Update: The Paintings of Agostino Arrivabene

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 03, 2013
At first we thought this was work done on top of found art, but once we realized this was the brand new series of Italian painter, Agostino Arrivabene, we liked the work even more. Surreal, fantastical constructions of oil on wood, Arrivabene's works remind us of dark tarot cards. Update: This morning we take a look back through some more of Agostino's work including his wonderful sketchbooks and drawings!

Fore-Edge Painting, Scenes Painted on the Edges of Book Pages

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 03, 2013
Fore-edge painting is 'a way of hiding a painting on the edge of book so that it can only be seen when the pages are fanned out.' Dating back to the 1650s, it is demonstrated in these wonderful GIFs showing the edge of an 1937 book titled Autumn. Some books even have double for-edge paintings, with different ones appearing depending on the directio you flip the pages!

Using a combination of traditional illustration and digital techniques, Guzman creates incredible compositions comprised of conceptual forms and loosely rendered figures, employing a beautiful digitally-applied pastel palette to enhance her delightfully topsy-turvy drawing style. She describes herself as the owner of a pair of caffeine-congested lungs and a lover of goldfish, mechanical pencils, and the Oxford comma.

The Work of Lou Ros

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 02, 2013
We are enjoying the work of Lou Ros, Lou bases much of his work from photos. "It is a selection similar to that of a photographer, capturing a moment, an emotion, something... The transition to painting, transforms this thing again as I see it or how I feel it."
