We have long been huge fans of Kota Ezawa's lightbox and painting works, and love that kicking off the new year, the artist will have a new series of works, Panorama, on display at Christopher Grimes Gallery in Santa Monica, California. "Ezawa’s work references images in popular culture, cinema, television and art history. Through such media as digital animation, slide projections, paper cut-outs, watercolor, light boxes, and collage, he recontextualizes and distills these iconic images to their most essential forms, communicating the symbolic power they have on the collective psyche."

Former Juxtapoz cover artist, and continually one of our favorite fine artists working today, French-born, Barcelona-based artist Miss Van is set to open a new exhibition, Wild at Heart, at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica on Saturday, August 11, 2012. Internationally known for her poupées, the French word for dolls, Miss Van’s dreamlike narratives are filled with spontaneity and lightness. Yet they also reveal a darker side that has evolved from her experience as an acclaimed graffiti artist.

"My concepts come from my fascination with anatomy and my love of candy and toys," says Maryland-based illustrator Charlie Immer. "I have so much fun creating the blood and bones of my characters. The contrast of the smooth bodies and the complex systems beneath spilling out is very appealing to me."
