Jeannie Phan: Fall of the Traveller

Illustration // Friday, October 05, 2012
Jeannie Phan is an internationally published illustrator based in the lovely city of Toronto, Canada. She works in acrylic gouache and ink to create surreal-like images with an urban twist. When I'm she's drawing, she stays busy creating zines, doodling comics or delving into the pits of web coding and video games.

Maya Hayuk has always been one of our favorite artists, and we loved the last time we saw her work in the magazine was our very special Barnstormers issue in December 2009. She is now opening a new set of works at Toronto's Cooper Cole Gallery, opening on September 6, 2012.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 26, 2012
We have been impressed with the range of work from Jen Mann this year, from these layered color portraits to her stark white on white portrait works as well. Currently, Mann has work on display in Daydream Believer at Neubacher Shor Contemporary in Toronto, and we have a few examples of newer works here. The show is on through August 4, 2012.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 19, 2012
Cooper Cole in Toronto is hosting a great line-up in the group exhibition, Zagga Zow, now on display through August 20, 2012. Cooper Cole went into the deep trenches of the urban dictionary to find out what Zagga Zow means, and they came up with "A word with literally no definition." In the meantime, Matt Leines, Larissa Bates, Devin Troy Strother, Marc Bell, Charlie Roberts, John Riepenhoff, James Kirkpatrick, Anders Oinonen, and Sara Clendering are all showcased.

Ray Caesar: Blessed

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 11, 2012
'I don’t really approach my work with a preconceived message but I do find a continuation of a process that unfolds that surprises even me after I finish the work. It does seem that my work contains aspects of a story that unfolds and has a great deal to do with a process of intense psychotherapy and the years of dealing with dissociative identity disorder (a form of multiple personalities) and trauma I went through in childhood...' Ray Caesar

Souther Salazar "You and Me (and the Mouse in the Moon)" @ NARWHAL Projects, Toronto

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 28, 2012
California's Souther Salazar headed up to Toronto recently for a new solo show, You and Me (and the Mouse in the Moon) at NARWHAL Projects. The show comprises of drawings, paintings, and sculpture, all featuring Salazars' playful styles and signature characters. Throughout the show, we follow the two protagonists through Salazar's universes. Consider it a journey show.

The Work of Marc Bell

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Marc Bell will soon be showing in the group show Zagga Zow at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, and we thought this was as good time as any to show a few works from one of our favorite illustrators/comic/cartoonists/artists. Apart from creating the comic Shrimpy and Paul, his monograph Hot Potatoe is a must have, and the Canadian artist has been featured in various publications such as Kramers Ergot and The Ganzfeld.

The Flatiron Mural in Toronto

Street Art // Monday, June 18, 2012
Located in downtown Toronto, the Flatiron building built in 1891 by architect David Roberts was the first flatiron preceding the famed New York building.  In 1998, Canadian artist, Derek Besant painted a mural that mirrors the building directly across from it.  The mural consists of over 50 panels attached to a steel frame mounted on the wall and gives off the effect that the painting is fluttering in the wind, being held up by screws.

Photography Sculptures by Susy Oliveira

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 16, 2012
This is an idea we have seen a few times, but Susy Oliveira has created some of our favorite photo sculptures we have ever seen. Creating a pixelated effect, in what the Toronto artist calls a "compromise between sculpture and photography," the characters almost appear like video games characters in a still life reality.
