and panel, the Gentle Giant x Juxtapoz booth, Alex Pardee, Skinner, and anything else that caught our eye!

But is it Art?

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Thomas Kinkade died on April 7th, and while I certainly hadn’t thought about him in quite sometime, I immediately became transported to a bower of flowers, gently puffing chimneys and picket fences, and more pastel flowers. Vivid reds would be too jarring. Henri Matisse observed that “There is an inherent truth, which must be disengaged from the outward appearance of the object to be represented. This is the only truth that matters … exactitude is not truth.”
