"Deformations" by Lee Griggs

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 08, 2015
Using the software Arnold, Lee Griggs created facial blockheads and bubbleheads for his new project Deformations. Taking normal faces and digitally transforming them into some of the most bizarre and interestingly disturbed faces we’ve seen in a long while, Griggs never knows what he’ll get.

After graduating from Art College, Beyhum embarked on a career in advertising career, eventually becoming Art Director for multinational advertising agencies around the world.

Street Art // Friday, May 08, 2015
Mexican artist Curiot finished a mural in Perth, Australia. The artist was invited by PUBLIC Art Festival and the murals features some local fauna and a monochromatic palett. It's good to see how Curiot didn't used his typical style, looking for new ways to connect with the people.


Graffiti // Thursday, May 07, 2015
How we made it to the Tahitian paradise for a second time is still a mystery. Of all the events we attend through the year, none are quite like the Ono’u Tahiti Graffiti Festival. We say this based on how tropical and remote the location is, and also because the event focuses almost entirely on graffiti which is rare.

In his downtime, when he’s not traveling around or living out of his van, Matt Reamer can be found residing in San Francisco. The Baltimore-born photographer has been keeping himself busy working on a number of projects over the years with our favorite being his Scraper Bikes series. 


Music // Thursday, May 07, 2015
Last Friday night, our Juxtapoz editor was one of the few lucky people to get into the very special (and free) Blur concert at the Music Hall of Williamsburg as part of Converse Rubber Tracks. The show, which was brilliant, fun, and loose, featured the band playing almost the entirety of their new LP, The Magic Whip, with a few classics in the encore. Today, we have an exclusive of the new tracks, "Lonesome Street," "New World Towers," "Ghost Ship," and the encore of "Song 2" for you to watch today. Enjoy! (And today, Thursday, May 7, we have added a special interview, the new track "Go Out," and a classic from Parklife, "Trouble in the Messenger Centre.")

Dafy Hagai: Summer

Photography // Thursday, May 07, 2015
We have been big fans of Dafy Hagai on this site, and her Israeli Girls book was a hit on the site last year. Of course, she has shot campaigns for Levi's, Sam Snider, and even shot Joey Badass, too. We are getting into the summer months, and we wanted to get a look at Dafy's "Summer" zine. You should, too. Freedom never looked so good. And buy the zine while you are at it.
