Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
Boogie has always been on our radar as one of the great contemporary photographers that we get the chance to cover, with both his street photography and now fine art experiments always being an interesting and intense take on the art of the genre. Today, he sent us images from his Demons series, a collection of 11 x 14 inch wet plate collodion images on black plexiglass.

Early 1900s Humor Magazine Illustrations by Franz Wacik

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
We always enjoy old illustrations and are always so fascinated by humor and comics from different periods. Franz Wacik was an Austrian artist who was especially devoted to children and young adult book illustrations. This particular series of illustrations were for the humor magazine Die Muskete and circa 1906-1911.

Christopher Coppers' Sculptural Magazine Pieces

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
We are both impressed and slightly bummed we hadn't thought of this before, although we're sure we wouldn't have done such a great job. Artist Christopher Coppers takes regular magazines and often based on both the cover and the content inside, will meticulously cut out, or fray, or fold the pages in some way to turn them into meaningful pieces of art! Even sometimes making art out of Art magazines!

MOCAtv's First "The Art of Punk" Episode Focuses on Black Flag

Music // Friday, June 14, 2013
In this excellent debut episode of their "The Art of Punk" series, MOCAtv dissects the art of the legendary Black Flag, from their iconic four bars symbols, to their coveted and now collectable gig flyers, singles, and band t-shirts. The distinctive Indian ink drawn image and text featured on most of these was all by none other than Raymon Pettibon. We've been on a art in music kick lately due to our special Beastie Boys issue and this is a wonderful video on the group's commitment to art, featuring interviews with Raymond Pettibon as well as Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Henry Rollins.

Bjork's "Atmospheric Reentry" Headpiece by Maiko Takeda

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
The person singing underneath that crazy, incredible looking headpiece is Bjork. Surprised? Probably not, if you showed us a picture of a woman singing in a crazy outfit that would probably be our first guess too. The headpiece though, was designed by Maiko Takeda and is one of a series of similar pieces entitled Atmospheric Reentry. Maiko grew up in Tokyo and moved to London to study Jewelry Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She is currently working on her Masters in Millinery at the Royal College of Art.
