"I'm no bad, I'm Just Draw'n that way" @ Womb Gallery

Graffiti // Saturday, August 10, 2013
Last night in Oklahoma City, Womb Gallery opened a new exhibition entitled "I'm no bad, I'm Just Draw'n that way" featuring a slew of new work from graffiti artist, Veks. From the photos, the work appears to be an eclectic mix of styles created using a variety of mediums. Veks has spent a significant amount of time traveling across the U.S. painting his graffiti in less traveled and off-the-beaten-path destinations.

Juxtapoz @ Outside Lands 2013, Day 1 in Music

Music // Friday, August 09, 2013
Juxtapoz is on the ground at the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival held in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park each August (and that would be Aug 9-11 this year), and again for the third year, we have curated the art portion of the event. This year, we have Mike Shine, Dennis McNett, and Camille Rose Garcia created site-specific installations, but of course, there is a ton of music, and today we are showcasing some of the best music that we might be seeing today... let's gander... 

Embroidered Architecture by Stephanie Clark

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
Salt Lake City-based artist Stephanie Clark paints with thread. "The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complexity." Referring to it as her "way down the rabbit hole," Clark has created a system of sweing the threads in a sequence that ultimately "gives the illusion of a certain vaule or color. The direction in which the threads are sewn mimic the way the lines are layred in a drawing to give the hint of depth, volume, and form."

Paintings by Travis Collinson

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
San Francisco-based artist Travis Collinson's process involves taking elements of photographs and sketches and reinterpreting them at a larger scale in his paintings. Influenced by classical painting and minimal abstraction, Collinson work plays with perspective and distortion in an effective and interesting way.

NASA's Space Station Concept Drawings From the '70s

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
The early 70s saw America's first space station built and occupied. Following a successful trip to the moon (so they say), the possibilities were endless and within reach! Space colony? Sure! These illustrations were commissioned by NASA and depicted each artist's vision of the future of space stations. 

Floor Installations by Suzan Drumming

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
Amsterdam-based artist Suzan Drumming makes paintings, photographs, films, installations, and other works in public spaces. Like much of her work, these particular floor installations originated from her fascination for watching and playing with space, illusion and optical effects. Composed of crystal, chromed metal, precious stones, mirrors and optical glass, Drumming's installations can look clean and uncluttered from afar and detailed and disorienting up close.

Take a look at some wonderful process sketches along with his sculptures after the jump...

Miami Beach Police tazer kid to death after doing graffiti

Graffiti // Thursday, August 08, 2013
Once again the excessive force taken by police officers has taken center stage in Miami, where local police tasered an 18-year-old boy to death Tuesday night after chasing him for doing graffiti. Israel Hernandez who was a skateboarder and artist, was doing graffiti on an abandoned McDonalds, which led to a chase and the eventual tasering. Hernandez recently launched his own skateboard line and had a number of shows featuring his artwork in local galleries. His sister was quoted saying, “He wanted to change the world somehow through art.” 

"Her": A Spike Jonze Love Story

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 08, 2013
We haven't heard from Spike Jonze in a bit, after the beautiful Where the Wild Things Are and the excellent Arcade Fire film, Scenes from The Suburbs. Now, he is back, and from the looks of it, the feel is another sublime, subtle piece of filmmaking and writing. Her is being billed as the Spike Jonze love story and a take on modern life, love in the face of technology and anonymous communication. The fill features Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde, and the voice of Scarlett Johansson. And it appears that Arcade Fire have done the film's score... check out the trailer after the jump!
