3D Paper Animal Sculptures by José Suris IV

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Brooklyn-based artist Jose Suris IV created these awesome masks and sculptures out of paper! Despite looking like real fur, the animals were constructed out of paper, Styrofoam, wirefoam, and paperclay. Suris hangs his sculpted creatures and masks on displays just like a taxidermist. His inspiration? Pretty much everything: Internet videos, cartoons, Zelda, Pokémon’s Evee, stories...

3D Printed Faces From Found DNA

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 06, 2013
Information artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg has been taking DNA left behind on spit out gum, hairs, and other pieces of our genetic trail that we leave behind every day and generating and printing faces using a 3D printer. The resulting portraits of anonymous people may not be a 100% accurate since there are many things that are impossible to determine from DNA (age, etc.), the artists says they probably have a "family resemblance." The series is titled Stranger Visions.

Matt Leines "Hyperbolic" @ Beginnings, Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Via our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America, Brooklyn based Matt Leines recently opened a solo exhibition, Hyperbolic, at Beginnings in Brooklyn. After living in Philadelphia for a few years, the artist moved to New York and settled into a rhythm that was both fresh and cheerful, or as the gallery notes: "Those who follow (Leines') work may have noticed a shift in the last few years, somebody flipped a switch in the artist’s brain–or maybe spun a dial–and all sorts of things began to happen: visible spectrum increasing, palette spinning out, subjects becoming more universal and less referential.

Suspended Loop of Chairs by Marc Andre Robinson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Brooklyn-based artist Marc Andre Robinson salvaged over a dozen chairs and has presented them in a suspended loop for his sculptural installation titled Right of Return (By Themselves and of Themselves). Robinson often uses discarded furniture in his work, playing with the dialogue between art and artifact and transforming them into 'sculptural assemblages with complex and delicately balanced symbology.'

Last Saturday night, as Manhattan was in full swing of all things Armory Show, Dennis McNett and the Wolfbat team put together a full music, installation, performance, and fine art party at House of Vans in Brooklyn. The show aimed to slay "the demons and storm surge sent by the gods through hurricane Sandy." In other words, a benefit. Tod Seelie was there...

Converse x Juxtapoz: Wall To Wall Brooklyn featuring Jersey Joe

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 21, 2013
Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the mural created in Brooklyn, our second there, by former Juxtapoz feature artist Jersey Joe. The piece was featured on the back of our January 2013 issue.

Illustrations by Steven Ketchum

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 14, 2013
We really like the work of Brooklyn-based artist Steven Ketchum. According to Steven, his artwork is a reflection of confusion seen in the world and the figures he draws don't understand themselves or eachother.
