New Works of Dean Monogenis

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 15, 2014
One of our favorite artists we discovered last year was Brooklyn-based painter Dean Monogenis, an artist who can create wonderful architectural settings that balance on the edge of futurism and surealism. Not only did the artist have a busy 2013 with a ton of new paintings, he is currently showing in a group show at Walter Maciel in Los Angeles...

"Archicine" Illustrations of Iconic Architecture in Film

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 04, 2013
This fun new series of illustrations titled "ARCHICINE" is the work of Federico Babina and depicts iconic architecture portrayed in film. "Scenographies imagined, realized and built to tell stories and characters. The architectural space in the film is not just a background but is transformed as an added protagonist. Movies have the ability to transport us to different worlds and lives and let us live and breathe real or fantastic architecture."

"Mark's House" in Flint, Michigan

Street Art // Saturday, November 09, 2013
A 28-foot-tall tudor-style structure with reflective mylar has been built in a downtown parking lot of Flint, Michigan by architect William Villalobos with colleagues Cesc Massanas and Tomas Selva. Mark’s House pays tribute to the causes of the difficult housing market that has brought foreclosure to an overwhelming amount of homes in Flint. "People don't only lose a house; they lose a bunch of memories that are recorded in the back of their brains that are attached to something physical," says William Villalobos. To reach out past their own local community and connect globally, the underside of the structure contains photos of Kickstarter supporters who helped this project materialize.
