Portraits Made From Screws by Andrew Meyers

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
We're having fun this Friday morning with German-born, Spain-raised, and California-based artist Andrew Meyers and his portraits made from screws. Using thousands of screws, the artist drives them in at different depths to give the piece a unique sense of texture 3 dimensionality. Once the screws are in, he will paint over each individual (often 7,000-10,000) screw head by hand to create the finish portrait.

This morning we take a look at Slovakian artist Tomas Libertiny's Beeswax, Steel, Glass, Plastic, and Resin sculptures that are then placed in a transparent case with thousands of bees who over time turn it into a honeycomb structure. Awesome.

Anatoforms by Bogdan Rata

Erotica // Monday, July 22, 2013
Romanian scultpor Bogdan Rata's brand of hybrid realism engenders bizarre combinations of human anatomy based on a "forgotten future," producing "replications of reality" reminiscent of the virtual world of Blade Runner. Through his sculptural recombination and multiplication of genetic traits, Rata creates entirely new and unfunctional life forms, like the failed, grotesque results of secret human experiments, where sexual organs are rendered functionless on deformed torsos, and faces are wiped clean of their identifying and sensory features.

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 19, 2013
We have to be honest, we're still don't completely understand how 3D printing works. Nonetheless, we are loving the huge advancements the technology has made and what people have been able to produce using them. From the printer that makes sculptures to NASA 3D printing food, it all seems like a ton of fun. Architecture graduate students LIz and Kyle von Hasseln have used it to print sugar for the top of a cake. Awesome.

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.'
