More Finger Paintings and a Video from Troilo

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 03, 2013
This morning we bring you some more finger paintings and a process video from Milan-based artist Troilo. Troilo tries to express the uncomfortable condition of being trapped in a void where the rules of society don't apply. There are no dresses, colors, or objects, and we are liberated from useless accessories. His style developed one day, when attempting to translate his drawings into paintings. He found himself using his fingers when he couldn't find any brushes.

What's The Time?: Beastie Boys on Being Stupid

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
We are now officially in Beastie Boys month in conjunction with our very special June 2013 issue, and we kick off the festivities with this fantastic animated treatment of a classic BB's interview from 1985. PBS' Digital Studios took the interview and put it through their "Blank on Blank" series, and the result is the Beastie Boys animated by Patrick Smith, saying things like "There's a way we talk and it includes profanity. We never figured we'd be arrested for it." Enjoy!

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
Let's face it. Chances are you didin't make it to Tokyo for the opening of KAWS' new exhibition, Ohhh..., at Murakami's Kaikai Kiki space. It opened tonight, but in Tokyo time, that means its already open. So, if you didn't make it, we have a little into some of the works that are on exhibit, and as you can see, they are some of the cleanest, bold acrylic works you will ever see. 

Nicola Verlato: The Making of "Burzum"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 02, 2013
This past December 2012, we featured the works of Nicola Verlato in our print magazine. Because he was so articulate and detailed in his expression, we asked him to interview fellow Italian artist Fulvio di Piazza for our April 2013 issue. Because he was so good at that, when Verlato sent us a video of his process for creating the magnificent painting, Burzum, we want to show people how a painter really gets down.
