The Demented, Incredible Ceramic Works of Clayton Bailey

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 18, 2013
Sometimes someone so awesome lives in our backyard and we didn't even know it. For the past few years, we have been seeing the demented, surreal, incredible ceramic and sculpture work of Crockett, California-based artist Clayton Bailey floating around Tumblrs and blogs, but our colleague walked in our office the other day with a whole explanation of how amazing this man really is. Active in the art community since the 1960s, and a teacher in Wisconsin and Northern California throughout the '60s as well, Clayton just celebrated a 50 year retrospective at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento in 2011.

Incredible Sculpture Works by Johnson Tsang

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 17, 2013
We have shown you the crazy liquid kiss sculptures by Mr Tsang on the site before, and today we have a look at the wide-range of sculpture works that the artist is capable of. His work is both surreal and photoreal, and takes porcelain and steel and transforms them into fine art and other-worldly scenarios.

Christopher Coppers' Sculptural Magazine Pieces

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 14, 2013
We are both impressed and slightly bummed we hadn't thought of this before, although we're sure we wouldn't have done such a great job. Artist Christopher Coppers takes regular magazines and often based on both the cover and the content inside, will meticulously cut out, or fray, or fold the pages in some way to turn them into meaningful pieces of art! Even sometimes making art out of Art magazines!

"The Art of the Brick," a LEGO art show by Nathan Sawaya

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 13, 2013
Like a lot of kids, LEGOs were a huge part of our childhood. There is no way we are getting rid of those 3 giant boxes of plastic bricks in our closet! Because of the incredible amount of dedication we put into building plastic space ships as a kid, we are proud that "adults' are out there still "playing" with them, and as it seems in Nathan Sawaya's case, making a career out of it!
