Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 11, 2013
French artist Bernard Pras's latest installation is a portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyate. It is anamorphic, meaning it is an illusion that can only be viewed from a specific vantage point.

Tape to New Heights: The Work of Rebecca Ward

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
