Best of 2013: Behind the Scenes Photos from "The Shining"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 31, 2013
Originally published on December 2, 2013: We recently watched "Room 237," a film exploring the many theories, conspiracies, and perceived meanings of Kubrick's "The Shining." In addition to inspiring us to re-watch the film a few more times, it also had us getting lost in a little bit of a Kubrick internet research wormhole. Today's finding is a collection of behind-the-scenes photos from the Shining, our favorite being Kubrick's self portrait with his daughter with Jack Nicholson out of focus.

Soviet Posters of the Silent Screen @ GRAD, London

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 31, 2013
The 1920s saw the advent of new and radical graphic design created to advertise silent films across the Soviet Union. Film posters of this era have become masterpieces in their own right, produced at a time when innovative on-screen techniques were being incorporated into the design of advertisements. Some 30 works will be on display at the Gallery for Russian Arts and Design in London from January 17th to March 29th, 2014.

Best of 2013: Low Bros, October 2013

Vault // Monday, December 30, 2013
Look! It's almost the new year, and we have been counting down the days with some of our favorite features from the 2013 print editions of Juxtapoz. Today, we look at Berlin-based fine artists and muralists the Low Bros, who consistently have been adding a bit of late 1980s, early '90s style and flair to both the streets and the gallery scene. This feature first appeared in Juxtapoz in the October 2013 edition.

A few more days and into the new year to go and see a great looking installation show from Urs Fischer up at Sadie Coles in London through January 6, 2014. Not only are there 3,000 pastel-coloured plaster raindrops throughout the show, you have an entire installation of clay sculptures taking in the drops.

The Works of Nina Chanel Abney

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 30, 2013
We became familiar with Nina Chanel Abney's work over the years of showing at NYC's Kravets/Wehby Gallery, but it was the gallery's recent pairing of Abney with Juxtapoz' personal favorite Charlie Roberts that got us really into the last two years of Abney's work. Born in Chicago and based in NYC, Abney has works in the colleciton of the Brooklyn Museum and Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Best of 2013: Hyperrealistic Animals Made From Painted Layers of Resin

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 30, 2013
Originally published on November 4th, 2013: Singapore-based artist Keng Lye is back with some new resin paingings. By meticulously painting layers of epoxy resin with acrylics, Lye produces works of art that float somewhere between painting and sculpture. Each piece can consist of patiently executed layers which are necessary to create the sense of depth they have. The series is titled Alive Without Breath.
