South African-born artist Marlene Steyn is a student at the Royal College of Art in London where she is working towards a degree in Painting. We are really enjoying the fantastical, patchwork of oddly comosted faces and worlds that she depicts in her work.  

Stuff We Like: FREITAG'S HAZZARD BAG

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 25, 2013
Every Freitag “Hazzard” bag has a distinct life of its own before ever making its way onto your back. Each bag is typically on the road almost fi ve years before being crafted from recycled truck tarps, with individual design infl uenced by the colors, writing or markings of the tarps. Hand cut in Zurich Switzerland, the Hazzard also uses recycled seat belts as the shoulder straps, meaning every single bag that comes out of the Freitag factory is 100% unique. The pack is perfect for daily use, from storing sketchbooks and electronics, up to a 17” laptop, while also featuring a dry compartment in the front of the bag.

Scott Greenwalt's Alternate Universe

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 25, 2013
We have shown you the work of Scott Greenwalt on the site before, but seeing that he is in our new book title, Juxtapoz New Contemporary, we wanted to reshine a light on the Oakland, Ca-based artist. "My paintings are really about capturing a moment," he says, "or a composite of several moments, wherein the subject undergoes a massive physical change."

Tilda Swinton is sleeping on the job, literally, @ MoMA, NYC

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 25, 2013
Have you ever had the sensation, while sleeping, that someone is staring at you? And then you wake up and its your significant other/cat/child just peeing at your eyeballs while you are just trying to get some comofortable shut-eye? Yeah, its psychotic. But apparently for Tilda Swinton, who has made a name for herself for being an oddball in a sea of people trying to be oddballs (meaning she is a better oddball then say, Anne Hathaway), she doesn't mind sleeping in front of learing eyes.  She is sleeping in front of people at MoMA in a special, randomly timed, performance piece... 

Animation: "Homemade Horse" by Mel Kadel & Jim Dirschberger

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 25, 2013
"You can use bed sheets to make a fort, or in this case, make them into a horse that will take you on an adventure." That is how Homemade Horse is described. We are just excited to see Mel Kadel's work in animated form, done with the tender editing and animating skills of Jim Dirschberger. Those words you will hear are from the pen of Andreas Trolf. Watch after the jump...
