The Work of Philippines' Ju-Vi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
This is the second time in a week we have shown work with plastic, albeit this series by Philippines' based Ju-Vi looks a bit more like suffering and struggle than our last series. At the moment, there isn't much in the series, but what Ju-Vi has completed is an intense, fascinating body of work. 

Escif: Homage to Yves Klein

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Escif’s newest mural in Valencia, Spain pays homage to the recent event of Spain's King, Juan Carlos falling flat on his face and to the French Noveau Relisme artist, Yves Klein. Escif draws a humorous correlation to Klein’s famous piece “Leaping into the Void” and the photo of Carlos falling to the floor.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Sego just sent us these pictures of a new wall in Monterrey, Mexico to our team at Juxtapoz Latin America. The new piece features a character with natural signature elements like butterfly wings, branches, and an entomological style often used by the Mexican artist.

Moneyless @ Fame Festival 2012

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Last summer when we headed to Grottaglie, Italy for Fame Festival, one of the artists that stood out to us was Moneyless. His geometric, abstract murals and sculptures were both a surprise to see and hidden gems throughout the town. Of all the works around town, Moneyless made you think twice about function and its existence amogst the town. It looked seemless, but also mysterious. This year, Moneyless is back, and Fame has a nice video of his progress, as well as the making of his prints for Studiocromie.

Saner in Oaxaca for Guelaguetza Celebration

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Just this past week, Mexico City-based Saner was in Oaxaca for the 2012 edition of the Guelaguetza, where he painted a few murals that, as our Juxtapoz Latin America colleagues noted, looked beautiful along with the landscape of Oaxaca. As Wikipedia is teaching us, Guelaguetza is an annual cultural event in Mexico that takes place in the city of Oaxaca, centering on traditional dancing in costume in groups, and includes parades complete with indigenous walking bands, native food, and statewide artisanal crafts such as prehispanic-style textiles.

Barbara Kruger: Belief+Doubt @ Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum, Washington DC

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Beginning on August 20, 2012, visitors to the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC can experience the transformative installation by influential and renowned artist (and November 2010 cover artist) Barbara Kruger. “Belief+Doubt” covers the lower-level lobby entry to the museum bookstore, about 6,700 square feet of surface—including walls, floor and escalator sides—covered in text-printed vinyl, surrounding viewers with lettering up to 12 feet high in a high-contrast color scheme that has become Kruger's custom of red, white and black.

Edwin Deen: Rainbow Spray Paint Sprinkler

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
Dutch artist Edwin Deen's spray paint sprinkler system that shoots rainbow colors at white walls in order to make a better drippy day has been circulating throughout the web over the past year, and we finally did some investigation about a video of the work, and came across it this morning. Now, if you ever need your bedroom, or perhaps your child's bedroom, covered in rainbows, we have somebody for you to commission. The effect is quite wonderful.

Works of Frank Stockton

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
This isn't the first time we have shown the works of Frank Stockton, and it probably won't be the last: "My work evolved very quickly both during school and after I graduated... Since the unifying element in all of my work has been my drawing, it was only a matter of time until I found a way to add color that was exciting to me. After lots of experimentation..."

LEGO Olympics 2012 Aquatic Center

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
It could be center to some, centre to others. Either way, if you are going to host the Olympics, you better have some LEGO models ready for us all to see as well. In this case, a model of the 2012 Olympics Aquatic Center was built for the LUG Showcase in the Stratford LEGO store, next to the London 2012 Olympics park.
