Update: Anatomical Surrealism of Valerio Carrubba

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
If Salvador Dali lived today and really wanted to get into the medical profession but wanted to keep his artistic chops, we get a gut feeling that his work could possibly go in the direction of Milan, Italy's Valerio Carrubba. We have always wanted to coin a term such as "Anatomical Surrealism," but now we sort of want to call Carrubba's work "Anatomical Surrealist Landscape" painting.

Portraits Made From Screws by Andrew Meyers

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
We're having fun this Friday morning with German-born, Spain-raised, and California-based artist Andrew Meyers and his portraits made from screws. Using thousands of screws, the artist drives them in at different depths to give the piece a unique sense of texture 3 dimensionality. Once the screws are in, he will paint over each individual (often 7,000-10,000) screw head by hand to create the finish portrait.

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
Japanese artist Ikeda Manabu begins his process with a giant blank canvas, a small acryclic pen, and no iea what the final piece will look like. He can spend eight hourse a day, for years on a single drawing that spans an entire wall. The incredibly detailed drawings watch traditional Japanese architecture clash with treet roots, water, birds and fish!

Vintage Political Posters From Cuba

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
The Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and Latin America (OSPAAAL) is a cuban politcal movement that, in our opinion, happens to have a history of excellent poster design. The organization's purpose is to fight globalization, imperialism, neoliberalism and defend human rights.

Juxtapoz @ The New Balance Factory, Flimby, UK

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
A few years back, in a run of sneaker purchases, I found a great pair of New Balance 576 sneakers, made in the UK, that I paid probably way too much for but just had to have. Since, I have had a minor obsession with New Balance and their UK editions, and in research and conversations with Jux contributor Helen Soteriou, found out NB makes their shoes at a factory in Flimby, Cumbria, UK. Helen took the opportunity to go visit the factory last week, and we found a great team of people putting together sneakers for the European market. 

Famous Paintings Recreated with Food... as in Sandwiches...

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
We are always looking for fun stuff to post on the site, to explore the random possibilites of art. Well, we have seen really amazing things done with food art in the past, but sometimes if you have some fruit, bread, and some cheese, you can be like Norwegian photographer Ida Skivenes and take that to a whole new level by making classic painting and pop-culture icons with your breakfast snack. Magritte with apples? Nice.

"VOYAGE D’HERMES": When Moebius Created Work for HERMÈS

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
The genius and brilliance of French illustrator and cartoonist Moebius, born Jean Giraud, just keeps growing, even after his death in 2012. We just saw that in 2011, the artist created a series of nine illustrations for fashion giant Hermes as part of their campaign titled "VOYAGE D’HERMES." Not quite sure where the works ended up, because in our research there doesn't appear to be apparel, but there was one commercial that was inspired by the Moebius series... 

Mike Pelletier's Haunting 3D Animations of Human Emotions

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 01, 2013
Mike Pelletier is an Amsterdam-based interative artist who explores 'quantified emotion' using a techology to monitor 'the relative state of human beings, most closely associated with facial recognition software. Watch the video and GIFs after the jump to see eerie computer generated bodies with devilish grins, twisted, and exploading angrily...'
