"Floating" Wire Sculptures by David Oliveira

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 09, 2012
These wire sculptures appear to be, and I'm almost convinced they are, small ink drawings on top of photos of a gallery setting. No, these are actual wire sculptures that appear as if they are floating on the surface. But that is David Oliveira's intention; twist, turn, contort the wires to appear like drawing sculptures floating in the air.

Taki 183

Graffiti // Saturday, June 09, 2012
Although this picture could easily open up the floodgates for various jokes, we will just praise Taki 183 for his early pioneering of graffiti and for still being down to rock a tag with a green polo tucked in.  Plus a big ol’ smile!  Photo taken during installation of the “Art in the streets” show in Los Angeles last year.

The Stripping Illustrations of Barcelona's Chamo

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 09, 2012
These playfully striped up, and stripped down illustrations are from Chamo, an artist and illustrator based out of Barcelona. He studied Fine Arts at UB (Universitat de Barcelona), Barcelona, and ENSBA (École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts) in Paris. He considers himself a drawer and photographer, but is in love with every field of the arts.  

The Work of Carne Griffiths

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 09, 2012
Carne Griffiths works primarily with calligraphy ink, graphite and liquids, such as tea brandy, vodka and whisky when he draws and then manipulates the drawn line. After graduating from Maidstone college of art Carne served an apprenticeship and worked as a gold wire embroidery designer for 12 years, hence floral pattern, repetition and flow play a large part in his work. Carne’s images explore both human and floral forms, figuratively and in an abstract sense.

Ben Wolf x Heidi Tulllman Mural in Brooklyn

Street Art // Saturday, June 09, 2012
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn where the streets are plagued with amateur “street art” and everybody has their own stencil, it’s nice to see a decent mural  op up once in a while.  This large hand with nicely painted nails was done by local artists, Ben Wolf and Heidi Tullman, and can be seen between the intersections of Wythe and Berry on South 6th.  Follow the finger!

Juxtapoz @ E3 2012: Unlike anything you've seen before, Unfinished Swan

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 09, 2012
Nothingness is not a common theme you find in the gaming world. When hundreds of games are competing to be seen with hyper-color characters, dense environments, and action packed / bullet ridden sequences, nothingness can scream at you though. Especially when you uncover the brilliant game design hidden underneath the surface as you do in the title Unfinished Swan.
