Boris Hoppek "Spanning Erotic Space and Time"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
Boris Hoppek (born 1970, in Kreuztal) is a German contemporary artist based in Barcelona. His artistic roots lie in graffiti, but today his work spans painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation art. His work has been used in advertising campaigns as well. Hoppek's trademark is a symmetric oval, which appears in most of his work either alone or in a constellation of three, thus forming a face.

The Work of Eric Petersen

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
'My style is influenced by instructional graphics and the look of vintage comics of the 1940s. I draw uniform lines on a computer to strip away some of the human element and expressive quality seen in non-digital work. I use perspective and unnatural colors to set up a voyeuristic feeling and create an unsettling mood. I am interested in the combination of a purely functional illustration style with an emotional scene.' Eric Petersen

The Half Bottom of the Body by Liu Jin

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
"The Half Bottom of the Body" is a series of work by the participation of pedestrians on the road and by my close friends. I choose partners in different environments, explaining my ideas to them, and then we would work together, if they agreed to join. This project is still going on. The photographs interrupted their daily routines, producing amazing results and triggering novel observations, separating the thinking of ordinary life." Liu Jin

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 03, 2012
We are very excited for the highly anticipated Sam Flores solo show, Lion and the Lamb, opening at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco on 12/12/12. Because Flores' last show opened in Egypt days before a major revolution erupted on the streets of Cairo in 2011, this is the first time many people have seen a solo from the Bay Area artist.

Music Video: Flying Lotus "Tiny Tortures"

Music // Monday, December 03, 2012
Normally, an Elijah Wood starring video would not make it on our radar, but when it comes in the starring role of an awesomely bizarro music video for Flying Lotus "Tiny Tortures" (off of the sublime FlyLo 2012 album Until The Quiet Comes), we are all ears and eyes. Is it a dream? Where did that hand go? Only director David Lewandowski knows. Watch...
