Book Cuts by Thomas Allen

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 11, 2012
There has been a nice movement of artists who are creating works involving cut-outs of vintage books, and we know Thomas Allen is making some of our favorite works. The three-dimensional works turn into mini cinematic scenes. What seems so simple is executed perfectly.

Sculptures by Hanna Sandin

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 11, 2012
Very much evoking the structural framework of Alexander Calder's mobiles, Hanna Sandin creates similar sculptural works that use everyday objects, albeit often fragmented and not initially recognizable, in these hanging arrangements. Blades of ceiling fans, palm fronds, mop heads, and many other common objects float together acting as abstract forms similar to Calder's colorful shapes.

Music // Friday, May 11, 2012
So we went to Coachella and forgot to post our photos like we were supposed to. Well, sue us. Without further ado... The Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival raged for two straight weekends this year in the California desert, taking on a different format but no less fantastic to experience. Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine made it to what was the GD outdoor sweat lodge of Weekend 2 amid blazing heats—the typical temps that bounced back from quite the opposite over Weekend 1.

Preview: Word To Mother "Can't Afford to be Broke" @ White Walls, SF

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 10, 2012
Truth be told, I feel like Word To Mother never left San Francisco. Every morning, I see his tag, on my garbage bin, in the Lower Haight, from a show he had years before. Now, the London-based artist is back in SF with a new exhibition, Can't Afford To Be Broke, at White Walls. Preview and installation shots after the jump . . .

Treading Water and Surfacing by Sam Green

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 10, 2012
Anytime we see St Martins College, we think of Pulp. Can't help it. Sam Green is an illustrator who attended said university, and he also creates these fantastic drawings that illustrate people surfacing out of water or treading water. What is left out makes the drawings that much more dramatic...
