Animal Instinct: The Work of Joram Roukes

Illustration // Saturday, September 01, 2012
'Joram Roukes' large oil paintings are build-ups or collages of inner-city figures and characters. Blending multiple stylistic elements and references to subcultural groups or popular culture intricately in comprehensive and colorful compositions, the resulting figures try to put across a shaky view of today’s western society.'

Magazine Sculptures by David Mach

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 01, 2012
We know Scottish-based artist David Mach for his coat hanger work and matchstick sculptures (we posted them on the site before), but now we know what he does with his old magazines: he makes gallery sized sculptures with them. We just hope there is a Juxtapoz or 10 in there somewhere.

Ju's compositions are amazing and if you weren't already sold on seeing images of naked figures, Ju's artistic talents should be just enough to get you to take a peak at this great series of work.

AEC of Interesni Kazki @ Fame Festival 2012

Street Art // Friday, August 31, 2012
Another piece from the Interesni Kazki team that transports you to another time and space. AEC from the Ukrainian duo was in Grottaglie, Italy to paint this wall/building for Fame Festival 2012, but from the sound of it, this was a stressful piece. Punctured tires of the lift, stuck in the mud, and then, it didn't work. Lifts are stressful. Watch the video after the jump . . .
