Natalia Rak's Legend Of Giants

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 07, 2013
Polish street artist, Natalia Rak, created this piece entitled, The Legend of Giants, a young girl in traditional Polish garb, watering a local tree.  Rak seems to have broken through a lot of trends in public art as of late, adding a clearly present feminine emotion to her work, essentially telling a story.  An exaggerated soft-tone fills the side of this 4-story building, almost as if the piece had brush strokes, not sprayed.  Which feels unfamiliar when compared to the more mechanical or deconstructed work we see today.

Vintage Polish album covers

Tiny Heads Sculpted from Wonder Bread

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We remember playing with our cheap white bread when we were a kid, smashing and rolling it into balls, so we weren't surprised so much as impressed by Polish artist Milena Korolczuk's food sculptures. She has taken playing with her food to a whole new level, sculpting tiny heads of historic figures from Plato and Lenin to pop artists like Andy Warhol and rappers like Jay-Z. 

The 'Sandwich Book' by Pawel Piotrowski

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
We like sandwiches a lot. We thought our love of sandwiches was unmatched. Then we saw the genius of the 'Sandwich Book' by Polish photographer, illustrator and graphic designer Pawel Piotrowski. We are hoping he continues his project and creates a whole menu of 'Sandwich Books...' Very rarely does art make us hungry.

The Work of Robert Proch

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 24, 2013
Poland-based artist, Robert Proch works in a variety of mediums including illustration, painting, street art, and animation.  Exceptionally talented at conveying movement in his work, his stylistic approach is refreshing.
