Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 13, 2014
We cannot stop looking at these tiny beautiful crayon sculptures by Diem Chau, a true storyteller. Chau creates delicate vignettes, resulting in work that combines sensibility and minimalism.

1972 Rothschild Illuminati Ball

Photography // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
In December of 1972, Marie-Hélène de Rothschild threw a “Surrealist Ball”at the Château de Ferrières, one of the large mansions owned by her family. The invitations were written backwards, forcing the guests to use the assistance of a mirror to read them. The attire required was “black tie, long dresses and surrealists heads.” Upon arrival, the facade of the chateau was lit in red with the effect of making it appear to be on fire. 

Saner @ Cross Street Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
For the past few years, especially if you have followed our blog, you have known that Mexico City based Saner has become a wanderer of the world. He has been across the globe, both exhibiting art and working on public art projects, all of them noteworthy and pretty great. A few days ago, the artist made his way to New Zealand, a place he hasn't been before but was invited by Cross Street Gallery in Auckland, New Zealand to show work and work on a mural. Today, we have look at some of the drawings on wood that were shown. 

Made from Wood: The Sculptures of Yoshitoshi Kanemaki

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
These are kind of creepy don't you think? Like, if you walked into a friend's house and saw these heads, cut from wood, sitting on their mantle, you may have a few questions. Then again, people who get those weird Harry and the Hendersons bigfoot statues on the side of the road in Humboldt County are a little weird, too. We prefer the creativity of Japanese-based sculptor and woodworker, Yoshitoshi Kanemaki. 

Asgar/Gabriel "Armed with fever and good health" @ Torrance Art Museum

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
The Austrians are coming to Torrance. We have always been huge fans of the duo, following their careers and watching them as they have explored different mediums and approaches to what we always felt was a love for psychedelia and counter-culture activities. Now, Asgar/Gabriel will open "Armed with Fever and Good Health" at the Torrance Art Museum on March 29, 2014. 

The Paintings of Marefumi Komura

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
We just felt like taking another look at the fantastic paintings of Japan's Marefumi Komura, both grotesque and engrossing at the same time. Maybe its just me, but does it look like these subjects are totally at peace with the destruction that is going on within them? 

We Are In Friend Love With Yumi Sakugawa

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 12, 2014
“What’s friend-love? It’s that super-awesome bond you share with someone who makes you happy every time you text each other, or meet up for an epic outing. It’s not love-love. You don’t want to swap saliva; you want to swap favorite books. But it’s just as intense and just as amazing.”
