Winding Concrete Cultural Center in Norway

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
  We love this proposal for a new cultural center in Norway by the portuguese engineering and design firm Cerejeira Fontes Architects. Interpreting a lineal series of spaces, the overlapping, winding concrete form also has a cantilevering tail and forms an outdoor gathering space in its center. The roof emerges from a rock formation and doubles as seating for events and an extruded form frames views of the ocean.

'Handheld,' disturbing skin sculptures by Jessica Harrison

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
Edinburgh-based artist Jessica Harrison's collection of sculptures titled Handheld seem to be made out of real flesh, skin and hair. The sculptures are actually made by casting the palms and backs of her hands. The resulting sculptures are a collection slightly disturbing and creepy furniture that should be in a PETA anti-leather ad.

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
Mike Breach began experimenting with coffee and milk foam portraits at his job in a hotel kitchen. The portraits are quick and intricate before being consumed by the customer. He says the drawings themselves are 'kind of a joke,' but enjoys the connection with the customer and snaps a photo of each piece for his tumblr. Watch a video after the jump...

Sachin Teng's Incredible Imagination

Illustration // Sunday, April 07, 2013
Sachin Teng was one of the first artists I was entirely blown away by upon discovering back in 2009.  The style was so original and new, Sachin’s ability at imagination clearly visible.  As I followed his career his style and focus has only become more and more his own impressing me more so with every creation...
