Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Copenhagen-based artist Carl Krull creates often large-scale works using repeated horizontal lines, curving and bending them at certain points to create a final, wavy and distorted image. Carl has also developed a technique using a tube wrapped in paper to create his drawings in a moving car! Watch a video after the jump...

Hyper-realistic Oil Paintings by Francois Chartier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Realism has always been of tremendous interest to Montreal-based artist Francois Chartier. While his paintings are realistic, his 'goal is to create, through layering of mediums and the play of the brush, the illusion of depth and sense of presence beyond what is found in photographs."

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
To celebrate the 80th birthday of King Kong, Dark City Gallery teamed up with La Boca for a series of prints focusing on 'what is essentially a classic story of forbidden love, rather than the misunderstood ferociousness often attributed to our hero.'

Honda Project Drive-In: Saving A Piece of Artistic Heritage

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
For years, Juxtapoz favorites Robert Williams, Eric White, Von Dutch, and Big Daddy Roth have depicted their love of car culture and cinema with a sense of nostalgia and pride. There have even been a few Drive Ins sneaking their way into the works. Sadly, if you live in America, that slice of history is leaving us, as many Drive-In theaters are vanishing across the US due to high costs. Pretty cool then that Honda has a new campaign to help save this slice of cinematic history. See how @Honda is helping save the Drive-In with their new project, #SaveTheDriveIn.

Future Chic by Felipe Vargas

Illustration // Monday, September 30, 2013
Felipe Vargas is an illustrator, animator, and motion graphics designer based in Santiago, Chile. His clean and vibrant illustrations depict a strange future where the blistering speed of everyday life calls for heavy helmets and stylish biker gear. Vargas' textures, lines, and color palette are reminiscent of the 1980's neon-tinged comic book representations of the future, his style following in the vintage-inspired footsteps of artist Killian Eng or the French electronic group Daft Punk.

Arcade Fire "Here Comes the Night Time" directed by Roman Coppola

Music // Monday, September 30, 2013
I'm not going to pretend that I was in the best headspace at 1AM on Saturday night when I decided to tune into Arcade Fire's 30 min NBC special that was aired after SNL. Part of me thought, "Hey, bands don't do network specials anymore, and Arcade Fire tend to be on the more interesting end of things, why not pour a little whiskey and watch?" What I turned to was a bizarre, experimental, oddball, celebrity-cameo'd, Roman Coppola-directed entree into the Montreal band's upcoming LP, Reflektor. We got to hand it to NBC... getting this on air takes... well, you know what we mean... 

Facial Fallout Series by Reiner Hansen

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 30, 2013
Recently, I hopped on the subway to sit for a portrait at Reiner Hansen’s Brooklyn studio and I got see the new series she had been telling me about. In these square format paintings (all 16x16 inches), Reiner merges her own likeness with cliche female types depicted in the media. These women sometimes look like desperate housewives, Walmart shoppers, plastic surgery victims, and crazed Alpha females.
