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.

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: Duane Pitre "Feel Free"

Music // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
On the topic of double exposures, we turn to one of our favorite music videos of 2012, a gem directed by Greg Hunt for musician Duane Pitre and the track, Feel Free. As Hunt says of the video, all shots were double exposed entirely in-camera on super-16mm. The music in this video is a collage-edit comprised of audio taken from the 38-minute studio recording of Pitre's Feel Free composition, from the album of the same name.

Double Exposures by Heitor Magno

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
Double-exposures had a good year in 2012, as the effect was used in abundance on a ton of great projects we have covered throughout the year. As we close it out, we just came across the double exposure works of Brazilian photographer Heitor Magno, who applies many of his double exposed imagery like a tattoo artist on flesh; the effect is seamless, stunning at times.

The Works of So Youn Lee

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
So Youn Lee was born and raised in South Korea, and moved to the United States in 2008 to attend the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Lee’s focus and interest is primarily Surrealism and human behavior, exploring the individual balance between presence and absence, believing that art should deliver unique experiences to the audience that alters their perceptions of the world and of life.

Paintings by Rui Pedro Jorge

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 18, 2012
You know when you look at David Hockney's A Bigger Splash and you get that pure joy of flat color framed into a crisp and sharpened representational picture? While maybe not entirely similar in style, it seems that Rui Pedro Jorge has taken his own flattened approach to a different type of subject. Instead of the clean lines of mid-century Los Angeles, we see fragments of brightly colored wood, real palm trees (not the plastic, Southern California kind), and detritus of an area that does not thrive from the economic success that Beverly Hills might revel in.

The Work of Ryan Heshka

Illustration // Monday, December 17, 2012
Ryan Heshka was born in Manitoba, Canada, and grew up in Winnipeg. Fueled by long prairie winters, he spent a lot of his childhood drawing, building cardboard cities and making super 8 films. Early influences that persist to this day include antiquated comics and pulp magazines, natural history, graphic design and music, movies and animation. Formally trained in interior design, he is self-taught as an artist...

The Looping Bridge in Sarajevo

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
A simple design can help reshape the infrastructure of a city, and in Sarajevo, a stunning looping bridge was recently designed by three Bosnian design students and completed outside the Academy of Fine Arts. The students, Adnan Alagi?, Bojan Kanli? and Amila Hrusti?, won a competition to design the bridge over 5 years ago, and just recently saw their design come to fruition. The bridge is called Festina Lente, which means "make haste, slowly" in Latin.

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: Trash Talk's "Slander"

Music // Monday, December 17, 2012
We are going back through our year of favorite, artistic music videos, and we were huge fans of Juxtapoz friends Jay Howell and Jim Dirschberger's animated, art directed, and illustrated music video for Trash Talk band and the the track, "Slander." After seeing Trash Talk perform over the years through our brothers at Thrasher, we suggest listening LOUD. Enjoy after the jump . . .
