Egon Schiele "The Radical Nude" @ The Courtauld Gallery, London

Erotica // Wednesday, October 22, 2014
It is funny to include these groundbreaking works in an Erotica section, yet looking at it another way, these works pratcially invented the term. From The Courtauld: Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career. Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.

Banksy: Girl with a Pierced Eardrum

Street Art // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Banksy has dropped a few new pieces over the past weeks, and we really like this "Girl with a Pierced Eardrum" work that was put up in Bristol, England found near the city's harbor. The piece is obviously an ode and update to the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, which if you remember was the subject of a Scarlett Johansson-starring movie. We just wanted Banksy and Scarlett in the same post, and we achieved our goal.

The World of Alison Blickle

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
"My paintings let me live out fantasies through characters I create. These stories often involve my desire to feel a connection to something bigger than myself-- to nature, to my ancestors, or to a sense of spirituality. I’ve created an alter ego who appears as a recurring protagonist in my paintings. This imaginary version of me is who I wish I could be-- a strong, fearless hero engaged in exploration and adventures." —Alison Blickle

To Be A Nun Today

Photography // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
In his photographic series “Commitment”, Scotland-based photographer Craig Buchan visually chronicles the daily life of a modern day nun. Focusing specifically on the sisters of the Poor Clare Monastery, Buchan shows how although these nun live their lives void of material possessions, there are certain possessions that they are obliged to use.

The Digital Darkness of Pierre Fudaryli

Erotica // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Mexico-based digital artist and photo manipulator Pierre Fudaryli is throwing us for a nice loop this morning as we gather our heads around this dark, stunning, and disturbingly absorbing series of works. The work is like a mixture of late-era Pink Floyd covers meets Dali meets an upsetting peyote afternoon. 

A look inside Trent Parke's "Minutes to Midnight"

Photography // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
“Minutes to Midnight is an apocalyptic book, but they are real documents, they’re real events, real moments in time that have happened,” explains Magnum photographer Trent Parke. Shot over the course of two years and covering over 90,000 km, Minutes to Midnight is a seductively dark, black and white, enigmatic narrative of Parke’s homeland of Australia. 

In the Magazine: Tristram Lansdowne

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Nothing is more engaging than fantasy. When at the height of imagination, we are capable of conjuring rational or unrealistic scenarios based purely on our own desires. The possibility, in combination with perceived actuality, defines existence. We are composed of things known and experienced, and that which can be imagined, which is eminently apparent in the paintings of Tristram Lansdowne...

Humberto Casas Junca's School Desk Drawings

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Artist Humberto Casas Junca draws on classic school desks, combining his detailed drawings of violent events in Colombia with Norwegian black metal logos. Maybe if our drawings were this good when we doodled and carved our desks in school we wouldn't have spent so many recesses in time out....but maybe not.

The sculpture, commissioned by the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation, is constructed using sustainable PH-neutral materials and will create an artificial reef for marine life and draw tourists away from stressed natural areas.
