The Victorian Inspired Work of Dan Hillier

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 07, 2011
We have been huge fans of London-based artist Dan Hillier for quite some time, as we found his work to be an ornate, illustrative universe of Victorian era with a twist of Eyes Wide Shut regal nature. And, even better, the illustrations and prints are all just a bit creepy and dark.

X-Rated by William Copley (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 25, 2011
On view until August 27th at Sadie Coles HQ in London is X-Rated by William Copley.

It may not be the most polished series of photoshopped images on the web, but it may be one of the more poignant and clever series. London Photoshoplooters takes acutal found photos of rioters from across England and applies a more absurdity to the chaos.

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 19, 2011
These two pieces by Slinkachu are a few months old now, but this piece, titled "Sugar High," done on the streets of London near Kings Cross, is pretty darn clever. As you may know, Slinkachu is noted for their street photography and mini-installations in various outdoor environments around the world.

Mark Noad Reimagines the Fabled London Underground Map

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 09, 2011
The current London Underground map, designed by Harry Beck in 1931, is extremely easy to use but geographical takes many liberties. In fact, it makes the cityscape of London appear quite simple (which it isn't). Mark Noad took the geographic subtleties of wider London and applied it to his own redesign of the Tube Map.
