ARYZ Mural in Lagos, Portugal

Street Art // Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Former Juxtapoz cover artist, Spanish-based ARYZ, just completed another huge mural in Lagos, Portugal. The artist was invited by ARTURb to do the mural, which features a skeleton with some camera skills. After a few international trips for ARYZ this year, including India and Austria, we love seeing a return to a multi-storied mural to kick of the European mural summer program. (That isn't a real thing, but it should be.)

The Hyperrealistic Works of Franz Gertsch

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 03, 2014
If you have followed the Juxtapoz site over the past few years, you would know that we are in a resurgence of hyperrealistic painters making fantastic work. So we might as well look at one of the great hyperrealistic painters of the past 50 years, with Swiss painter Franz Gertsch having a museum show at the Abattoirs Museum in Toulouse, France through the end of August 2014. If you remember, Gertsch had a fantastic series of paintings of Patti Smith completed in the 1970s that have been shown around the world and at Gagosian Gallery.

Roger Gastman's "Tools of Criminal Mischief" @ The Seventh Letter

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Tools of Criminal Mischief (TOCM) represents the humor and independence of the underground through the methods of misconduct and delinquency. TOCM expresses the artistic freedom of deviant behavior in a “tongue in cheek” style. The philosophy of non-conformity is an attitude rich in history and fun. The TOCM aesthetic shines a light on the irony and stigma that is often associated with a lifestyle people infatuate and romanticize. It is the method behind the brilliant and hilarious madness of the lawbreaker...

Images From Russia’s First Fashion Magazine

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 03, 2014
In addition to luxurious illustrations and advanced Constructivist models, the magazine offered an overview of current European trends, in which the Soviet control system saw “vestiges of capitalism.” The fashion magazine’s first issue was its last. If not for the excesses of Soviet censorship, Russia would now have its own Vogue and Harpers Bazaar all rolled into one.
