Music Videos We Liked in 2012: Earl Sweatshirt "Chum"

Music // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
When we have been looking back at the music videos we loved in 2012, there is a part of us that consider the artist and track. Earl Sweatshirt had a huge year in our office, whether in collaboration with Flying Lotus, or on the fantastic track, "Chum". Video director Hiro Murai takes the haunting track and makes a simple, beautiful black and white treatment. 

Best of 2012: Ballpoint Stunner from Samuel Silva

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Here is what we wrote at the time: Yes, that is right. This is a ballpoint pen drawing. Samuel Silva, the artist, used 8 different colors taking 30 hours to complete it. No other media. Simply 100 % ballpoint pen. Silva is Portugal-based attorney who does art as a "hobby." I don't think much more needs to be said. Just look at it.

Installation and Public Sculpture by Nicola Yeoman

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Nicola Yeoman moved to London in 2001 and worked at the Guardian as a picture editor whilst studying furniture at Guildhall University. Her combined love of photography and her practical skills as a designer led to an accidental career as a set designer. Now, at first glance at least, it is her eye for the theatrical, honed and developed in this latter role, that most informs her current artworks.

The Works of Rishab Gladiator

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Mysterious, ghastly shadows and duplicated image reflections make up this series of illustrator and designer Rishab Gladiator's work. As a young, New Zealand-based creative, he has come a long way developing the mature content in his portfolio site. He is certainly one to keep your eye on for future endeavors.

Alex Ziv: New Work and Detail

Illustration // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
'My recent work has been a conversation I've been having internally for over a decade. Utilizing a visual rhetoric from my childhood and fantasies of motorcycle subcultures to develop a body of work that demonstrates what I feel, has changed my life for the better as well as how it's changed the world around me. All faculty I have ever had have considered the masters of the hot rod and motorcycle realms despite their disciplines, fine artists...'

Dave Kinsey "Everything At Once" @ Joshua Liner, NYC

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
We had the pleasure of attending the opening reception of Dave Kinsey at the Joshua Liner Gallery. Everything at Once, encompass a vast collection of over thirty powerful and audacious paintings and works on paper. Dave’s images have a strong voice that explores a multilayered condensed chaos where its elements struggle to survive. He creates an interesting tension between textures and organic features, where intricate geometry assembles a beautiful representation of an insane world.

SP.One in Miami

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
When we ran into SP.One at PULSE during Art Basel in Miami, he showed a few pictures of the wall he completed around the block near Wynwood. As we continue to see a number of walls pop up from the recent art related events in Miami, we love this brightly colored letter soup from the New York-based artist and graffiti writer.
