Complex Summer Vacation: Canvassing the World With David Mascha in Berlin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 09, 2015
We've been following along the last few weeks as at Complex and Adobe have teamed up for a series of Summer Vacation episodes, traveling to some of the world's most beautiful and unique locations for some creative inspiration. They hit up White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, an abandoned brewery in Berlin, and the forests of northern Japan as part of a five-part series that captures visual artists "stepping out of their studios and into a new environment for new inspiration." 

Tomoko Yoneda’s “Beyond Memory” @ Grimaldi Gavin

Photography // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
Until August 7, an exhibition of photographs by artist Tomoko Yoneda will be on display at the Grimaldi Gavin Gallery in London. The show, titled “Beyond Memory”, has been curated by Paul Wombell and contains images from numerous bodies of work by Yoneda. From structural studies to picturesque landscapes, the collection of images forms a cohesive body of work not only through through their engaging composition, but also through the real life stories behind each photograph. 

The Collage Work of Rocio Montoya

Erotica // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
We just came across the works of Madrid-based collage artist Rocio Montoya on Empty Kingdom, and we loved the mixture of fashion and a little old-school porn-ish vibe from the set. One series in particular, 1900, is especially interesting, as the artist cuts, re-arranges, and adds to old magazine spreads and intimate scenes. 

In the Magazine: FAILE @ Brooklyn Museum

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
There are two pivotal moments in FAILE’s career that stand out from the rest. The Times Square mural painted in 2013 was a reminder of the majestic size and overall collage aesthetic style their work can capture at its fullest, and the extent by which street art can be its most pop-centric. And, of course, Les Ballets de Faile installation at the New York City Ballet in 2013, a piece of art that was a literal monument connecting urban imagery with the high performance art that is the ballet. These two extremes perfectly define what FAILE is and has become; a balance between both outdoor and indoor presentations that reimagine the space they inhabit in a way that magnifies their art.

"Luminosity" by Joe Michael

Photography // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
No stranger to integrating technology with his creativity, Joe Michael has experimented with a variety of techniques creating 24-hour time-lapse landscape photography and even constructing 3D time-lapse rigs and 360-degree cinema experiences for Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” movie. His most recent project entitled Luminosity explores the species of glow-worms called Arachnocampa luminosa, which are found in limestone caves in New Zealand.

Alex G "Do You Agree?" @ Mt. Melvil, Culver City

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
On July 18th, 2015, Mt. Melvil will present “Do You Agree?” the first solo show by Alex G. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Alex is a promising contemporary artist whose artwork is unique beyond comparison. Using acrylic paint on wood, Alex aims to create relatable visual narrative through stark figurative compositions. “When looking at art, I find it important to consider three questions; what is the artist trying to say (concept/story/mood), how are they saying it (style/technique/medium), and whether or not I can relate to it. In making my work I am actively withholding the second question.

Oze 108 in 2015

Graffiti // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
Much like seeing a unicorn, a new Oze 108 is a rare sighting! This photograph perfectly captures Oze and Nmph’s freight, with all the colors in the scene matching each other.

Snarkitecture Installs Giant, Monochrome Ball Pit in DC Museum

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
In Snarkitecture's latest interactive architectural installation, they've installed a beach scene in the National Building Museum's Grand Hall and filled it with plastic balls—like in the ball pits you used to play in as a kid—but translucent white and created from recyclable plastic. Snarkitecture straddles the line between architecture and art, altering spaces within the high art world as well as for commercial clients. 

Juxtapoz Presents: De Colores de Cheech

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 08, 2015

Paul Jackson Can See Your Skeleton

Illustration // Wednesday, July 08, 2015
The death-and-anatomy-focused drawings of Toronto-based Paul Jackson feature portraits of humans or animals. In one series, he meticulously inks portraiture details and adds anatomically-researched skeletons. In another, animals are merely vessels for the humans operating them. In some, the images appear as technological projections, fading into visual interference.
