Layered Portraits by Nerhol

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
The photograpy collective Nerhol's (Yoshihisa Tanaka and Ryuta Liada) latest project consists of piles of photographs rather than a single image. Their subjects sat for three minutues while they took pitures and then the prints were stacked and cut to reveal the layers, resulting in a warping of the subject's subtle movements.

Our very good friend, Herbert Baglione, who was the cover of our Brazil issue in 2009, will be opening a new solo show, Obituary, with the team down in Mexico City who runs both FIFTY24MX and Juxtapoz Latin America. As you know, for over the past 10 years, Baglione has become of the Brazil's leading contemporary artists, working both in street murals, installation, and fine art, with traits that illuminate existential dilemmas and the perils of modernity and isolated urban life.

Paintings by Eric Thor Sandberg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 14, 2013
This morning we take a look at the paintings of Washington DC-based artist Eric Thor Sandberg. We're not sure if his middle name is a nickname or if it was given to him by awesome parents. Either way, we like it. Speaking about his work in Surface magazine, Eric says, "I joke and say that I paint naked people doing horrible things to each other. But the real answer is that my paintings are little allegories, sometimes that relate to my life, other times that are random. I'm not really into weird, horrible things."  

New Liqen Mural in Chichester, U.K.

Street Art // Tuesday, May 14, 2013
With assistance from Namaz and a lift, Liqen painted this incredibly dark, highly detailed mural for a local street art festival in Chichester, U.K. We are curious as to how long it will take for someone to complain about the “negative imagery” and organize a group of people to get it painted over. You know it is inevitable with work like this, but we hope we are wrong.

3D Paper Animal Sculptures by José Suris IV

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Brooklyn-based artist Jose Suris IV created these awesome masks and sculptures out of paper! Despite looking like real fur, the animals were constructed out of paper, Styrofoam, wirefoam, and paperclay. Suris hangs his sculpted creatures and masks on displays just like a taxidermist. His inspiration? Pretty much everything: Internet videos, cartoons, Zelda, Pokémon’s Evee, stories...
