The second coming of The Representational Art Conference (TRAC) will take place March 2-5, 2014 at the Crowne Point Plaza hotel in Ventura. The 4-day conference is packed with presentations, demos, and panel discussions given by an international cast of artists, curators, philosophers, and art writers. The brain child of Michael Pearce and Michael Lynn Adams, the conference was founded in 2012 responding to a need for more writing and organizational support for our growing contemporary figurative movement.

Our good friend and 2x Juxtapoz cover artist (most recently the November 2012 Political Art issue, a real gem if you ask us) is about to showcase a new series of paintings, Popagandastan, at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City this October 26, 2013. Just in time for Halloween. And US general elections. Last month teased a few of the paintings from the show, and today we have a few more for you.

With a hefty price tag of $7,500 and limited to just 10, this fiberglass bust collaboration between artist, Ron English and Guns & Roses guitarist, Slash is not as easily attainable as lets say a happy meal toy? English worked with Slash to create his recent album cover art for “SLASH & Friends” and with this bust the artist interpreted SLASH’s iconic skull with a top hat. The pieces were made in collaboration with Hong Kong’s prestigious sculpture house, Garage Works, and if you have a large wad of money burning a hole in your pocket then go for it!

Crucial Fiction, is the name of the new solo show of Ron English in New York City at Opera Gallery. After some delayed caused by hurricane Sandy, we finally could look closely to his new series of paintings that address a fantastical question: What might happen if a 50 year old man created what his 8-year old self wanted: a world of cowboys, indians, and a large group of very strange disposable heroes?

Due to superstorm Sandy, Ron English had his new solo show at Opera Gallery in NYC, Crucial Fiction, delayed to Friday, November 9, 2012. As we asked Ron to set the tone for the election season by curating our November Politics and Art issue, we can't wait to see his new body of work open shop in NYC.

Our November issue curator, Ron English, has painted a giant green muscular baby or as the artist labels it “Temper Tot” on the side of a building in New York making it his first mural in the city in almost 25 years. The impossible to miss green figure was painted in Little Italy and created in conjunction with the New York Comedy Festival that starts tomorrow running through Saturday.
