Many eras have passed in Cuba since Fidel Castro took office in 1959 after the Revolution, but the special character of the graphic art spawned in that chaotic, fertile moment has endured, as this volume shows.

Wire Mesh Portraits by Seung Mo Park http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/wire-mesh-portraits-by-seung-mo-park http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/wire-mesh-portraits-by-seung-mo-park Wire Mesh Portraits by Seung Mo Park
Some people paint portraits, and others (or in this case, one other) cut layer upon layer of wire mesh to create a portrait.

Realistic Wood Carvings by Randall Rosenthall http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/realistic-wood-carvings-by-randall-rosenthall http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/realistic-wood-carvings-by-randall-rosenthall Realistic Wood Carvings by Randall Rosenthall
At first glance the artwork of Randall Rosenthal seems to be piles of old magazines, newspapers, and boxes of money. Look a little closer and you will (maybe) notice that they are actually carved wood painted in impressive detail! Using only acrylic paint and a single piece of Vermont White Pine, Rosenthal is able to create a realistic looking sculpture solely from his imagination.

Sara Antoinette Martin's illustrations draw on religious imagery and betray her roots as a tattoo artist. Her pieces often resemble gothic-themed tarot cards; the illustrations are visually bright but often include images of vomit, clowns and severed fingers.

We've posted before about Tina Lugo's illustrations—dark erotic scenes, influenced by her childhood immersion in cartoons, comics and videogames. Lugo lists as her biggest influence the Ero Guru Nansensu art movement of Japan—a name comprised of fractions of the english words erotic, grotesque, and nonsense.

Brisbane-based Leah Emery was working for a video game developer when some explicitly pornographic spam kept skipping past her email filters. She was drawn to it, but wasn't sure how she wanted to incorporate it into her art until she decided to start experimenting with cross stitching, a medium unfamiliar to her at the time.
