FriendsWithYou: "Cloudy"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We saw this last week, and forgot to mention it here on the site! Miami-based artists, Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, aka FriendsWithYou, just created this short animatio, Cloudy, featuring their signature style and minimal character design with a playful, soulful piece. Or as FWY say, "a sweet, visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you'll wish to take over and over again."

Olafur Eliasson "Little Sun" @ Tate Modern, London

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 25, 2012
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.

Digital Erotica by Javier Gonzalez Pacheco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, July 14, 2012
Javier Gonzalez Pacheco is a skilled erotic artist out of Barcelona who incorporates abstracted elements, geometric shapes and splashes of color to accentuate his sexy feminine portraits. The ladies he portrays in his works are undoubtedly sexy, whether alone or with their feminine counterparts. Javier is influenced by expressionist painting, as that style is visible in his digital works.

Innovative Street Art by Jilly Ballistic

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
Jilly Ballistic's recent, digitally inspired series of street and subway pieces caught our eye. These sardonic pop-up windows and drop tabs deflate the advertisements and make us laugh where we would have previously groaned. Thank you Jilly Ballistic. These make us smile.

Hilary Pecis "In Accordance" @ Halsey McKay Gallery, East Hampton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
San Francisco-based Hilary Pecis, who we featured in our May 2011 issue, has a new exhibition, In Accordance, up at Halsey McKay Gallery in East Hampton through July 17. We have championed Pecis' work in the past because we feel it represents a traditional painters embrace of new media and technology, as she researches and culls hundreds of Internet images on a particular concept and creates a canvas based on those findings.
