Espo on Love

Juxtapoz // Sunday, August 19, 2012
Because we are such admires of Steven Powers’ work in general, we thought we would share this little saying the artist painted a while back.  “Everything is Shit...Except your love.”  For one of us, this sentiment hits home, right now. It has been one of those months.

Ornate Works by René Campbell

Illustration // Sunday, August 19, 2012
  Impressive works by this young talent, 18 year old René Campbell.  Campbell's black and white skulls and animal portraits are detailed with swirling baroque accents, all rendered in staggeringly fine linework. She works both traditionally and digitally and is based in Adelaide, South Australia.

Beveled Hindue

Graffiti // Sunday, August 19, 2012
Hindue’s go the freight game all sewn up right now and with each new train the quality is raised.

Crinoline Flowers by Daryl Banks

Erotica // Sunday, August 19, 2012
  Fashion photographer Daryl Banks seeks to "simulate the intricate beauty of [macro flower photography] with crinolines, legs and hosiery." The resulting series lies somewhere between nature photography and upskirt shots of can-can dancers (with a dose of the Wicked Witch of the East for good measure). Banks is based in Toronto, Canada.

Tattoos by Piranha

Tattoo // Sunday, August 19, 2012
  Juan Manuel Sancho, also known by his moniker Piranha, is a self-taught illustrator, designer and tattooist. As a child, he put together his own monster magazines and drew on any surface he could get his hands on. Sancho's childhood fascination with monsters is evidenced in his tattooing, traditional skulls becoming zombie heads and horses sprouting multiple eyeballs. He is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Nychos x Flying Fortress in Bristol and more

Street Art // Saturday, August 18, 2012
The See No Evil Festival in Bristol, UK has been seeing wonderful work from around the globe including this newest addition from Nychos and Flying Fortress.  The two collaborated on a huge mural showing a Jukebox character riding a winged skeleton monster. Love the usage of eyeballs as reins!  And a “brainy” Nychos letter piece was painted during this visit as well.

Opening: Steven Harrington @ Known Gallery, LA

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 18, 2012
There is no secret that we love the work of Southern California's Steven Harrington. We had a fantastic feature of his work in the magazine in October 2011, and now as he gets prepared to open his InsideOut exhibition at Known Gallery tonight, August 18, we take a look at the catalog for the show published by Nieves. 

Aryz in Progress in Copenhagen

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 18, 2012
Aryz is currently in the process of adding color to some bare brick in Copenhagen, Denmark. The artist is participating in one of the many street art festivals going on around the globe, this one being the Galore Festival. From here, it looks like an image of a man getting choked by a woman, although it could be a passionate hug from behind? Completed mural coming soon!

The Work of Thomas Burns

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 18, 2012
Thomas Burns grew up in Gainesville, Florida and received a BFA in graphic design from the University of Florida. Artistically he remained unfulfilled until eventually he created his own freelance studio in 2007. He is currently finishing his MFA in illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta and producing beautifully textural and witty illustration work.

Video: "Got The Fever" by Meyhem Lauren featuring NY Writers

Graffiti // Saturday, August 18, 2012
I watched this video a couple years back and recently stubled on it again. The beat has that old school feel and there is an exceptional lineup of New York writers caught in action. Featuring, Nesm, Desa, Dceve, Marty, Cecster, HSO, Toper, Wane, Cope, Jaes, Shaun, Remo, and many more. Worth a watch.
