A 170-foot Trampoline in a Russian Forest

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012
Somebody had the genius idea to put a 170-foot trampoline in a Russian forest, and we think they should be given a Nobel Prize for Peace. Design firm Salto created the installation, Fast Track, as part of the Archstoyanie festival in Nikola-Lenivets, Russia. Again, genius. This type of innovation stops wars.

James Jean's Mural @ Lane Crawford, Hong Kong

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012
We wrote on the site back in October about James Jean launching his OVM line of jewellery at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, and he just posted on his site about the mural he painted in conjunction with the launch. The 80" piece was created with Velum. Graphite, Ink, and Digital, and of course, is pretty damn epic in the James Jean style.

Takashi Murakami "Flowers & Skulls" @ Gagosian Gallery, Hong Kong

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012
This is one we wish we could head to Hong Kong for, Takashi Murakami's first show in Hong Kong at Gagosian Gallery. This exhibition explores one of the central dichotomies of his art—between joy and terror, his optimistic magnanimity as an artist and his pessimistic perspective on postwar Japan. It opens/opened tonight, November 29, in Hong Kong.

Skin Flicker by Bela Borsodi

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012
We have noted this work before, but taking another look, we wanted to revisit it. Bela Borsodi was born in Vienna 1966. After studying graphic design and fine art he started to work as a photographer. In 1992, Bela moved to New York and in 1999 he focused on still life photography, which is still the main direction of his work. Bela lives and works in New York.

The Works of Marina Muun

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 29, 2012
Marina Muun is a Bulgarian artist currently working in the UK. Each of her paintings--often colorfully patterned body-landscape hybrids--"attempt to capture and convey a feeling, a thought or a daydream and infuse them with a sense of the fantastical and a love for detail. Her paintings have a deliberate naive feel although that may not all be true for the subject itself."

Art Basel Miami 2012: Where To Go and What To See

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Oh the madness that is trying to get a cab in South Beach at 9PM during Art Basel Miami. We are not going to complain, because there are a lot worse things to do then head to warmth during the cold early December days, but you either go with a gameplan or let the tides take you from place to place. We actually try and accomplish both waves of energy, and we are here to let you know a few fairs to hit up, and perhaps a sandwich shop to dine at. Let us guide you...

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Coinciding with his exhibition at Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto, the gallery has just released a new Geoff McFetridge print, "Chopping Stripes." We have made no secret that we love the new works from the LA-based McFetridge, and were impressed with his show at Ivory & Black in London this past Fall, and the works at Cooper Cole this month are again quite stunning. This print could make a wonderful holiday gift, hint, hint...

One of our all-time favorites, and 2x cover artist, Brooklyn-based Swoon, just started a print website, Swoon in Print, where she will be releasing limited-run prints. As the site mentions, better than we can break it down, "Swoon in Print is a resource for small, hand crafted, unique variant print editions by the artist Swoon."
