Lu Cong was born in Shanghai in 1978 and immigrated to the United States at the age of 11. After graduating from the University of Iowa in 2000 with degrees in biology and art, he moved to Denver, CO after deciding to pursue portrait art rather than medicine. Since 2002, Lu has been studying at the Denver Art Students League, focusing his studies on life drawing, and has exhibited his work at that arts venue for the past decade.

Surreal Steampunk Style Drawings by Samuel Gomez

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 21, 2015
New York City-based artist Samuel Gomez creates large-scale graphite and ink drawings in a surreal-steampunk style. Drafting his narratives into worlds made of highly elaborated machine-like entanglements, Gomez's pieces are incredibly detailed and look to comment on the negative effects of corporations and capitalism.

Street Art and Illustration by Fafi

Illustration // Thursday, May 21, 2015
Parisian street artist and illustrator Fafi explores femininity through stereotypes, using them to her advantage. She's done commercial illustration work and has secured toy manufacturing deals, but we love her independent work. 

The Brilliant Imagination of Tomas Saraceno

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 21, 2015
Argentine artist Tomas Saraceno has never failed to impress us over the years with his imaginative and well-executed public and interactive art installations. He doesn't just dream of floating cities and buildings, he actually attempts to create them. The man is not short of ideas, and this experimental solar dome from 2012 titled "Poetic Cosmos of the Breath" is still one of our favorites.

#LiveOutside2015 Sao Paulo: Arlin & Nove Go Big In Brazil

Street Art // Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Last year, Juxtapoz was able to follow the progress as JanSport launched their first street art and mural campaign and series, following the lives and process of artists in San Francisco and Brooklyn as they created a large scale mural in their hometown. In San Francisco, our friends Lady Mags and Amandalynn painted a huge, showstopping mural that we get to drive by all the time and is a great part of our daily commute. Now, in 2015, JanSport has brought the #LiveOutside to São Paulo, where Arlin & Nove collaborated on a color, massive mural this Spring that we were able to document.

The Works of Caris Reid

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Caris Reid currently has work up at Circuit 12 in Dallas, and we think its a good time to showcase the last few bodies of work from the Washington, DC-born artist. We are huge fans of Circuit 12, and even more so now, huge fans of Caris' work, which has a bit of vintage-portrait style mixed with the best and greatest playing cards you will ever see. Can't wait to see more in the near future...

We have posted Riga, Latvia-based photographer Misha Gordin's Crowd series before. Here is a collection of some of his other work. The images look like digital reproductions but are all "assembled and printed in a traditional darkroom."
