Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 11, 2012
A great collection of digital and illustrative works from Zach Montoya, who just recently graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art in Illustration.

When we wrote about him earlier this year, we knew he had an interest in the imaginary and aged cheddar.

INSA x Stanley Donwood x Atoms For Peace

Music // Monday, December 10, 2012
Hollywood Dooom is a captivating collaborative artwork by Stanley Donwood and INSA that XL Recordscommissioned to celebrate the launch of Atoms For Peace's debut album, AMOK. Longtime Radiohead and Thom Yorke collaborator, Donwood, created the artwork for the Atoms For Peace album, a scene of armageddon in modern Los Angeles.

Opening: Vhils "Devoid" @ Lazarides Rathbone, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 10, 2012
One of our favorite contemporary artists, Vhils, just opened a new exhibition, Devoid, at Lazarides' Rathbone space in London. The work focuses on the "individual in relation to the overpowering force of urban environments. Working with the city as the prime material, Vhils has used what the urban environment offers in its most derelict spaces as both a location and as a source for materials from wood scraps to rusty metal, discarded billboards and other debris produced by its inhabitants."

Depth Mapping Paintings by Kazuki Takamatsu

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 10, 2012
We have written about artist Kazuki Takamatsu on the site before, but seeing the work in person at the Scope Fair in Miami, it was some of our favorite pieces we have seen in quite some time. He creates stunning images of what might best be described as semi-erotic, childish Lolita girls in a dreamlike 3-dimensional fantasy haze.
