Magritte as 8-Bit... SuperMagritte.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
I think from time to time we can expose a little fun, Internet art on the site. So whoever is behind this Tumblr/Blog page dedicated to 8-bit Mario-izing Rene Magritte's famous surreal paintings, we say bravo. Mostly what this work does for us is wish we had a Nintendo in the office to play Super Mario Bros 2. That one was our favorite. 

"Adrift": A Timelapse by Simon Christen

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 25, 2013
Living in San Francisco, spending summers enclosed by a thick layer of fog, many of us in the Juxtapoz office have a love/hate relationship with nature's blanket. But there is such a beauty to the way fog moves through the Golden Gate and covers the surrounding hills and City, and this timelapse really does capture the romance of fog.

David Choe: Afghanistan Tour Diary, the Outtakes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
On newsstands now, David Choe's Afghanistan Tour Diary graces our August 2013 issue, with photography by Estevan Oriol. To call these "outtakes" is a little misleading; these are all intriguing and fantastic photos from one of the leading photographers in the world. But we couldn't fit everything into the print edition and now have a look at some of the extras that missed print. If you haven't read the Choe feature, we suggest going and getting the issue right now. If you are interested in Afghanistan and all it has to offer, well, try and go there, or at least look at the Choe travel guide.

In L.A.: Push @ Known Gallery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery for the opening reception of “Adaptation” and installation by Push. As a part of the Game Changer series, SIMPLE Mobile told Push they wanted to give him a chance to do something he always wanted to do with his art without restriction. Push’s first choice was a to do a three-dimensional installation piece that stretched his skills and the ideas of what people thought of when it came to muralists that cut their teeth on the streets of Los Angeles. Photos and more after the jump…

School Night x Ace Hotel x Juxtapoz Present "Summer School" @ Ace Hotel, Palm Springs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
As we did last summer, Juxtapoz is teaming up with the Ace Hotel Palm Springs for a little summer hangout session in the desert. The very hot, pool-oriented, modern architecture desert setting, if you will. Last year Sage Vaughn and Father John Misty headlined the weekend, and this year, Jux is lucky to participate with School Night and Ace Hotel's "Summer School" art and education program, featuring artist-taught workshops with Kozyndan, Michelle Valigura, Marcelo Gomes, Kayla Mattes, and a special print pop-up shop hosted by Poster Child Prints.

This past weekend at Comic-Con, our founder, Robert Williams, saw his long-overdue, and long in process documentary, Mr. Bitchin';, take home the honor of "Best Documentary at Comic-Con Int’l Independent Film Fest." A pretty great feat consider all the competition. Now, for all our friends in Southern California and beyond, you can see a special presentation of Mr Bitchin' at the famed Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on July 30, at 7:30pm. And for all our readers, we have a special offer for you...

Unreal/Hyperreal Paintings by Damian Loeb

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
We are still trying to figure this artist out, because I have spent a good bit of time staring at this image above and can't wrap my head around the fact that this is a painting. Not in that, oh, it should be a photograph way, but just the immense skill at color and shade that Damian Loeb must have. All of these paintings, depicting intimate moments in bedrooms, either nude or minimally clothed, are just breathtaking to take in. 

Time Of War: Photography by Olivier Valsecchi

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
We are loving this beautiful series of nude photographs by French photographer, Olivier Valsecchi. Capturing both motion, skin, and the surreal nature of the materials that the bodies are brushing off, the works almost appear to be traveling through time, bringing with them materials from outer space. 

Rene Almanza: "Gloves"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America just posted this fantastic video of Monterrey, Mexico-based Rene Almanza working on some experimental painting techniques, mainly with the use of gloves. As you can see in the video, the gloves allow for an extremely fluid motion in Almanza's paintings, taking his already motion technique and allowing him to move the characters body and expressions without having to actually imply their movement. The end results are stunning...
