"The Beatles in Comic Strips": A Collection of Comic Book Apperances

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
The Beatles are ubiquitous. John Lennon may no longer be with us, but his voice still echoes on radios, CDs, record players, and computers across the globe. It's no wonder that the fab four have made a whole book worth of comic strip appearances, all of which are riddled with beautiful illustrations and imaginative adaptations of the pop music masters.

Fabian Oefner's "Disintegrating" and "Hatch"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner has previously appeared on the site for his beautiful high-speed photographs of spinning paint as well as his magnetic watercolor photos. Today we take a look at a series of six photographs that, like before combine art and science. His Disintegrating series dismantles and "explodes" classic sports cars, freezing their parts in space. The Hatch series sees the cars "breaking" from inside a shell.

The Third Eye of Emma Kunz

Illustration // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Emma Kunz was a healer and visual artist who has only broken into the art world posthumously. Her images are reminiscent of Buddhist maps of the universe--mandalas--and many have noted that to see them correctly you must appraise them with "your third eye." Originally they were created to be placed on the floor next to the clients the artist was seeing; they functioned as therapeutic tools rather than pieces of art. Kunz was said to have been telepathic and even divine, and discovered a "healing stone" that is used today in herbal medicine.

Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids

Erotica // Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Big Shots: Andy Warhol Polaroids provides insight into the artist who sought to capture the world with his camera. An exhibition of about 250 of these photos wa put on public view for the first time at The Nasher Museum at Duke University in 2010. These photos of celebrities capture the younger, more vulnerable edge of the faces we have come to know so well, many of them topless or stripped-down in a way that indicates a sense of intimacy that Warhol insisted on. See you who can recognize!
