The Work of Chris Silver

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 07, 2012
'I found that soft wax was a wonderful way to blend tones, it softens the work and has a vague quality about it. Start off by working with pencils, spill your tea over it, wait for it to dry then work into it with soft wax. Scratching into the wax creates highlights, which you will be able to see on some parts of the hair. Wax is really fun but so messy so be prepared...'

The Naked Ant Farm

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 07, 2012
If you've ever dreamed of what an ant farm would look like if all of the ants were replaced with fully nude (with the exception of some socks) human beings, David Peterman is here to answer your prayers. He asked 100 people to populate the ant farm to create this piece and displayed the finished Ant Farm at the Seattle Erotic Art Fest in June of 2012.  If the Ant Farm had been printed full size, it would be a structure 30 ft. high and 40 ft. wide- thats a lot of naked little ants.

Photography by Magdalena Wosinska

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 07, 2012
The work of Magdalena Wosinska is portrayed in a the same manner of a visual diary, adventurous and full of life. 'She is shooting everything from stunning nudes in barren Icelandic landscapes to the gritty fringes of the Californian skate and metal scenes. Her photos capture an incredible vibrance – a kind of seventies revival – young, bare and overwhelmingly, alive.'

Baervon Pappe: THE STREETS OF BERLIN

Illustration // Thursday, December 06, 2012
Baervon Pappe is an illustrator with a goal in mind, to explore every street in Berlin and document her findings via adorable collaged drawings, renderings and illustrations. Often times this creative output reflects direct representations of buildings and monuments, while other times its the smaller things that catch her eye, like that little squirrel she saw.

Ed Savage's Comics

Illustration // Thursday, December 06, 2012
The comics of Ed Savage seem to start out mundane and innocent, but somehow, unexpectedly, always end in a bloodbath of fantastical pain and gore. I'm not sure what this all means but I kind of like it. Perfectly fitting for an artist with the last name of Savage- well done Ed. Be sure to check out the rest of his illustration portfolio as well- full of treasures.

Art Basel 2012: A Walk Through the Main Fair

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 06, 2012
Yesterday morning, Juxtapoz attended the press preview and brunch to honor the opening of the grand ol' fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, the reason why many fairs have grown around Miami during the first week of December. Housing some of the most established galleries in the world (Lisson, Gagosian, Marlborough to name a few), we tried to make our experience the same as we do each year. Just get lost in it all...

The Works of Sweden's Omid Delafrouz

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 06, 2012
One of the major highlights of Art Basel so far was seeing the work of Tehran-born, Gothenburg, Sweden based fine artist, Omid Delafrouz. With two large-scale works and two studies displayed in the Andréhn-Schiptjenko booth at Art Basel Miami Beach, Delafrouz had a sense of youthful humor and nostalgia quite rare to see in the large fair.
