The Psychedelic Marbles of Mike Gong

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 16, 2015
Mike Gong hasn't lost his marbles. He's selling them. His intricate, pscychedelic designs, each a clash of bright colors, are embedded in tiny glass globes. These miniature glass art pieces range in diameter from about 13mm to 50mm, and as you turn them, the design shifts. They feature both abstract patterns and, in his Acid Eaters collection, the more direct: monstrous faces holding tabs of acid on their tongues. 

Marco Kalach’s "Óxidos Oníricos" Show in Mexico City

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Marco Kalach’s Óxidos Oníricos is a take on the matter and the unconscious. Amongst the corroded bronze sculptures of abstract animal forms and amazingly crafted spiked figures, the oil paintings – going from figurative to abstract and jumping to geometrical representations of the city – this world that is trying to escape the artist, seems all at once chaotic and incredibly poetic.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Thinking big has its ups and downs, but yes, the yacht game for too long has been dominated by design that was, well, yacht-like. Vasily Klyukin, a Russian businessman who seems to be very wealthy (he boasts on his site that he is "thefirst potential space tourist from Monaco"), has set his sites on making the best and most outrageous yacht designs. Take a look. We want the Swan.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We are trying to take in what Sarah Deremer is doing on this project, but we like it. What designboom notes is that "for her digital series ‘balloon zoo’, los angeles-based artist sarah deremer has realized a realistic rendition of childhood-favorite inflatables." So we have balloon sculptures being improved as realistic animals. Okay, we approve...

Everyday Objects, just bigger and pretty amazing

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We like what is going on here: artist Rómulo Celdrán has taken everyday objects and moments, down to the bite marks on a pen cap, and created larger-than-life sculptures. Not large in a multi-storied sense, but scaled large and with so much detail, so much realistic elements, that its quite incredible.

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 10, 2015
Katharine Morling, an award-winning ceramic artist, has been creating sculptures in porcelain inspired by her personal narrative since 2003. Her signature monochromatic style is highlighted by the fact that her work is fired without glaze, accentuating the drawn quality of the work.

Dennis McNett's The Serpent of Sheboygan

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 09, 2015
Thousands of years after the flames of Ragnarok had burned over the earth and the smoke from the fires blocked the sun from warming the planet, there came a great age of ice. Energies and information of the great gods and giants were scattered and lost across mountains, seas, winds and giant glaciers.
