Living Walls - Part 4

Street Art // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
As we reflect on the eventful week spent in Atlanta for the fourth edition of Living Walls, exhaustion kicks in. On our final two days we were able to see all the walls come to completion, which included the finishing of 3ttman, Nanook, Trek Mathews, and Roti’s walls. We attended a lecture series that took place on the 27th floor at the top of W Hotel that featured speakers and an artist panel all centered around urbanism and the use of public space. On the final day the main focus quickly shifted to getting the closing party ready that was to be held at the Goat Farm...

After seeing Mexico City based Smithe's awesome new mural with Nychos in Brooklyn, and another standout piece in Brooklyn, we went and checked out his newest works on his site that he has completed since he was in the magazine this past January.

Music Video: Portugal. The Man "Modern Jesus" dir AG Rojas

Music // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Portugal. The Man have been making great videos for years, but this recent gem from director AG Rojas for the track "Modern Jesus" may be our favorite to date. Just kind of watching the world go by in all its beautiful destruction and almost drug-fueled banality. Love this clip... 

Ink Drawings by Eugene Andolsek

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Using graph paper, a straight edge, a pair of compasses, and self-mixed colored inks, Eugene Andolsek created these wildly colorful and detailed geometric drawings. A stenographer during the day, Andolsek was untrained as an artist and would draw to escape the monotony of daily life while sitting at the kitchen table with his ailing mother. "The release was cathartic and pretty soon he was getting lost in the intricacies of his work and the geometric worlds he created, drawing and coloring for hours on end in a trance." Andolsek passed away in 2008.

"Stellar," a series of GIFs by Ignacio Torres

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
'This project began from the theory that humans are made of cosmic matter as a result of a stars death. I created imagery that showcased this cosmic birth through the use of dust and reflective confetti to create galaxies. The models organic bodily expressions as they are frozen in time between the particles suggest their celestial creation. In addition, space and time is heightened by the use of three-dimensional animated gifs. Their movement serves as a visual metaphor to the spatial link we share with stars as well as their separateness through time.'

Aki Inomata's Plastic Hermit Crab Habitats
