Juxtapoz Magazine – KAWS: Art Louder Than Words

From toys to graffiti, fine art to fashion, art collecting and public art that bridges American pop culture to an international audience, KAWS has defined an era where the artist can be whatever he or she wants to be without compromise. And, in many ways, KAWS has achieved success as an artist without being shackled to a particular thing, a genre, if you will. He really is known as just KAWS, and by and large, he is quite content.

Adventures With the Mojave Phone Booth, A Tale of an Isolated Phone Booth’s Rise and Fall Due to Fame

In 2014, we wrote about Godfrey “Doc” Daniels and his Kickstarter campaign to raise money to write a book about about the Mojave Phone Booth, a phone booth that once existed an isolated stretch of California desert and became Internet-famous in the late 1990s. Unfortunately, despite its fame, the phone booth was removed in May 2000. By 2018, Daniels, however, was able to raise enough money to publish his book “Adventures With the Mojave Phone Booth” and is currently selling it online.

Visualizing our world’s ever-growing urban infrastructure

For his projects Exodus and Timeout, Marcus Lyon takes overhead photographs and edits them into fantastical scenes that nonetheless seem plausible. LAX isn’t that large, no waterpark in Houston has that many pools, and Dubai’s roads do not have 70+ lanes, but you kinda have to look at satellite imagery on Google Maps to verify the fabrications.

Nadine Boughton: The Modess Women | LENSCRATCH

One of the taboo subjects in any arena is….well, menstration. Nadine Boughton tackles the subject with humor and beauty in her new series, The Moddess Woman. Her project reexamines a 1950’s ad campaign for Modess sanitary napkins, a campaign that in truth had little to do with bodily functions and more to do with glamour and mystique. She re-imagines the ads with 21st century consideration, and with her unique ability to transform the past.  Nadine’s work has been well celebrated over the years, including a number of recent exhibitions. She has eight pieces in the current exhibit, Domestic Affairs: Domesticity, Identity, and the Home, at the Newport Art Museum, Newport, RI, running through May 6, 2018, her work is featured in Outspoken: Seven Women Photographers showing at the Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts, Providence, RI, through April 13. 2018. Plus she will have images in the new book by Robert Hirsch, Light and Lens, Photography in the Digital Age, due out May 14, 2018, published by Focal Press.

Philippe Calandre, Utopia – The Eye of Photography

For nearly twelve years, Philippe Calandre’s work has revolved around architecture, and more recently utopia. Since 2012, he has been using the technique of photomontage to introduce imaginary elements into real sites. The peculiar character of Philippe Calandre’s landscapes resides in a subtle balance between the past, the future, and the present. The use of black-and-white or subdued colors lends these images a timeless value. The photographer thus transports us into unknown regions where our dreams and our unconscious may be projected. These utopias evoke a whole literary, architectural, and cinematographic culture. In particular, we think of Thomas More, the sixteenth-century founder of the concept of utopia, of the Babel-like city imagined by Fritz Lang in Metropolis; and of the futurist visions of the architect Antonio Sant’Elia.

Q&A: Yancey Richardson on Gender Diversity in the Art World | PDNPulse

A study published this spring by The City University of New York’s Guttman College argued that the art world remains predominantly white and male. Nearly 70 percent of the artists represented at 45 prominent New York galleries were male, the study suggested.

ART4SPACE: Invader’s Space Race

Back to 2012, near Cape Canaveral, where we witnessed the mission ART4SPACE being born. This film unveils the incredible journey of the artist Invader and his obsession: send one of his art pieces to space and bring back the footage.

Unpleasant Design & Hostile Urban Architecture

Unpleasant design book

Unpleasant designs take many shapes, but they share a common goal of exerting some kind of social control in public or in publicly-accessible private spaces. They are intended to target, frustrate and deter people, particularly those who fall within unwanted demographics.

Maggie Meiners: Visiting Rockwell

Lenscratch Skin Deep

The idea of using Rockwell’s illustrative images as inspiration for photographs is a bit of a meta endeavor as it was discovered that Rockwell’s work was based on photographs that he orchestrated. The idea of revisiting these iconic illustrations is made more interesting by Maggie’s exploration of contemporary subject matter, leading her to the conclusion that the past is not so different than the present

Either/Or: A Solo Exhibition of Works by Todd Lim


“Either/Or” is a solo exhibition of works by Todd Lim at Booth Gallery inspired by the title of Søren Kierkegaard’s masterpiece. “Either/Or,” explores two world views, one centered on the aesthetic life and the other on an ethical life. Kierkegaard’s purpose, according to the author, was to ‘exhibit the existential relationship between the aesthetic and the ethical in an existing individual’ and remind people ‘what it means to exist, and what inwardness signifies.’

The Golden Age of Hand-Painted Film Posters from Ghana


When Frank Armah began painting posters for Ghanaian movie theaters in the mid-1980s, he was given a clear mandate: Sell as many tickets as possible. If the movie was gory, the poster should be gorier (skulls, blood, skulls dripping blood). If it was sexy, make the poster sexier (breasts, lots of them, ideally at least watermelon-sized). And when in doubt, throw in a fish. Or don’t you rememberthe human-sized red fish lunging for James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me?

Steve Cutts’ Anti-capitalist Illustrations

Juxtapoz Cutts04

Since quitting his job with a firm that illustrated for companies such as Google and Reebok, Steve Cutts has turned a corner with his subject matter, critiquing the very systems which used to employ him. He is now a freelance illustrator, the bulk of his work critiquing the capitalist system, the plunder of the earth’s resources, and our tech-obsessed culture

Preview: Inside Banksy’s “Dismaland” @ Tropicana, Weston-super-Mare


Well, we had to keep a secret a little longer than we wanted to, but finally today, we have been able to announce our exclusive interview and cover story with Banksy, but also get to be on the ground to preview his newest and largest project to date, Dismaland. Set inside an old public swimming pool facility in the English coastal city of Weston-super-Mare, Banksy told us that is situated for the perfect art audience.
