Making of The Tattooed Poster

Tattoo // Monday, July 09, 2012
The Chaos Crew tattoo studio is well known in Munich and far beyond its city limits. They developed a poster that impressively shows the bavarian tattoo artists’ skills: just as tattoo motives tell countless stories, they interwove the most important events of 2011 into one huge tattoo. History was tattooed onto calfskin to promote the art of tattooing in its most authentic form – on real skin.

Paintings by Fulvio di Piazza

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 08, 2012
Back in 2010, when we first saw the work of Palmero, Italy based fine artist, Fulvio di Piazza, we knew there was something special going on. Now, di Piazza has a new solo show back at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, full of oil on canvas surreal mindwarps, based on the economic writings of Jeremy Rifkin, and his 1980 book, Entropy.

The Paintings of Korea's Kwon Kyung-yup

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 08, 2012
We love the flat, white, realistic paintings of Korean-painter, Kwon Kyung-yup. Each female painted has an isolated, frozen glance, which makes them to appear to almost be facades in a dream. The detail in which the painter uses the color white is quite stunning.

Bone Bike: Ride er Die

Tattoo // Sunday, July 08, 2012
An incredibly intricate little handmade, homemade tattoo from artist, illustrator and tattooist Aminah Slor. I love the quality of the line in this, it really looks like an illustration was directly applied to the skin. Then again, I'm totally a sucker for the illustrated line. RiderDie.

"The Four Seasons" by Philip Haas

Street Art // Saturday, July 07, 2012
Four 15-foot-high fiberglass sculptures representing the four seasons currently occupy the garden of the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London.  The sculptures were created by artist and filmmaker, Philip Hass, who was inspired by Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s Renaissance paintings of the four seasons, comprising Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.  They are creepy, peculiar, and very well done.

Illustrations by Diego Fagundes

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 07, 2012
These works by Brazilian architect / illustrator Diego Fagundes are so simple in execution, but pack a heavy punch of narrative and figurative symbolism. Like BLU, who does these kinds of works on multi-storied buildings, these works play on the idea of space and our perceptions of our own reality. It should be noted that Diego is an architect at the Federal University of Santa Catarina. He knows a little something about space.
