Natalia Rak's Legend Of Giants

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Polish street artist, Natalia Rak, created this piece entitled, The Legend of Giants, a young girl in traditional Polish garb, watering a local tree.  Rak seems to have broken through a lot of trends in public art as of late, adding a clearly present feminine emotion to her work, essentially telling a story.  An exaggerated soft-tone fills the side of this 4-story building, almost as if the piece had brush strokes, not sprayed.  Which feels unfamiliar when compared to the more mechanical or deconstructed work we see today.

Syncretism by Cesar Santos

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Can you combine Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Hello Kitty? Cesar Santos can. The Cuban-American artist weaves together complex and divergent art forms into single paintings. "In a suggestive and theatrical way I seek to raise questions, to entice one to probe the imagery that I present and attempt to decipher its meaning."

'For a decade, Philadelphia photographer Zoe Strauss showed her phots once a year beneath an I-95 highway overpass in South Philadelphia.

The Work of Chitra Ganesh

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
A recipient of the 2012 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship and a scholar of literature, art semiotics, painting, and sculpture, Brooklyn-based artist Chitra Ganesh is certainly no stranger to the art world and understandably so. Her incredible installations, drawings, digital and painting-based collages look to excavate and circulate buried narratives typically excluded from official canons of history, literature, and art.

Swampy: A Video Diary

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 06, 2013
Our friend Swampy has been off the radar, something he is accustomed to doing and he does it very well. Where has he exactly been for the last year or even more? Only he knows and those who travel with him, but its probably somewhere you haven’t been. Maybe this new video he released will give some incite into his recent activities.

Banksy: "Rebel Rocket Attack"

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 06, 2013
We told you that we were going to keep the Banksy month-long "Better Out Than In" project to recaps, but the video he released today was just way too good to pass up. Titled "Rebel Rocket Attack," it definitely proves you must be careful with who you fight with...
