London is getting a lot of great art at the moment, so even if you don't want to see the Olympics, the great city has plenty to offer. Take Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo's fantastic 250,000 book maze, aMAZEme, now on display at the Southbank Centre in London. Incredibly, the work, creating with the help of volunteers, is based on a fingerprint of writer Jorge Luis Borges.

Athens, Greece-based visual designer Charis Tsevis has just released some incredible work created for Yahoo!'s coverage of the London 2012 Olympic games. Tsevis depicts "once-in-a-lifetime moments that happen every four years." for three different sports (diving, gymnastics and running) with an extra image for running to represent celebration and victory. Gorgeous movement through geometry.

Charming Baker, the UK artist that was featured in our January 2012 issue, collaborated with famed British fashion designer (he makes a fantastic sunglass, FYI) Paul Smith on Triumph in the Face of Absurdity, a polished cast aluminium bicycle now on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The work was part of Britain Creates 2012: Fashion + Art Collusion, where leading British fashion designers and visual artists collaborate in a ground-breaking series of works commissioned as part of the London 2012 Festival.

Whether creating waterfalls along the East River in NYC, a rainbow panorama viewing room at the Aros Museum in Aarthus, Denmark, or a beautiful one-way color tunnel like the one we saw at SFMoMA, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is one of the most heralded contemporary artists working today. In short, he is like a scientist who happens to make incredibe, immersive, experience-based art. Just in time for the Olympics, Eliasson will open Little Sun at the Tate Modern.

London-based painter Candice Tripp, we have mentioned her work on the site before (and she was in our Juxtapoz Turns 18 show), is set to open a new exhibition, Petit-Mal, at Black Rat Projects in London on Thursday, July 26. Right before the Olympics kick off, you can go check out some of these creepy works by the Cape Town born artist.

With the London Olympics set to open on Friday, July 27, everyone is getting into the celebratory/satirical mood. Banksy was going to miss this opportunity to land a few punches and comical jabs at the increasingly corporate games, and he just produced two new street pieces to show his "support" of the Olympics.

We haven't checked in with one of our favorite painters, Chloe Early, in almost a year, and we loved the series of paintings she had at Joshua Liner Gallery last Fall. Taking a surreal approach, with figurative elements interchanged with color abstractions and dreamlike visions, Early's paintings take you on a stream of consciousness journey.

As well as showing his photorealistic stencil works of dark urban landscapes, Hicks will be showing his excellent photography works that he has been shooting over the past half decade.
