Glimpses of Skin by Amy Martino

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
The minimal, abstractly rendered illustrations of Amy Martino have elements of softly romantic, fashion focused portraiture and strangely embellished accents. Hidden glimpses of naked flesh and almost accidental moments of skin peek through this New York based illustrator and art directors fashion drawings, as she creates her work for both commercial and personal use.

Oil Paintings by Becca Mann

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
On our Monday morning cruise around, we got sucked into the oil painting world of Venice, California based Becca Mann. A mixture of Southern California, a bit of early California and Southwestern style shows up in her paintings, and a few nice ocean/surf scenes in her graphite works are all very well executed. A good start to the week.

The Book Igloo by Colombia's Miler Lagos

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
Just one grab, and this thing will topple. Colombian artist, Miler Lagos, created this "semi book igloo," titled Home, in an installation in 2011 at MagnanMetz Gallery in New York. No glue, nothing holding the books together, just neatly and perfectly stacked so as not to fall over on itself. And with a name like Home, it feels very comforting if you want to read The Hunger Games trilogy amongst other novels.

Street Art Attacks by Filthy Luker

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
Street art, most of the time, should be fun, and we love the interventions that Filthy Luker has come up with. Sea monster arms coming off a building, gigantic pencils scribbling on walls, and trees with eyes are a just a few of fun pieces he has come up with.
