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.

The Works of Shanghai's Mojo Wang

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Our favorite pieces from the Shanghai, China-based Mojo Wang are the ones that do not feature faces. His newest work, People Mountain, People Se, feature grayscaled characters, no faces, saluting and communicating in unison. Maybe the theme of anonymity will carry us through 2013?

ROIDS Keeps Going...

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 02, 2013
In the piecing department, Roids dropped some of the most memorable this year. This recent one to finish 2012 off reinforces that statement.

Escif: Panopticon

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 01, 2013
The panopticon is a type of institutional building designed to allow a watchman to observe inmates of an institution without them being able to tell whether or not they are being watched. The architect for this design was Jeremy Bentham who described the panopticon as "a new mode of obtaining power of mind over mind, in a quantity hitherto without example."

The Works of Lori Pratico

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 01, 2013
"Through my artwork, I attempt to modernize the idea of “portraiture” Whether it be my subject or the style of my portraits, my goal is to create work that is both relevant and engaging. Being self taught there are no rules in my artwork. I create what to me, looks good. I experiment with different materials and resources and my only concern is the result, not the method I used to get there." Lori Pratico
