"The owner of this house is a man that works a few on everything, but not really on something. Naples is something like that.”  Spanish muralist, Escif, made this unobtrusive painting blending into the scenery on the side of a home in Naples.

Sigur Rós Mystery Film Experiment: "Varúð" by Ryan McGinley

Music // Thursday, August 02, 2012
Nothing gets you feeling serene more than a girl barefoot skipping through Manhattan with sunshine golden hair while Sigur Ros' beautiful music is playing and Ryan McGinley providing the visuals. We think that pretty much covers it. From the looks of it, this is part of Sigur Ros Mystery Film Experiment, and it may be the most epic 8 minutes you spend today.

Preview: Steven Harrington "Inside Out" Exhibition @ Known Gallery + Catalog

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
There is no secret that we love the work of Southern California's Steven Harrington. We had a fantastic feature of his work in the magazine in October 2011, and now as he gets prepared to open his InsideOut exhibition at Known Gallery in two weeks, we take a look at the catalog for the show published by Nieves. 

Sundead by Luciano Podcaminsky

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
This is pretty cool. Argentina-based artist, Luciano Podcaminsky, has created the conceptual piece, Sundead, a coffin re-imagined as a tanning bed, or vice-versa. Not only are tanning beds the most bizarre creations by humans, it happens to be even weirder that people in places like Florida and California, places that get sun, go to tanning salons. Are we wrong?

Illustrations by Shan Jiang

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
We were searching for an artist with a burst of color this morning, and remembered how much we loved the work of Shanghai-based Shan Jiang when we have seen it in commercial endeavors over the years. The graphic designer, illustrator, and art director now works in London with design company Shotopop.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 02, 2012
London is getting a lot of great art at the moment, so even if you don't want to see the Olympics, the great city has plenty to offer. Take Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo's fantastic 250,000 book maze, aMAZEme, now on display at the Southbank Centre in London. Incredibly, the work, creating with the help of volunteers, is based on a fingerprint of writer Jorge Luis Borges.

Works by Megan Diddie

Illustration // Thursday, August 02, 2012
  Megan Diddie's delicately rendered pieces investigate the intimate relationship between humans and nature. Bodies interlace and intertwine with plants, insects, and one another in splendorous displays of color and texture. Diddie's works inhabit the tenuous line between life and death, growth and decay.
