Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
These images, taken from scrolls produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603-1868), depict he-gassen or "farting competitions." Yes, that's right, farting. According to the website Naruhodo, "Similar drawings were used to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images depicting the westerners blown away by Japanese farts."

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Some people paint portraits, and others (or in this case, one other) cut layer upon layer of wire mesh to create a portrait. Korean artist Seung Mo Park starts with a photograph then superimposes it over layers of wire with a projector, and then starts snipping away! We've posted the impressive wire work of Seungo Mo Park before, examining his flawless sculptures...

Juxtapoz Presents: Silas Hite - Music and Art

Music // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
"When the music in me slows down, I pick up a pen and draw. When the ink begins to flow less easily, I trade the pen for an instrument and resume where I left off with a renewed sense of purpose. It’s a symbiotic relationship between art and music. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to tap into it and spend my days creating."

Paintings by Marion Lane

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
We are enjoying the works of Los Angeles-based artist Marion Lane this morning. 'Though Lane's paintings look something like hybrids between amoeba DNA and corner-shop candies, they contain hints of all the vital ingredients of the city's make-up, from sun and sea to concrete and steel - rendered with such hypnotic appeal that it's hard to look away.'  

Vija Celmins' Limitless Spaces

Illustration // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Vija Celmins was born in Riga, Latvia, in 1938. She immigrated to the United States with her family when she was ten years old, settling in Indiana. She received a BFA from the John Herron Institute in Indianapolis, and later earned her MFA in painting from the University of California, Los Angeles. Celmins received international attention early on for her renditions of natural scenes—often copied from photographs that lack a point of reference, horizon, or discernable depth of field.
