Graffiti, and Street Art for that matter, have been analyzed so much over the past few decades for both its content and social impact as both vandalism at times, and now, for the most part, as the seeds for urban development. Whether 6-story figurative murals or a tag caught on a rolldown, art made on the streets as many different roles to play and stories to tell. But when it comes to the work of Valencia, Spain-based artist, Felipe Pantone, there is something else happening. There is a combination of analyzing and intersecting our digital lives with the spaces we live in and around. From works in public that look like gigantic digital glitches to his paintings and interactive sculptures that almost align more with Op Art than they do with traditional street and graffiti art, Pantone is a bit of an enigma in the contemporary art world.

Fresh off this newest solo show, BIG TIME DATA, on view at RGR in Mexico City, Radio Juxtapoz co-host, Doug Gillen, made his way to Spain to catch with Pantone to break down the state of work and the ideas behind “big data.” What Pantone shares with Radio Juxtapoz is the idea that more and more galleries and curators should invest more in artist’s with concepts than an over emphasis on refined figuration. An artist with an experimental passion and now an internationally recognized star, we are excited to share this conversation with Felipe Pantone.

The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by Fifth Wall TV’s Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 037 was recorded live in Valencia, Spain, February 13, 2020.

And Now... How To Paint a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazine

And Now… How To Paint a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazin…

Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz and If You Were Now previously shared a small tutorial by Marcel Dzama entitled, “How To Draw Bat.” Today, Dzama, the Calgary-born, Brooklyn based artist, now shares how to take that drawing and transform it to painting. Here is our summary: When we teamed up with If You Were Here Now, we knew Dzama was a perfect artist for a tutorial and art therapy session. His music choices and topics are always so specially produced, distinct with a certain aesthetic that can only be from the hand and mind of Dzama. Today, the Brooklyn-based artist will teach us how to paint a bat, a feature that shows up in his fine art work frequently. Bats are known to symbolize death and rebirth, often referred to as “Guardians of the Night.” In a moment in our global consciousness that has both extreme travesty and a need to understand our future growth, we are happy to share this video today.

How To Draw a Bat with Marcel Dzama | Juxtapoz Magazine

Juxtapoz Magazine – Marcel Dzama is a bit of a Renaissance man. He paints, draws, makes his own costumes, art directs videos and has created a visual universe that is uniquely his own. When we last spoke with Dzama in our February 2017 issue, we noted his work was a mixture of “surrealism, Dada, Duchamp, 1950s literature and punk rock, streams the consciousness of who we are and where we are going. He is the old soul with modernity at his fingertips.” When we teamed up with If You Were Here Now, we knew Dzama was a perfect artist for a tutorial and art therapy session.
