Street Art // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
In conjunction with the annual Venice Artwalk, painted on the exterior of the landmark Red Fort building built in 1922, artist Jesse Hazelip, created the following mural titled “Hearts of Oak.”  The artist’s mural depicts an oversized pig being chauffeured on chariot-like vessel by a bull, used as a metaphor for the excess and gluttony of Wall Street, and the suffering working class.

Juxtapoz @ E3: Ubisoft Press Conference

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
Ubisoft is my current frontrunner for presentation of year at E3. They came out strong with their main titles, Assassins Creed 3, Far Cry 3, and Splinter Cell, and still managed to shock us with some titles we have never heard of. They also had some of the best MC's hosting their event as well.

Video: Horfe / Crack & Shine International

Graffiti // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
It’s obvious by the amount of posts dedicated to Horfe that we are big fans and you should be by now too. This year has turned out to be a busy one for the artist, who was featured in our January 2012 printed issue. Crack and Shine International just released a video following Horfe through the streets of Paris as he shares his thoughts on his native city and the freedoms that come with being an artist.

In L.A.: Gustavo Godoy @ Honor Fraser

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
This past weekend we stopped by Honor Fraser Gallery for the opening of Gustavo Godoy’s “Vacant Mounds and Markers”. The sculptures in Vacant Mounds and Markers quietly examine spiritual spaces and secular objects. Positioned at ground level, Godoy's sculptures transform the gallery into a meditative sanctuary, addressing the physicality of space as well as the ritualistic spaces inspired by secular and sacred belief systems. Photos and more after the jump…

Photoreal Paintings by Alyssa Monks

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
We have shown you the photoreal paintings of Brooklyn-based painter Alyssa Monks in the past in our Erotica section, and today we were really enjoying her new works painted in 2012. As the years have gone on, Monks' hyperreal paintings have become more abstract, with flesh hiding behind steamed surfaces, obscuring the body and facial expressions, and figures are more in performance with their poses than in works past.

Wes Anderson Bingo

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
For the hoards of Wes Anderson fans out there who are anticipating or have recently enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom, you can now take your obsession a step further. You thought you had shown your dedication by dressing up as team Zissou for Halloween, but now you can play Wes Anderson board games. You no longer have to wait for a costume clad holiday to enjoy your own Wes Anderson experience.

The Tattoo Work of Christel Perkins

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
Great tattoo work from Christel Perkins over at Sol Tribe Tattoo in Denver, CO. She has an impressive portfolio, including a recent John Baizley half-sleeve (still in the works), a piece depicting a gorgeous Audrey Kawasaki painting, a Darwin faced monkey and a delicious winged burger and ketchup dripping fries.

Pencil Drawings by Stuart Whitton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
All you need is a pencil, and you can go far. British illustrator Stuart Whitton does fantastic works with just a pencil, using wonderful shading techniques and detailed layering to create portraits, both for personal work and commercial endeavors. We like this piece in particular, a commission by German publication Zeit Magazine to create a portrait of fashion designer, Marc Jacobs.

Ludo x Evol: The Worlds' Smallest Billboard

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
French street artist LUDO just passed along a collaboration he recently finished with German artist EVOL (who makes fantastic installations and miniature city scapes on city streets). The two artists created the "worlds' smalled billboard," a mini Ludo billboard on an EVOL stenciled city. Very tiny.
