As We Rest in the Shadows
As We Rest in the ShadowsAndriana NativioThrough an intimate portrait of sisters Jae and Jenni, Andriana Nativio recalls her own girlhood bond with nature, while commenting on the forces that seek to disrupt it.Fairy tales and religious scripts have long been used as a tool to educate children. These stories can shape and guide a child’s belief systems and values. But to what extent do they perpetuate unhealthy tropes, particularly for young girls? In revisiting these tales of her childhood, pho

Peach Fuzz is Pantone's Colour of The Year for 2024, reflecting a need for kindness
It's supposed to be the annual colour choice that gives us a sense of collective global mood. Whatever your thoughts on Pantone's Colour of The Year, it seems Peach Fuzz for 2024 hits just the right note. We discover more about a shade that reflects how many of us feel.

“Crocodile Tears” by Amado V Hernandez
T his time last year, Penguin Southeast Asia released Amado V Hernandez’s first novel The Preying Birds (Mga Ibong Mandaragit), a classic of modern Filipino literature that had somehow more or less missed the attention of international publishers up to that point. This has been followed, in just the space of just twelve months, with Hernandez’s second and last novel Crocodile Tears—or Luha ng Buwaya, first published in 1962.
Crocodile Tears centers on Bandong, a teacher at the local school in th

Shepard Fairey: The Iconic Icon
As I enter Shepard Fairey’s Los Angeles studio on a sunny October afternoon, a considerably large painting of Andy Warhol sits on an easel, eyes focused and looming directly over the shoulder of Fairey as he adds watercolor touches to a series of works on paper. I can’t help but see the significance of the moment, of this scene. Fairey could, rather easily or perhaps too nonchalantly, be compared to Warhol, an ambassador of something we call Pop, an artist who changed the perception and definiti

On view in Brussels through December 16, 2023, the exhibition will feature a series of new oil paintings and charcoal drawings that appropriate—and subvert—archival imagery with the inclusion of the artist’s characteristically irreverent details.

Criticism stings, but would the profession be worse off without it? We canvass opinions from up and down the design industry.
You've poured your heart and soul into a graphic design project. Now, finally, it's out in the world. You sit back nervously, hoping for universal praise for your hard work. But instead, you get a steady drip-drip of criticism.
It's absolutely gutting, of course. But is it the
Inès Longevial: Pourfendue @ Almine Rech, London
Inès Longevial (the former Juxtapoz cover artist) paints faces and bodies traversed by silence, inhabited gracefully and modestly by vast fields of color. Creating reliefs and furrows in flesh reddened by the sun or tinged with blue in the morning, her work with light gives the female portraits the scope of a scenery and the eloquence of a story, like the contour of a dream.
