Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek's series of photographs 'doublefaced' are simple, clever fun! Using an eye pencil and lipstick, he draws a face on to the side of a face and photographers the subject in various locations!

Matchstick and Other Sculptures by Oakes Oakes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Twin brothers Ryan and Trevor Oakes (aka Oakes Oakes) create sculptures out of everyday items such as matchstick, pipe cleaners, and cardboard. Starting with a ring of matches on a flat surface, the duo slowly stacked more and found that instead of emerging into a dome, the space between the match heads caused a sea-shell like spiral!

Incredible Ballpoint Pen Carpet Drawings by Jonathan Bréchignac

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Art director of Joe&Nathan studio in Paris, Jonathan Bréchignac, has created some unbelievably detailed drawings of "carpets" using ballpoint Bic pens.

He finds the long and meticulous process meditative, allowing him to relax and focus. 

Drawings by Joe Biel

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 24, 2013
This morning we take a look at the drawings of Los Angeles-based artist Joe Biel. His most recent work has increased both in scale and complexity, addressing a theme of poetic collision between beauty and the (sometimes cruel) absurdity of the contemporary world. "This collision produces a variety of situations, ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime, all of which reveal a vulnerable sense of humanity."

The Absence Of Water

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 23, 2013
The Sutro Baths has been a San Franciscan destination since the 19th Century, so Juxtapoz is familiar with how arresting decaying pools can really be. When we came across Gigi Cifali's series "Absence of Water" we were excited to see that we're not the only ones who find beauty in old pools. "Absence of Water" was Cifali's first solo show  at the Ritrovo di Shazar which opened 16th May 2011, in Benevento, Italy.

Banksy: “Better Out Than In”

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 23, 2013
We were wondering when Banksy would make an appearance again, as it has been over a year since the last London Olympics pieces. And then today, via the artist's website, the world was served an announcement of sorts of something happening in October 2013.
