Graffiti // Saturday, May 18, 2013
It’s not often we see any new pieces from Gorey, but when they pop up it was well worth the wait. These particular letters may have their own circuit board and fiber optic cables to keep the funk operating.

Joe Murtagh: Deathly Sexy

Erotica // Saturday, May 18, 2013
Joe Murtagh's work is dangerous, vibrant and sexy. The Liverpool-based illustrator combines the chic and retro with death, war and decay, casting heavy symbols in a brilliant and almost sickly colorful light. Murtagh takes skull and bones to another level, imbuing them with a bold and sexy attitude. Murtagh wields his craft with the deft hand of a graphic-designer-turned-illustrator, creating unique pieces we're very proud to show in our erotica section.

Music // Friday, May 17, 2013
San Francisco-based graphic artist Scott Hansen goes by the name ISO50 when he works on his photography and design works. And much of it has the look of this video.

Photographs by Ren Hang

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 17, 2013
Beijing-based photographer Ren Hang's images are uncensored, erotic, dirty, raw, somewhat deranged... you get the point. His work is censored in China but he has a growling list of international shows. He's pretty badass and doesn't seem to have a limit, and the images we chose are even toned down a bit compared to some of the others on his website which you should check out. They cast light on an otherwise shadowy Chinese underground youth culture, where lust and indulgence run as rampant as anywhere else in the world

Underwater Photographs by Hengki Koentjoro

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 17, 2013
Indonesian photographer Hengki Koentjoro has been hooked on taking photos since he received a pocket camera for his birthday when he was a kid. He went on to study at the Brooks Institute of Photography and heavily influenced by Ansel Adams, Hengki went on to document the oceans surrounding Indonesia’s 13,000 islands in a dark, mysterious black and white. He says, "With the Zone System by Ansel Adams, you are in the practice of seeing things around you in monochrome or learning to see in black and white."
