The Work of Jelena Neskovic

Illustration // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Jelena Neskovic is an illustrator in Belgrade, Serbia, whose patterned-animal images are reminiscent of tattoo artwork meshed with traditional folk designs. She also turns these designs into beautiful color-shifting gifs, and a series of t-shirts as well. We'd love to get our hands on some of these!

Cats That Look Like Pinup Girls

Erotica // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Cats that look like pinup girls is a tumblr blog that gives you exactly that: cats that really look like pinup girls. We're particularly fond of some of these more provocative poses. Sometimes you just have to approach 'erotica' from another perspective..

Beautiful Bits: Real-time Face Tracking & Projection Mapping

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
We have featured projection mapping in the past, but the addition of real-time tacking of the projection surface, not to mention that the projection surface is a human face, brings this project to new heights. Mapping a highly detailed projection on to any surface can be a challenge, requiring both pin point accuracy as well as exact timing. When that surface is 3 dimensional and moving, those challenges become even harder overcome. This project brings out all sorts of new ideas for projection mapping...

Los Angeles-based artist Asad Faulwell heavily ornate, large works are reminscent of middle eastern tapestries and depict female combatants from the Algerian War of Independence, attempting to show how the women were both aggressors and victims.  

Gunpowder drawings by Cai Guo-Qiang

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
We recently featured Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang and his solo exhibition The Ninth Wave with a boatload of 99 fabricated animals on the Huangpu River. On August 8th the show opened with a bang – quite literally. His other pieces are an explosive series of gunpowder drawings titled Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Each representing a season, they are porcelain reliefs decorated with gunpowder then ignited at an event by Cai, which created a large gathering of spectators. A contemporary take on traditional Chinese motifs, beautiful details of nature emerged from the explosions and smoke highlighting delicate and intricate details made by the artist and the natural process taken. 

100 Faces by Tomiyuki Sakuta

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
A master of printmaking and an imagination of great heights, Tomiyuki Sakuta created intricate and finely tuned prints depicting wildly composed faces, 100 to be exact. Each piece comes in a wooden box decorated with a copper plate with the title of the series engraved, accompanied with a grinning face. The cherry on top, a dark purple ribbon in the tradition of the Japanese tea ceremonies. Whimsical and obscure, 100 Faces is a marvelous show of fun and horror.

Watch: Tone by Trent Jaklitsch

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
A remarkable short film documenting painting in minuscule shots, New York filmmaker Trent Jaklitsch creates mind-blowing macro sequences of paint. Rather than having the focus be the end-all painting, it hones on the act of painting. From simply making art, to mixing paint, to the bold, and to the subtle strokes applied, Jaklitsch brings all the above to our attention.

The Paintings of Adam Lupton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
“Canadian artist Adam Lupton‘s gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives. His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality.”
