Checking In With... Eric Yahnker

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We hadn't checked in with former cover artist Eric Yahnker in a long time, and before he opens his new solo show, Ebony & Benghazi at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles on September 6, 2013, we wanted to show a trio of his new works. His new massive colored pencil works feature such titles as The King Grabs Crotch, Vulcan Leather, and Liberace, You Sneaky S.O.B #3. 

3D Street Art by Francois Abelane... Large-Scale

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We can't really fathom what goes into these projects, but for Francois Abelane and this 4,000 square meter slab of 3D street art/literal on the street art, we are going to make an educated guess that this may be hard to accomplish. We just read on Indulgd that the project was done as a commission, "to launch of a new line of Renault trucks in Lyon, France."

E-David the Robot that Learned to Paint

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
e-David is a robot that, after being initially programmed, watches itself paint and decides on it's own where to add the next stroke and what color to use. Fashioned out of a welding machine, e-David was fashioned with cameras and sensors, five different brushes, a 24-color palette and taught to paint by a programmer. Watch the video after the jump...

Watch: Phil Akashi Paints Mandela Portrait with 27,000 Punches

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
Belgian artist Phil Akashi is also know as the 'seal artist.' He uses the traditional East Asian Seal as a medium in his artwork to forge a new artistic language linking East and West, placing the past in the service of the present. Most recently he fixed a Seal to the knuckle of a boxing glove, dipped it in cinnabar paste and began punching a wall with the Chinese characters for 'freedom,' eventually forming a giant portrait of Nelson Mandela. 

Tiny Heads Sculpted from Wonder Bread

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We remember playing with our cheap white bread when we were a kid, smashing and rolling it into balls, so we weren't surprised so much as impressed by Polish artist Milena Korolczuk's food sculptures. She has taken playing with her food to a whole new level, sculpting tiny heads of historic figures from Plato and Lenin to pop artists like Andy Warhol and rappers like Jay-Z. 

Watch: Stromae "Papaoutai"

Music // Friday, July 12, 2013
In this rather fantastic video for Belgian star Stromae, a kid has a fake plastic dad and music and dance make things come alive but only for a short period.... The chorus, "Papa, où t'es?" means "Pa, where are you?" and we'd explain the rest of the lyrics to you if our French was better... The video is directed by Raf Reyntjens.  

Axel: Bloody Genius @ Art on A Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
If the moniker Bloody Genius conjures up a proper monocoled British gent, think again, and do hurry over to Art on A Gallery to see for yourself. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, consider that Axel employs his own blood (in just the right consistency) as the medium for mesmerizing intricate paintings framed in flaming gold leaf. Protégé of Salvador Dali and jeweler to Axl Rose, this Axl has authentic Papal robes in his closet and cites Lady GaGa for saving his life. Get over to 24 “A” Avenue at Second  in NYC for a little nibble of this poison apple before it closes on July 26th..
