Erin Smith's Typographical Images

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Look closely at Australian artist Erin Smith's images and you will see that they are comprised of very tiny letters. She extracts letters from journals of automatic writing, then digitally prints them, and hand draws it all onto paper. Erin's images are a fascinating mix of words and design and you can't help but be amazed at her intricacy.

The Work of Australia's Nanami Cowdroy

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 20, 2012
You don't need color to have an impact, we have seen that many times in recent months on this site. But when it comes to detail and black ink, Sydney, Australia based Nanami Cowdroy has some finely tuned illustrative chops.

The World's First Lego Colosseum by Ryan McNaught

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
We actually reallly like the size here in the construction of the world's first Lego Colosseum, created by certified Lego builder, Ryan McNaught.

New Paintings by MARGARITA GEORGIADIS

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 26, 2012
We just ran into a new body of work from Margarita Georgiadis, who just showed at Edwina Corlette Gallery in Brisbane, Australia this past May. A mixture of abstract flashes mixed with figurative elements of flashing moments caught on canvas, Georgiadis' work is both haunting and refreshing, a nice collection of oil on canvas works that are both psychological and physical.
