Opening: Roid "More Than Ever" @ Topsafe, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
We are deeply disappointed that we are unable to see Roid’s debut solo exhibition “More than Ever” with Topsafe London in person. The artist’s work is a mix and is influenced by typography, design, geometry, Manga, computers, robots, music and the list goes on, with one eye catching color palette for sure. His work has been courting our attention for a while and from these pictures one could easy think the canvases were created digitally.

The Work of Sashiko Yuen, aka Wishcandy

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Wishcandy, or Sashiko Yuen is enamoured by retro culture, street fashion, kitsch, beauty, and the grotesque. At any given moment you could imagine she is mentally recording color palettes, creating, or hatching an escape plan from the suburban jungle. She graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Art + Design from Towson University and is currently building up a world of paintings and illustrations.

Adult Swim x Juxtapoz: Kevin Kirkpatrick's Bust of Carl from Aqua Teen

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
One of the best parts about teaming up with Adult Swim on our very special July 2012 issue are the collaborations that came out of the months of work. One of our favorites was Kevin Kirkpatrick's amazing bust of Carl Brutananadilewski from Aqua Teen Hunger Force (aka, Aqua Something You Know Whatever). Remember, Kevin did the amazing Beavis and Butthead busts that were all over the web earlier this year...

Surreal and Absurd History by Paco Pomet

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
The histories that Paco Pomet's paints are absurd, bizarre, surreal, and humorous. Just when you think you are looking at a simple realistic painting, you notice that the man in the background has a woman's legs and is posed a little too sexy for his early 1900's facial hair. The Grenadian artist just posted a bunch of new works that were painted in 2012, and we got a kick out of each one.

Magical Surrealism by Tomek Setowski

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
Polish painter Tomek S?towski has one amazing imagination. He is creating what he calls "magical surrealism," aka, a very inventive mind. Endless details, mythical worlds, a sort of never-ending story meets prehistoric meets 3,000 years into the future is what we are getting from the Polish artist's work.

Chris Sumer's "Bottle Cap Blues"

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
Albeit not all the beers in this video are opened in a drinkable form, it does get your imagination going. It may be more convenient to have a bottle opener on your keychain, but exploring your immediate surroundings to find ways and excuses for opening a beer sounds like a great way to spend some time, especially if you're just recently free for summer break and want unwind while still exercising your creative muscles.
