Nudes by Antoine de Villiers

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 19, 2012
South Africa-born Antoine de Villiers creates stark, stripped down oil paintings of nude subjects. In her own words: 'Nude figure studies are certainly one of my most preferred themes. To me, there is nothing more honest and serene. Every single figurative piece I create, I attempt to approach with the highest respect for the human form.'

Sweet Tattoos from Raphaël Trovato

Tattoo // Sunday, November 18, 2012
Raphaël Trovato is a French tattooer who works out of Fresh Ink Tattoo in Mulhouse, France. Mixing traditional imagery with some off-beat Pop-ish designs, Raphaël incorporates bright jewel tones into all of his shading that give his tattoos a wonderfully graphic and saccharine vibe. We have a gallery of some of our favorites--from pipe-smoking cats to more ethereal ladies--after the jump.
