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!

Sculpture by the Sea, 2013

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
Last week we posted an incredible sculpture by James Dive of the Glue Society where he compressed an entire mobile amusement park, rides, games, and prizes, into a 4m x 4m cube. This week we take a look through some of the other sculptures on view at Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark. The event features sculptural works from 64 artists from 22 countries. We are hoping that it's success means more sculpture festivals around the world!

Sand Sculpture Festival in North Somerset, England

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
There is nothing quite as much fun as playing on the beach, especially if sand castles are involved. We can attest to the fact that this enjoyment does not dissipate as we grow up and become "adults." It seems as though some "adults" have taken over the beaches of Weston in North Somerset England recently for the Sand Sculpture Festival. This year's theme was Hollywood and it resulted in some Hitchcock, Harry Potter, E.T., and Pirates of the Caribbean magic!

3D Miniature Paper Architecture by Ingrid Siliakus

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 07, 2013
Amsterdam-based artist Ingrid Siliakus' 3-dimensional pieces incorporate the structure and manner of pop-up books, some even collapsing into a 2-dimensional piece. Citing M.C. Escher and Antoni Gaudi as influences, Siliakus' miniature works of architecture are constructed with an almost dizzying intricacy.

Late this past winter, or friend Helen Soteriou headed from her homebase in London to Kemi, Finland to see one of the more awesome, bizarre, and crazy sculptures being made in the world, the SnowCastle.
