Kids Creating in Swoon's studio

Street Art // Sunday, December 30, 2012
An artist’s studio space such as Swoons must be highly entertaining and overwhelming for a young kid. These two have the potential to be the next art stars; surrounded with brilliant imagery at an impressionable age or maybe they will be completely over art when they become adults.

Best of 2012: Car Crash of Bodies Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Sunday, December 30, 2012
What we wrote on November 8, 2012: At first we didn't have a clue of what we were looking at, but then the piece begins to take shape. You are looking at a depiction of a car crash, as composed by painitng humans and organizing them in the shape of the crash. Australian aritst Emma Hack created the piece with 17 people, and over 18 hours of work. Watch the video...

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: "Paradise" by Wild Nothing

Music // Sunday, December 30, 2012
We found ourselves enjoying simpler, well-executed music videos this year, and although we might have wanted an excuse to get Michelle Williams onto the website this year, but we enjoyed her role in the video for Paradise by Wild Nothing. Directed by Matt Amato, the video features airports, waterfalls, planes, and a good haircut.

Born and educated in Australia, stylist, graphic designer, illustrator and avid fan of all things beautiful, Elisa has spent years working with people to create gorgeous visual landscapes and keepsakes, weaving mediums together with allegorical needle and thread.

Best of 2012: Double Vision by Ho Ryon Lee

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 29, 2012
What we wrote on April 1, 2012: Maybe it's our lingering jetlag in London, but these realistic, blurred motion paintings by Ho Ryon Lee are messing with our heads this morning. A little tease, a nice recreation of a dream state from the Seoul, Korea-based artist.

Music Videos We Liked in 2012: Modeselektor + Thom Yorke "This"

Music // Saturday, December 29, 2012
Okay, we all in agreement that puppets and puppeteering is a little creepy? Of course, I'm going by the Thom Yorke / Modeselektor version of puppeteering, and this brilliantly bizarre video from FutureDeluxe and Andrew Jones for the track "This" that was a standout for us in 2012. Not sure if it is the puppet or puppeteer that takes over and goes beyond the call of reality in this one, but aroudn the 3 minute mark, the world takes a turn.

The Conceptual Works of Aili Schmeltz

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 29, 2012
Los Angeles based conceptual artist Aili Schmeltz recently caught our eye. Her works are a constant process of research and response to natural events and phenomena that captivate and serve as an impetus to weave these seemingly isolated events into a larger contextual tale.

She's Full of Colour: The Works of Julia Mai

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 29, 2012
We have never been to Iceland, but we can only assume, especially with the artistic output from the island nation, that there is a good bit of creative discourse going on amongst the young people. They have standout bands and artists who call Iceland home, and we are mesmerized by the works of Julia Mai and her She's Full of Colour series. Mistakes and freedoms bring the portraits to life, and we appreciate good linework matched with abstraction.

MOMO in Miami

Street Art // Saturday, December 29, 2012
During the mural madness that is Wynwood Walls, Momo painted this easy-on-the-eyes abstract piece. Simple, non-intrusive, and blends into the environment.
