Halloween Edition: Cereal Mascots by Guillermo Fajardo

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Because it's Halloween, we are still trying to help you with costume ideas. From Guillermo Fajardo, "I've always wondered what if the characters from our favorite cereal boxes were actual real life moving and dramatic creatures. So I chose my four favorite characters to join me this adventure: CAP'N, TONY, TRIX and the COUNT."

The Paintings of Christian Rex van Minnen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 31, 2012
"In my work, whether stone and oil, metal and wood, or cardboard and papier-mâché alchemy and automatism are linked together in the cognitive creative process.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
We recently attended the opening of Gary Baseman’s latest exhibition “Nightmares of Halloween's Past” at the newly opened KK Gallery in Los Angeles' historic Chinatown.

Damien Hirst "Verity" Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Finally, we found our Halloween costume. Recently, Damien Hirst's 66-foot bronze sculpture, Verity, was placed/erected/dropped in the coastal town of Ilfracombe, England. That is 66-feet of naked pregnant bronze woman holding a sword aloft standing upon legal books, with half her innards exposed and half her body just fully bronze and naked. For those into language, "verity" means "truth" in Italian.

Graffiti // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Juxtapoz had the honor of flying halfway across the world with SABER this past month for Nuart in Stavanger, Norway, and we weren't sure what sort of installation piece he was gonig to create. Fresh off of SABER's skywriting project over Manhattan days earlier, the LA-based graffiti artist and activist remained in a political mood, and decided to not only create a classic SABER piece, but buff it at the opening in front of hundreds of people.
