Mika Nitta

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 06, 2012
Amazing illustrative work by the Japanese artist Mika Nitta that I know nothing about. However, with this kind of intricacy, attention to detail and the solid composition and palette that she portrays in her work, all you need to know is that it speaks for itself. Beautiful new find, keep it up young one.

We make no quality guarantees for the content of their canisters but if we were to judge a book by it's cover, these would be great "reads."

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Love these surreal photography of Canadian artist, Joel Robinson, where he has plants and trees emerging from the veins of an anonymous human arm. A great attention to detail, as well as a concept of human's connection to nature and the Earth, Robinson doesn't go overboard with effects. Just an organic style and simple approach.
