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 . . .

ESPO's Creative Outlet in Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
Anyone feeling the holiday gift-buying panic yet? We sort of suffered through some high-tension shopping this past weekend, but if we were in Brooklyn, perhaps we would have found some peace. Steve Powers, 2x Juxtapoz cover artist, just opened a new storefront, ESPO's Creative Outlet. Residing at 4th Ave and Bergen St, in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn, the shop has a range of in-store only prints, along with ESPO-related books, catalogs, ephemera and a raincoat or two.

The Works of Luca Mantovanelli

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
Luca Mantovanelli is a young Italian architect and illustrator. His mixed media illustrated portraits combine a bizarre duo of images of male youth and colored, exotic birds. There is a strange eroticism to his images that I'm not quite sure how to place, but somehow the elements in his portraits complement each other.

Swampy: Under the Bridge

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
We never really want to classify someone like Swampy into “street art” or “graffiti” or anywhere for that matter. He kind of transcends all of them, much like a majority of artists working in the streets these days. In this picture, he’s the guy doing the roller on a sunny day in California under a bridge.
