We recently checked in with Hamburg-based artist Moki, whose acrylic paintings we admired earlier last year and were pleased to be introduced to her fantastic paintings on wood! Inspired by Japan's Hayo Miyazaki (Spirited Away), Hamburg-based artist Moki's acrylic paintings feature humans enveloped in cold, serene northern landscapes.

Ah, to be 20 years old with really good ideas and execution. Wish we could say that was us, but then we see works like this from Landau and Weimar, Germany-based photographer Lucas Zimmermann, and we know we were still amateur at that age. All these shots were taken of traffic lights in the fog near Weimar, Germany.

German industrial designer, Dieter Rams, has an extensive career of making product designs for Braun. Das Programm, the store and archive of Dieter Rams‘ work for Braun, curated an exhibition entitled "Systems," where they asked 34 graphic designers to respond to “systematicity of Braun Design," in the vein of Rams' classic work for the company. The resulting poster art designs, ranging from classic Braun designs to products that never saw production, are up in the Walter Knoll showroom in Clerkenwell, London, through December 31, 2013.

We are loving Katharina Fritsch funny and frightening work. Psychology and the expectations of visitors to a museum influence her wild figures.

Always a favorite in the Juxtapoz office, Parra just opened a new solo show at Ruttkowski 68 Gallery in Cologne, Germany, titled And Wait For Something to Happen. The show features 11 paintings, 11 drawings, and porcelain editions made in collaboration with the great Case Studyo. The work again shows the Amsterdam-based Parra's bold, powerful, confident, and simply elegant work, and playful subject matter.

We recently visited the Swiss Army Knife factory and saw their collection of vintage knives. We have also seen the ridiculousness that is the Wenger 16999. This "multi-tool' though tops them all. Created by John S. Holler in Germany around 1880, the knife has 100 functions including shears, an auger, saws, a lancet, cigar cutter, pens, straight razor and piano tuner. And yes, that is a fully functioning .22 caliber five-shot pinfire revolver you see there.
