More Salt Sculptures by Motoi Yamammoto

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 05, 2013
This isn't the first time we have posted the incredible work of acclaimed Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto. He has been on a roll lately, travelling around the world creating his labor-intensive salt installations. Prior to his two-week residency at the Monterey Museum of Art, he installed his Floating Garden project at the Mint Museum in North Carolina. Each project involves painstakingly pouring salt in patterns on the floor for several weeks.

Hu Shaoming's Upside-Down Metropolis

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 03, 2013
Chinese sculptor Hu Shaoming used steel components from everyday life: buttons, metal collars, handles, utensils and other random pieces to construct this incredible upside-down city entitled "Umbrella." There are around 2,000 separate buildings in the piece and each structure features its own architecture. "...Though Shaoming reflects on the loss of traditional Chinese culture as a whole. The parasol being a symbol of the past, the buildings grow further from it whith time."

Insane Sculpture Works by Chris Riccardo

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Well, a good way to wake in the morning, in our opinion, is to just get right into the bizarre. And that is what we have in these visionary and creepy sculptures by Chris Riccardo, who takes grotesque sexuality and just interesting characters to a whole new level in his sculptures.

We like tree houses and we like Bonsai. Naturally, we love Bonsai tree houses. We are also down with Michelin man hotels. Japanese artist Takanori Aiba uses stone clay, epoxy putty, copper line, plastic, and resin among other things to construct these fantastic pieces. Aiba's background includes being an art director for architectural spaces and a maze illustrator. The sketches for the sculptures are also wonderful.

Digital Grotesque's Digitally Printed Room with 80 Million Surfaces

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 28, 2013
It seems like in the last year, even last couple of months; digital printing technology is advancing at a ridiculous speed and being experimented with in every aspect of our lives. NASA is printing food for astronauts, there are 3D printed fashion shows, sculpture making robots, and you can even get your own personal desktop 3D printer. Now we are printing architecture. Digital Grotesque used digital fabrication techniques to construct a room with eighty million surfaces and preceded to guild the entire thing in gold. Watch a video after the jump!

Ahmed notes that by re-structuring and re-imagining the iconic symbol he is "destorying the stereotypes of tradition to create new modern boundaries..."
