Alex Pardee Studio Visit with Brett Amory

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 20, 2012
If you look up the word "amory" on Urban Dictionary, the number one definition states that "amory" is often used to describe Heaven, especially when used to describe the wonderful beacon of light. Though I doubt that oil painter Brett Amory is aware of this at all, as I stare at some of his ethereal and often eerie urban landscape paintings, the definition seems to fit the bill.

After ROA placed one of our favorite street pieces of the year (do we rank things like this now?) in Chicago, the Belgian artist, although we assume he hasn't seen his own bed in years, is back in San Francisco for an installation and exhibition at 941 Geary. Dominant Species is his latest body of work created directly after his road trip from the East to the West of America.

SPECIAL DELIVERY Bay Area 2012

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 12, 2012
Thousands turned out this past weekend to catch the Endless Canvas graffiti warehouse opening, Special Delivery Bay Area 2012, in Berkeley, California. The show was a follow up to last year's show of the same name in Portland, Oregon, and despite minimal coverage by any local press outlets (minus the morning news sighting graffiti "tags" spread around the neighborhood, something the building owner already said they would pay to clean up), the show turned out to be one of the most exciting art events in the East Bay in recent years.

Paintings by Kelly Allen

Illustration // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
At first glance Kelly Allen's works might seem like collage, but in fact each element is painstakingly painted or drawn by the San Francisco artist. Natural imagery, man-made objects and geometric abstractions play off one another in her strange and striking juxtapositions...

Evah Fan "What Have You" @ Park Life, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
When we featured Evah Fan in the magazine back in October 2010, she was living in Stockholm, Sweden, making intricate illustrations that, and as Kristin Farr wrote at the time, were "unintentionally puzzling." Now back living in Oakland, California, perhaps things will get more puzzling or clear as Fan is set to open What Have You at Park Life in San Francisco on August 31.
