The Work of Evelyne Axell

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 28, 2014
Belgian artist Evelyne Axell (1935-1972) invented a genuine proto-feminist perspective on Pop Art iconography in the 1960s and early 70s. Axell was an acclaimed theater and film actress and screenwriter, before she turned to painting, tutored by the Surrealist René Magritte. The female eroticism in Axell’s work constituted a challenge to art world conventions of her time.

Frank Rudolph Paul's Life on Other Planets 1936-39

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 09, 2014
Frank Rudolph Paul was an American science ficiton illustrator of pulp magazines influential in defining what both cover art and interior illustrations in the nascent science fiction pulps of the 1920s looked like. Paul can be credited with the first color painting of a space station and illustrated H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds for Amazing Stories magazine, the first magazine dedicated to science fiction...  

Sci-Fi Surreal Album Covers by Dan McPharlin

Music // Monday, May 05, 2014
A few weeks ago, we found an album cover for a Prefuse 73 record that blew our minds, but we couldn't find who the artist was. We just found out that Australian artist Dan McPharlin, who has an eye and hand for some incredible science fiction and surreal landscape works, is the man behind many great album covers.

Update: The Works of Alexandro Garcia

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
We recently saw some pieces from Uruguay's Alexandro Garcia that we hadn't seen before. A few years ago we became aware of his incredibly diverse and other-worldly drawings. A UFO sighting meant a profound change in the life of Garcia, who soon began to make drawings of an intricate and meticulous graphics from the experience.

The Sci-Fi Universe of Alex Andreev

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
There will be some people who scoff at the idea that these works by Alex Andreev are digital paintings, but we love what the St. Petersburg, Russia based artist has going on in his head. These are fantastic version of a dystopian future, created entirely in Adobe Photoshop and Corel Paint. 

New Works by Kilian Eng

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 27, 2012
We featured Swedish artist Kilian Eng in the magazine this past June 2012, and we just saw that he updated his site with a group of fantastic works. Otherworldly, Tron style, and some futuristic spacesuit travel pieces make this seem like a spread from a magazine of the year 2050. 

Mars Panorama by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 12, 2012
Courtesy of NASA's panoramic camera (known as the Pancam) on the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, we now have a new view of the Martian landscape. It is quite an incredible image of our much fantasized about neighbor in the solar system. Here are some details from NASA themselves: "This scene recorded from the mast-mounted color camera includes the rover's own solar arrays and deck in the foreground, providing a sense of sitting on top of the rover and taking in the view."

Sci-fi and Fantasy Works by Don Ivan Punchatz

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 28, 2012
We love that as time has gone on from the era of the great pulp paperback books in science fiction and fantasy, that the artists who created the memorable covers are getting their notice years on. As you can tell on the site the past few days, we have been looking into more fantasy and science fiction works, looking at certain artists in particular, and one that we really have wanted to showcase is the late Don Ivan Punchatz.

Fantasy Worlds by James McCarthy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
James McCarthy has a wild imagination, one that he has high command over and can spill out into his artwork. The artist creates highly detailed, surreal universes that look like carnivals on distant planets. Where Dali meets science fiction...

The Work of Michael Kagan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
New York City-based Michael Kagan makes us remember why we love space travel in the first place; it documents well, even if it is oil on linen pieces based on photographs. He has a whole wonderful series of large scale paintings of NASA space missions, all created with both figurative and abstract flourishes.
