Illustrations by Argentina's YAIA

Illustration // Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Yaia is the moniker of designer and Argentine artist Julio Cesar Battistelli. Our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America turned us onto Yaia's work, an artist inspired by skateboarding, punk, metal, horror movies and underground cartoons. As you can tell, the illustrations are highly detailed, with crisp lines in solid and dark compositions.

The Work of San Poggio

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 13, 2014
Argentine artist, San Poggio's sur­re­al­ist works and real­is­tic ren­der­ings leave lit­tle to the imag­i­na­tion with the bizarre scenery, happenings and situations that are laid out in the intricate settings. There are behead­ings and strug­gles, collections and a little bit of obsessive compulsion in Poggio's masterful illustrations and paintings.

Best of 2013: "Back to the Future," Photographs by Irina Werning

Photography // Monday, December 23, 2013
Originally published on May 2, 2013: Buenos Aires-based photographer Irina Werning travelled to 32 countries and shot 250 pictures for her Back to the Future project. "I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future."

"The Liquid Serpent," Photographs by Nicolas Janowski

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 19, 2013
We love this series of photographs entitled The Liquid Serpent, from Argentinean photographer Nicolas Janowski. Nicolas describes the Amazon, where the photographs were taken, as "neither man nor animal. She is nature's hybrid. Mirrors of man's contradictions, of a world to which she belongs and yet remains distant. The Amazon bears forth over-stimulated cities pervaded by a savage force, which exist simultaneously as survival mechanisms...

Leandro Erlich's "Dalston House" Optical Illusion

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 27, 2013
While we wish we could experience most of the things we post in-person, every once in a while we come across something (often installations) that makes us even more jealous of those who get to see it for themselves. This optical illusion by Argentine artist Leandro Erlich is one of those. The piece uses a wall of giant mirrors to make it seem as though visitors are climbing and jumping along the vertical wall of a house!

"In Orbit" TOMÁS Saraceno's Largest Installation to Date

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 21, 2013
  This isn't the first time we have posted the work of Tomas Saraceno. His latest, largest and most ambitious work also looks like the most fun ever. Like an adult playground! To create the mesh structure suspended 25 meters in the air, the artist worked with a team of architects, engineers and biologists (studying spiders) for over three years. The net itself weighs 3 tons and there are 6 inflated PVC spheres positioned within the mesh net. Like spiders, visitors must coordinate their activities with one another using vibration and their perception of space. Amazing.  

Tomás Saraceno's "14 Billion" Installation

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 30, 2013
This morning we go back and take a look at an installation by Argentine artist Tomas Saraceno from 2010. Entitled 14 Billion, the incredible site-specific exhibit is an extension of another work aptly titled Galaxy Forming along Filaments, like Droplets along the Strands of a Spider's Web.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Argentinian artist Gerardo Felstein uses wire, wood, textiles, and other materials for his bizarre sculptures. Originally studying electrical engineering, Gerardo first started to paint and now is an artists in several different fields.

"Ecstasy on Bedsheets" by Diego Beyró

Erotica // Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Diego Beyró's productions are characterized by force, the impact of his images and the coexistence of the academic, craftsmanship and the use of new technologies and devices. Both in his series Orgasms, in which he painted that singular instant of ecstasy on bedsheets, and in his more experimental videos, or his digital work, we see the body as an object of thorough study.

Best of 2012: Hyperreal Paintings by Diego Gravinese

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 20, 2012
What we wrote on January 8, 2012: Argentinian-painter Diego Gravinese creates hyperreal oil on canvas and acrylic paintings that at first we thought were a series of photographs. The works are highly detailed, capturing both mundane and bizarre scenes in photo realistic style.
