Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
San Francisco based artist, designer, illustrator and all around creative dude Patrick Sean GIbson has just launched an App, Brain Snap.

Painting from Grime

Tattoo artist Grime does not just work his magic with ink, but also with paint too. Born in Colorado and currently working out of SF, Grime is one talented dude and we are always stoked to see his new work.

Nick Mann's Modern Folk

Illustration // Sunday, July 15, 2012
'Nick Mann (aka Doodles) is San Francisco based illustrator and street artist who's eye grabbing work can be simply described as modern day folk art (only it's not that simple). His creations are a complicated combination of delicately wheat-pasted pieces of paper, gritty spray paint, and eerie neon nordic creatures...'

Preview: Jeremy Fish "Where Hearts Get Left" @ FIFY24SF Gallery, SF

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
Last week, we headed over to Jeremy Fish's San Francisco studio to check out all the new work he was preparing for his exhibition, Where Hearts Get Left, opening Saturday, July 14, at FIFTY24SF Gallery. The show, featuring new paintings, sculptures, drawings, a new book, and a six screenprints, is all built around the concept of "a visual love letter to San Francisco," where Fish noted, "I am begging her to not become a sterile West Coast Manhattan any time soon. What are the constants? What are the things I will always love about SF no matter what happens?”

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
San Francisco-based Hilary Pecis, who we featured in our May 2011 issue, has a new exhibition, In Accordance, up at Halsey McKay Gallery in East Hampton through July 17. We have championed Pecis' work in the past because we feel it represents a traditional painters embrace of new media and technology, as she researches and culls hundreds of Internet images on a particular concept and creates a canvas based on those findings.

Studio Visit: Jeremy Fish

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 05, 2012
We get a chance to visit with Jeremy Fish every so-often, and generally it is on the occasion of a new exhibition or body of work being built. What we enjoy the most about visiting Fish in his SF North Beach studio is that whatever research or preparation he has compiled while making the work, the remnants are evident throughout his space...
