Some lucky girl (Her name is Angela actually) was proposed to by her boyfriend Phillip Burton via a mural on the Shoreditch Art Wall, Great Eastern St, London.

What's the Time?: Matteo Pericoli "To the 5 Boroughs"

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 31, 2013
We are about to close the chapter on our special month of Beastie Boys' coverage in conjunction with our June 2013 Beastie Boys issue, and we thought it was the right time to concentrate on one of the Boys' most personal albums, To the 5 Boroughs. For their first LP in the wake of 9/11, the Beastie's brought in Italian artist and architectural artist, Matteo Pericoli and his brilliant Manhattan Unfurled drawing as the cover. Completed on a 22-foot long scroll, the dedicated work, convering the nuances and beauty of NYC, proved to be the perfect companion to the music of To the 5 Boroughs.

These artists’ respective, and unmistakably distinct, practices explore contemporary representations of the natural and animal worlds.

Music // Friday, May 31, 2013
Well this is a way to get the Friday going. Dvein has art directed and created this great short music video for the band The Vein and their track "Magma" that reminds us that taking drugs, looking at a portrait of Da Vinci, trying to mix paint, and then walking on a frozen tundra does wonders for the imagination.

600 Mount Fuji Sunrises by Yu Yamauchi

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 31, 2013
Yu Yamauchi spent five months a year, for four years living in a hut near the summit of Mt. Fuji. Everyday for those five months he would get up at the crack of dawn to photograph the sunrise from the same location. The result is a stunning series of photographs, aptly titled Dawn, of the Earth waking up. What is most incredible about the series is how different one photo looks from the next. "This space, 'above the clouds,' exists far from the ground where we live our daily lives. It is also a space between the earth and the universe." We may have to watch the sunrise this weekend...
