PJ Harvey "Recording in Progress" @ Somerset House, London

Music // Friday, January 09, 2015
PJ Harvey has long been a bit of a chameleon in the music world. Her last album, Let England Shake, showed that not only could an artist hit an artistic peak 8 albums in, but also transform their sound and songwriting approach. It was one of our favorite albums of 2011. When news broke that Harvey was gonig to recording her next album live, in front of more or less a museum-going audience at the Somerset House in London from Janaury 16, 2015 on, we thought it was a genius statement about the time, energy and artistic craft that goes into making an album...  

Shabazz Palaces "Forerunner Foray" by Chad Van Gaalen

Music // Friday, January 09, 2015
We've been fans of Shabazz Palaces for a while now and they've always done a fantastic job seeking out the best talent to do their music videos. Their latest is no exception. Directed by musician, animator, and label mate Chad VanGaalen, "Forerunner Foray" (off their latest album Le Majesty) is a surreal, psychedelic animated time-travelling, pizza-surfing adventure through space.

Nasa's "vintage" travel posters for newly discovered planets

Design // Friday, January 09, 2015
We're going to the moon!!! Or, some really far-off distant planet! NASA, probably just sitting around their offices really bored about looking into space around the holidays, have created "vintage" style travel posters for 3 newly discovered planets, including the ever-popular Kepler-16b. As the Guardian notes, "(The posters) created by the space agency’s visual strategists Joby Harris, David Delgado and Dan Goods, the posters feature art-deco typography, bold colours and classic design, evocative of the golden age of travel."

Borondo "Animal" @ Londonewcastle Project Space

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 09, 2015
We got to spend some time with Spanish artist Borondo while at Nuart this past year, and loved his painterly style that ended up becoming multi-storied murals. Beautiful, intense stuff. The artist will open his largeest solo show to date, "Animal," at Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch, London, on February 5. We got a little teaser video to show you today...

Paintings by Slava Fokk

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 09, 2015
The greatest challenge an artist faces is to adequately channel his first bursts of creative energy. It is necessary to constantly work at improving one’s skills in order to effectively tackle this challenge. I combine these practically obsolete concepts with modern decorative themes. In the present body of work, I wanted to create a slightly nostalgic atmosphere.

Paintings by Guillermo Lorca

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 09, 2015
We've been admiring the paintings of Chilean painter Guillermo Garcia-Huidobro Lorca. Guillermo started his artistic training at age 16 with Chilean painter Sergio Montero and after his first solo exhibition in 2007 had the opportunity to spend some time as an apprentice in the studio of the one an only Odd Nerdrum. He currently works in Santiago, Chile preparing for projects all over the world!

UV Erotica by Robert Babylon

Erotica // Friday, January 09, 2015
Robert Babylon has been creating erotic photography for 15 years, capturing everything from raunchy bondage to soft, sensual black-and-whites celebrating the human body, ever since he became bored of his work at the British National Space Programme. Taking a risk, he followed his passion for photography -- a hobby since he was 15 -- teaming up with his equally open-minded wife, Caroline Martin, to create erotic art.
