Bread & Puppet, June 2011

Vault // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
If you grew up in the Northeast of the United States, and your parents were on the liberal kind, perhaps even of the hippie performance art/political theatre bent, then maybe you came across the wonderful world of Vermont's Bread & Puppet. This year, the group celebrates its 50th year, and we look back on our feature on Peter Schuman's influential, timeless live puppet and performance group, and their impact on performance art in America and the world.

Doug Aitken's "Station to Station": From the Atlantic to the Pacific

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
The mantra for multi-media artist Doug Aitken's Station to Station project is simple: "In September 2013, a train will travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Activating the cultural landscape, Station to Station will connect artists, musicians and creative pioneers...". A moving public art, installation, gallery, and sculpture moving across the US, in other words. Okay, maybe this isn't so simple.

Update: The Works of Alexandro Garcia

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
We recently saw some pieces from Uruguay's Alexandro Garcia that we hadn't seen before. A few years ago we became aware of his incredibly diverse and other-worldly drawings. A UFO sighting meant a profound change in the life of Garcia, who soon began to make drawings of an intricate and meticulous graphics from the experience.

Bizarre Hair & Skin Art by Patricia Piccinini

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
When we saw these at a glance we thought we were looking at some moleskin sketchbook illustrations. As soon as we took a closer look we realized that they were made from skin and hair! This is not the first time we have posted the work of Australian artist Patricia Piccinini. Her startlingly lifelike and equally bizarre sculptures had us feeling just as uncomfortable a few months ago. We also loved her incredible "Sky Whale" hot air balloon! 

PONCHO: I Ponch Piano

Erotica // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Art direction team "CINCØ" has released a pornographic-ish music video for PONCHO, an electronic band from Buenos Aires. The result is quite interesting; you'll never look at the Jack in the Box guy the same again. Take a look!

Vintage Polish album covers

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 26, 2013
A few years back, the outstanding site 50 Watts had a collection of vintage Polish album cover designs, collected from the archives of a state owned Polish record label, "Muza" (Muse). This collection spans from the 1950s to the 1970s, and features a various array of abstract and psychedelic styles of the era. 

Japan Rocks by Anna Tsubaki

Illustration // Monday, August 26, 2013
Based in Tokyo, Japan, illustrator Anna Tsubaki's bright and kinetic work takes a modern spin on the traditional art of ukiyo-e, using blocks of vivid color and bold linework to create her own visions of a floating world overflowing with rock n' roll swagger. Tsubaki's figures run the gamut from demons to rock stars to ninjas, all possessing a characteristic buoyancy of movement and personality that mimics the insouciant bluster of the rock n' roll lifestyle: cool, confident, and ready to rock your socks off.
