Michael Yaikel's Psychedelic Geometries

Illustration // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Chilean artist Michael Yaikel creates vibrant psychedelic vignettes where shrouded mystics navigate polygonal landscapes of creeping vines and cloud grazing desert flowers. Seemingly a- and all-historical, at once futuristic and prehistoric, Yaikel's complex geometrically patterned paintings span time and space. Yaikel's works are found on gallery and city walls alike.

The time that Basquiat's Resume Sold for $50,000

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Who says you can't get good money from a resume? Apparently, when he was just a lad of 20, Jean-Michel Basquiat, perhaps the most famous artist to cone out of the early 1980's Downtown NYC scene, made a resume that was such crap, so devoid of actual work experience, he got to throw a big fuck you at everyone for listing Warhol, Tennessee Williams, Glenn O'Brien, and Johnny Carson as his contacts. This resume just sold at Sotheby's for $50,000. Actually, come to think of it, this is probably the greatest resume ever. We are sold. 

"NOME," a Photography Exhibition by Nick Sethi

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 13, 2013
After years of traveling the world assisting Terry Richardson and Jonathan Mannion, Brooklyn-based photographer Nick Sethi has begun to make the same impact on the emerging photography scene. His first solo exhibition, NOME, is a culmination of two recent trips to India. Between living under a bridge for 3 months with homeless kids, to attending a festival with naked holy men doing yoga painted with ash, Nick exposes an unseen and intimate India that is overlooked by the locals, and rarely seen by any photojournalist...

Nakamura Hiroshi's 1950s Protest Art

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Born in 1932, Nakamura Hiroshi was trained by the Japan Art Alliance as a reportage painter. The Alliance was 'a postwar art group that advocated politically-themed realist painting.' By the 50s, Hiroshi was very involved in depicting protests against the rise of U.S. military bases. He saw himself as a 'reporter at the frontlines' of confrontations, brandishing sketchbook and pencil as opposed to a camera.

"The Art of the Brick," a LEGO art show by Nathan Sawaya

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Like a lot of kids, LEGOs were a huge part of our childhood. There is no way we are getting rid of those 3 giant boxes of plastic bricks in our closet! Because of the incredible amount of dedication we put into building plastic space ships as a kid, we are proud that "adults' are out there still "playing" with them, and as it seems in Nathan Sawaya's case, making a career out of it!

Video: Sofles - Infinite

Graffiti // Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Remember when graffiti videos were shot on lo-fi VHS tapes, were extra shaky and wouldn’t possibly have anything but Hip Hop as a soundtrack? Do you miss that? We actually kinda do, but videos like this make it easy to forget! Watch as Sofles goes to town in this massive warehouse with Selina Miles filming, giving the viewers something exceptionally different from your average graff vid. Bassnector soundtrack included and definitely fits the mood.
