Animal Works by John Espinosa

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 18, 2011
John Espinosa's drawings and sculptures use animal forms and geometric shapes to create humorous juxtapositions that don't necessarily make sense, but are enjoyable nonetheless.

Wax Sculptures by Markus Fiedler

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 17, 2011
It seems hard enough to be a sculpture artist, and we don't know the complete nature of working with wax, but what we do know is that making these realistic wax sculptures like Markus Fiedler does is no easy feat. Incredible life-like work, including a full bass guitar, knives, french fries, guitar amp, and a book of wax.

Jim Denevan and his Earth Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 16, 2011
We know that a lot of people are aware of the earth sculptures of Jim Denevan (or better said, his sand sculpting), but we figure, summer is almost over, and there should be at least one nice beach/sand post this year. Incredible, delicate works using just the earth.

The Work of Jon Pylypchuck

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 10, 2011
Jon Pylypchuck's work is inspired by various stimuli including creepy men making out with their girlfriends in public, fear of his parents dying, family ghosts, personal struggles, and many other things.

Feature: An Interview with Shawn Smith

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 09, 2011
In the spirit of hyperreal sculpture, Shawn Smith’s pixel art blurs the line between real and simulated. But while the deceptively photoreal work of folks like Duane Hanson or Ron Mueck are, in fact, just sculpture, Smith flips the illusion on its head.

Metropolis II Kinectic Sculpture by Chris Burden

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 05, 2011
If you are going to take 5 minutes on this site today, we recommend checking out this documentary short on Chris Burden's amazing kinectic sculpture/installation piece, Metropolis II. Burden has taken 4 years to build the piece, using 1500 Hot Wheels, and will take the installation to Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) this Fall. 

A Survey of Work by Friedrich Kunath

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 05, 2011
Friedrich Kunath creates work that playfully reflects upon the many dilemmas of everyday life with a humorously morose undertone. Whether a television and a DVD player looping a film while soaking in a bathtub, a snail hauling a house on his back, one of his large colorful watercolor canvases . . .

In Erotica: The Sculptures of Mel Ramos

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 05, 2011
Renowned American Pop Artist, Mel Ramos is famous for his 1960?s superrealist paintings of Pin-up calendar girls, and his life size sculpural works are just as impressive with all the same elements as his paintings.

Washed Ashore: Plastics, Sea Life and Art @ Marine Mammal Center

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 04, 2011
We saw this exhibition advertised on a bus today, and we found it very interesting; Washed Ashore: Plastics, Sea Life and Art at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito shows 15 marine life sculptures all created from plastics and trash found in our world's oceans. The sculptures bring attention to the marine debris crisis.

David Poppie takes very oridinary, everyday objects (and some of them not-often used objects) and arranges them into colorful, conceptual sculptures. Some of the more impressive arrangements include his pencil, matchbook, and cassette tape pieces.
