Lettering Pays Tribute to 26 of the Greatest Scientific Innovations

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 20, 2014
We will be the first to admit that our science knowledge is minimal, perhaps that's why we work for an art magazine. Or maybe America doesn't have the best track record for teaching its students math and science. Either way, we wish we remembered more from our science classes and are glad Neil Degrasse Tyson and Netflix are around to occasionally drop some late-night science knowledge. This project from Delhi-based student Khyati Trehan aims to explore scientific diagrams and take form integration to more complex territories. It looks at experimenting with typography, lettering and illustration, paying tribute to the history of science.

New Experimental Hand-Drawn Animation by Jake Fried

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Jake Fried recently posted a new video. The artist creates his experimental animations by slowly adding countless layers to his illustrations.

"Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine" @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery—The Art

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 19, 2014
And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."

Bus Stops in Krumbach, Austria

Design // Monday, May 19, 2014
Bus stops are rather mundane, and turning them into public art projects is something cities have done for years to make them more appealing. Mostly, they just become advertisement centers for upcoming summer blockbusters. In Krumbach, Austia, a selection of renowned international architects turned 7 bus stops into mini-design projects. Some bizarre, some functional, some just a nice place to sit and look at a field.
