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.

Studio Visit: Sam Kieth

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 11, 2012
The first time I visited Sam Kieth's studio, about 10 years ago, he shared cubicle space directly above The Spaghetti Factory. And he had a janitor. The last time I ventured up to Sam Kieth's studio, 6 years later, he was literally working (comfortably, might I add) in a duct-tape-wrapped mummy of a chair in an underground hideout in the forests of Placerville, CA. By underground I mean UNDERGROUND. There was dirt on top of the ceiling...

Featured in our August 2012 issue is San Francisco Bay Area based fine artist, Robert Bowen, who is set to show a new body of work in Lethal Injection, opening August 3 at 111 Minna Gallery.

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... 

Hanging Out With Dr. Lakra in Mexico City

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 04, 2012
Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez, better known as Dr. Lakra (cover artist in August 2010), is a tattoo artist and illustrator who lives in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, and occasionally can be found tattooing in different studios in Mexico City. Last week our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America had the opportunity to see the process when tattooing a piece of a gypsy with lyrics that read "SinYolanda." We love it.

Bom-K, Blo, Brusk, Dran, Gris1, ISO, Jaw, Kan, and Sowat brought more than 100 pieces of artwork from screenprints to sketches, solo and collective canvases down to Melbourne, and we captured some of the process.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
WIth a new solo exhibition at Lazardies Gallery scheduled March 2, 2012,  we visited the London studio of Irish-born and former Juxtapoz cover artist, Conor Harrington. Making sure we get a glimpse of just a few of the new works set for Lazarides, Helen Soteriou (who interviewed Charming Baker back January 2012), we find bits of inspiration and influence strung about in Harrington's workspace.
