Street Art // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
An influential force in the world of street art, Blu recently completed this provocative new mural in Madrid, Spain. The imagery depicts a train made up of army tanks, cars, shopping carts filled with consumer items, oil barrels, and money being shoveled into the hybrid house engine, excelling towards the edge of a cliff. The artist’s grim view on our current state of affairs is haunting and undeniably true.

New works by Sweden's Markus Åkesson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
We saw these new works by Swedish fine artist, Markus Akesson, yesterday, and they stayed in the back of our mind's all night, so we figured that must be a sign. The new paintings, most of them shown here, are set to be on display at the VIDA Museum in Borgholm, Sweden, from August 18 to September 30, 2012. The works are all oil on linen.

New Mattias Adolfsson Sketchbook Works

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
It is no secret, we love the illustrative works of Swedish artist, Mattias Adolfsson. And, again, no secret that one of our favorite past times is looking in the Moleskines of our favorite illustrators, because, sometimes, that is where the real pirate's treasure lies. For Adolfsson, this is no exception. 

The Work of Philippines' Ju-Vi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
This is the second time in a week we have shown work with plastic, albeit this series by Philippines' based Ju-Vi looks a bit more like suffering and struggle than our last series. At the moment, there isn't much in the series, but what Ju-Vi has completed is an intense, fascinating body of work. 

Escif: Homage to Yves Klein

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Escif’s newest mural in Valencia, Spain pays homage to the recent event of Spain's King, Juan Carlos falling flat on his face and to the French Noveau Relisme artist, Yves Klein. Escif draws a humorous correlation to Klein’s famous piece “Leaping into the Void” and the photo of Carlos falling to the floor.

Moneyless @ Fame Festival 2012

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Last summer when we headed to Grottaglie, Italy for Fame Festival, one of the artists that stood out to us was Moneyless. His geometric, abstract murals and sculptures were both a surprise to see and hidden gems throughout the town. Of all the works around town, Moneyless made you think twice about function and its existence amogst the town. It looked seemless, but also mysterious. This year, Moneyless is back, and Fame has a nice video of his progress, as well as the making of his prints for Studiocromie.
