Ericailcane Mural in Modena, Italy

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 08, 2012
Italian street muralist, Ericailcane, recently painted what looks to us like a rugged hamster holding on tight to some gold coinage in the city of Modena. Why he has a noose around his neck is a mystery?

The Work of David V. D'Andrea

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 08, 2012
'Illustrator David V. D'Andrea’s work is iconic, dark, intricate, and beautiful. His illustrations seethe with sinuous, accomplished line work and intentional rough edges. He draws from a variety of themes – the shelves of his small studio are crammed with dusty books: almanacs, type specimens, crumbling encyclopedias, and other esoteric visual references, all looking as if they had been rescued from a medieval basement.'

Juxtapoz @ E3: Into the Pixel 2012

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
One of best parts of getting into these types of events for me is the behind the scenes art you get access to. Into the Pixel is the only traveling art show I have found which exposes the general public to the countless hours of concept art that goes into the video games they love. The time and effort the artists put into the games is truly under appreciated . . .

Architecture In Focus: "Up… up…and away, INTO THE VOID"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
Today we are presenting something new on Juxtapoz.com, something we hope is a reoccurring segment to the daily grind. We are putting "Architecture in Focus," short editorials on the history of various styles, cities, architects, writers, and trends that is often missed in the world of art. Architecture as an artform. That is the focus. First, the history of the skyscraper...

Hair Illustrations by Winnie Truong

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
We don't know why we have such a fascination with hair, but we do. We see installations or illustrations that feature hair, and we are going to check it out. Toronto-born illustrator, Winnie Truong does a magnificent job illustrating hair has a dominate force on her portraits, creeping onto unsuspecting places, covering faces, mouths, noses, and creating an eerie "fringe" like human. No wonder she calls a body of her work, "The Fringes."

Remed x Okuda @ Delimbo Gallery, Sevilla

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
The collaborative works of artists, Remed and Okuda, for the group show “ESTO NO ES GRAFFITI” at Delimbo Gallery in Sevilla, Spain, are quite impressive. Remed’s fusion of strong shapes and rich color palette combined with Okunda’s monotone figures compliment each other perfectly. Remed has something special coming up soon in our printed magazine department. Keep an eye out!

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
Doze Green opened a new solo show, Luminosity in the Dark Rift, at Jonathan LeVine in NYC last month, featuring some of our favorite Doze works to date. Colin Day, who shot a bunch of photos for us last year at Outside Lands in SF, shot a great video of Doze preparing the new works at a studio in San Francisco. A great look at former Juxtapoz cover artist, from February 2008, and his behind-the-scenes preparation.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
This Saturday, LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles will open Joshua Petker's newest body of work, Adrift. In a departure from his layered, textural, neon portrait paintings combining portrait and abstract styles, Petker's new exhibition features more conceptual, "nautical themed works as well as a companion series of portraits – still recognizable as the same artist but distinctively different paintings."
