Apollonia Santclair Erotica

Erotica // Saturday, June 15, 2013
The mysterious Apollonia Santclair serves us an awesomely disturbing batch of black-and-white erotica, and there are no limits to the weirdness with this stuff. She says of her work simply that "Ink is my blood. I draw for my own sake and for your pleasure. A long-time resident of the Old World, I split my time between my kitchen and the studio." 

Artist Interview: Christine Wu

Illustration // Friday, June 14, 2013
Christine Wu is a Los Angeles based artist whose work captures the ephemeral and fragmented body in flux. Wu combines figurative painting, gold leaf and careful line-work to generate fractal visions of her subjects. These works are haunting and sensual, lovely impressions of a visionary mind.

Christopher Coppers' Sculptural Magazine Pieces

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
We are both impressed and slightly bummed we hadn't thought of this before, although we're sure we wouldn't have done such a great job. Artist Christopher Coppers takes regular magazines and often based on both the cover and the content inside, will meticulously cut out, or fray, or fold the pages in some way to turn them into meaningful pieces of art! Even sometimes making art out of Art magazines!
