Lana Del Ray shot by Neil Krug

Music // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
We have posted about Neil Krug's psychedelic-style photography a bunch before, and have had his work in our print edition. He tends to do these things... shoot album covers and promotional material for some of the best musicians of the moment. Lana Del Rey just released her second LP, Ultraviolence, and Neil shot the cover as well as a bunch of great shots surrounding the album.

Travis Bedel's Anatomical Organics

Illustration // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Mixed media artist Travis Bedel creates stunning collages that merge anatomical imagery with illustrations from science guides and textbooks. By merging human physiology with natural flora and fauna, Bedel creates mash-up visions of organic matter that comment on a common origin. We're really enjoying the decorative quality of these works as well!

Matthew Tammaro

Photography // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Toronto raised, Los Angele-based photographer Matthew Tammaro works with color and composition in a manner that is strikingly unique.

The Polaroids of H.R. Giger

Photography // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Since his passing, a collection of H.R. Giger’s personal polaroid snapshots have been self-published in book form and distibuted by Antenne Press. The artist, best known as the designer who created the creature in “Alien”, often personalized his polaroids by physically scratching them, adding a multidimensionality to the images. Many of Giger’s photographs depict the unique creations that he made for the many movies that he helped make famous. 

The Dark Art of Tim Hon Hung Lee

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Tim Lee’s large-scale ink drawings and paintings on rice paper are, at a first glance, tightly bound with the visual aesthetics of Chinese painting, while simultaneously referencing elements of traditional European art. The conflation of these visual cultures is unsurprising: Lee is a British artist of Chinese descent. But the work does not just amount to a reverential homage to these past cultures.

His imagery resonates in our hearts because, like life, it’s a mix of light and dark, cute and tragic. “It’s funny because it’s sad,” has been a frequent response to his work, but he’s heading in a new direction.
