Philippe Baudelocque chalks Magnum Photo’s Paris office

Street Art // Sunday, January 27, 2013
We often post the chalk work of Paris-based artist, Philippe Baudelocque whenever we see something new pop up. His complex designs and patterns used to creat an array of different animals are some of the most interesting work we have seen created with chalk as the medium. The distinguished photography agency, Magnum Photo, had the artist draw this guerilla on the exterior of their Paris office.

Sascha Braunig's current solo show at Foxy Productions in New York will be on view until February 9th.

Mad Men Season 6 Starts April 7, and...

Juxtapoz // Saturday, January 26, 2013
... We want to take this opportunity to mention that we should cherish the art direction and creative promotion that this show has given the world over the past half decade. Even if you don't watch Mad Men, and could care less, there aren't many television shows that have ever paid attention to the details of marketing and stylzing itself to an audience. This is an art project. Look at these promo shots for Season 6, which begins on April 7, 2013 on AMC? Well. Done.
