Rio de Janeiro based artist Luiz Zerbini's work combines a myriad of sources, borrowing from the cityscapes of Rio, art history, and pop culture. Everything is dislocated in his work: the landscape loses its depth, and the grid gains it.

Sao Paulo-based fine aritst Thais Beltrame, who we have featured in the magazine and profiled on the site in the past, is set to open a brand new solo show, Where I'm Not (Onde Não Estou) at Galeria Movimento in Rio de Janeiro, tonight, October 10. Beltrame's works always seem to carry with them a literary quality, layered storytelling techniques, and a quiet energy of her own universe.

We recognized Score had talents for spraying his name on walls, but this video of a recent trip of his to Rio De Janeiro displays his ability to create an entertaining video that documents his travel experiences. This is certainly not like the majority of graffiti videos being made currently. Set to a thoughtfully chosen soundtrack, this should be motivation to go visit Rio or bet yet, South America as a whole.

Think how many large fish sculptures could be created out of one days worth of world consumption of plastic water bottles, it would be much larger than a school of fish. In conjunction with the UN Conference of Sustainable Development (Rio+20) a number of illuminated fish sculptures were created from discarded plastic bottles in Rio De Janeiro.

If you were ever going to trust Juxtapoz when we say please stay with this video until about 2:15 seconds in, then this is the one video to listen to us. The City of Samba was shot during the Carnaval party in Rio de Janeiro in 2011, and features some of the most interesting camera/video work we have seen in quite some time. Just when you think you are watching an animation, look again...
