Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Using colored tape as their medium, for their latest project Elite Deviance Brad Kuhl and Monique Leyton explored disgraced millionaires and the super-rich of the United States.

Paper Sculptures by Matt Shlian

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
As an artist working with paper and an engineer, Matt Shlian's work is rooted in print media, book arts and commercial design. He uses his engineering skills to create kinetic sculptures which lead to collaborations with scientists. Working on the nanoscale, Matt translates paper structures to micro folds. Beginning with a system of folding, the artists finds that at a particular moment the material takes over.

Digital Art by Zeitguised

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Established by American sculptor and fashion designer Jamie Raap and German architet Henrik Maule, ZEITGUISED pushes their own rules onto computer aided by art by creating a dense universe parallel to motion graphics, drawing heavily from fashion photography, sculpture, installation and architectural set design. In the twisted worlds of ZEITGUISED, surface phenomena are the content and unstable structures of color, shape and spatial motion become narrative and protagonist at the same time.

Paintings by Luiz Zerbini

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Rio de Janeiro based artist Luiz Zerbini's work combines a myriad of sources, borrowing from the cityscapes of Rio, art history, and pop culture. Everything is dislocated in his work: the landscape loses its depth, and the grid gains it.

Illustrations by Aurel Schmidt

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 30, 2013
We are thoroughly enjoying the illustrations of Aurel Schmidt this morning. Her intricately detailed drawings include objects and creatures such as flies, condoms, and cigarette butts that are pieced together to form larger figures. One such figure, the FlexMaster 3000 is a portrait of the Minotaur, the half-man, half-bull mythic creature who represents both creation and destruction.  

In L.A.: Richard Colman @ New Image Art

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 29, 2013
A few weekends back, we stopped by New Image Art to check out Richard Colman’s latest solo exhibition “Gone Tomorrow.” As always, Colman's work was a beautiful collection that addresses some of the darker subject matter of life, but done so with a brightness and abstraction that always grows and is perfected with each body of work. Photos and more after the jump..

Preview: Christine Wu “Come Home” @ La Luz de Jesus, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Looking forward to checking out the new body of work from Juxtapoz favorite Christine Wu when she opens Come Home at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles on November 1, 2013. Her dreamy, surreal, and often erotic paintings have captured our attention over the past year, and as La Luz de Jesus notes, "Stylistically, her work is multi-layered, with haunting and sexual undertones. She often depicts people in flux, capturing the vulnerability of self discovery and the lingering ghosts of memories best left to the past."
