Good friend Beau Stanton is in Bristol, England right now, teaming up with another Jux friend Andy Phipps and his gallery space in the South for a new grouping of Stanton's work, "Tenebras Lux." We have some progress shots at the moment, and here's the lowdown on the body of work: Tenebras Lux is a new body of work inspired by the imagery and techniques found in sacred spaces. Stained glass windows, elaborate oil paintings, and ornamented sacred objects create an immersive experience that references medieval art forms, ancient and modern religious iconography, and fetishized holy relics.

The only thing caressing this beautiful behind by Mike Mitchell, aka Lepid, is sunlight. Mike is a 25-year-old web designer from Bristol, but we think his true calling is sensual photography.

Ellie Coates is an illustrator and designer based in Bristol, England. Through her work, the viewer is invited into the timeless world of storytelling and encouraged to unfold the narrative in their own imaginations. Coates prepares her images with great care, laying multiple coats of rabbit skin glue and gesso on paper before graphite is applied, a process that endows her illustrations with an ethereal and luminescent quality.

When in Europe, go big like the Eurpean muralists. El Mac was recently in Bristol, England, painting a multi-storied mural for the "See No Evil" festival. The piece is titled Clothed With the Sun, and was inspired by a Renaissance painting in 1504 by Raphael.

Rupert Murdoch and his News Of the World team loved to hack a good phone line, and maybe Banksy was one of the lucky British folks who had a conversation recorded. Regardless, a clever piece posted on the Bristol artist's site . . .

As we noted last week, Banksy was to release a poster at this past weekend's Bristol Anarchist Bookfair, with the subject matter being about the recent Tesco riots in Bristol. Our England correspondent, Butterfly, headed to Bristol to check out the commemorative souvenir poster and the sights.

Nice to see Banksy update his site with some new works, and since all of us took the time to watch the Bristol, England artist art-direct the hallowed ground of "The Simpsons" introduction, Banksy took the time to release some of his storyboard sketches. More after the jump . . .
