Its Friday. Maybe you had a long week. Maybe you have been at SXSW on the party circuit and need a glass of water. Maybe you are in NYC and looking for Spring.

Animator Timothy Reckart just made his graduate film, Head Over Heels, viewable online for the first time. A few extras like director’s commentary are included. Head Over Heels, one of the few student films to get nominated for an Oscar, is a story of an upside down relationship. Literally. One person lives on the floor and the other lives on the ceiling.

Street Art // Friday, March 20, 2015
With each billboard altered by Parisian artist, Ox, the surrounding environment is taken in to account and visually played with, sometimes creating a sort of optical illusion. The styles range drastically, but each one appears very well thought out and executed.

Tali Lennox "Layers of Life" @ Catherine Ahnell Gallery, NYC

Juxtapoz // Thursday, March 19, 2015
This show is getting some buzz in the fashion magazine circuit, but here at Juxtapoz are really feeling these portraits by Tali Lennox that make up "Layers of Life," a new exhibition that opens at Catherine Ahnell Gallery in NYC tonight, March 19. A little background research will let you see that Tali is a British-born model, but the works stands out on its own, and growing up with creative parents like Annie Lennox and film producer Uri Fruchtman, she's got some good painterly chops.
