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. 

Urs Fischer "Melodrama" @ Sadie Coles HQ, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 30, 2013
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.

Street Art // Monday, December 30, 2013
Borondo has newly painted a beautiful diptych mural of two figures with their arms crossed behind their backs in Tetuán, Madrid. Having in the past been described as a figurative impressionism style, his painterly esthetic exudes rich emotion and intensity. 

The Work of Arthur D'Araujo

Illustration // Monday, December 30, 2013
Arthur D'Araujo was born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1984 and has had an affinity for illustration since he was a little kid.  Besides drawings, he is attracted to old school samba and colorful patterned shirts, it is clear that his talent for the illustrated line is quite profound.

Erotic Master: Nobuyoshi Araki

Erotica // Monday, December 30, 2013
Known best for his intimate, snapshot-style images of women often tied up with ropes (kinbaku, Japanese rope-tying art) and of colorful, sensual flowers, Araki is an artist who reacts strongly to his emotions and uses photography to experience them more fully. Obsessed with women, Araki seeks to come closer to them through photography, using ropes like an embrace and the click of the shutter like a kiss...

Best of 2013: Halloween Used to be Creepier

Juxtapoz // Sunday, December 29, 2013
Originally published October 31st, 2013: Perhaps it's just the old, faded photos but it seems to us from looking at these vintage photographs that Halloween costumes used to be much much creepier and weirder than it is now.
