Collage Works from Javier Pinon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
'My work has had a tendency to be a bit autobiographical. Not literally, but under the surface. My reality or state of mind at the time that the collages are made is reflected in the psychology of the work and the stories it tells.

The Art of Mister Finch

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 07, 2014
Landing somewhere between sculpture, textiles and artisan stuffed-animal-making, Mister Finch is an anomaly in the field of makers--huge, beautiful embroidered and stuffed insects and animals is what he makes en masse.

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 30, 2012
The Soviets were really good at making poster art in the form of propaganda, so good that even the most horrible messages had a begrudgingly nice look. But we have to say, when the Soviet graphic artists wanted to tackle anti-alcohol subjects, they make it damn effective.

Stitched Magazine Covers by Inge Jacobsen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
First we had to get over the fact that artist Inge Jacobsen did not include Juxtapoz in her stitched magazine cover series, and then we started to appreciate the Irish-Danish by way of England artist's work. And, we love how she included both the front and back of her works to assess.
