Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 17, 2012
Everyone has their goals, and apparently, Qzina Specialty Foods has the goal of making the world's largest chocolate sculpture. And when we say largest, we are talking 18,239 pounds 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.

Henry Washer @ Heebee JeeBee Gallery, Petaluma

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Henry Washer loves playing with wood and it all started because his parents never gave him toys or let him watch TV. I’m only half serious about the toy thing, but either way his meandering philosophies about the world and motivation to communicate his experience have resulted in careful destruction as a creative process. When almost everything we come in contact with today can be reduced to pixels or binary code, Henry’s work discourages digital simplification.

Art Fairs Descend Upon San Francisco This Week

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
As last year proved to be a good formula for art success, San Francisco will once again host 3 coinciding art fairs this weekend: artMRKT, ArtPadSF, and the SF Fine Art Fair. We are getting ourselves prepared for a few nights out, a few afternoons out of office, perhaps even a picture or a 100 of all the activity going on throughout the city. A rundown after the jump . . .

The World's Tallest LEGO Tower

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
They even let the Danish Crown Price Frederik place one of the last blocks on the tower, to honor the 80th Anniversary of the famed toy company, LEGO. In Seoul, Korea, in front of the Olympic Stadium, 4,000 children and over 500,000 LEGO blocks came together to create, at least for the time being, the tallest LEGO tower ever constructed at 105 feet. If this were done in America, after about 3-feet the kids would have been bored.
