This strange building looking similar to something out of a Dr. Seuss novel is the result of covering the structure in huge blocks of polystyrene with resin and adding a heavy coat of white paint on top. Used as a contemporary arts space, the idea for the building was created by French artists, Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus.

Juxtapoz favorite, Iacurci Agostino, just recently painted the campus at the University of Bezanzón in France during the 2012 edition of the festival Bien Urbain. As always, he can make a character multiple stories high seem so effortless.

'For years, the French artist Baptiste Debombourg has been gradually perfecting his unique technique taking to a level where he’s now able to create detailed re-interpretations of famous classic paintings. Instead of relying on the usual art mediums, like acrylic or oil paints, he takes these simple objects we use in our every day lives and creates thought-provoking works that blend classic and contemporary art...'

The different talents of French artist, Sebastien Feraut aka Niark1 are as multiple as are the eyes of the weird, wolfish creatures that inhabit his work. His trippy imagery, which manages a sense of darkness despite its beaming colours, fills illustrations and graphics as well as his own large paintings.

A touch of erotica for your morning, but a subtle, painterly version of erotica. French painter Pascal Vilcollet is known for celebrity portraits, even portraits of dogs, but his nude series, Filles du Calvaire, are in our opinion the strongest. These are small either; each piece sits at around 6.5' tall.
