Design Works from Stéphane Massa-Bidal

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
One of the best bio descriptions we have read in a while: "Artist, hair icon, art director, cook, graphic designer, frenchie, Illustrator, dad, genius brain owner, tech digest, curator, co-owner The Contrepétographes." And then graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal throws in this great quote from Larry Niven to complete the feeling: "The Dinosaurs Became extinct Because They Did not Have a space program." Well, then, that makes sense.

KAWS & REAS Have Big Things in store at MTV VMAs?

Music // Friday, August 23, 2013
Well, obviously KAWS has big things in store this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 25 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. We knew he had redesigned the iconic Moonman statue for the award show, and because we like to scour Instagram, we have seen a 60' foot KAWS designed Moonman that will be right in the heart of the Barclays Center during the show. But now we see some updates regarding the great Todd "REAS" James, some bears, and Miley Cyrus. We may actually watch this one. 

Wayne White, June 2012

Vault // Friday, August 23, 2013
Wayne White is a little bit of everything: illustrator, musician, art director, apparently a puppeteer... you know, all those things that make one an artist. You may know him for his art direction of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, or perhaps for his fast becoming signature text over landscape reproduction works that have been part of an amazing monograph edited by Todd Oldham.

Carl Warner's "Foodscapes"

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
A few weeks ago we took a look at Carl Warner's Bodyscapes, today we look at his Foodscapes! The London-based photographer uses the medium of food for the series, constructing incredibly intricate scenes entirely from fruits, vegetables, break, fish, deli meats and other edible items. Hi interpretations and imagination run wild, creating some incredible "Foodscapes!" Watch a video after the jump...

The Work of Alejandrina Herrera

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
  Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor. Telling stories about people, animals, and how they interact with their surroundings, Herrera likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces.

Update: Paintings by Jen Ray

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
This morning we are checking in with fine artist Jen Ray ahead of her solo exhibition Better to Reign in Hell Than Serve in Heavan opening September 13th at Haus am Luetzowplatz in Berlin. The work seems to channel some sort of Rose Bowl Parade about 1,000 years in the future. The Raleigh, North Carolina-born fine artist is represented by Wentrup Gallery in Berlin, and has taken the concepts of these paintings and transformed them into performance pieces.

Paintings and Drawings by Santiago Salvador

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
we are enjoying these paintings by Chilean artist Santiago Salvador this morning. Salvador thinks of his work as constructions, finding painting and illustration as "a gateway to the recognizable, the intimate and the ambiguous that surround us."

FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT: KYZER

Ariko Inaoka's Photographs of Twins

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
Photographer Ariko Inaoka first met Icelandic twins Erna and Hrefna while travelling the country photographing the landscape. She has since returned every year to take pictures of them and continues to until they are 16, documenting the way their relationship changes, as they grow older. We love the series of beautiful and ethereal photos, even finding some of them a little frightening (though this could be because we recently re-watched The Shining)
