Music // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
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."

Olafur Eliasson "Little Sun" @ Tate Modern, London

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Whether creating waterfalls along the East River in NYC, a rainbow panorama viewing room at the Aros Museum in Aarthus, Denmark, or a beautiful one-way color tunnel like the one we saw at SFMoMA, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is one of the most heralded contemporary artists working today. In short, he is like a scientist who happens to make incredibe, immersive, experience-based art. Just in time for the Olympics, Eliasson will open Little Sun at the Tate Modern.

Back Talk: A Conversation with Chris Johanson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Chris Johanson remains one of our favorite enigmas in all of contemporary art, and we like to keep it that way. He will be opening a new exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery in New York City on September 14, 2012, and because that seems enough of an occasion to send one of our favorite artists a list of questions, we did just that.

HORFE All Over in Vardo, Norway

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We stumbled on these photos of a few of the walls Horfe has been working on in Vardø, Norway. From what we see here, it looks like Horfe went the extra mile, with multiple highly detailed murals. Not the best or most detailed photos, however it give you an idea of the amount of work he has been creating there. Better photos real sooooon.

The Works of Joram Roukes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We found ourselves this morning checking into what former Juxtapoz cover artist, Charlie Isoe, was up to, and we came acroos some mind-blowing paintings by Dutch artist, Joram Roukes. The oil paintings mix a bit of contemporary content with a mixture of pop-culture symbolism and stream of consciousness application. Roukes says of his work that they "refer to the moral dillemas one may find himself in, viewing todays western society."

The Magazine Rack Chair

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
As you know, we are magazine people. We print a magazine, we read magazines, we love the physicality of it all. So when we saw this Magazine Rack Chair, designed by South Korean designer, Seung Han Lee, we were sold in the idea. A clever way to store, display, and house your magazine collection, and from the looks of it, quite easy to get to your rags when you are just sitting around.
