12,000 Toy Soldier Peace Sign by Ole Ukena

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
German conceptual artist Ole Ukena creates humorous and intriguing works of art, interweaving a variety of media including text, video, photography, drawing and sculpture. They could be described as bound by a common thread of complex simplicity. From his peace sign constructed of 12,000 toy soldiers to his bench made of nails and reading "trust," Ole's work frequently uses language, whether it be symbols or actual text, to build riddles 'that await completion in the viewer's mind.'

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 12, 2013
We remember playing with our cheap white bread when we were a kid, smashing and rolling it into balls, so we weren't surprised so much as impressed by Polish artist Milena Korolczuk's food sculptures. She has taken playing with her food to a whole new level, sculpting tiny heads of historic figures from Plato and Lenin to pop artists like Andy Warhol and rappers like Jay-Z.

Kaws Reimagines Iconic MTV Video Music Awards' Moonman

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Kaws is no stranger to embedding himself in popular culture, albeit through his own lens and artistic style. The NYC-based artist has seen his work in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, on Kanye West albums, and other fashion house identities. Recently, the artist was tasked with the project to reimagine the iconic MTV Moonman statue, given out to winners at the Video Music Awards. Seeing that the MTV VMA's used to be the standard bearer of all things Generation X, or Y, or whatever, where you got to see Nirvana call out Guns N' Roses while the adults watched Phil Collins take home another Grammy, we think this is a great project to take on.
