Summertime Beaching with Hilo Chen

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 03, 2013
We have absolutely no idea what beach Taiwanese-American artist Hilo Chen goes to create his larger than life hyperreal portraits of woman nude on beaches, but it seems like it could be a nice vacation spot... just sayin. Enjoy the summertime vibes from one of the more accomplished, if not slightly sexy photoreal artists in the world today... 

North Korea Documented by Class Touriste

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 03, 2013
A beautiful set of photos from North Korea and photographer David De Vleeschauwer for Classe Touriste. We aren't sure how cool it is to promote the sensational visuals of a completely totalitarian government, but beautiful travel photography is just that, and the photographer her capture a very interesting, well-orchestrated oppressive society...

"Katharsis": Lucha Libre Documented @ Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
The Katharsis exhibition is comprised with images from the Photography Collection of Fundación Televisa, becoming a documentary and artistic tour through the real and imaginary arenas of Mexican wrestling or lucha libre. Entrenched within pop culture since the 1930s, lucha libre has become for Mexicans an obsession harkening back to gladiator battles and Aztec warriors. The public is not resigned to the role of spectator; but instead, they fervently participate in the complex and boundless theatricality of lucha libre. The exhibition will be on display at the MOLAA in Long Beach through September 15, 2013.

Benjamin Constantine's 'Oysterboy'

Illustration // Friday, August 02, 2013
The slightly disturbing comics of Benjamin Constantine stem from a very, very strange place in Brisbane, Australia. With stories like 'Oysterface', a zine about a boy that was evicted from his river-side apartment 50 miles away from the beach and took it upon himself to evolve into shellfish and live in a dank, wet rock-hole by the sea, Benjamin's reads are generally for Adults Only.

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.
