Patterns of Nature by Kris Tate

Illustration // Monday, September 09, 2013
Kris Tate is a freelance illustrator based in the UK who was born in Guatemala, where her native culture inspired her love of geometrical shapes, bright colors, and wild animals, with whom she strongly identifies. Using a bold palette and clean, simple forms over existing images, Tate's style is reminiscent of the late 80's and early 90's without being derivative, and her designs have been recognized and sold by the likes of Urban Outfitters, Blood is the New Black, Ohh Deer, and Deny Designs.

Finland-based artist, designer, and sculptor Marco Casagrande constructed four steel figures of men and placed them on a tidal short by Kinmen Island in Taiwan. Titled, Oysterman, the installation appear to be silhouettes of men standing on stilts as the tide rolls in.

The Work of Boo Saville

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 09, 2013
Boo Saville creates artwork out of her interests of the human body, odd photographs and scientific or archeological textbooks. Most of her pieces explore subjects who look to be victims of something bizarre, which intrigues the observer in, "Making the illusion of something felt like looking through a lens at the world, cold and at a distance. So, yes the rejection...I wanted to make work, which was more intimate and that directly addressed the viewer."

The Work of David Marc Grant

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 09, 2013
David Marc Grant, a 3rd generation San Francisco native, is a very rare bird indeed. He paints candy colored dystopian landscapes. Growing up in the Fog City in the 80s, he was happily exposed to genres of utopian science fiction and fantasy, the kind that inspired extreme spectacle and cautionary tales of environmental disaster. A student of the wild school of dichotomies, and of the prestigious San Francisco Art Institute, Grant’s humor and history influence his interest in fictitious world building...

Paintings by Melanie Authier

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 09, 2013
'Melanie Authier's paintings bring together visual contradictions into one imaginary space. By drawing upon the histories of abstraction and the strategies of representation, she presents improbable environments. A sense of disorientation comes about through the way in which color, texture, line and shape compete for room within the canvas.  Each work presents a brimming jostle of oppositions that the viewer is invited to bring into a certain order.'

Annette Jung of Talking Animals animation studio has reenacted the beginning to MIchael Jackson's "Thriller" video in stop-motion LEGO. By using the bricks as pixels, Jung even used the bottom side of the bricks for slight changes in darkness and layered them to create depth. Would love to see the whole video! Watch it after the jump...

Street Art // Sunday, September 08, 2013
