Mathilde Roussel "Lifes Of Grass"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
An installation that grows with time... pretty interesting concept. French artist Mathilde Roussel created the pieces that would make up Lifes of Grass, to examined the "effects of transformation of the material as a metaphor of the transformation of the body. Time sculpts the forms, makes them change and then decay." The work went on display around the world, including the 2010 Crossing the Line FIAF Festival at Invisible Dog Gallery, Brooklyn.

Sectioned Crocodile by Nychos

Street Art // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Austrian-based dissection artist, Nychos, recently painted this lengthy sectioned crocodile with a skeleton in its intestines somewhere on a building in Vitry, France. His work is getting cleaner and more distinct with each new piece, a natural progression for someone who produces such a high volume of work. This mural is one of our favorite yet!

An Homage to David Lynch (NSFW)

Sexy, bizarre and creepily fitting erotic homage to the one and only Mr. Lynch. Set to the music of David Lynch's “I know”, this provocative little short film was created by French director Carrementdard for a video competition on Genero TV. Enjoy.

X-Ray Portrait Art by Xavier Lucchesi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 20, 2012
And you thought just sitting for a portrait was laborious. French photographer Xavier Lucchesi uses a medical scanner as the basis for his portrait work, where he takes the final X-ray and adds color, highlighting certain shapes or organs. Let's recap: find subject, get them to a x-ray machine, scan them, and then go in and highlight all the vital organs with specific colors that make a beautiful portrait. Got it.

In Erotica: The Legacy of Guy Bourdin

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 10, 2012
French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin (b. 1928 - d. 1991) was one of the first fashion photographers to create a complex narrative and then capture the overpowering mood of a single moment, whether it was provocative, exotic, surrealistic, or even sinister. Influenced by his mentor Man Ray, surrealist painters Magritte and Balthaus, and filmmaker Luis Buñuel, Bourdin's work similarly continues to inspire photographers worldwide.

We always like to see what TILT is working on, and we just saw that he completed the Panic Room, a hotel room of half graffiti, half clean slate, pristine white. TILT did the Panic Room inside the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France, where 5 artists transformed 5 different rooms in their own signature style.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 12, 2012
We try and catch a few animations during the week to keep up with who is making great work, and we just saw this short by ellusive French duo CRCR called, Les Chiens Isolés (Lonely Dogs). It is beautifully rendered, well-paced, well-sounddtracked, following two friends as they work on an isolated oil rig.

For his fall show in 1995, visionary French fashion designer Thierry Mugler created this downright sexy Metropolis-inspired she-robot costume. Is this a glimpse into our fashion future, when sex-pot robots rule the Earth? We won't be complaining...
