Joao Ruas' New Erotica

Juxtapoz // Sunday, June 03, 2012
A gorgeous collection of some of João Ruas' more sensual, seductive works, Ruas paints a haunting world inhabited by enigmatic figures and regal beasts awash in a maelstrom of mysterious energies. His explorations of the darker realms of the spirit evoke states of emotional turmoil, spiritual hunger and troubled passion. Weaving together history, mythology and cryptic symbolism in a misty dreamscape...

The Work of Bill Connors

Juxtapoz // Sunday, June 03, 2012
Screenprinter and illustrator deluxe, Bill Connors is an artist living and working in Chicago, who recently graduated with my BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Melting faces, flesh and veins, brains, hairy guts, serpent eyes and the little pointy ears of ghastly beasts- these are a few of my favorite things.... (also!!)

The Bookyard: An Outdoor Public Library by Massimo Bartolini

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 02, 2012
We love public art in any form, especially when it completely changes the landscape (for the better). We love bookstores and libraries, too, and to see this fantastic project, an outdoor public library called The Bookyard, just combines all the things we like. Massimo Bartolini, we say wonderful work. The public installation, made for the Belgian Art Festival, sits next to rows of grapevines.

The Photography of Joanna Pallaris

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 02, 2012
If you need to spend some time mesmorized on a website for a bit, we suggest checking out photographer Joanna Pallaris' site. Almost ghostly and from a time long ago, Pallaris' works seem out of place in 2012, a spirit of Francesca Woodman or Man Ray as opposed to the more digital influences of today. Granted, we found these on Flickr. But the work still seems to come from a whole other time.

Street Art // Saturday, June 02, 2012
Italy-based street artist, Aris, paints abstract and oddly shaped one-colored pieces , often on trains, and occasionally with distorted human figures.

Featured Tattoo Shop: Tattoo City, San Francisco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 02, 2012
Ed Hardy's original shop, Tattoo City (now in their 3rd location) is located right in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach. A classic and iconic shop, which opened in 1974 in a former candy store, is a prime example of how far getting inked has come. Kahlil Rintye, Mary Joy, Jen Lee, Doug Hardy and Ed Hardy himself (still tattooing Fri-Mon) all have amazing freehand drawing capabilities and specialize in the pace-setting quality work that Ed's shops have always been known for.
