The Book Igloo by Colombia's Miler Lagos

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
Just one grab, and this thing will topple. Colombian artist, Miler Lagos, created this "semi book igloo," titled Home, in an installation in 2011 at MagnanMetz Gallery in New York. No glue, nothing holding the books together, just neatly and perfectly stacked so as not to fall over on itself. And with a name like Home, it feels very comforting if you want to read The Hunger Games trilogy amongst other novels.

Street Art Attacks by Filthy Luker

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
Street art, most of the time, should be fun, and we love the interventions that Filthy Luker has come up with. Sea monster arms coming off a building, gigantic pencils scribbling on walls, and trees with eyes are a just a few of fun pieces he has come up with.

Naked Brands by MyHotJuly

Juxtapoz // Sunday, April 29, 2012
"Even if a brand is trying hard to express his core values and identity through a logo , there will be always another side that we see, as a customer, based on our experiences and visions. I tried to 'undress' some famous brands in this personal project made just for fun. I hope you will appreciate not only my Photoshop skills..."

Everyday Objects Turned Art Sculptures by Adam Niklewicz

Juxtapoz // Saturday, April 28, 2012
It is always nice to see sense of humor in the art world, and the sculptures of Polish-born, American-based Adam Niklewicz, where he takes everyday household objects and furnishings and transforms them into sculptures, is some of the more playful work we have seen around in quite some time. As curator Steve Holmes writes, "His work evokes not homeland, but rather the absurdity of nostalgia, the futility of trying to be in any place other than the liminal space of the prefixed-American."

The Giant Rubber Duckie by Florentijn Hofman

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
What we especially like about the gigantic Rubber Duckie that floats around the world, the creation of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, is that there is no political message or grand scheme behind it. It was just made to make people feel better. As the artist states, "The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them." We don't know whether to cry or call shenanigans.

When Obama Flew Into an Explosion On A Corgi, and other Disasterpieces by Conrad Ruiz

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
We love it when we find kindered spirits of pop-culture debauchery and current affairs humor. Riding sharks, Obama on corgis, Olympic crashes, old WWF matches with Hulk Hogan, Conrad Ruiz jumps around cultural icons with watercolors on large format paper. He even created a San Francisco-themed "disasterpiece" that could be the world's biggest watercolor painting. Great works all around.

Ron English for Your April 20 Festivities

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
As you probably know, or forgot about 15 minutes ago, but today is the infamous 4-20, a full-court press of weed jokes and eating fast food you don't really want. To celebrate the occasion, we turn to witticisms of Ron English, who not only is featured in our May 2012 Public Art Issue, but is also an artist who can create a clever weed advertisement. Enjoy.

The Egg Shell Sculpture by Kyle Bean

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 13, 2012
We can't believe this hasn't been done before, and at least to our knowledge, it hasn't been done better than UK-artist Kyle Bean's egg shell sculpture that makes an incredibly detailed chicken. Very good work indeed.

The Hamburger Bed

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 16, 2012
This is almost too ridiculous to even comment on, but because it is a Friday, and somehow this look quite comforting, we wanted to feature the creation of Ms. Kayla Kromer. It is called TheHamburger Bed. If you like to sleep on circular shapes, and fake lettuce and cheese, then this may be for you.

The Color Pencil Fence

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 12, 2012
We had this image sent to us this morning from a colleague, and we thought it was a good idea to brighten up your property or the neighborhood. Somebody thought it a good idea to add a little color pencil fence to their ordinary fence, and the result is a surprising bit of street art.
