You have less than a week, until January 31 to apply and we can't emphasize enough how much you will be thanking us if you end up going.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Año tras año Borondo ha ido sumando adeptos a su trabajo. Y no es para menos. El artista español orbita entre la delicadeza del clasicimos de sus composiciones y la brutalidad de su estilo.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
It is always nice to see a skilled fantasy surreal painter, as is the case with artist Jacek Yerka. His paintings, at times, look like the inspiration of for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Delicatessen. That is a very good thing. Look at a mini-portfolio after the jump . . .

Moses Hacmon Photographs Water in Motion

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Israeli artist Moses Hacmon has found a way to capture water in motion through an analog photographic technique using a fluid film made out of nanoparticles that retains a liquid layer of iron. This registers the water's movement first and then allows it to be imprinted on any surface in any shape. The resulting photographic negative is then transformed into a positive image. The process is the result of eleven years of studying and investigating the physical characteristics of the flow of water. Watch a video after the jump...

The Work of Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Each piece from Thai artist Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew "starts from a canvas backdrop that is set inside a deep casement, and that is then lightly veiled by multiple layers of thread and netting. The artist paints not only on the canvas but also on the thread and netting in order to create shimmering portraits and figurative scenes. He creates a depth of field that goes beyond three-dimensional space; rather, his work captures a time-space dimension in a way that has few parallels in the history of art.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Legally blind until age seven when he got his first pair of glasses, Mothersbaugh started fashioning his own version of the world at the outset and has not stopped. Though best known as frontman for Devo (of “Whip It” fame), collaborating with filmmaker Wes Anderson, and building soundtracks for children’s shows like Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, Yo Gabba Gabba! and Rugrats, Mothersbaugh is first and foremost a visual artist.
