Illustration // Thursday, July 26, 2012
Juxtapoz brings you an exclusive preview of Hannah Stouffer's solo exhibition and installation at Kinfolk Studios, opening this evening in Brooklyn, NY. Exploring the concept of land, escape and nostalgic solitude within a space, Stouffer portrays a post-primeval desire for our natural environment, fully realized through both memory and beingness, executed on a massive 40ft. wall in Kinfolk's project space. Opening reception is tonight, Thursday July 26th from 7-12pm.

Reframe by Adam Scales, Pierre Berthelomeau, and Paul Van Den Berg

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 26, 2012
For the 2012 Festival of Lively Architecture (yes, that is a festival) architects Adam Scales, Pierre Berthelomeau, and Paul Van Den Berg created Reframe, a structure that gives the illusion of an 3-dimensional portal. From above, the structure appears to be a well-contstructed cube, but is when you walk around and experience the piece that the new dimensions begin to appear.

The History of the World, Made with Paper and Fabric

Music // Thursday, July 26, 2012
Kevin Parry has taken on the daunting task of teaching us all about the History of the World, only he has decided it would be best to make an animation and make that animation out of paper and fabric. The animation is the basis for the music video of Kalle Mattson's "Thick As Thieves." When we get to the Jetsons-style future, that is when we are getting excited.

Narrative Illustrations by Patrick O’Leary

Illustration // Thursday, July 26, 2012
"I started out a few years ago after graduating from Loughborough University with a BA in Illustration and have since worked for the likes of Radio Times, Wired and Anorak. The work itself always tries to communicate in as concise a way as possible and often try to use visual metaphors or in jokes to convey a message."

Artwork by Ricardo Cavolo

Tattoo // Thursday, July 26, 2012
Artist Ricardo Cavolo was born in an art studio and says therefore he has been making art since his very first day. He says of his work, "I try to create a special mix creating complex and weird stories using a naif and direct style. My main influences are the outsider art and folk art. But I use music, literature, films, fashion, history, etc., too for creating my work."

We are all music fans here, we all know that visual and audio go together hand and hand for the best possible experience when it comes to music. Here at Juxtapoz, we are huge fans of the Berlin-based band, Efterklang, a very talented group that was chronicled by Vincent Moon in the experimental live music film, The Island. Now, Efterklang is back with a new album, Piramida, and their album teaser is so well made, so inspiring, there may be some chills involved.

FriendsWithYou: "Cloudy"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We saw this last week, and forgot to mention it here on the site! Miami-based artists, Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, aka FriendsWithYou, just created this short animatio, Cloudy, featuring their signature style and minimal character design with a playful, soulful piece. Or as FWY say, "a sweet, visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you'll wish to take over and over again."
