Watch: CMYK by Marv Newland

Design // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Created by Marv Newland, this short animation is a dizzying observance of sound, color and movement. Newland has collected multitudes of CMYK symbols, moiré patterns, and registration marks, all pulled from cereal boxes and other common printed materials.

Illustration // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Sheryo is a Brooklyn based artist from Singapore who paints imperfect gnarly characters that are calming to disoriented souls, and might cause skitter skatter explosions in the brain. She has exhibited and painted in LA, Seoul, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Mexico, Australia and Vietnam since 2008. This collection of her monochrome drawings give a good example of the wild, urban imagery Sheryo has been pumping out in her street work. 

Wrinkled Paintings by Stefania Fersini

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Creating an interesting wrinkled, crumpled paper effect while using oil on canvas, Stefania Fersini recreates photoreal fashion magazine portraits as a comment on excess and waste. "I’m fed up of going fast, tired of the excesses and superficiality. I need to paint to slow down. I take time off, to meditate, to fast from what is too much. To contemplate beauty, where there is some. I copy because the solution to excess is not to create 'new'."

Collage Works from Javier Pinon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
'My work has had a tendency to be a bit autobiographical. Not literally, but under the surface. My reality or state of mind at the time that the collages are made is reflected in the psychology of the work and the stories it tells. For example, the Minotaur was at one time an important personal symbol.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 08, 2014
