Holytrauma Tattoo

Tattoo // Sunday, September 23, 2012
Holytrauma is the site and work of the ever talented Jondix. A tattoo artist with a pointillistic, metaphysical approach, touching on sacred geometry and spiritual connections, fitting the name Holytrauma quite appropriately. 'Tas taught me how to tattoo and I apprenticed under Mike the Athens and members of his family. I've worked at LTW-Barcelona for the past 7 years and learned a lot about oriental drawing and painting techniques in Thailand and North India.' Jondix states.

New Liqen Mural In Cerdedo, Spain

Street Art // Saturday, September 22, 2012
Often painting in black and white with a keen eye for shading, Liqen’s newest mural in Cerdedo, Spain is the exact opposite, displaying an electrifying color palette. The artist painted a white boar poking its head out of the local fauna with some awkward faced insects hanging around.

Japanese Horror Manga Reviews Part 2

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 22, 2012
Last week I gushed over a few Japanese Horror Mangas in Part 1 of my "I don't know much about these but I love them" article. Well, not much has changed this week, as I still don't know much about the history and facts about the genre...

More Works by Joram Roukes

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 22, 2012
We have been into this work all year. "Joram Roukes' large scaled oil paintings refer to the moral dillemas one may find himself in, viewing today's Western society. Through experience by participation, Roukes reflects not necessarily an opinion on society's flaws in his work, but rather observes and reports on typical western phenomena, leaving judgement up to the viewer, who thereby, establish their own position in these matters."

Stephen Colbert Says It Right: Developments on the Spanish Art Restoration Story

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 22, 2012
Not too long ago, the absurd news story about an uncommissioned fresco restoration gone wrong at  the church of Santuario de Misericordia in Spain went viral.The tragic yet hilarious refurbished image of Christ was more than enough to produce a laugh, and shortly after the incident, the church has become somewhat of a tourist destination as the magnificently horrific painting has attracted many onlookers.

Skin Deep: Photography by Julien Palast

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 22, 2012
Photographer Julien Palast refers to his SkinDeep series as 'a study on the body-object, ephemeral sculptures of the human form. Instant bas reliefs reminiscent of classic imagery.' Palast shrink wraps the human body in brilliant technicolor, at once concealing it while also highlighting its curves and contours. Palast is based in Paris, France.

Saber #DefendTheArts Video

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 21, 2012
As we wrote on the site already, Saber is returning to the skies and his skywriting project, this time in response to Mitt Romney, who stated that he would eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected. After receiving donations, Saber is set to take to the skies above an American city on September 22 or 23, much like he did in LA in response to a mural moratorium. We got involved then, and we are involved now. 

Aryz @ Fundacja Urban Forms Festival

Street Art // Friday, September 21, 2012
After collaborating on a wall with Os Gemeos, Aryz stuck around in Lodz, Poland for the Fundacja Urban Forms Festival and painted another wall. Different from what we are accustomed to seeing, the Spanish artist painted a still life of flowers and a vase. Wonderful choice of color on this particular wall.
