More Work From Erik Mark Sandberg

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
We posted the vibrantly freakish hairy paintings of Erik Sandberg a few months ago. This morning we take a look at some of Erik's other work including his Bouquets With Various Foods series, which we are again, thoroughly enjoying. Erick received his BFA from Art Center College of Design and has since taught there, OTIS and CSU Northridge.

Video: Robert Hodgin's "Boil Up" Installation @ the Auckland War Memorial Museum

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
As part of an installation at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Brooklyn-based artist Robert Hodgin recently was contracted to animate and render a feeding frenzy of fish for the interactive Moana - My Ocean exhibit. The phenomenon, called a "boil up" is an amazing twisting, spinning, hectic mass of predators and pray feeding on each other and plankton. The installation will surround visitors in the "boil up" as the schools of fish swarm about them. Awesome.

The 'Sandwich Book' by Pawel Piotrowski

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
We like sandwiches a lot. We thought our love of sandwiches was unmatched. Then we saw the genius of the 'Sandwich Book' by Polish photographer, illustrator and graphic designer Pawel Piotrowski. We are hoping he continues his project and creates a whole menu of 'Sandwich Books...' Very rarely does art make us hungry.

A Look at... Vania Zouravliov

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Featured in our August 2013 issue, Russia-born, UK-based artist Vania Zouravliov. Straight from the magazine: "Vania Zouravliov is an enigma, a paradox, and a Catch-22; he doesn’t want to have his picture taken, creates elegant art that appears to be in the process of a magically disappearing, and references 19th Century European and American storytellers as inspiration. In the legacy of previous eras, where prodigious talent was nurtured in the arts like young math and science geniuses are cultivated today, Vania became an internationally known illustrator at the age of 13.

Phil Frost "The Solace of the Sword" @ Ace Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
One of our all-time favorite cover artists, and let's face it, simply one of our favorite artists, NY-based Phil Frost, is about to open a new solo show, The Solace of the Sword, at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles on July 20th. Actually, we can't quite tell if it is open yet, because there are a ton of installation shots roaming around the web, but make sure to stop by from now until... September 2013 to see some of Frost's spectacular works. 

Kaws Reimagines Iconic MTV Video Music Awards' Moonman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Kaws is no stranger to embedding himself in popular culture, albeit through his own lens and artistic style. The NYC-based artist has seen his work in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, on Kanye West albums, and other fashion house identities. Recently, the artist was tasked with the project to reimagine the iconic MTV Moonman statue, given out to winners at the Video Music Awards. Seeing that the MTV VMA's used to be the standard bearer of all things Generation X, or Y, or whatever, where you got to see Nirvana call out Guns N' Roses while the adults watched Phil Collins take home another Grammy, we think this is a great project to take on. 

Paintings by Nathalie du Pasquier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Nathalie du Pasquier's still life pantings depict interior spaces with a repetition of forms and a flattened three-dimensionality that reminds us simultaneously of the still life paintings of Giorgio Morandi with attention to composition and compressed space as well as the early works of Lucian Freud with distorted perspective and obsessive attention to detail responding to a perception of what it is to see the object in the real. 

Edward Steichen's "The Family of Man" To Go Back on Show in Luxembourg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Edward Steichen's post-war 1955 exhibition "The Family of Man" was seen by more than 10 million people and changed the world of photography. Steichen gathered 503 photographs from 273 different photographers around the world at a time when a lot people didn't have access to TVs or magazines. "It was like seeing the world for the first time." Now the exhibition will go back on show in a castle in Luxembourg after nearly three years of renovation.
