Kilian Eng, June 2012

Vault // Friday, June 28, 2013
One of our favorite artists of the past three years, Sweden-based Kilian Eng, just released his new book, Object 10, through Floating World Comics. Because we like any good time to check in with Eng and see what new works and projects he has going on, we look back on his interview in the print pages of Juxtapoz in June 2012, where we discuss science-fiction, other universes, and Ligne Claire. 

Installation by Anya Sirota + AKOAKI in Amilly, France

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
Michigan-based design studio, Anya Sirota + AKOAKI created this great installation of two 30-feet large star sculptures in a defunct tannery in Amilly, France. As UR Design notes, "The project, titled Pop It Up, comes at a critical moment for the tannery complex. Come fall 2013, the site will be converted into a cultural art center. In its current state of coming-undone-ness, however, with its bared concrete structure and second-story wood flooring and windows removed, the surviving architecture offers exceptional opportunities for experimentation and interim engagement." Its Friday, we like sharing quotes. 

EINE for Louis Vuitton

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
In a long line of artist collaborations with fashion giant Louis Vuitton, UK-based EINE has recently created a scarf with the brand. Or as we just learned, a "'Giant Square' scarf, which measures an impressive 136cm x 136cm." EINE's alphabet style is emblazoned all over the scarf, spelling out things like "Louis Vuitton," and "Great Adventures." This past week, a pop-up shop opened at Selfridges on Oxford Street in the heart of London, featuring both EINE's art and the scarf collaborations.

Born in Swindon, England in 1986, Iain Macarthur became a fanatic of art at the age of eight when he was first introduced to art through the medium of cartoon television shows and comic books. As he grew older, he diverted from Anime drawings to more realistic figures and faces, always striving to make them more detailed and photorealistic. Iain describes his work as surreal and unique in its own way.

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
It seems like in the last year, even last couple of months; digital printing technology is advancing at a ridiculous speed and being experimented with in every aspect of our lives. NASA is printing food for astronauts, there are 3D printed fashion shows, sculpture making robots, and you can even get your own personal desktop 3D printer. Now we are printing architecture. Digital Grotesque used digital fabrication techniques to construct a room with eighty million surfaces and preceded to guild the entire thing in gold. Watch a video after the jump!
