Presented earlier this month at Beijing Design Week, The Beautiful Future, is a series of paintings made in Pyongyang, North Korea by a handful of propaganda artists. Commissioned by a pair of Beijing ex-pats who run a North Korean tour guide company, the paintings show contemporary China as it could have been, if it had continued with Maoist ideology.

Idiots

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 21, 2013
We don't think these Dutch artists are Idiots, this is actually their name. In fact, they are far from Idiots, as we are finding some of their works to be quite fantastic metaphors and interpretations of common knowledge.
