What we wrote on October 17, 2012: We have posted about the art of Yigal Ozeri recently on the site, but it dawned on us yesterday to look into some of his past works, and wow, he has some truly fantastic pieces in his career. Photoreal is one thing, but there is something unique about these paintings, something a photo can't capture with unique methods of captuing sunlight and color.

What we wrote on November 8, 2012: At first we didn't have a clue of what we were looking at, but then the piece begins to take shape. You are looking at a depiction of a car crash, as composed by painitng humans and organizing them in the shape of the crash. Australian aritst Emma Hack created the piece with 17 people, and over 18 hours of work. Watch the video...

What we wrote on April 1, 2012: Maybe it's our lingering jetlag in London, but these realistic, blurred motion paintings by Ho Ryon Lee are messing with our heads this morning. A little tease, a nice recreation of a dream state from the Seoul, Korea-based artist.

What we wrote on October 20, 2012: Too good to be true was our initial thought when viewing these images. The French architecture firm, Atelier Zündel Cristea, proposed the following design for a trampoline bridge spanning across the Seine River in Paris. Although it seems highly unrealistic for a city to ever approve such a safety hazard of funness, it is a great idea.

What we wrote on November 22: Wow. We don't know why we became so transfixed with this video, how we couldn't dare take our eyes off of it, but Emily Kai Bock's Nightlife video for musician Sebastien Schuller is one of the better ones we have seen all year. You don't need a big budget, some grand arching storyline, just an expert idea of light and mood. Somehow, we are either excited about our trip to Miami in two weeks, or terrified. Stunning simplicity at work.

What we wrote on June 26, 2012: There is a mutal consensus between ourselves and the readers of Juxtapoz; we love sketchbook viewing. But rarely do we get something that blends sketchbooks and a bit of optical trickery. Not only does Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki show you his sketchbooks, he creates a 3D effect that is a simple but exciting illusion.

What we wrote on March 9, 2012: We just stumbled across the works of Juan Francisco Casas, a Spanish artist who creates these fantastic nude/sex scene'd drawings with only a Bic pen. Casas captures his models in a consistent backdrop: bed, showers, or taking pictures... you get our point here, there is going to be some nudity in these drawings. Just enjoy the skill, if you will.

What we wrote on April 18, 2012: Nothing much more to say than these are stunning underwater portraits from photographer Jacob Sutton. Working in fashion and other commercial venues, Sutton's personal work is highlighted by this series of 3 underwater shots.

What we wrote on July 10, 2012: Perhaps we have a weak stomach, but there is something about these photos that makes our belly turn a bit. First, Belgian photographer Kurt Stallaert's series, Bodybuilder's World, started innocent enough; a family that looked a little too buff for their own good.
