The Works of Leif Podhajsky

Music // Thursday, January 03, 2013
Leif Podhajsky recently caught our attention after we saw his album cover art for his fellow Australians, Tame Impala. As an artist and creative director, his work explores themes of connectedness, the relevance of nature and the psychedelic or altered experiences of life. By using these subjects, he attempts to inspire the viewer into a realignment with themselves and their surroundings.

Text Illustrations by Terrence Payne

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
Terrence Payne’s archetypal oil pastel portraits combine narrative elements, refined organic forms, along with delicate and bold lines to suggest movement and evolution in his subject’s character. The earnest beauty ensuing from the clumsy actions of his subjects as they stumble through life in pursuit of their ideal existence inspire him. Whether or not they ever reach their prescribed potential is irrelevant to Terrence, it is the fleeting and universal experiences that happen...

Daphne Guinness for Vogue Italia by Steven Meisel

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
One of the most iconic fashion photographers of all time, Steven Meisel easily remains the one photographer with whom all the models aspire to work. He has photographed every cover of Vogue Italia since 1988. Ok, I know its supposed to be year of the snake in 2013, but I can't help but love this portrait of Daphne Guinness for Vogue Italia by Steven Meisel... another dark creature.

Stay Puft S'more by Brad Hill

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 03, 2013
Well this is just silly, and by silly we mean near genius and amazingly crafted. Brad Hill took a stab at the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in S'more form, and to us, this is a home run. Not sure if you want to eat this after, because when you make something like this, you sort of want to stare at it. And blog it. And Facebook it. Then Instagram it. Then maybe eat it after you tweet about it. That would be our order of operations.

Waone in Fort Kochi, India

Street Art // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Waone who makes up ½ of the artist collective, Intereski Kazki, is currently traveling through India and leaving some of his talented handywork behind. This piece entitled “Lost Sheep” resides on a small walking street in a neighborhood of Fort Kochi.

Masks by Bertjan Pot

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
"Although seemingly these masks tell stories, this again started out as a material experiment. I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of ??shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day."

Stability by Timofey Radya

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Stuck in the countryside of a cold Russian wilderness, a symbol of isolated/invisible power and stature, Timofey Radya is the creator of Figure #1: Stability. As Radya notes in his own description of the piece, "After the formation officers may leave the area." From what we gather, and from Radya's video, the piece is a construction of lonely power, a sort of comedic tragedy of how power is constructed when nobody is paying attention. Love the red carpet treatment.

New Roa in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Street Art // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Just because we are fresh in the new year doesn't mean Belgian-artist, ROA (although we assume he hasn't been home in about 36 months) isn't already hard at work. Our friends at Buenos Aires Street Art just reported and documented ROA's new mural piece in BA, and unlike his personality, he went for a street sloth. Here's to another year of ROA pieces popping up worldwide...

Craigslist-assisted Readymade by Adriana Ramic

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Have you ever scoured the strange and beautiful archive of free stuff on Craigslist? Free stuff in this context ranges from adorable puppies to sofas out in the snow, piles of dirt, and defunct televisions, all of which are simultaneously uplifting, sincere and full of hope for new ownership and suspect, sad, and blatantly abandoned.

Black and White Works by Kilian Eng

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
We kick of 2013 with one of our favorite artists of the moment, Swedish illustrator Kilian Eng. Featured in our magazine in the past, and on our site a bunch, we love his new series of black and white, science-fiction inspired works. Seems like Eng took some effective Moebius pills, and there is nothing wrong with that.
