"No Globes" for Climate Change Snow Globe by Dorothy

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 25, 2012
You may be asking yourself, why would I want a snow globe with a silo or 4 in the middle? That doesn't seem really wintery or nice to have out when grandma comes over. UK-based agency Dorothy created this No Globes snow globe to protest the building of dirty coal-fired power stations. Shake that globe, and black, disgusting dirt-filled remnants come out of the towers.

The Work of Japan's ? (Hi)

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 25, 2012
The work of Japanese artist ? (Hi) is nothing short of mesmerizing.

Gore-gous.

The Work of London's Espira

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 25, 2012
The work of the London based anomaly Espira is full of dark symbolism, like a carnivore's secret erotic dream. As stated by Entrepart, “This evil grandchild of Vivienne Westwood tells us, with brilliant paintings, that the era of over consumption is over; muting in aesthetics of Dyonisiac Eros- and Thanatos-inspired overdub.” Deep, dark, heavy lust and aggressive confrontation.
