"Jesus! What Did You Do?": A Tale of Art Restoration Failure

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
In a recent and somewhat tragic incident, the church of Santuario de Misericordia's fresco depicting good ol' JC was radically revamped, or at least that was the initial goal of the eighty-something-year-old amateur restorer who took the project on without asking permission. A quote from culture councilor Juan Maria de Ojeda describes the fate of the 19th century wall painting aptly remarking she noticed "she had gotten out of hand" and gone on to confess to local authorities.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 28, 2012
If you ever find yourself traveling around Denmark, and get yourself to the island of Zealand, you will be surprised to see a mural by Spanish muralist, ARYZ, freshly painted on a brick building. As photographer Henrik Haven told us, "Before his piece for the Galore festival, the Spanish street artist traveled an hour away from Copenhagen to Næstved.. the piece is part of Næstved Youth School of Art and decoration project Næstved Art City."

Underwater Photography by Elena Kalis

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 28, 2012
We must be into photography this morning. We have known the work of Elena Kalis for quite some time, and we love the way she can compose both a simple underwater shot with reflections and a well-acted, well-constructed surreal storyline underwater as well. She must have some very dependable models.

Long Exposure Fireworks by David Johnson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Almost better than the real thing. Photographer David Johnson recently captured an event in Spain for the International Fireworks Show, and while there, he captured some amazing long-exposure shots of the exploding skies above him. He called them deep sea creature lookalikes. That has a good ring to it.
