Traffic Light Series by Lucas Zimmermann

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 20, 2014
Ah, to be 20 years old with really good ideas and execution. Wish we could say that was us, but then we see works like this from Landau and Weimar, Germany-based photographer Lucas Zimmermann, and we know we were still amateur at that age. All these shots were taken of traffic lights in the fog near Weimar, Germany.

"The Tearpot" by Johnson Tsang

Tsang currently is showing at the Taipei Yingge Ceramics Museum through Sunday, January 19th, if you happen to be in Taiwan.

The surreal landscape of Lapland, Finland documented by Niccolo Bonfadini

Street Art // Friday, January 17, 2014
Lapland, Finland just moved to the top of our list for places to visit in the near future. Not only because these photos by Italy-based photographer, Niccoló Bonfadini, made are jaw instantly drop and we want to see this in person, but also because you can witness the aurora borealis as well in Lapland. Two unique one-of-a-kind experiences wrapped in one location. We’re there!  Now this isn’t street art, but this is “natural art” in an outside setting and we are sharing it because street art news is slow today. These trees remind of the underground creatures from the movie Tremors or the ones from Beetlejuice, but with a puffy cloud encasing on them. Amazing.
