Update: Paintings by Dan Voinea

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
We love Dan Voinea's suspension of belief, his capturing of movement and timeless style. "Momentary rise of reason constitutes a deliberated exercise in sanity and the absurd in the realm of the surreal. By means of basic, sparse compositions and frugal coloring, the artworks depict every-day stereotypes in which the strange detail contaminates the apparent reality with the absurd." - Dan Voinea

Another Look: The Work of McBess

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 13, 2013
We don't know much about McBess, aka Matthieu Bessudo, but according to his website, he is an "expensive" illustrator and art director for hire. We just love his energetic works, full of music references and comic book style. Black and white, a few pieces of color, but a great sense of humor. 

Piracy: Using CDs to Make a Portrait

Music // Wednesday, December 11, 2013
It has been a question that has dogged the Western world for nearly 13 years: what do we do with CDs? Look, we love Catch A Fire as much as the next gal/guy, but really, you can love that no matter what medium. Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco have taken the CDs of famous rock icons and made a portrait out of them. Of that particular icon to be exact. 

The Work of Boris Pelcer

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 04, 2013
"I can sense the presence of enclosed spaces within my psyche. A hidden collection of obscure moods & thoughts that I can't quite comprehend. In attempt to better comprehend some of it, I've developed this series. It is a stroll of curiosity in search of something insightful, somewhere within the hidden valleys of my psyche."

Amazing Pencil Works by Adonna Khare

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 25, 2013
Working with pencil is one thing, but to create large-scale, massive pencil on paper works as Adonna Khare creates is just stunning. Winner of the Art Prize 2012, Khare lives and works in Southern California, and is a member of the Drawing Center in New York. If you draw like this, it makes sense.

The Works of Jeremy Enecio

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Born in Ormoc City, Philippines, Jeremy Enecio moved to the United States at the age of four. In 2008, he received his BFA in illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. He currently resides in New York City as a freelance illustrator. Eerie and atmospheric, Enecio's digital works are characterized by his painterly touch and an aptitude for storytelling.

Body Illusions by Chooo-San

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 30, 2013
We have shown you the body art of Chooo-San before on the site, but we love some of the "back" work the artist has created. Although we are a little weirded out by the dude that lives in the girl's back, we appreciate some of the simpler works like you see here. 

Update: Decaying Fine Art by Valerie Hegarty

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013. The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?

Top 25 Modern Beer Labels

Top List // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Cold and wet is about all we need to enjoy a beer but these breweries have gone the extra mile to create beautiful packaging for their intoxicating libations. We make no quality guarantees for the content of their canisters but if we were to judge a book by it's cover, these would be great "reads."
