ARYZ for Vilnius Street Art Festival‏‎, Lithuania

Street Art // Friday, September 19, 2014
We just got some shots from our friend Henrik Haven of ARYZ (January 2013 cover artist) working on a mural for the Vilnius Street Art Festival‏‎ in Lithuania. From the festival, "Aryz has incorporated Lithuanian words “Kaip Ne Žmogus”, meaning, 'not like human' into his mural. The phrase was written by the local graffiti artist on the wall before it was buffed by the council few years ago. Beautiful reference completing the concept of the mural as well as earning him a wide respect in Vilnius graffiti scene."

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 19, 2014
NYC-based, Pennsylvania born Brad Kunkle's highly detailed works are definitely stunning. He captures women, sometimes sleeping, sometimes as if captured in a dream sequence, amongst piles of leaves, surrounded by nature, sometimes with hyperreal quality and other times more abstract and fleeting.

Mass confusion was the status quo. In 1970, the Standards Manual changed everything. In 2012, 42 years after the Standards Manual was released a rare copy was discovered in the basement of design firm Pentagram. The manual was found in a locker beneath old gym clothes.

SFMoMA on the Go: Fertile Ground @ Oakland Museum of California

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 18, 2014
The San Francisco Bay Area has been without its modern art institution for a couple of years now, as the physical space that is the SFMOMA has been closed for an addition to its existing building. The benefits of the closure has been spread out across various spaces around the SF area, whether at the Cantor at Stanford, the Wattis in SF, or even the Asian Art Museum here in the City as well. All the shows have been strong in their own way, but the newest SFMOMA On the Go exhibition, "Fertile Ground," brings together SFMOMA and the Oakland Museum of California for a theme that makes perfect: Art made in the SF Bay Area.
