Sand Sculptures by Carl Jara

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, January 04, 2012
There are sand castles contests that produce amazing work, but these pieces by Carl Jara are double-take worthy. The Cleveland, Ohio-based artist says that he sculpts things would never expect to see at a sand castle competition. Well that makes a lot of sense after looking at these pieces.

Banksy "Fallen Soldier" Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 20, 2011
What we have always enjoyed about Banksy is that over the years he tends to release work in waves, and we are definitely on major workflow wave with the British artist. After his Cardinal Sin sculpture was exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool last week, Banksy just updated his site with this new work, the Fallen Soldier.

Marc Quinn is an artist that uses an array of different materials, from gold to plaster to blood, as he creates his work that dances on the line between cerebral and sexual.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 15, 2011
The news keeps coming; Banksy just placed a new sculpture, Cardinal Sin, at Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England. The piece, made in response to the child abuse scandals that the church seems to be known for these days, features a face taken off and replaced by blank bathroom tiles. Banksy noted in a statement, ":I'm never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one."

Sculpture Art by China's Chen Wenling

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 09, 2011
Chinese sculpture artist, Chen Wenling, created one of our favorite installation pieces we have seen in the past few years (after the jump), and it has taken us some time to get some more pieces of his work up on the site. That piece, titled What You See Might Not Be Real, sums up the Wall Street debacles of the past 4 years quite well.

What have you got in your head? by Sara Asnaghi

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 08, 2011
What have we got in our heads right now? Not much. We just woke up. But Sara Asnaghi has some theories. She created a series of brain copies made from food, such as sugar, barley, candy, chili, black rice, and even went as far as to create a brain sandwich (made from bread crumbs and painted clay, can't really eat that now can you Sara? Unless you were a baby who didn't know any better).
