Bizarre Porcelain Sculptures by Jason Briggs

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
Jason Briggs lives in rural Tennessee where he teaches part time in Nashville and spends the rest of the time in his studio creating these bizarre porcelain sculptures. Through his work, Jason is searching for a fresh perspective and trying to create objects that he's never quite seen before and "whose inherent mystery and intrigue quietly insists upon viewer interaction." In his words, "Obvious sexual references, along with an extravagant, fetish-like attention to surface, can arouse a yearning to touch as powerful as the act itself."

Paintings by David Marc Grant

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
This morning we take a look at the paintings of San Francisco-based artist David Marc Grant. David is interested in the process and problem of solving formal painting issues as well as geo-political issues. For this reason, he asks the viewer to fall in love with the consumption of brightly colored consumer objects (his paintings), "while simultaneously suggesting the dangerous consequences implicit in the act."

Sculpture by the Sea, 2013

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
Last week we posted an incredible sculpture by James Dive of the Glue Society where he compressed an entire mobile amusement park, rides, games, and prizes, into a 4m x 4m cube. This week we take a look through some of the other sculptures on view at Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark. The event features sculptural works from 64 artists from 22 countries. We are hoping that it's success means more sculpture festivals around the world!

Sand Sculpture Festival in North Somerset, England

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
There is nothing quite as much fun as playing on the beach, especially if sand castles are involved. We can attest to the fact that this enjoyment does not dissipate as we grow up and become "adults." It seems as though some "adults" have taken over the beaches of Weston in North Somerset England recently for the Sand Sculpture Festival. This year's theme was Hollywood and it resulted in some Hitchcock, Harry Potter, E.T., and Pirates of the Caribbean magic!

Motorbreath Gallery and Car Show @ Orion Music Festival, Detroit

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
It’s June and almost time for the Kustom Kulture II show in Huntington Beach next month. But there’s always time for a taste of Kulture, and it got served and fired up in Detroit this past weekend. The Motor City was the logical place to launch Summer, so Vans teamed up with Metallica for the Orion music festival which was a motor cross in the most literal sense: skating, cars, music and art all Live, captured in these photos from Rhino.

"Ectoplasm" illustrations by Liqen

Street Art // Monday, June 10, 2013
Liqen’s been working on a series of experimental illustrations he calls ““Ectoplasma” and describes this body of work and process as“learning with the morphology, volumes and inks, with its lights and shadows.”  These bizarre organic shapes with subtle color he is creating are strangely alluring and we can’t wait to see where this is going to lead.
