The History of the Michelin Man

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 18, 2013
We are fascinated by these old Michelin ads featuring the well known 'Michelin Man.' The iconic character dates back to 1894 and was created by Andre Michelin himself after noticing an evocatively-shaped pile of tires. Take a look through these old posters and video featuring the Michelin Man through the ages and in different continents.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 18, 2013
This morning we take a look at the work of South Korean artist Kim Shin Hye (aka SSIN). SSIN is a graduate of Hong-lk University in Seoul and creates incredibly elaborate and detailed pieces often resembling maps and topography. Many of her paintings use gold pigment and Korean ink on Korean paper. We love the textures and patterns!

Juxtapoz @ Nike "Nature Amplified" Design and Innovation Summit

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Yesterday, at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Juxtapoz was invited to attend both a design and innovation summit based around Nike's new campaign, "Nature Amplified," and two new running shoe releases that will challenge and invigorate the notion of the running shoe. Nike, at its core, has always been about running, and we got to test out both the Nike Free Flyknit and Free Hyperfeel. But even better, we got to experience some pretty amazing visual presentations and installation showcases of both art and shoe, design and progression of technologies. 

Fuzi paints a large Warsaw Mermaid

Graffiti // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Depicted in his own “Ignorant Style,” Parisian graffiti writer and tattoo artist, Fuzi just completed painting a large monochrome image of a Mermaid on the side of a four-story apartment building in Warsaw. The Warsaw Mermaid (There were actually two) is a local legend in this region and is memorialized as a statue in the Old Town Square, however Fuzi’s version appears distinctly different (Locs and eyeballs on the breasts).

With works of painting, drawing, sculpture and photography, artists in this show explore the relationship of literature and print media to the realm of fine arts, or perhaps the slippages of meaning and experience between the act of reading and that of looking.

Naufrage au Louvre, or "Shipwreck at the Louvre" by Etienne Molinier

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
In this charming animated short entitled "Naufrage au Louvre" ( or "Shipwreck at the Louvre") by Etienne Molinier, the flesh eating characters of The Raft of the Medusa literally spill out of the frame into the museum and hungrily pursue a museum guard. While some people may at times attack paintings in museums, the paintings rarely (if ever) attack visitors and museum employees. This animation being one of the few exceptions.
