Geoff McFetridge does a lot of things very well. He does visuals for the film "HER," collaborations with Jack Spade/Heath Ceramics/NIke/Spike Jonze, and makes beautiful minimalist paintings. He was also the cover of the September 2013 Juxtapoz print edition, and he painted a surfboard for our special benefit auction for Waves for Water that starts today. And, this Friday, March 21, he opens a brand new set of exhibition of 13 paintings, Meditallucination, at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen.

We got to spend a ton of time with SF-based Richard Colman at Art Basel in Miami, as Richard helped design the poolside vibes at the Shore Club South Beach. Aka, he transformed the pool chairs into a Colman vision. Now, the artist is set to open "Noise" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, his third solo exhibition at the gallery. The show comes down Saturday, March 15, so go check it!

We have long been admirers and fans of Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson's work, and love how he has turned abstraction, sculpture, drawing, and design into a cohesive and signature look. This Friday, February 21, 2014, Cody will open "This Place Not For Me" at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, coinciding with Richard Colman's show at V1.

This is a fun little show from the curators of V1 Gallery, where they sent out a message to a bunch of artists they have shown over the years, including Barry McGee, Tim Barber, Ray Potes, Ed Templeton, Art Marcopoulos, and more, and asked them to submit one piece of art, in an edition of 1 + 1AP, that reflects the current state of the individual artists position right now. That show has become "Hindsight," and opens on January 17, 2014.

We like the way V1 Gallery wrote their press release, so we are just going to go with it: Hester is not easy to explain. It has to be viewed and experienced. Hester is not easily understood. Sculptures of amorphous human figures photographed in non descript spaces. A cross between a David Lynch dream, a Henry Moore sculpture and a Francis Bacon painting, mixed by Dr. Jekyll in Frankenstein’s lab. Surreal cubistic tableaus in black and white.

As we noted on the site last week, 2x Juxtapoz cover artist Steve Powers was commissioned to paint a 55-meter long public mural in front of the US embassy in Copenhagen to be completed on November 6, 2013. Our friend in Denmark, Henrik Haven went to check in and see the progress... and it was raining. And still, progress was made...

The Copenhagen scene continues to be an epicenter in Europe, and our friends at V1 Gallery have been doing their part with great curation and projects. The V1 team has worked with the US Embassy in Copenhagen to have former Juxtapoz cover artist, Steve "ESPO" Powers, create a large-scale, 55-meter long public mural in front of the embassy to be completed on November 6, 2013. While Powers is in Denmark, he will be part of a talk and screening of his film, A Love Letter For You.

The European season has been kicking off over the past few weeks, and we just got a look at what V1 Gallery of Copenhagen has going on at the Art Basel week festivities, with a booth of Geoff McFetridge, Todd James, and HuskMItNavn works at the Volta9 fair. If you are in Europe and have a plan to be in Basel, Switzerland for the weekend, we definitely think you should check out this booth featuring some of Juxtapoz' current favorites.

One of our favorites curators of the moment, Jesper Elg of V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, just opened a curated show at The Hole in NYC called Chicken or Beef?. The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."

Copenhagen visual artist, Julie Nord, has created an amazing body of work that is playful and full of doll-like girls with big almond-shaped eyes in feminine dresses, cuteanimals and neat arabesques. She has representation from one of our favorite galleries, Copenhagen's V1.
