Sever: Captain America & RIP Street Art

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
While a significant amount of graffiti writers currently take to the streets of Detroit with bombing and traditional productions, Sever stopped by dropping two different stand out pieces. The first mural is a jab at street art; Sever painting suited character icons of street art Kaws, Twist, Bansky, Futura, Shepard Fairey, and Os Gemeos carrying a coffin labeled street art.

Escif Channels the Tlatelolco Massacre @ All City Canvas, Mexico City

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
There is no question that Valencia, Spain-based Escif has some of the most politically aware and intelligent street work being produced today. Each piece, even his simple sentences, have a backstory that pertains to the space and place in which he does the public work. This is case with his brilliant piece at All City Canvas in Mexico City, where Escif painted a huge mural on the side of the politically historic Chihuahua apartment building.

Ryan McGinley opened two simultaneous exhibitions at Team Gallery's two locations in SOHO, NYC this past week, Animals and Grids (Atlas Sound playing the roof for the openings... good touch).

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
We love a good handmade, DIY project, especially because we have a fondest for our Juxtapoz Handmade Art book. We just came across Evelin Kasikov's Portrait Project, where the artist is creating 10 stitched portraits, all based on the same grid with different methods and thread thickness. The results are quite cool...

Phlegm's Cubed Canvas in the Woods

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
This concrete cube was oddly positioned in the depths of the woods, and fortunately for U.K.-based artist, Phlegm, the unique canvas worked perfectly for his crouching and falling characters.

Photographs by Brittney Meyer

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
Brittney Meyer photographs food, and from what we've seen it's not exactly in the mode of Sunset Magazine. Instead, she captures food in odd moments of movement, frozen, collaged, misplaced, the fruit and sweets seem to be animated, personified, and almost giddy.

The Work of SIT

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
Artist SIT has been part of the Amsterdam creative scene for many years. Doing action painting, graphic design, advertising and more until he got fed up.
