I recently got an exclusive and personal view into Nicola Verlato's latest work for the centerpiece occasion of this year's Bienalle. The 53rd International Art Exhibition, known far and wide as the heralded Venice Bienalle, features a select group of prominent contemporary artists that represent the best of the best in their respective dedications. This year, the Italian Pavilion has been enlarged to over double its previous size. Join us as Verlato gives us the grand debut of his latest site-specific work for the big show.

If art being created by an intelligent individual with real passion and insight is for you, then the latest paintings by Carrie Ann Baade should be of some interest. At present she is traveling the land while her new works are hanging at Billy Shire Fine Arts, and enjoying the summer break from the demands of academic rigor. Join us as we are given an insight to her curious works, her thoughts as both artist and professor, and knowledge built up by the one teacher always within arm's reach - life.

Come along as we get a peek into some ocean action with Juxtapoz' own Greg Escalante. Lately, Greg's been doing some traveling on his board (SUP = Stand Up Paddleboarding), including this recent trip to Malibu with brother Joe Escalante to meet up with Joe Sorren (Juxtapoz #20). Joe, a health as well as art enthusiast, has just come off running an entire marathon barefoot and couldn't resist getting out and paddling around with the boys. Take a look at the action here...
Artist and entrepreneur Attaboy takes time out from polishing up the last bits of his upcoming solo exhibit to tell us a few things that are on his mind. Or at least things that are on his mind now that it was asked. Click here for a preview of new works and insights into Atta's world.

I'm especially excited about the latest interview that Greg and I got to do. Todd Schorr is an amazing artist and interesting individual to boot. He also clued us in to his latest favorite book, Ross King's "The Judgement of Paris." I'll let you know when I finish how it is, but so far it's engaging from the first page. And I'm already making moves on the second page, so watch out. Todd took time out of working out details for his two upcoming retrospective exhibitions to tell us about his new book, "American Surreal," and fill us in on some things we might not have known before.
