An Update with Aris

Street Art // Saturday, August 24, 2013
The simplistic abstract formation paintings of Italian artist, Aris, are unique in comparison to the majority of current work being created in the streets. Occasionally, if you examine the piece well, you can distinguish figures and natural elements present in the abstractions. The artist has updated his Flickr with a number of new works on walls and trains, and we have them here for your viewing pleasure.

Opening on August 23rd at Detroit’s Inner State Gallery, Entropy is ASKEW’s first international solo exhibition. Through this new body of work "Entropy" further refines Askew's unique method of portraiture where the medium and portrait's subject become a metaphor for a much bigger conversation....

Geoff McFetridge: Drawings for Nike SB Dunks, circa 2011

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
Back in 2011, in conjunction with September 2013 cover artist Geoff McFetridge's mini skate park installation for MOCA's Art In the Streets exhibition, the Los Angeles-based artist created 24 unique pairs of Nike SB Dunks, with each shoe being made from an original paper painting.

Design Works from Stéphane Massa-Bidal

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
One of the best bio descriptions we have read in a while: "Artist, hair icon, art director, cook, graphic designer, frenchie, Illustrator, dad, genius brain owner, tech digest, curator, co-owner The Contrepétographes." And then graphic designer Stéphane Massa-Bidal throws in this great quote from Larry Niven to complete the feeling: "The Dinosaurs Became extinct Because They Did not Have a space program." Well, then, that makes sense.

KAWS & REAS Have Big Things in store at MTV VMAs?

Music // Friday, August 23, 2013
Well, obviously KAWS has big things in store this weekend at the MTV Video Music Awards, airing this Sunday, August 25 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. We knew he had redesigned the iconic Moonman statue for the award show, and because we like to scour Instagram, we have seen a 60' foot KAWS designed Moonman that will be right in the heart of the Barclays Center during the show. But now we see some updates regarding the great Todd "REAS" James, some bears, and Miley Cyrus. We may actually watch this one.

Vault // Friday, August 23, 2013
Wayne White is a little bit of everything: illustrator, musician, art director, apparently a puppeteer... you know, all those things that make one an artist. You may know him for his art direction of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, or perhaps for his fast becoming signature text over landscape reproduction works that have been part of an amazing monograph edited by Todd Oldham.

The Work of Alejandrina Herrera

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 23, 2013
  Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera creates beautiful scenes on the basis of drawing, collage and watercolor.
