Jane Kim: The Migrating Mural Project

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 29, 2013
As you know reading our site over the years, we love mural projects, public art, and especially, public art in unexpected places (for example, see Escif & San's tour of the Southwest). That is why we are fascinated by Jane Kim, an artist, science illustrator, and founder of INK-DWELL Studio that has started the Migrating Mural project, a series of "murals painted along migration corridors shared by people and endangered animals."

Cyprien Gaillard and the Neon Cleveland Indian

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 28, 2013
Sometimes, the randomness of what icons make it into fine art blow our minds. Yes, the logo and mascot of the Cleveland Indians baseball team is iconic and has a certain vintage Americana design, but we would never thought it would be the basis of a fine art project, or public art project, in Berlin of all places. In 2011, fine artist Cyprien Gaillard placed the 10m tall Neon Indian on the Haus der Statistik at the Alexanderplatz in Berlin, putting it completely out of its baseball context.

Broken Fingaz in London

Street Art // Monday, January 28, 2013
Last month, several murals were painted in London by Tant and Unga who work under the collective name “Broken Fingaz.”  We thought these two packed the most punch, enjoy.

The Bay Lights: The SF Bay Bridge as Public Art

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 28, 2013
For the past year, we have been following famed artist Leo Villareal project to light up the Bay Bridge, the large suspension bridge that connects Oakland to San Francisco, California. He had proposed an LED light installation consisting of 25,000 white LEDs, spaced a foot apart for the west span of the bridge. On March 5, 2013, this will become a reality. The lights will have the function of changing, making abstract patterns based loosely on water, traffic, and weather patterns.

Philippe Baudelocque chalks Magnum Photo’s Paris office

Street Art // Sunday, January 27, 2013
We often post the chalk work of Paris-based artist, Philippe Baudelocque whenever we see something new pop up. His complex designs and patterns used to creat an array of different animals are some of the most interesting work we have seen created with chalk as the medium. The distinguished photography agency, Magnum Photo, had the artist draw this guerilla on the exterior of their Paris office.

Chicago Warehouse fire results in Ice Wonderland

Street Art // Saturday, January 26, 2013
This is the magnificent outcome of a five-alarm warehouse fire in Chicago that was extinguished in freezing temperatures. Two-hundred firefighters battled the fierce fire and the water sprayed apparently froze over instantly. Real life ice wonderland!

WaOne in Kerala, India

Street Art // Friday, January 25, 2013
The undeniably talented artist, WaOne of Interesni Kazki, has been leaving a trail of remarkable murals through the streets of India. His surreal esthetic and dreamlike imagery appears to work naturally with various themes of Indian culture. This beautiful piece was painted in the Southwest region of India in Kerala.

Converse x Juxtapoz: Wall To Wall Toronto featuring Troy Lovegates

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 24, 2013
Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the mural created in Toronto, Canada by artist Troy Lovegates. Lovegates, who you may know as OTHER, went with his signature multi-colored figurative style, adding a dreamlike, colorful addition to the Wall to Wall project.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 24, 2013
Recently, we did a walk down memory lane at Marc Quinn's incredible Planet bronze and steel sculpture,  displayed at the Beyond Limits exhibition in the gardens of Chatsworth House in the UK in 2008. Last week, we did a walk down 90 degrees near the equator in Singapore's Gardens By The Bay complex and saw the installation process of ... guess what... Marc Quinn's Planet sculpture. The sculpture was donated for permanent display at the Gardens by the Bay.
