3D Attack: 2012 Magic Art in Hangzhou, China

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 03, 2012
It was all about the 3D paintings. For the 2012 Magic Art exhibition in Hangzhou, which lies in the Eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, visitors were entertained to the tune of interacting with 3D paintings, literally getting to exist within a painting itself. According to the International Business Times, the Chinese outsourced the work to "15 South Korean artists, exclusively for the Hangzhou's Magic Art Special Exhibition, over a period of four months."

Music Video: Liars "Brats" by Ian Cheng

Music // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
As we have stated on this site time and time again, the state of music videos, since the advent of this thing called the Internet, is in a quite strong place. Enter this fantastic new video by Ian Cheng for the band Liars (whose new album, WIXIW, is really quite good) and their new single, "Brats." An Elmer Fudd character, a Donnie Darko killer bunny rabbit, and an intense thunder dance beat make this a good wake-up call for your afternoon.

Beyond the Body by Imme van der Haak

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Dutch artist Imme van der Haak is behind the project, Beyond the Body, where "photos of the human body are printed onto translucent silk which will create the possibility of physically layering different body’s, ages, generations and identities." The results are a bit jarring, intriguing, especially in the video, where the dancing actors with the silk over their bodies confuses your perception of identity and, in our most honest assesment, the age of the performer.

Mixed-media works by Debra Hampton

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
There are endless possibilities in the universe of collage art, and we really like what Debra Hampton has done with this series of works. Combining ??magazine cut outs, watercolor, and ink on panel, Hampton reimagines, arranges, and removes most identifiable elements of the model or person she is borrowing from and turns it into a surreal firestorm.

Human Default by Gianluca Traina

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
Well this is a good way to kick off the week, the amazing "skin dress" concept from Italian artist Gianluca Traina called Human Default. We were trying to figure out if the work was a painting or sculpture, but from what we can tell, its a photo manipulation. We still approve.

Street Stone by Alexis Persani & Leo Caillard

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 29, 2012
Put a flannel on it. Artists and art directors Alexis Persani & Leo Caillard have collaborated on a series called "Street Stone," taking stone sculptures and photo-manipulating them to be adorned in the latest fashion trends. A fun spin on contemporary culture and classic sculptural art.

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.
