Recycled Book Sculptures by Long-Bin Chen

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 02, 2014
We've posted the work of Long-bin Chen previously as part of the Dissections and Excavations in Book Art exhibit at The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Today we take a closer look at his work specifically. The New York-based artist carves stacks of books or papers into warriors, Buddhas, and other often Asian culture-inspired sculptures, the finished piece resembling stone carvings. 

Masters of Illustration: Romance Pulp Covers

Erotica // Monday, June 02, 2014
When it comes to displaying lustful romance, seduction, passion and desire, there is no better place to turn than the covers of vintage pulp novels. Filled with sinfully innocent stories and naughty erotica, the masterful illustrators that created these images had a talent unlike any other. Here is a selection of some of our favorites from a few of the best.

The abandoned handball courts of Ireland

Photography // Sunday, June 01, 2014
There are roughly around 700 abandoned handball courts spread throughout Ireland that once served not only a place for athletics, but as a spot for people to socialize and dance. After the ‘50s, handball moved indoors leaving the outside courts to be demolished or used for storage or parking lots. Photographer Kenneth O Halloran spent some time last year visiting hundreds of them and documenting their deteriorated appearance. 

Kim Ji-Hoon's Rendered Realism

Illustration // Sunday, June 01, 2014
These realistic pencil renderings from an artist by the name of Kim Ji-Hoon are seriously blowing my mind right now. I don't even think my eyes are capable of seeing that much detail, let alone re-creating it. We came across some intricatley drawn illustrations of body parts (Arnold Schwarzenegger throwback), landscapes and animals from this incredible talent who chooses to remain pretty anonymous.

Old school NYC graffiti artist COPE2 is the most recent artist to takeover the famous Bowery & Houston wall in Manhattan, adding a mixture of tag elements and odes to other graffiti giants from the past 30+ years of graffiti history.

New Work from Jules Julien

Illustration // Friday, May 30, 2014
Graphically bold, simply rendered and heavily silhouetted, the work of Jules Julien satisfies that part of us that longs for the deep intricacies of illustration but appreciates the minimal and easy to digest. As an illustrator out in Amsterdam, I have confidence that Jules knows exactly what she is doing, and she's doing it right.
