Nacho Guzmán for Opale's "Sparkles and Wine"

Music // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Remember when we just had movie previews at the theater and music videos on MTV? Now we got Daft Punk buying ad space on SNL to tease the costumes they are going to wear in support of their new album, and album teasers that are more creative than half the music industry. Nacho Guzman has created this fantastic teaser for French band Opale, and their new LP, Sparkles and Wine. The effect of the lighting shows you how much a face can change with shadows, color, and some good ol' LED lights.

Ken Yokogawa's 7000 Wooden Cube Structure is Held Together by Hooks

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
We're not sure we would want to stand under this installation of 7000 wooden cubes held together by 36,0000 screw-in hooks by Architect and Professor Ken Yokogawa. Fascinated by the way metal chain armor retains its shape and form, Ken spent two years researching and building his structure, that he calls an inverted question-cube, at Nihon University of Science and Technology.

Wies Preijde's Fiber-woven Walls

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Netherlands-based artist Wies Preijde's latest installation uses a series of hand-woven walls and combination of lines, colors, views and passageways to give the observer the idea of walking through a transparent home. The varied vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines coalesce into rooms, windows, and other imaginary environments and passages. Visitors can move about the corridors and hallways of the slightly transparent fibre-woven walls.

Paintings by Ian Davis

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
We are really enjoying New York-based artist Ian Davis' paintings this morning. Reminding us of some sort of totalitarian, communist propaganda, Davis' work focuses on "maleness, whose omnipresence, ineffectiveness and herd instinct he conjures up in small identical figures..."

More Anamorphic Installations by Bernard Pras

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Last week we posted an anamorphic (the art of stacking objects to create a huge 3D sculpture) portrait installation by Bernard Pras where he filled an entire room with found objects, creating a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui. This morning we take a look at more of the French artist's impressive large-scale compositions.

Andreas Franke's 'The Sinking World' @ An Underwater Gallery: 24.27 N, 81.44 W

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 18, 2013
Ever been scuba diving and thought to yourself, "You know what? All these beautiful fish are nice and all, but I would like to see some art down here!" Well, Andreas Franke's photographs are on display on the sunken UGNS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, 27 meters underwater. The photographs depict everyday activities, such as doing laundry or riding a horse in a dress, underwater, and in our opintion, are pretty cool.

"Shave It": Animated short film by 3dar Studios

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 17, 2013
With the chaos of magazine deadlines upon us, we took a few minutes today to enjoy this nice animated short created by 3dar Studios, an American and Argentina-based animation studio. If we told you that this piece let's you follow a monkey into space and beyond, and that it was a true story, would you watch it? You should watch it. 

New piece by Sobekcis

Graffiti // Wednesday, April 17, 2013
When we look at pieces painted by Sobkcis, it makes us think about how far spray paint has come and how rich and vibrant the colors are now.
