In case you were recently perusing photos of this last Halloween and feeling nostalgic about pseudo-creepiness and absurd get-ups, there are ways to bring yourself back to that time.

The Works of Leah Yerpe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
We caught the work of Brooklyn-based Leah Yerpe on Booooooom yesterday, and then we spent a good amount of time exploring all the works she had on her site. Charcoal drawings, big and small, paintings too, Yerpe captures a fleeting, dreamlike experience of floating and flying, powerful in its simplicity.

Blu + Ericailcane in Bari, Italy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
With several collaborations in the past, artists Blu and Ericailcane once more combined efforts to create a wonderful piece on what used to be a school in Bari, Italy. The buildings collective “Socrate Occupato” is now home to around 60 immigrated refugees. The two artists worked with the themes of migration and pilgrimage. A detailed flooded city was painted by Blu, while an arc with animals seeking refuge for their crossing was painted by Ericailcane.

New Works from Smithe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
As you can probably tell, we have a mini-obsession with Mexico City-based Smithe these days. A mixture of nostalgic, vintage illustrative style and a bit of the grotesque and absurd make for a beautiful combination, and Smithe is one of the best at the moment. Here is a look at some new music posters and graphic illustrations the artist has completed recently.

Sonia and Mark Whitesnow: Regina Hair

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
The subject of this photoseries by Sonia and Mark Whitesnow looks something like a sexy Cousin It. Stark and minimal, the photos play off of which parts of the body are concealed and which ones by contrast seem even more revealed. The Whitesnows live and work in Russia. Self-proclaimed 'multifaceted artists', they use 'natural materials as well as modern technologies.'

Music Video: Tame Impala "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards"

Music // Tuesday, November 13, 2012
One of the best albums of 2013 has to be Tame Impala's Lonerism, a mix of psychedelic, experimental pop that has been playing in this writer's house for weeks now. The video for one of the album's best tracks, "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards," is exactly what it sounds like: a psychedelic collage of beautiful colors.
