How to Paint Traditional Chinese Landscapes with Roller Blades

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 13, 2015
Well this is something we definitely have never thought of.

Haisu says that wearing the skates make her feel like her whole body is involved. "I produce all kinds of ink landscapes, such creating is full of power, speed and rhythm."

Paintings by Anne Von Freyburg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 24, 2015
The recent works by Anne Von Freyburg explore the operation and inscrutability of aesthetics. The life-size mixed media tableaux show human-like figures in various states of transformation.
