Yasuaki Oishi's Negative Space "Reverse of Volume RG" Installations

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
Using translucent plastic sheets and hot black glue, Japanese artist Yasuaki Oishi shapes amazing floating sculptures. His process begins by draping the plastic over some sort of mold, whether it be cardboard boxes, or in the most recent case, a car. He then ties lines of string above the plastic and proceeds to drip the hot black glue down over the string to the plastic. When "mold" is removed, voila! Watch a video after the jump...

The National Pyrotechnic Festival Photographed by Thomas Prior

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
We are pretty sure, from these photos, that the National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico does not have any safety standards. The nine day festival features rides, food, music, and of course fireworks. New York-based photographer Thomas Prior travelled down to the festival to document the chaos, excitement, explosions, and fun?

Paintings by Hyon Gyon Park

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
We are really enjoying the work of South Korean artist Hyon Gyon Park this morning. Park had her first solo exhibition in the US at Shin Gallery in NYC this spring. We were lucky enough to catch some of her large-scale work in person at ArtMRKT in San Francisco this year and it is truly spectacular.

Spencer Tunick, May 2013

Vault // Wednesday, June 19, 2013
This past May, we were very excited to print an exclusive interview with famed photographer and public artist, Spencer Tunick. As you probably know, Tunick is the photographer with the knack of getting a large group of people to strip naked, go somewhere very public, and be photographed as a collective and spirit of bare emotion. His works are powerful, unifying, provocative, and at times, just really damn fun and full of life. We loved the piece, and wanted to share it with our online readers.

The Gilded Dinosaur Skeleton Installation @ Louis Vuitton, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 19, 2013
We actually like a bit of the irony in this window display. We always think that fashion house store window displays has the capacity for really great art installations, and Louis Vuitton is always at the high point of that experimentation. Taking inspiration from the Natural History Museum in Paris' Les Jardins des Plantes, the 5th Avenue storefront is now adorned with gold dinosaur skeletons, mixed with the early Fall 2013 look.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 19, 2013
A few of us here in the office are in the process of buying some new furniture, and I know how i feel; I like things minimal but with a bit concept. Maybe I should go with this collection of spider furniture by designer Bruno Freire for Brazilian brand Oficina Polvo. The collection features an assortment of lamps, tables, desks, and even a chandelier.
