Moving The Still: A GIF Festival

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 19, 2012
As we are finalizing our plans for the 2012 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach, we came across something we will not be missing this year. Tumblr has announced Moving the Still: A GIF Festival, curated by online art market Paddle 8. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the GIF, and it has come a long way from tricking out your MySpace page and dancing babies.

Kofie in Turin, Italy

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 19, 2012
Los Angeles-based draftsman, Kofie, recently completed this exceptionally large mural entitled "Futurino" for the Picturin Torino Festival in Turin, Italy. Kofie’s strong line work and geometrical shapes blends naturally into the architectural landscape. Definitely one of the biggest mural we have seen him paint yet.

Taborda's Dark Mysticism

Illustration // Friday, October 19, 2012
Eduardo Taborda's mindmelting drawings are nightmarish visions founded on meticulous linework and heavy symbolism. Working primarily in black and white, Taborda shows a staggering attention to detail and a strong commitment to the gruesome in apocalyptic tableaus where dying men beg for mercy and burst into flames. Taborda is based in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Tattoos by Justin Weatherholtz

Tattoo // Friday, October 19, 2012
'Justin Weatherholtz began tattooing in 1999 in Reading, PA under Joe Johns of Wizard World. He has traveled extensively around the U.S., participating in conventions and doing guest spots. Justin decided to relocate to NY to work at Kings Avenue Tattoo in September of 2007. With an interest in the many different styles of tattooing, Justin's portfolio clearly displays his diversity from American to Japanese and everything in between.'

'My pieces are inspired by natural growth, urban architecture, technology, and music. My work tries to illuminate the balance between the natural and manufactured. They aspire to blend the innate beauty of the organic with the scientific power of industry. I incorporate design patterns seen in different cultures throughout history such as Celtic jewelry, Islamic rugs, Modern architecture, and Ancient Greek pottery...'

Preview: Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" @ House of Vans, Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 18, 2012
As we noted on the site last week, ee just had our pre-Halloween costume party with Alex Pardee this past weekend, but we think if you happen to be in Brooklyn on October 31, Dennis McNett's "HALLO-WOLFBAT" installation/performance/exhibition/party would be something you should definitely spend time at. Coming soon to the House of Vans... there will be a 22' Viking ship if you need more reasons to go.

Video: ROA's Plane for the Boneyard Project

Street Art // Thursday, October 18, 2012
Earlier this year, Juxtapoz took a trip to Tucson, Arizona to document a number of international artists painting massive disused Military airplanes and cockpits for a project entitled The Boneyard Project. A variation of eclectic styles adorned each piece of aviation and an opening reception displaying the planes was held at the Pima Art and Space Museum. ROA’s plane was painted alone much after all the events and everyone had left, surely a tranquil desert experience for the artist.
