Paintings on Photographs by Charlotte Caron

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 03, 2013
We are enjoying the paintings of French artist Charlotte Caron this morning. She took a very simple idea, with a nice effect, involving the humanization of animals, and animalizing humans. The artist says of the series, "This series of paintings, photographs, are trying to respond to a form of duality... ultimately creating an osmosis between the two mediums, between the animal and the portrait."

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 11, 2013
French artist Bernard Pras's latest installation is a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyate. It is anamorphic, meaning it is an illusion that can only be viewed from a specific vantage point. Pras used clothes, paint, wood, rubber, and other objects to fill the entire room and the portrait is only clearly visible through the lens of his camera.

Vibrant Palette Knife Paintings by Françoise Nielly

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 09, 2013
This morning we take a look at the paintings of French artist Françoise Nielly. Nielly's colorful portraits, created using thick strokes of oil on canvas, are based off simple black and white photographs. According to her bio, Nielly 'takes a risk: her painting is sexual, her colors free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her color pallete dazzling.'   

French Pharmaceutical Ads from the 1930s

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 29, 2013
A brilliant collection of pharmaceutical ads from France, circa the 1930s. There are a few in here that channel a pre "Mother's Little Helper" vibe, with a tad-too-happy individual with their over the counter drugs, but we just love the classic graphic design and poster art style.
