Maybe we shouldn't be so impressed with an artist when we hear about their age, but the fact that Munich, Germany-based photographer Elizaveta Porodina is only 24-years old sort of blows our mind. There are some exquisite shots in here, with original compositions and dreamy scenarios that appear both to be fashion oriented with a bit of subconscious and sexual imagery. NSFW, a few "bare chest" shots after the jump.

In 2 and half days, Other and Saddo completed this large-scale mural in Dresden, Germany. Plenty of great detail to get lost in and one of the biggest murals we have seen these artists work on. Traveling back to the U.S., Other will be showing new work will fellow artist Stinkfish at Brooklynite Gallery in Brooklyn on November 5th.

Gerhard Richter is an extremely diverse artist, known very well for his paintings that vary from photo-realistic speed blurs to large colorful abstractions. This video shot by filmmaker Corinna Belz while spending three years in Richter's Cologne studio working on her film Gerhard Richter Painting is amazing how it reveals the paintings being formed and Richter's unique practice of smearing, scraping, layering, and removing paint to create these large abstract paintings.

We are very big supporters of EVOL's work here at Juxtapoz. We wrote about him in the magazine, and have showcased work on the site before. Seeing his older works in Stavanger, Norway over the past few weeks reminded us how interesting his work is in the context of a normal walk in the city.

Patrick Runte's photography series is actually called Jump N' Run, and features well known, classic video games played on in reality situations. Well, only if you consider Pac-Man costumes in a real maze to be a reality situation.

German freelance illustrator Tilman Faelker's images deftly balance a sustained sense of elegance with a subdued undercurrent of playfulness. Weaving delicate lines with structured shapes and a subtle color palette, his illustrations are visually restrained yet contextually absurd, creating an incredibly engaging and beautiful body of work.

Earlier this year, Italian artist Blu opened up the CityLeaks festival in Cologne, Germany with a fantastic medusa head of petrol pumps hair. CityLeaks just released a time-lapse of Blu's progress, as well as duo Captain Borderline's mural done at the same time.

The MS Dockville Festival is turning into one of the better art festivals of the year. First, Evol and his Rural City, and now Luzinterruptus and his amazing field installation, Radioactive Control. The piece demonstrates the paranoia that we are suffering from since the escape of radioactive material in Japan, questioning the safety at nuclear power plants.

We are currently preparing a profile piece in the next issue of Juxtapoz with EVOL, and we just saw this incredible installation he created in Hamburg, Germany called "Rural City." The German artist created the installation for Ms Dockville Festival this August 12—14 in Hamburg.
