Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
San Francisco-based artist Travis Collinson's process involves taking elements of photographs and sketches and reinterpreting them at a larger scale in his paintings.

Paintings by David Marc Grant

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
This morning we take a look at the paintings of San Francisco-based artist David Marc Grant. David is interested in the process and problem of solving formal painting issues as well as geo-political issues. For this reason, he asks the viewer to fall in love with the consumption of brightly colored consumer objects (his paintings), "while simultaneously suggesting the dangerous consequences implicit in the act."
