Anuschka Blommers & Niels Schumm: The Future of Sex

Photography // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
If you’ve picked up a fashion magazine since the late 1990’s you will undoubtedly have stumbled across the photographic work of Bloomers & Schumm. The Amsterdam duo were never intent on launching their practice into the world of fashion editorial, nevertheless this has arguably been the most predominant arena in which their work has excelled.

Hyperreal Graphite Drawings by Monica Lee

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
One of the things that puts a good hyperreal drawing in context is a process photo. I think most of the time, myself included, think that perhaps an artist may be pulling some digital trickery in their amazing illustrations, and Malaysia-based artist Monica Lee does these fanastic graphite drawings, but also shows her process along the way. 

Nosego "Open Channels" @ Thinkspace Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Concurrently on view at Thinkspace are new works by Philadelphia based artist Yis Goodwin, aka Nosego, in Open Channels. A highly accomplished fine artist, illustrator, and street artist, Nosego’s works are visionary.

Imaginatively beautiful and strangely grotesque, Nosego captures a myriad of conflicting...

The San Francisco streets as seen by Troy Holden

Photography // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
A self-proclaimed “snapshot photographer”, Troy Holden walks miles and miles of San Francisco to create his street snapshots. Holden’s style is graphic and balanced, with each composition wonderfully crafted around characters moving through their environment. These bold portraits are grounded in quiet moments where seemingly empty sidewalks hold only the subject, Troy, and his camera.

LAMU by Mathieu Grimard

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Enjoy this striking music video directed by Mathieu Grimard. Titled LAMU featuring the musical talent of Montreal-based band Rivver, where individual stories are strung together seen through various façades. As described, “every person and every eye is shown behind a surface: glass, plastic, water, etc. It’s an outside-in view on all these characters.” Filmed from careful angles with a stunning view on each framed face, Grimard creates a surreal emotional dreamland that beautifully unifies and reflects off each other.

Animal Body Art by Gesine Marwedel

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 15, 2014
From a flamingo to a pelican, an owl to a swan Gesine Marwedel paints these animals and more on nude figures. After perfectly positioning the models limbs, the soft lines and brush strokes come together to complete the shape of each creature. Each figure is then photographed as partners and individuals hold a nude, yoga-like, comparably contortionist pose to create the illusion of the natural characteristic curvatures of the animals. Against a background of a black or white negative space, the images jump out at you as if the animals were in their natural habitats.
