Street Paintings and Public Installations By Lang-Baumann

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
The duo of Lang-Baumann, aka Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann, have been creating large-scale public works for over 20 years, and a lot of the newer work is centered on literal paintings of the street. Paint to asphalt. Recently, in Rennes, France, the duo created what you see above, a gigantic stretch of city street transformed into a full public art installation that interacts with the surrounding city. Or distracts... in a good way.

"In Orbit" TOMÁS Saraceno's Largest Installation to Date

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
  This isn't the first time we have posted the work of Tomas Saraceno. His latest, largest and most ambitious work also looks like the most fun ever. Like an adult playground! To create the mesh structure suspended 25 meters in the air, the artist worked with a team of architects, engineers and biologists (studying spiders) for over three years. The net itself weighs 3 tons and there are 6 inflated PVC spheres positioned within the mesh net. Like spiders, visitors must coordinate their activities with one another using vibration and their perception of space. Amazing.  

"Museum Anatomy" by Chadwick and Spector

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
We can't get enough of these Museum Anatomy photographs and body paintings by Chadwick and Spector. The duo has documented the works of museums around the world as recreated on the human body. The incredible process results in a final outcome that is sometimes unrecognizable as a human form.

Great Art in Ugly Rooms

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
The blog "Great Art in Ugly Rooms" is exactly that: a collection of photographs of art in a room that it probably doesn't deserve to be in (though we have to admit there are a few in here that are actually kind of nice). In the photographs, masterpieces are digitally moved from museums and galleries and juxtaposes(ha!) them in "ugly" rooms. 

The Work of Meguru Yamaguchi

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
Raised in Tokyo, Japan by fashion designer parents and at the epicenter of the city's street culture, Meguru Yamaguchi was introduced by his parents to a good amount of pop art while also immersed in Japanese Manga. He is a "Digital Impressionist," using portraits of his friends on social media as inspiration, the artist samples elements of painting, collage, acrylics, and spray paint to create colorful and dynamic works "reminiscent of Hip-Hop samplings from the 70s."

Drawings by Lyvia Alexandra

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
We really love this pigeon. We also really enjoy the rest of the London-based Lyvia Alexandra's drawings. They are light hearteded, honest, and fun.

In L.A.: Empty Distances @ Mark Moore Gallery

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
This past weekend we stopped by Mark Moore Gallery for the opening reception of “Empty Distances” a group show curated by Caryn Coleman. The group exhibition features works by James Aldridge, Darren Banks, Sean Higgins, Deborah Stratman, Alan Warburton, and a selection of episodes from "The Twilight Zone." Playing on Eugene Thacker's idea of horror as the "paradoxical thought of the unthinkable," Coleman has meticulously composed a show that illustrates the visualization and simultaneous abstraction of the unknown. Photos and more after the jump…

The Impossible Project: Juxtapoz' Brock Fetch

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 20, 2013
For lovers of analog and film, The Impossible Project was started in October 2008 just as Polaroid was ending its production of instant film. Now, 10 former Polaroid employees have taken over the task of preserving the industry of instant film production, with multiple different films and cameras still available today. Our contributing, on-the-road-photographer, Brock Fetch, has been around the United States the past few months, using the Impossible Project film and exploring the Polaroid look as he shoots some of hip-hop's biggest names: ASAP Rocky, Action Bronson, Joey Badass, Asher Roth, and others... enjoy.
