Eddy Stevens' Photorealistic Paintings

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 28, 2014
It's easy to say that women are the main sunject of Belgian artist Eddy Stevens' vivid photorealistic paintings; yet, his paintings have a distinct emotive edge. From images of clumped emaciated, faceless women with protruding spines to facial portraits of people with long, windblown hair, Stevens' paintings read as vivid dreams, outward expressions of the artist's inner psyche.

The Collaborative Mind of J. Powers Bowman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 25, 2014
J. Powers Bowman creates collaborations with himself. Combining his insanely intricate elements of land air and seascapes, with more landscapes, cities and patterns, his illustrations are drawn, photocopied, cut, drawn and reconstituted again- all by him. I don't really know what that means but the result is just as insane as it was to begin with, but more complex. I'm going to go ahead and categorize this under 'blowing my mind.'

Plastic Doll Faces by Freya Jobbins

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 04, 2014
We love this series of faces composed of pieces of plastic toys by artist Freya Jobbins. Freya was born in Johannesburg, South Africa but grew up in West Sydney, Australia. She see's the toy assemblages as her humorous side and her print making as her 'voice.'

The Tender Tentacles of Daikichi Amano (Very NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 27, 2014
We think it is this image of the octopus/squid with women's heads bulging out that really got us out of bed this Monday morning...creepy but cool. Japanese photographer Daikichi Amano explores the gruesome connection between Japan's metaphorical and literal consumption of both the female form and creatures of the sea...

Best of 2013: Behind the Scenes Photos from "The Shining"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 31, 2013
Originally published on December 2, 2013: We recently watched "Room 237," a film exploring the many theories, conspiracies, and perceived meanings of Kubrick's "The Shining." In addition to inspiring us to re-watch the film a few more times, it also had us getting lost in a little bit of a Kubrick internet research wormhole. Today's finding is a collection of behind-the-scenes photos from the Shining, our favorite being Kubrick's self portrait with his daughter with Jack Nicholson out of focus.
