With her latest exhibition "Gravitant" at Miscelanea in Barcelona, the artist wants to show that we live in one world, but we live in it in very different ways, playing with everyday objects and spaces, placed in impossible ways to express that many times, the inner dimension of each one of us does not match the mental structures of those around us.

Sage Vaughn "Wildflowers" @ Blueshift Project, NYC

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Sage Vaughn was the cover of our February 2015 issue, our inaugural Beyond the Cover subject, and probably one of our favorite artists working today. As we wrote in February, Sage has changed some things up with his art. He has begun to work in the "Garden," and as we wrote at the time, "these new works are meditations on gardens and our ability to manipulate and control beauty. But other possibilities arise. These works find meaning in the patterns of personal life, the unseen mappings of our universe, and how we find ourselves connecting dots and moving forward without losing a sense of self. There is truth in this process."

Need A Friend? Find A Friend with "The Selfie Arm" by aric snee & justin crowe

Design // Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Sometimes we just want a little light-hearted fun on the site. Have you ever had a nice moment ruined by a selfie stick? Whether it was New Year's Eve in Vancouver or spring break on Maui, the Juxtapoz staff has had a deep fascination with selfie-sticks, even though we don't own one or have ever used one. But if we did, if we ever had to get to that point, we would use this "Selfie Arm" designed by Aric Snee and Justin Crowe. Because if you are going to have to use a selfie stick, do it with no friends and pretend like you have them.

Vintage European Circus Posters

Illustration // Wednesday, April 29, 2015
The modern circus, as we think of it today, was originated by Philip Astley in Britain in 1768. It was the first time a show included horse riding tricks, acrobats, music and clowns in the same venue. These wonderful vintage posters are from the Cirucs Museum in the Netherlands and feature cats, camels, kangaroos, and even a woman in ice.

Illustrations and Animations by Carlín Díaz

Illustration // Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Some of Carlin Diaz's works have organic shapes, others geometrics. Shapes, he always thinks about shapes: of a circle, a flower, the shape of a woman... But, how represent them graphically? It all depends in the personality of each and every shape and the vibe transmitted by them. Every project have his own personality, every project creates his own feeling.
