Street Paintings and Public Installations By Lang-Baumann

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
The duo of Lang-Baumann, aka Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann, have been creating large-scale public works for over 20 years, and a lot of the newer work is centered on literal paintings of the street. Paint to asphalt. Recently, in Rennes, France, the duo created what you see above, a gigantic stretch of city street transformed into a full public art installation that interacts with the surrounding city. Or distracts... in a good way.

"In Orbit" TOMÁS Saraceno's Largest Installation to Date

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
  This isn't the first time we have posted the work of Tomas Saraceno. His latest, largest and most ambitious work also looks like the most fun ever. Like an adult playground! To create the mesh structure suspended 25 meters in the air, the artist worked with a team of architects, engineers and biologists (studying spiders) for over three years. The net itself weighs 3 tons and there are 6 inflated PVC spheres positioned within the mesh net. Like spiders, visitors must coordinate their activities with one another using vibration and their perception of space. Amazing.  

"Museum Anatomy" by Chadwick and Spector

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
We can't get enough of these Museum Anatomy photographs and body paintings by Chadwick and Spector. The duo has documented the works of museums around the world as recreated on the human body. The incredible process results in a final outcome that is sometimes unrecognizable as a human form.

Great Art in Ugly Rooms

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
The blog "Great Art in Ugly Rooms" is exactly that: a collection of photographs of art in a room that it probably doesn't deserve to be in (though we have to admit there are a few in here that are actually kind of nice). In the photographs, masterpieces are digitally moved from museums and galleries and juxtaposes(ha!) them in "ugly" rooms. 

The Work of Meguru Yamaguchi

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
Raised in Tokyo, Japan by fashion designer parents and at the epicenter of the city's street culture, Meguru Yamaguchi was introduced by his parents to a good amount of pop art while also immersed in Japanese Manga. He is a "Digital Impressionist," using portraits of his friends on social media as inspiration, the artist samples elements of painting, collage, acrylics, and spray paint to create colorful and dynamic works "reminiscent of Hip-Hop samplings from the 70s."
