Kaleidoscopic Watertower in Brooklyn by Tom Fruin

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 06, 2012
We posted this photo by Robert Banat on our Instagram the other day and got a ton of response. Brooklyn-based artist, Tom Fruin, has built a 25' tall water tank created with 1,000 salvaged plexiglass pieces found around NYC. The piece is illuminated by natural light in day time, and during night a Ryan Holsopple ardunio-controlled light show goes off inside the work.

Photoreal Paintings by Alyssa Monks

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 05, 2012
We have shown you the photoreal paintings of Brooklyn-based painter Alyssa Monks in the past in our Erotica section, and today we were really enjoying her new works painted in 2012. As the years have gone on, Monks' hyperreal paintings have become more abstract, with flesh hiding behind steamed surfaces, obscuring the body and facial expressions, and figures are more in performance with their poses than in works past.

Deep Fried Gadgets by Henry Hargreaves

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 04, 2012
In an attempt to demonstrate a unique view on the fast-pace consumption of new electronic products and gadgets (and our rapid discarding of older technologies), Henry Hargreaves has taken some of the familiar products of the 20th and 21st centuries and deep fried them like a meal at your favorite fast food restaurant.

Glowing Homeless by Fanny Allié

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 22, 2012
As part of the 2011 "Bring to Light" festival, Fanny Allie created the Glowing Homeless sculpture, and placed it on a bench in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As Allie says of her work, "Many of my projects suggest the course of time as they examine memories, past actions or incidents, and events that happened at a specific and recorded time."

Preview: Chrissy Angliker @ Knoerle & Baettig, Winterthur, Switzerland

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Brooklyn-based, Zurich-born Chrissy Angliker is set to open a new series of drip paintings, Control and Chaos, at Knoerle & Baettig Gallery in Winterthur, Switzerland this Saturday, May 12. As Angliker says of the series, "The focus of this painting style lies in creating a balanced relationship between the controllable and uncontrollable. For every intentional mark, there follows a free-falling drip, challenging it. I am searching for a sense of grace in the transition between these two opposing elements."

The Rematch: Duke Riley recreating history in China

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 23, 2012
A history lesson from Brooklyn's Duke Riley: Thousands of years ago, the Jade Emperor decided to assign an animal’s name to every year, in order to simplify the calendar for the people of China. A swimming race amongst twelve animals across the mighty river was organized to determine the sequential order in which year they would appear. This would become the Shengxiao, the Chinese zodiac. And now, Duke is going to recreate this race.

We haven’t seen to much new work in the street lately from Brooklyn street artist, Bast. Glad to see he has some new tricks and enlisted the helping hand of a 4-eyed Dumbo to paint his name on a barred window.
