Nadezhda Illarionova's Dark Fairy Tales

Illustration // Thursday, October 30, 2014
Nadezhda Illarionova is a Russian graphic artist and illustrator. Her whimsical illustrations, with nude nymph harpists and a cathedral filled with grisaille human-swan hybrids, seem as if they are pulled right from children's stories. But with dark, earthy palettes and faces that range from surprised to devious, we suspect these images telling the Grimm not Disney versions.

Andy Warhol And His Mother's Little-Known Collaborations

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 30, 2014
Way before Andy Warhol became the Pop pioneer that we now know him to be, he worked as a freelance children’s book illustrator. And in 1954, Andy and his mother Julia Warhola released a limited-edition book titled 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy. Not only is the title quirkily ungrammatical, there are only 16 cats in the book. Enjoy!

Hyperphotos by Jean-François Rauzier

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Paris-based photographer Jean-François Rauzier's images are approximately 10,000 times the resolution of a normal photograph. The image remains extremely crisp even when blown up to 66 feet wide (two school buses). Rauzier began his career as a fashion photographer but had always longed to break out of the constraints of the industry. Realizing he could use digital photography to compose a grid of pictures, the artist went on to create these incredibly detailed panoramas.

Jung-Yeon Min's Investigations of Time

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 29, 2014
Jung Yeon Min’s works are highly imaginative and rich. One finds multiple worlds, the extraordinary and the realistic, notions of micro and macro, and manipulations of space and time in her work. Specifically, her work offers two equal but divergent investigations. On the one hand, she envisions and explores a mysterious and fantastical world.
