Playful Street Art by Ian Stevenson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
"Ian's ideas are crammed into his head like toys in a popular middle-class boy's bedroom...Ian's eyes are keener than a trucker's on special trucker speed and with those soppy old big blues of his he began to notice all over blank, cheerless surfaces, gaping and desolate waiting to be filled: a discarded fridge here, an abandoned gas fire there, rubbish bags and cardboard boxes, all with handy blank spaces, acting like fertilizer to ripen Ian’s mind."

We don't know much about the artists Francisco Infante-Arana & Nonna Gorunova, or about these photos. Using mirrored sculptures to interupt the landscapes, the duo, part of a collective of premier Russian avant-garde artists known as the Movement Group.

The Work of Hannah Antalek

Erotica // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Hannah Antalek's work is an exploration and critique of America that references pop culture and consumerism with social and political undercurrents. She attempts to bridge the divide of high and low art by using tacky colors and cliche or kitschy iconography in contrast with sanctified or stereotypically beautiful imagery. This juxtaposition aims to reinforce the cynical yet humorous attitude towards her subject.

Nuart 2013: Street Pieces, Part 3

Street Art // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
We are still settling back in after a week in Stavanger, Norway for the 2013 edition of the Nuart Festival, and we have a few more street pieces that were completed to showcase. DALeast, Faith 47, and C215 all had works around town, with DAL and Faith having massive murals right in the heart of the city center, and C215 had both a mural and a bunch of little stencil gems littered about the town.

Music Video: Arcade Fire "Reflektor" dir by Anton Corbijn

Music // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Welcome back, Arcade Fire, a good timing at that for us. Anton Corbijn, who shot the photo of Tom Waits on the cover of our October 2013 issue, directs this sprawling Talking Heads meets Bee Gees meets Daft Punk meets Arcade Fire meets LCD Soundsystem (he did produce the track) track "Reflektor" for the Montreal-based band.

The Work of Ruth Marten

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
We've posted the work of New York-based artist Ruth Marten before, the dubious accuracy of her drawings on antique etchings always impresses us. Taking these etchings, often of scientific subjects, Marten transforms the imagery into something fantastic and often perverse! 

The Photography of Dario Mitidieri

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Italian photographer Dario Mitidieri has traveled the world documenting festivals, celebrations, disasters, tragedies, and horrors. His photographs are just as haunting, beautiful, and moving as the events and people he captures in them. 

The Oasis of Aboukir, a Vertical Garden in Paris

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Living wall inventor Patrick Blanc's latest installation called L'Oasis D'Aboukir (the Oasis of Aboukir) includes plants from 237 different species planted in diagonal waves. Coinciding with Paris Design Week (Sept. 9th-15th) the wall occupies a five-story building and brings some much-needed green to the inhabitants of the city. We think there should be more of these out there!

Human Movement Translated into Colorful Visuals

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Do you remember when your computer would freeze and you could drag the windows around, creating endless trails behind it? We think you can still do something similar to your mouse pointer somewhere in your settings... JL Design, a Taiwanese design firm, recently produced a colorful series translating human movement into visuals that remind us of that (except way way cooler). Using six motion-sensing cameras to capture the movements, the firm captures the different movements of a father and his daughter, dancers, a romantic couple, and a martial arts expert.
