UTAH & ETHER In Hong Kong Video

Graffiti // Thursday, May 17, 2012
Oink Art Ltd just released another video documenting the globetrotting graffiti duo, Utah and Ether, who are featured in our current June 2012 #137 issue.  This time the couple are exploring the streets of Hong Kong and testing locals to see how much they can get away with.  Watch as they confuse random pedestrians, many stopping to watch and others telling them to stop.

The Chewing Gum Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 17, 2012
This is the true meaning of collaboration, even if it is a little disgusting. Two art schools in the Netherlands, Eindhovense School and SintLucas, collaborated on a chewing gum sculpture (already chewed) that seems to resemble some sort of victory, glory, and/or triumph. Weird, our rival high school used to just thrown milk bombs at us during the football games.

The structure of the Mayan temple is an ode to the ancient civilizations role in the history of chocolate.

More Murals Get the Buff in Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 17, 2012
A delayed mural ordinance is creating confusion and frustration amongst artists, and building owners in Los Angeles. A recent wall painted by Zes, Push, Chris Brand, and Evan Skrederstu was painted over to serve as a backdrop for a production company, while another wall painted by Sand, Vyal, and Cope2 was buffed out by orders of the LAPD saying it was illegal to have a mural or graffiti piece on their property.

The Work of Kukula

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 17, 2012
Kukula's paintings center on feminine, doll-like figures, often surrounded by objects with sometimes clear, sometimes obscure symbolic meaning. The work registers the influences of both classical European art forms and contemporary pop culture. In her figures' poses Kukula recalls classical portraiture, yet the style is manifestly modern and pop-influenced.
