Kim Ji-Hoon's Illustrated Realism

Illustration // Friday, October 12, 2012
These realistic pencil renderings from an artist by the name of Kim Ji-Hoon are seriously blowing my mind right now. I don't even think my eyes are capable of seeing that much detail, let alone re-creating it. We came across some intricatley drawn illustrations of body parts (Arnold Schwarzenegger throwback), landscapes and animals from this incredible talent who chooses to remain pretty anonymous.

Pardee's Pick: The Art of Steven Daily

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
LA based painter Steven Daily's imagination runs both deep and dark. So dark, in fact, that I have always been pretty convinced that he must have sold his soul to some dark demon from his childhood in exchange for the ability to blend his paint the way he does!

Paintings by Carl Ostendarp

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
Carl Ostendarp's paintings were once described by art critic Jerry Saltz as a hypothetical collaborative art production by Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat, Jules Olitski, and Roy LIchtenstein, and we couldn't agree more. These playful paintings evoke a range of visual cues from cartoons to high art minimalism...

At just 20 years old, Paris based artist Alban Grosdider has created an amazing body of photographic work that touches upon a dark subject manner. The series, Drowning, is a project that confronts the feeling of submersion that one feels living in a big city.

Anatomical Heart Mural by Lump

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
How did we miss this? During this past summer when the Galeria Urban Forms in Lodz, Poland was happening, with great works from Os Gemeos, Aryz, Inti and others doing murals, Lump dropped this amazing anatomical heart mural that read "Time Eats Us." Solid.

Interesni Kazki in St. Ottilien, Germany

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 12, 2012
The surreal and  dreamlike imagery created from the minds of Ukrainian art duo, Intersni Kazki, continuously holds our attention and remains among our favorite of contemporary artists working in the streets. Their newest project in St. Ottilien, Germany for the Heaven Meets Earth Festival further displays the artist’s range of imagination and contains a healthy selection of bizarre symbolism.
