Human Default by Gianluca Traina

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
Well this is a good way to kick off the week, the amazing "skin dress" concept from Italian artist Gianluca Traina called Human Default. We were trying to figure out if the work was a painting or sculpture, but from what we can tell, its a photo manipulation. We still approve.

Cavity Colors

Illustration // Monday, July 30, 2012
"Cavity Colors" is the online store of artist and illustrator Aaron Crawford, featuring his grotesque brand of fine art that oozes with neon color and nightmarish menace. Atlanta-based Crawford first started using his unique style of clothing and logo branding for small local hardcore and metal bands, but soon began working for national acts, including The Used, Necro, Suicide Silence, All Shall Perish, and others.

Drawings by Olaf Breuning

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
We have featured Olaf Breuning's work in our magazine in the past (the May 2011 interview is online for you to see here), but the topic of his drawings has not been a main focus. Breuning is known primarily for his practice in installation, sculpture, and photography, but his drawings are a delight as well.

The Louis Vuitton waffle maker by Andrew Lewicki

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 29, 2012
You can now eat luxury (and there are a ton of people who gobble up LV goods like they are waffles, and we are pretty sure that LV makes their low end bags like waffles). OTIS graduate Andrew Lewicki has created one of our favorite sculptures of the year; the Louis Vuitton Waffle Maker. Waffles from here go for $32. Joking. Not really.

The Paintings of Michael Page

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 29, 2012
We have seen the works of Michael Page over the years at Copro Gallery and Shooting Gallery, but this year we have become increasingly impressed by the works of the San Francisco-based painter. Each work is acrylic and oil on canvas, each one appearing to be a discovery of a distant universe or surreal dream brought to canvas.

Street Art // Sunday, July 29, 2012
After a long weekend, plenty of drinks, no sleep, and Monday on the horizon, we can relate to this character painted by Nychos. Although, we have never felt like we had a bunny rabbit exterior.
