The Ring by Arnaud Lapierre

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Versailles has their Hall of Mirrors, and Arnaud Lapierre and the Place Vendôme in Paris, France has their Ring of Mirrors. The various reflections, the viewers placement with in the sculpture, and the construction of The Ring make for a breathtaking experience. This dynamic installation changes the relationships between individuals and the space they are going through.

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Charming Baker, the UK artist that was featured in our January 2012 issue, collaborated with famed British fashion designer (he makes a fantastic sunglass, FYI) Paul Smith on Triumph in the Face of Absurdity, a polished cast aluminium bicycle now on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The work was part of Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion, where leading British fashion designers and visual artists collaborate in a ground-breaking series of works commissioned as part of the London 2012 Festival.

Top 20 Alex Pardee Works

Top List // Friday, July 27, 2012
Alex Pardee went to my high school's rival school. In saying that, I really wish I had some sort of Varsity Blues like story to tell you, but I really don't; I just wanted to make anecdote to lead this list of our Top 20 Alex Pardee paintings...

Early Works by Raymond Pettibon @ Georg Kargl BOX, Vienna

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We are devout Raymond Pettibon fans. His combined use of mark making, text, and a signature comic-book style is the best of its kind. On view at Georg Kargl's BOX exhibition space in Vienna are some of Pettibon's earlier works from the 1980s. If we were in Vienna right now, we would be drooling over some of these drawings. For all you non Viennese readers, go on a vacation and check them out while they're still up.

Umbrella Installation in Águeda, Portugal

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Perhaps the filter on these photos by Patrícia Almeida make these even more eye-catching, but we are showing you this because we think its a great idea for a public art project. In the town of Águeda, Portugal, colorful umbrellas are hung over promenades, giving your walk an interesting hue and something quite lovely to gaze up at.

The Work of Edward Kinsella

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We have posted about St. Louis-born artist Edward Kinsella III on the site before, but we just saw that he posted a series of new works that we think are quite good. Kinsella graduated from Ringling School of Art and Design in 2006 and attended two summers of the Illustration Academy to achieve the level of cohesiveness that his craft displays today. Some of these works are on display at Ghostprint Gallery in Richmond, Virginia through Saturday, July 28.

Alternate Mickeys by Ward Kimball

Illustration // Friday, July 27, 2012
  'Ward’s the one man who works for me I call a genius,' Walt Disney once noted. Ward Kimball was a core animator at the Walt Disney Company between the 1930s and 1970s and was especially noted for his wilder animation style. That eccentricity is visible here in one of Ward's model sheets, where Mickey is drawn in a variety of guises ranging from a flasher to Spielberg's E.T.

Paintings by Michael Dotson

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Michael Dotson's paintings are a myriad assortment of abstract planes in lurid hues, highly stylized and flattened representation, and hard edged abstract space. Each painting occupies a different degree of depth and flatness, presenting a maze of imagined and observed realms. Here are a selection of his more recent works.

Illustration by Mark Fredrickson

Tattoo // Friday, July 27, 2012
Groucho Marx comes face to face with a heavily tattooed dame in this illustration by Mark Fredrickson. 'Fredrickson lives in Tucson, Arizona. He attended Tennessee Temple College in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he studied drawing and photography...'

Kozyndan's Underwater Erotica

Erotica // Friday, July 27, 2012
'kozyndan are husband-and-wife artists who work collaboratively to create highly detailed paintings and drawings for both illustration and fine art. They are obsessed with the ocean and being underwater and hope to someday come to rest at the bottom of the sea and slowly be devoured by deep creatures over many years.' This obsession with the ocean manifests itself not only in the duo's illustrative work but also in an extensive series of underwater nudes.
