“My name is Elle Perez and I’m a photographer from the Bronx, I’ve been working on a documentary for the past like…. four years (consciously anyway, i photographed it before but didn’t know what i was doing) about the afam/latino punk scene in the Bronx that no one really knows exists…I really have a hard time editing this ’cause I’ve been working on it so long. i have like 5,000 images on film and over 30,000 digital files ’cause I’ve been photographing it since I was 12 (I’m 20 now).”

Eugenio Merinos

acorralado
Hilarious sculptures from Eugenio Merinos, infused with a large dose of biting political and art-world satire. Think Ron Mueck with a large ax to grind. With appearances at Artefiera 2010 in Bologna, and ARCO 2010 in Madrid, 2010 promises to be a big year for this up and coming Spaniard. More at ADN Galeria.

Jay Schmidt, Free Art School Paintings

Jay Schmidt is one of the more perplexing guys I’ve met, because he appears like a very clean cut, normal guy in his fifties (slacks and a dress shirt) – but there is something right under the surface that you can’t put your finger on.  I am hesitant to say madness, but maybe what passes for madness in a consumer culture.  Once you see his paintings it comes into focus, they present a parody of the world in a queasy wobbling, agitated, cartoonish iconography that lets you know exactly what he is thinking!

Aaron Axelrod is a Los Angeles based painter, who you should definitely keep your eye on.  He’s painted portraits of famous musicians from Madonna to Kanye West, for the Coachella Music Festival.  Axelrod exhibited paintings in Manifest Hope, an art show supporting Barack Obama’s movement (which featured the likes of Shepard Fairey and Ron English).  Lately Aaron has been scrambling everything from political imagery to pornography, probably even down to his eggs.  Believe it or not, the above image is a scrambled painting of Chris Matthews.  Aaron is represented by the David DeSanctis Gallery.
