Graffiti // Thursday, August 15, 2013
This is a message to support a close member of the extended Juxtapoz family, so we will leave it in the words of cause..."The joeymerz benefit all started with an email... "Hey, just wanted to let you know that I was diagnosed with MS." This chilling email was sent to me from my long time friend, painting partner, crewmate, and basically my little brother."

This August, Tel Aviv-based artist Know Hope makes his solo debut at Lazarides Rathbone with a new exhibition, The Abstract and The Very Real. Addressing the human condition and its collective social existence through a series of unique works and a site-specific installation, the exhibition questions the ubiquitous notion of the "abstract and the very real", the weight and burden of which though universally apparent is often unidentifiable to most.

Tomás Saraceno's "Solar Bell"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 15, 2013
Tomas Saraceno, the man behind some of our favorite installations, is working on yet another incredible project. This one came from the idea of creating a building so light that it could take off and elevate into the air. Whether it is a flying sculpture or a flying observation tower, the vision is to create a structure that will float up with the wind and that people can occupy. Awesome! Watch a video and see photos of early models and prototypes after the jump!

Music // Thursday, August 15, 2013
The new video for Just Blaze & Baauer's latest track "Higher" is one of the most beautifully shot we have seen in a while. However, this is not surprising considering renowned director Nabil is the man behind it. The video tells the the epic story of a group of Kalaripayattu warriors (martial artists) and a spirited young kid in Kerala, India, who leads his fellow child vigilantes to fight a drunk bully. 

Man Builds Mountain Villa on Beijing Apartment Building

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 15, 2013
The story of a Beijing doctor spending the last 6 years building a mountain villa on the roof of his 26-story apartment building with no permission has been making its rounds on the web recently. We can't even begin to comprehend how he managed to get those materials onto the roof...elevators? The addition covers 1000 square meters of rooftop in artificial rocks, real trees and grass. After residents filed complaints for 6 years about leaks, heavy machinery, and noise, the government finally decided to intervene and give the man a whole 15 days to remove it.

Tyrus Wong "Water to Paper, Paint to Sky" @ Disney Family Museum, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
A kite springs from a flat dimension into billowing buoyancy, flight or failure, but always guided by aspiration. Tyrus Wong flew his first kite at age seven in 1917, designed his first in 1978, and at age 102 still has the world on a veritable string. Muralist, illustrator, calligrapher and sketch artist, Wong will be celebrated at the Walt Disney Family Museum show Water to Paper, Paint to Sky. The show opens August 15, 2013. Naturally, I had questions for the man who worked on both Bambi and The Wild Bunch.
