The Utopian Future by Tristram Lansdowne

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
If the future looks like this, sign us up. The paintings by Tristram Lansdowne remind us of those amazing, massive futuristic SimCity 2000 apartment complexes that house thousands upon thousands of people and look like Ecotopia. Only these little worlds are floating over a flooded earth, possibly the result of global climate change's ultimate ending. Or maybe they are just wonderfully imaginative. Has anyone ever read Ecotopia? Was that just our college course on Utopian literature?

7 Deadly Sins by Anton Senkov

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
A beautiful set of cyanotype illustrations by Anton Senkov, illustrating the seven deadly sins. As Senkov notes on his site, "My diploma project at Belarusian State Academy of Arts... [a] series of illustration for "Seven deadly sins" by Milorad Pavić." Stunning works...

Cept "Mind In Transit" @ Known Gallery, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
This Saturday, July 27, former Juxtapoz featured artist, Mike Ballard aka CEPT, will open a new solo show, Mind In Transit, at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. We had good friend Roger Gastman interview and say a few kind words about the UK-based CEPT, who will be celebrating his very first United States exhibition.

All in the Eyes: The Hyperreal Portraits of Ruben Belloso

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
When we post hyperreal fine artists, we like to see them in context with their work as it gives the painting a more intense, dramatic feel. So looking at Ruben Belloso standing next to his work, in process, makes these portraits all the more better. Even though we kind of want one of the paintings to put its shirt on.

Flash Art of Amund Dietzel @ Milwaukee Art Museum

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 26, 2013
In conjunction with Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary celebration, the Milwaukee Art Museum presents its first tattoo exhibition, highlighting the work of Amund Dietzel, who came to Milwaukee in 1913. This exhibition celebrates one hundred years since Dietzel’s arrival, and in the midst of what many consider a renaissance of tattooing, the Museum is proud to present the work of one of its earliest masters. Dietzel helped define the look of the “traditional” or “old school” tattoo, kept the practice alive through two world wars, and passed on his craft to future generations.

Swiss Army Knife: A Factory Tour of Victorinox

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
There are few people that I would get up at 4am for, let alone travel from London to Zurich and back in a day for. But for my old friends at Juxtapoz, and for one of the world’s most iconic design companies – Victorinox, I definitely made that exception. Everyone I know wanted to accompany me on the trip and I enjoyed watching my friend’s faces flush with excitement and jealousy, listening to them recount childhood memories of their fathers and grandfathers owning a Victorinox Swiss Army knife.

WALL THERAPY 2013 - Part 1

Street Art // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Juxtapoz has touched down in Rochester, NY for Wall Therapy and we are dashing around town trying to catch up with all the murals being created from over 30 artists. With our host and founder of the event, Dr. Ian Wilson, we made our first stop at the old abandoned train tunnels where we found two new highly patriotic pieces from the elusive artist Chris “Freedom” Pape, which is the rarest of treats considering we can’t even recall the last time we saw something new from him this decade (The famed Freedom Tunnels in New York were named after Freedom who created some of the first mural ever in there). 

Agostino Arrivabene "To Pathei Mathos" @ Panorama Museum, Badfrankenhausen, Germany

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
The Agostino Arrivabene "To Pathei Mathos" retrospective exhibition at the Panorama Museum in Badfrankenhausen, Germany is composed of 125 works, mostly paintings (miniature to large) and drawings, etchings and sketchbooks. During the opening, Arrivabene guided visitors through the chronological layout, giving explanations of ideas, symbols, themes, and techniques. The thorough instruction on the works was rich with interesting anecdotes.

Olga Larionova's Hyperrealistic Portraits

Illustration // Thursday, July 25, 2013
It's hard to believe that Russian artist Olga Larionova's hyperrealistic drawings, masterfully rendered in pencil, are not photographs. Larionova's markmaking is finely attuned to the nuances of light, surface and texture, making for a seriously impressive body of work. 

Music Video: Volcano Choir "Byegone" directed by Michinori Saigo

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Volcano Choir is the "side" project of Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and Wisconsin's Collections of Colonies of Bees. In 2009, they put out a stellar and understated album called Unmap that the office of Juxtapoz liked very much. And now that Vernon is a Grammy-award winner, he is back with the Choir and creating another great track, "Byegone," for the new album Reprave out September 3 on Jagjaguwar. The video was just released, featuring a tree, light sabers that blink, and a wonderfully serene experience directed by Michinori Saigo.
