Joram Roukes "Paramnesia" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 11, 2014
Next Saturday, July 19th, Thinkspace will be presenting new works by Dutch artist Joram Roukes (April, 2013) in Paramnesia. Roukes has been residing and working in Los Angeles over the past six months, drawing inspiration from his time spent in the city for this new body of work. Combining imagery distilled from the observed and the imagined, the artist’s paintings invoke a schizophrenic contemporaneity colonized by both disaster and desire. Roukes’ works present us with fractured identities and chasmic experiences: frayed realities ambiguously dramatized through the aberrations of fantasy

Juxtapoz x Adobe Present: The Making of... A Jeremy Fish Drawing

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 10, 2014
For the past few months, we have been following a special project between Adobe, Juxtapoz, and Jeremy Fish, in which Fish will be creating an animated mural that utilizes the new updates to Adobe Creative Cloud and the new creative hardware, Adobe Ink & Slide. Previously we had asked, “What if Fish took his 100 drawings—telling not only his history but also a special story about San Francisco—and created an animation that could be projected in a public space in the city for passersby to see as part of a moving-mural experience?” At the end of July 2014, Fish will be projecting the mural in the North Beach neighborhood, which he calls home.

Mike Kershnar: Painting Flesh

Erotica // Wednesday, July 09, 2014
'This project came about when Bay Area filmmaker Sean Desmond asked me about the possibility of filming me paint on a human body in my Inner Richmond apartment.  It was an exciting idea and I wanted to give it some narrative.  I came up with a lost lover, reanimation tale that would include bits of ritual and ceremony...

Music // Wednesday, July 09, 2014
We have been celebrating our special Madlib cover story on the site and through all of our social media channels all week, and we get to have a little fun playing with all of Madlib's projects over the years.

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 07, 2014
Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.

Madlib Invasion: Quasimoto "Low Class Conspiracy"

Music // Monday, June 30, 2014
For the next month on Juxtapoz.com, we are going to be looking at the career and influence of Madlib. Not only is he known as a versatile musician, Madlib has led a career of alter-ego art direction and created a cast of characters that are important pieces in his canon. Of course, Quasimoto comes to mind first, and Jeff Jank's legendary character design provided a context to Madlib's musical vision. Today, we show you "Low Class Conspiracy," as part of the STONES THROW VIDEO CONTEST #4. Directed by Kristoffer Crook. Stay tuned for a very special August 2014 issue announcement in the coming week....
