The Mind Melting work of Flakonkishochki

Illustration // Sunday, August 11, 2013
Lets take a trip into the psychedellic brain of Andrey Kasay aka  Flakonkishochki (which literally translates to “BottleOfBowels”). His conceptual illustration is laced with hyper-sexual pups, businessmen, surreal tendencies and of course, meat. New favorite from a reader submission. This is borderline questionable for work... let that be you warning. Thanks Andrey!!

Sand Calligraphy by Andrew Van Der Merwe

Street Art // Sunday, August 11, 2013
Using writing instruments specifically for sand and techniques learned from over 20 years of being a calligrapher, CapeTown, South Africa artist, Andrew Van Der Merwecreates elegant sand drawings. Speaking on his practice, "The work is usually very temporal, often lasting no more than an hour before it is taken by the wind or the tide. I carve the letters in the sand using various instruments and then photograph them with my Nikon D700. I leave no footprints and the tide leaves me with a clean slate.”

Music // Friday, August 09, 2013
Juxtapoz is on the ground at the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park each August (and that would be Aug 9-11 this year), and again for the third year, we have curated the art portion of the event. This year, we have Mike Shine, Dennis McNett, and Camille Rose Garcia created site-specific installations, but of course, there is a ton of music, and today we are showcasing some of the best music that we might be seeing today... let's gander... 

Embroidered Architecture by Stephanie Clark

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
Salt Lake City-based artist Stephanie Clark paints with thread. "The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complexity." Referring to it as her "way down the rabbit hole," Clark has created a system of sweing the threads in a sequence that ultimately "gives the illusion of a certain vaule or color. The direction in which the threads are sewn mimic the way the lines are layred in a drawing to give the hint of depth, volume, and form."

Paintings by Travis Collinson

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
San Francisco-based artist Travis Collinson's process involves taking elements of photographs and sketches and reinterpreting them at a larger scale in his paintings. Influenced by classical painting and minimal abstraction, Collinson work plays with perspective and distortion in an effective and interesting way.

The early 70s saw America's first space station built and occupied. Following a successful trip to the moon (so they say), the possibilities were endless and within reach! Space colony? Sure! These illustrations were commissioned by NASA and depicted each artist's vision of the future of space stations. 

Floor Installations by Suzan Drumming

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
Amsterdam-based artist Suzan Drumming makes paintings, photographs, films, installations, and other works in public spaces. Like much of her work, these particular floor installations originated from her fascination for watching and playing with space, illusion and optical effects. Composed of crystal, chromed metal, precious stones, mirrors and optical glass, Drumming's installations can look clean and uncluttered from afar and detailed and disorienting up close.
