Gary Baseman "The Door is Always Open" @ Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
Our friend Gary Baseman has a very special week ahead as he prepares to open The Door Is Always Open at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on April 25. This will be the former Juxtapoz featured artist, illustrator, animator, and toy designer's first ever museum survey, long overdue in our book. The survey will also feature paintings, photographs, toys, sketchbooks, and videos, presented in a "novel gallery setting that evokes Baseman’s childhood home, replete with family snapshots and furnishings." Be there.

The Public Art of Jaume Plensa

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We have been huge fans of the works of Jaume Plensa for a long time, and always like sneaking a peek at the sculpture he has up in the Crosby Street Hotel, but his public art is where its at. The artist has lived in Paris, Berlin, Brussels, England, France, USA, and Barcelona, and is best known for his works using the human figure comprised with numbers. He recently had works installed in Calgary, Alberta and Helsinki, Finland.

Illustrations by JJ Cromer

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
JJ Cromer is a self-taught artist who grew up in rural Virginia and re-discovered his love for drawing later on in life. A critical sevent-grade art teacher shut down his interest in drawing and it wasn't until he was married with degrees in history, French, and library sciences that his renewed interest became a passion.

Emile Morel's Digital Illustrations

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
This morning we take a look at the work of Lyon, France-based artist Emile Morel. His surreal, imaginary worlds linger halfway between hell and "wonderful medieval Dante, depicting primitive impulses, bestial and intimate and idyllic mythology."

Larger Than Life Space Suit Houses Fashion Show

New York-based, Polish artists Joanna Malinowska and Christian Tomaszewki created a huge larger-than-life space suit to house a fashion show. Titled, Mother Earth Sister Moon, the installation is a replica of the suit worn by the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova. The fashion show was held around and IN the space suit.

Photographs by Myoung Ho Lee

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013
We are enjoying Seoul-based photographer Myoung Ho Lee's series of color photographs, entitled Tree. Lee photographs solitary trees framed against white canvas backdrops in the middle of natural landscapes. Installing the large canvases took a production crew and heavy cranes and much of the support system was removed in post, creating the illusion that the backdrop is floating.

Matt Leines "Hyperbolic" @ Beginnings, Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Via our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America, Brooklyn based Matt Leines recently opened a solo exhibition, Hyperbolic, at Beginnings in Brooklyn. After living in Philadelphia for a few years, the artist moved to New York and settled into a rhythm that was both fresh and cheerful, or as the gallery notes: "Those who follow (Leines') work may have noticed a shift in the last few years, somebody flipped a switch in the artist’s brain–or maybe spun a dial–and all sorts of things began to happen: visible spectrum increasing, palette spinning out, subjects becoming more universal and less referential.

Music Video: Wild Nothing "A Dancing Shell" featuring works by Eric Shaw

Music // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
We have shown the psychedelic works of Eric Shaw on our site before, and when we saw this new Wild Nothing video for the track, "A Dancing Shell," we thought, this shit looks familiar? Not in the, this art is shit sort of way, but in the, hey that is fun and familiar. Sure enough, this video, directed by Hayley Akins, with animation by Hayley and Andy Williams, features the paintings of Eric Shaw. We recommend watching it at the highest HD you can do, full screen, and eat a mushroom cap. Just one. Wait, don't do that.

Real-Life Simpsons Intro (With Humans)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
We love this re-created Simpsons intro. London-based creative agency Devilfish made this real-life Simpson’s intro as a teaser for Sky One a few years ago. The timing and framing of every shot is spot-on. Watch it after the jump...
