The Royal Tenenbaums Book Covers

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Wildcat... was kind of written in an obsolete vernacular. We love Wes Anderson, but to this day, The Royal Tenenbaums is his masterstroke, full of incredible dialogue and layers of detail that still delight today. One of the best parts of the movie? All the literary references and published works of the family, and the Criterion Collection recently posted a collection of book covers of Anderson's subjects.

The Works of Charlie Isoe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
It has been awhile since we check in with Perth, Australia-based, and former April 2010 cover artist, Charlie Isoe, but we were looking at his old cover image in our office yesterday and thought... damn, Charlie is a talented painter. The works always felt full of energy, ideas, command, but also loose and exploratory. Although he hasn't shown in a few years, we expect something interesting whenever Isoe has a new body of work.

Self-Portraits by Anmagdan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Yes those are a pencil shavings of various colors, and yes, that is a self-portrait by an artist under the moniker, Anmagdan. The artist has all sorts of tips on body art, and with someone who uses pencil shavings, wax, paint, crayons, and sculptures around her face, we take her word that she is nearing authority status.

Monochromatic Works by Yasuyo Fujibe

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
In this series of oil paintings by Japanese artist Yasuyo Fujibe, flesh becomes ephemeral as the face fades into bone-white oblivion. Understated but effective. Fujibe is a graduate of the Kyoto University of Art and Design.

"Jesus! What Did You Do?": A Tale of Art Restoration Failure

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
In a recent and somewhat tragic incident, the church of Santuario de Misericordia's fresco depicting good ol' JC was radically revamped, or at least that was the initial goal of the eighty-something-year-old amateur restorer who took the project on without asking permission. A quote from culture councilor Juan Maria de Ojeda describes the fate of the 19th century wall painting aptly remarking she noticed "she had gotten out of hand" and gone on to confess to local authorities.

The Works of Anai Greog

Illustration // Wednesday, August 29, 2012
These colourful circles are from a series of art prints by Romanian artist, Georgiana Te?eleanu aka Anai Greog. Their barrage of beautiful decoration and symmetrical patterns are entrancing. Anai was first inspired by mandalas which she discovered trough the work of Carl Jung.

Music // Tuesday, August 28, 2012
As part of our Outside Lands 2012 art curation, there was the separate, bootlegged festival in the woods, the Dr Flotsams' Hell Brew Revue, created and produced by Mike Shine and his team. With folk and bluegrass bands playing all throughout the weekend, and the surrounding Flotsam carnival and revival performances, John Butler and Colin Day captured the mood of the Flotsam performance in this picture essay. Sit back, enjoy.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 28, 2012
If you ever find yourself traveling around Denmark, and get yourself to the island of Zealand, you will be surprised to see a mural by Spanish muralist, ARYZ, freshly painted on a brick building. As photographer Henrik Haven told us, "Before his piece for the Galore festival, the Spanish street artist traveled an hour away from Copenhagen to Næstved.. the piece is part of Næstved Youth School of Art and decoration project Næstved Art City."
