Swampy: Under the Bridge

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 17, 2012
We never really want to classify someone like Swampy into “street art” or “graffiti” or anywhere for that matter. He kind of transcends all of them, much like a majority of artists working in the streets these days. In this picture, he’s the guy doing the roller on a sunny day in California under a bridge.

Photo Manipulations by Erik Johansson

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 14, 2012
A fun series of photo manipulations and fantasy settings by Swedish photographer and retoucher, Erik Johansson. Although he graduated with a degree in computer engineering, he had a passion for photography and was able to fuse the two together.

Picasso: Light Drawings

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 14, 2012
In 1949, LIFE magazine's Gijon Mili visited and documented Pablo Picasso in the South of France. Mili was known for technical innovations, and Picasso, appear of Mili's talents, wanted to try and few experiments of his own. Alas, these light drawings were part of the documentation. Did Picasso like shirts?

Animatronic Muses by Nur Moo

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 13, 2012
Nur Moo is a mainly a photographer and art director in Parma, Italy, though her series of animatronic models caught my attention, in some futuristic, Svedka sort of way. With slightly creepy, dark undertones, her digitally created works of less than human feminine figures are seen throughout her portfolio, peeking in between her erotic photography.

Landscapes by Levi van Veluw

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 12, 2012
This 4-piece series reinterprets the traditional landscape painting, removing plots of grass, clusters of trees, babbling brooks from their intimate 2 dimensional formats and transposing them onto the 3 dimensional contours of his own face. Thus a fresh twist is given to the obsession inherent in the romantic landscape of recreating the world and simultaneously being part of it. The romantic landscape and self-portrait genres are combined as a means of re-examination.

Bernhard Handick's Sculptural Photography

Erotica // Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Bernhard Handick is a young German artist and art-director of Shoutout-Magazine. With a German father and a mother from Sri-Lanka, Bernhard grew up in a multi cultural environment which he enjoyed a lot. He’s currently studying at the Folkwang university, working on his finals to get his diploma. Bernhard approaches photography as sculpting; arranging a picture like a painter and compose different sounds and layers like a musician.

Photography by Magdalena Wosinska

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 07, 2012
The work of Magdalena Wosinska is portrayed in a the same manner of a visual diary, adventurous and full of life. 'She is shooting everything from stunning nudes in barren Icelandic landscapes to the gritty fringes of the Californian skate and metal scenes. Her photos capture an incredible vibrance – a kind of seventies revival – young, bare and overwhelmingly, alive.'

The Surreal Photography of Joel Robinson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 05, 2012
Love these surreal photography of Canadian artist, Joel Robinson, where he has plants and trees emerging from the veins of an anonymous human arm. A great attention to detail, as well as a concept of human's connection to nature and the Earth, Robinson doesn't go overboard with effects. Just an organic style and simple approach. 

Boris Hoppek "Spanning Erotic Space and Time"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 04, 2012
Boris Hoppek (born 1970, in Kreuztal) is a German contemporary artist based in Barcelona. His artistic roots lie in graffiti, but today his work spans painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation art. His work has been used in advertising campaigns as well. Hoppek's trademark is a symmetric oval, which appears in most of his work either alone or in a constellation of three, thus forming a face.
