What it Means to be 100

Erotica // Saturday, July 13, 2013
If you ask this 100-year-old great grandma a question, there's a pretty good chance her response will include the word "dick." The reporter repeatedly tries to ask the New York City-area centurion innocent questions about her birthday, but she turns the conversation back to the male anatomy.

Checking In With... Eric Yahnker

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We hadn't checked in with former cover artist Eric Yahnker in a long time, and before he opens his new solo show, Ebony & Benghazi at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles on September 6, 2013, we wanted to show a trio of his new works. His new massive colored pencil works feature such titles as The King Grabs Crotch, Vulcan Leather, and Liberace, You Sneaky S.O.B #3. 

3D Street Art by Francois Abelane... Large-Scale

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We can't really fathom what goes into these projects, but for Francois Abelane and this 4,000 square meter slab of 3D street art/literal on the street art, we are going to make an educated guess that this may be hard to accomplish. We just read on Indulgd that the project was done as a commission, "to launch of a new line of Renault trucks in Lyon, France."

E-David the Robot that Learned to Paint

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
e-David is a robot that, after being initially programmed, watches itself paint and decides on it's own where to add the next stroke and what color to use. Fashioned out of a welding machine, e-David was fashioned with cameras and sensors, five different brushes, a 24-color palette and taught to paint by a programmer. Watch the video after the jump...

Watch: Phil Akashi Paints Mandela Portrait with 27,000 Punches

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
Belgian artist Phil Akashi is also know as the 'seal artist.' He uses the traditional East Asian Seal as a medium in his artwork to forge a new artistic language linking East and West, placing the past in the service of the present. Most recently he fixed a Seal to the knuckle of a boxing glove, dipped it in cinnabar paste and began punching a wall with the Chinese characters for 'freedom,' eventually forming a giant portrait of Nelson Mandela. 

Tiny Heads Sculpted from Wonder Bread

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We remember playing with our cheap white bread when we were a kid, smashing and rolling it into balls, so we weren't surprised so much as impressed by Polish artist Milena Korolczuk's food sculptures. She has taken playing with her food to a whole new level, sculpting tiny heads of historic figures from Plato and Lenin to pop artists like Andy Warhol and rappers like Jay-Z.
