Together, Yet Apart by Milan Hrnjazovic

Erotica // Monday, May 27, 2013
In this series entitled "Together, yet apart," Serbian painter Milan Hrnjazovic explores a young couple's intimacy through distortions and scattered parts of their bodies, creating new, recognizable shapes, such as an egg or a silhouette of an embryo, that symbolize the procreative function of the sexual act. In addition to the bodies' gestural meanings, their twisted forms suggest  the kind of turbulent yet passionate relationship that has the potential to engender just as much profound happiness as it can bitter misery.

Once again appreciating... Moebius

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 27, 2013
Moebius is one-of-a-kind, a master that influenced some many artists that we cover on our site, and when we see works of his, we always feel compelled to share. When the world lost French artists, cartoonist, comic art, writer and concept artist Moebius (aka Jean Giraud) last year, it allowed for us all to reflect just how fantastic his body of work really was and continues to be...

Surreal Sculptures by Troy Coulterman

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 27, 2013
This morning we take a look at the sculptures of Sascatchawan-based artist Troy Coulterman. Sometimes we wonder how we could visually represent the nightmarish hallucinations we get in our sleep after accidentally eating old sweaty cheese...but we rarely come up with a solution. Troy embraces these absurd anomalies in his sculptures and translates "them into tangible moments that manage to be even more absurd than from which they came."

Laser-cut Gothic Sculptures by Wim Delvoye

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 27, 2013
The last time we posted the work of Wim Delvoye he had intricately carved car tires. This time he is taken to laser-cutting decorative architectural structures in a Gothic style. A Gothic dump druck? We like it. Some of his works act as clean, smaller models for larger sculptural installations made from heavy and untreated steal that takes on a rusted, "aged" look.

THE PAINTED DESERT PROJECT: EVER

Street Art // Sunday, May 26, 2013
Organized by artists, Yote and Jetsonorama, The Painted Desert Project invited several artists to visit the Navajo country region of Northern Nevada to meet local residents and create murals. Learning of local customs, history, and tradition, the work created here references much of the culture specific to this area. The most recent contribution to this project came from Ever, who painted a merchant stand with two different, highly colorful pieces. 

Video and short inteview: Score & Moar in Rio de Janeiro

Graffiti // Sunday, May 26, 2013
We recognized Score had talents for spraying his name on walls, but this video of a recent trip of his to Rio De Janeiro displays his ability to create an entertaining video that documents his travel experiences.  This is certainly not like the majority of graffiti videos being made currently. Set to a thoughtfully chosen soundtrack, this should be motivation to go visit Rio or bet yet, South America as a whole.
