Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 05, 2013
We were browsing the interwebs (we do a lot of that) and happened upon a photograph of Thomas Heatherwick's UK Pavilion from the Shanghai Expo 2010.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Sometimes the idea of sticking a another boring cube into our coffee gets us down. Luckily, a designer by the name of Snow Violet created these brilliant skull and cross bones cubes so we can make our morning routine of staring into our coffee cup a bit more sinister... (if we can figure out where to get some)

Installations and Public Art by Clemens Behr

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 05, 2013
This morning we take a look at he work of Berlin-based artist Clemens Behr. Clemen's process "begins with space, which acts as a basis for planning." According to the artist, "the space defines the colors and shapes, as well as any fixing or mounting possibilities and the dimensions of the piece." Once he has an idea or composition visualized, he usually begins by painting cardboard and screwing together a wooden frame to fix the cardboard to.

Studio Visit: Gris1 in Lyon, France

Graffiti // Tuesday, June 04, 2013
One of our European contributors, Butterfly, recently heading out to the studio of graffiti artist Gris1 in Lyon, France to see what the artist have prepared for the rest of his 2013 calendar year. From the looks of it, he has lots of trains, spraycans, post-its, paintings, sketches, and notes coming into fruition. We have covered Gris1 a ton on our site and in our Graffiti Department in recent years, as well as a bunch of French writers, and we were very appreciative that Gris let us into his space. 

Music Video: Breakbot "Baby I'm Yours" watercolor extravaganza

Music // Tuesday, June 04, 2013
Music videos have become a prominent part of what we do here on the Juxtapoz site because a ton of artists we know and enjoy have been getting work in animating, stop-motiong, or directing some of the best videos out there. We haven't seen a good watercolor video this year, or ever, but this video for Breakbot's "Bay I'm Yours" single is comprised of over 2000 individual watercolor paintings, composed by Irina Dakeva at Wizz Productions. For you counting at home, 2,000 is more than a lot.
