    095: Pat Perry is Building Community | Radio Juxtapoz

    For years, we have been fans of, and followed the muralist, painter, photography, illustrator and filmmaker Pat Perry. What started as a fascination with his On the Road style journal drawings, documented a bohemian life on the go around North America has now turned to an international view of building communities through art in places far and wide, including where this episode was recorded, in Ferizaj, Kosovo for Mural Fest Kosovo.

    The Detroit-based artist is one of America's leading muralists, but when you dig deeper, his paintings are like contemporary Andrew Wyeth scenes of rural life and tender moments that often go overlooked. In this episode of Radio Juxtapoz, Doug Gillen speaks with Pat Perry as he completed his mural in Ferizaj and we hear about how the artist tried to embed himself where he paints, the bringing together of all his creative passions and taking of the life jacket of his career and jumping into the deep end of art. 

    Pat was a participating artist for the On/Offline edition of Mural Fest Kosovo.

    094: Emma Stern and the Lava Babys | Radio Juxtapoz

    What world are we living in, really? We spend so much time traversing through different realms of reality and existence that sometimes our digital self meshes with our physical self and we can pretty much create any persona we want at any given time. Emma Stern is brilliantly creating art in these realms. She has observed and participated in the metaverse with her Lava Babys but found a way to take that universe into the most traditional of places; the easel and oil painting. It's a fascinating concept that is both traditional and of the most the most contemporary, and she is having so much fun doing it.

    Her practice of taking 3D worlds and then taking that into the studio to paint has gained her international attention and made the NYC-based painter one of the newest voices in the contemporary art landscape. With shows at Half Gallery, Almine Rech and more, she is challenging our perceptions of what we consider "Internet art" and the possibilities of painting.

    In this conversation of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, Emma Stern discusses her process, what she thinks about the role of woman shaping the metaverse aesthetic and how a little salacious fun is not a bad place to explore our world.

    093: Sophie Crichton and the Goosebumps Down A Spine | Radio Juxtapoz

    Every now and again, the Radio Juxtapoz podcast gets a chance to catch an emerging artist on the cusp of a pivotal moment in their career. What mean is literally in the gallery with the artist as their newest show is about to open. We love that, the energy and anxiety, the excitement and contemplation. In the instance of Toronto-born, Barcelona based Sophie Crichton, we found her at her solo show Bare Bones, opening at OMNI Gallery in London and her at the precipice of a major moment for her career.

    Bare Bones is about abstraction, but it's also about the feelings we can't quite say in words as we go about this ever-changing landscape that we call daily life. We don't often have conversations with abstract painters on the podcast, but there is something so refreshing about conversations about mark-making, the challenges of abstraction and how an artist uprooted her life in Toronto for a completely new scene in Spain.

    092: Glenn Lutz is Asking Us to Find Ourselves | Radio Juxtapoz

    092: Glenn Lutz is Asking Us to Find Ourselves | Radio Juxtapoz

    We are asking more questions these days, aren't we? As fractured as we all seem, as disjointed and uncertain the present and future may seem, we are beginning to have conversations about how we face ourselves, peers, family, society and our past. The pandemic reset many of our lives, but also put a new perspective on our identities and the existence of those around us. If this time didn't change you or cause you to reflect, you really weren't paying attention.

    Glenn Lutz is a writer and conceptual artist whose new book, There’s Light: Artworks & Conversations Examining Black Masculinity, Identity and Mental Well-being, is a result of years of conversations with fine artist and creatives in the Black community who are actively engaged in examining their mental health in the 21st century. In conversations with the likes of the late Virgil Abloh, Mark Bradford, Rashid Johnson, Steve McQueen and more, Lutz has become the conduit to an overlooked conversation in not only our society but the art world as well.

    In this episode of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, we speak to Lutz about putting this new book together, how open his subjects allowed themselves to be, growing up in LA, his own mental heath battles, how religion played a role in his life and how a move to Hawaii has settled his mind.

    091: Martin Whatson Stencils His Way Into History | Radio Juxtapoz

    091: Martin Whatson Stencils His Way Into History | Radio Juxtapoz

    The first thing you need to know about Oslo-based artist Martin Whatson is that he is one of the nicest people in all of street art. We have known him for years on the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, traveled throughout Norway with him, been at numerous festivals and Basel years and have never sat down for a proper interview. Until, of course, Nuart Aberdeen and a chance to reconnect with old friends and get a sense of where everyone has been at over the course of a few years of dormant travel. And Martin has been busy.

    Starting as a graffiti artist and stencil artist on the streets of Oslo, Whatson has always had a keen sense of a finding the right place for his artwork. His prints are some of the most popular releases in the game, and his murals, especially the one in Aberdeen this year, take both a historic and contemporary look at the city he is in and finds a way to create an eye-popping work to leave behind.

    After a long night out, where all 3 of us were feeling it, we sat down with Whatson to discuss his early years in Norway, how he has been able to create a space for himself with prints and fine art, and how the pandemic allowed him time with family and in the studio.

    090: Jacoba Niepoort and the Art of Reconnecting at Nuart Aberdeen | Radio Juxtapoz

    Working in the public space creates an interesting dichotomy for an artist. It is both a highly personal relationship to an audience and the wall itself, but the brief moment in time in which a street artist or muralist is in the location while they paint can create a separation from the artwork. In many cases, you leave just as the town begins to embrace your art. For Danish painter, Jacoba Niepoort, an artist who literally creates some of the most intimate works in the public space we have ever seen, there is both a tenderness and strength in how she approaches a wall. And, there is something about materiality, the surfaces she works on, that is a unique.

    Creating murals and works on paper, Jacoba is working within time with surfaces that can be both enduring and fragile. A wall could crumble or the weather could wear down the colors. Working on paper, the art may fade with time. We love that sort of balance, and so does Jacoba.

    In this episode of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, we speak with Jacoba in the middle of painting a mural at Nuart Aberdeen, a wall that proved difficult with the changing weather patterns. She spoke to us about how the pandemic changed her practice, how she always wanted to change the world and pivoted to a new career and how she paints the bold poses of woman in unison.

Super!

Love the podcast

SPEREIGH ,

Top Notch

Dope show!

They find very talented, relevant artists who are putting out some of the most substantial work of our time. The host is easy to listen to and asks compelling questions. He and his guests have shredded the pretentiousness that so often makes “the art world” inaccessible to regular folks. Dear elitists, come down to the streets and learn something, the art lives in the people. Juxta makes this abundantly clear.
