Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
A show that our colleague checked out in Detroit this past week... Inner State Gallery presents an entirely new body of work from Detroit artist and famed designer of the Ford GT Camilo Pardo. Returning to Detroit for his first hometown exhibition in two years, “Zero Gravity” will be a uniquely Detroit summertime exhibition. The solo exhibition invites the public to engage with Camilo’s signature artwork, fashion, automobiles and refreshments, served up as only Camilo Pardo can. The exhibition will be shown through August 20th at Inner State Gallery, located at 1410 Gratiot Ave in Detroit’s Eastern Market.

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
Japanese artist Ikeda Manabu begins his process with a giant blank canvas, a small acryclic pen, and no iea what the final piece will look like. He can spend eight hourse a day, for years on a single drawing that spans an entire wall. The incredibly detailed drawings watch traditional Japanese architecture clash with treet roots, water, birds and fish!

Vintage Political Posters From Cuba

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
The Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and Latin America (OSPAAAL) is a cuban politcal movement that, in our opinion, happens to have a history of excellent poster design. The organization's purpose is to fight globalization, imperialism, neoliberalism and defend human rights.

Juxtapoz @ The New Balance Factory, Flimby, UK

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
A few years back, in a run of sneaker purchases, I found a great pair of New Balance 576 sneakers, made in the UK, that I paid probably way too much for but just had to have. Since, I have had a minor obsession with New Balance and their UK editions, and in research and conversations with Jux contributor Helen Soteriou, found out NB makes their shoes at a factory in Flimby, Cumbria, UK. Helen took the opportunity to go visit the factory last week, and we found a great team of people putting together sneakers for the European market. 

Famous Paintings Recreated with Food... as in Sandwiches...

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
We are always looking for fun stuff to post on the site, to explore the random possibilites of art. Well, we have seen really amazing things done with food art in the past, but sometimes if you have some fruit, bread, and some cheese, you can be like Norwegian photographer Ida Skivenes and take that to a whole new level by making classic painting and pop-culture icons with your breakfast snack. Magritte with apples? Nice.

"VOYAGE D’HERMES": When Moebius Created Work for HERMÈS

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
The genius and brilliance of French illustrator and cartoonist Moebius, born Jean Giraud, just keeps growing, even after his death in 2012. We just saw that in 2011, the artist created a series of nine illustrations for fashion giant Hermes as part of their campaign titled "VOYAGE D’HERMES." Not quite sure where the works ended up, because in our research there doesn't appear to be apparel, but there was one commercial that was inspired by the Moebius series... 

Mike Pelletier's Haunting 3D Animations of Human Emotions

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
Mike Pelletier is an Amsterdam-based interative artist who explores 'quantified emotion' using a techology to monitor 'the relative state of human beings, most closely associated with facial recognition software. Watch the video and GIFs after the jump to see eerie computer generated bodies with devilish grins, twisted, and exploading angrily...'

Update: The Work of Yue MinJun

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
We've shown the work of Chinese artist Yue Minjun before. The artist's iconic smiling self-portraits always make us very happy and little creeped out at the same time. Minjun recently presented his first major european exhibition at the Fondation Cartier Pour L'art Contemporain in Paris through March of this year. The paintings are large, vivid, and sometimes grotesque, expressing 'an ironic and disillusioned vision of the social and political situation in contemporary china and of the human condition in the modern world.'

Self-Portraits by Fabiano Rodrigues

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
Sao Paulo-based photographer and ex-pro skater Fabiano Rodrigues has taken a wonderful series of self-portraits of himself skating in superbly chosen and composed locations, often museums, and outside/in architectural landmarks around the city. Taken with a Hasselblad and remote control, the one off prints explore "the history and repertoire of skateboarding movements, particularly its relationship with the city, its architecture and urban furniture."

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
This morning we take a lok at the illustrations and drawings of Swedish artist Erik Svetoft. We are enjoying his rather grotesque and disembodied creatures as well as his black ink drawings of strange scenes full of perfectly odd shaped characters.
