Surreal Photography by Sergei Bizjaev

Juxtapoz // Saturday, August 11, 2012
Russian photographer Sergei Bizjaev is a champion of the tested and true union between Surrealism and Eroticism. Levitation is a common theme as nude female forms are placed in uncanny situations, creating dream-like scenes that are as unsettling as they are titillating.

Street Art // Friday, August 10, 2012
Italian muralist, Mark Burresi better known as ZED1, just finished painting this new mural for the Urban Samtidskunst event in Oslo, Norway. The mural shows a humorous image of a horse with a strap on his head holding a paintbrush to his face in attempt to imitate a glamorous photo of a unicorn. The quote “Everybody Wants To Be Special” accompanies the piece and the message is rather obvious.

"Outside The Box" Book Preview

Graffiti // Friday, August 10, 2012
In June 2010, France-based artist, Jiem, took a trip to North America where he documented and interviewed many of the prolific artists in the moniker scene, creating a limited edition book titled “Outside The Box” of his findings.

The other morning we showed you a preview of Nicola Verlato's Zero Gravity work at Merry Karnowsky opening on August 11, and Vonn Sumner will be opening striking new works on the same night at MK's space in LA. Sumner’s characters are isolated, absurd, engaging, and somehow quietly common-place.

Nude Body as Landscape by Allan Teger

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 10, 2012
We are quite sure this debate will go undisputed; the nude body, when shot beautifully as someone like Allan Teger can shoot, can be quite impressive. Teger has taken the nude body and transformed it into a landscape, taking the bodies curves, unique characteristics, and shape and made it the playground of miniature figures.

The Glass Bottom Pool 24-Stories Tall

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 10, 2012
We don't normally marvel at swimming pools on this site, but when we saw this one today, we couldn't help but think this was the swimming pool of Bruce Wayne type parameters. At the Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao (yes you read it right, the Holiday Inn) there resides a glass bottomed pool, 24-stories high. Yes, you can see what imminent death looks like while in swim trunks.

Valeria Rey Soto's Abstract Bouquets

Illustration // Friday, August 10, 2012
Originally hailing from Spain, Valeria Rey Soto is an artist and illustrator currently based in Olinda, 'an incredible little town in the Northeast of Brazil, full of art and music and tropical exuberance.' That tropical exuberance comes to life in Soto's colorful pen, marker and watercolor works, in which she delicately weaves floral patterns and abstract geometric configurations. Soto received her degree in Fine Arts from the University of Salamanca, Spain.

Moebius x Alejandro Jodorowsky "Les Yeux du Chat"

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 10, 2012
We have been searching about these works that we saw from the late great Moebius when we were researching his work after his death earlier this year, and we finally found out yesterday that the work was Moebius in collaboration with Alejandro Jodorowsky for a small run comic Les Yeux du Chat. We read that it was made to be a gift to staff and friends of Les Humanoïdes Associés.
