Mark Jenkins is Clever

Street Art // Sunday, March 25, 2012
For this wet Sunday we leave you with this simple piece from Mark Jenkins whose work continuously keeps us laughing and optimistic about artists using concepts for their work in the streets.

An Homage to David Lynch (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Sunday, March 25, 2012
Sexy, bizarre and creepily fitting erotic homage to the one and only Mr. Lynch. Set to the music of David Lynch's “I know”, this provocative little short film was created by French director Carrementdard for a video competition on Genero TV. Enjoy.

Horns shows his appreciation for one of T.V.’s most perverted freaks, Glenn Quagmire. Quagmire is characterized as indulging in several sexual fetishes, from frotteurism and erotic asphyxiation to zoophilia and incest and necrophilia. Wow!

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 24, 2012
We turn 18 this year. Old enough to join the army, vote, serve on a jury, go to the prom, and, we even think we can adopt a child now.

Fish Hook Portrait by Cuban Artist, Yoan Capote

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 24, 2012
Of course, it is always impressive to create a gigantic mural or canvas painting that stands at 26-feet long, and in the case of Cuban artist Yoan Capote, his Isla is quite impressive. But look closely, and you will notice something strange: Isla was completed entirely out of fish hooks. Not just a few, over 500,000 fishing hooks were placed/screwed into plywood to create the dark waves and shadowing.

The Work of Marcus Gunnar

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 24, 2012
We don't know what it is but Stockholm, Sweden breeds some incredible illustrator and watercolor artists, Marcus Gunnar being another great one to add to the roster. Fluid, simple narratives mixed with some surreal imagery and a muted palette on that classic Moleskine cream. Thanks Marcus!

Collage Art by Leigh Wells

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 24, 2012
Leigh Wells' collages fragment bodies, rocks, landscapes, and space appropriating them on two-dimensional surfaces in compositional arrangements of flat color, found imagery, and basic geometry. Bodily forms are broken and cropped in monochrome, balancing somewhere between flesh and hard inanimate matter. Mountain ranges are cut and rotated as forms outside of their original embedment in the landscape.
