The Dead Fly by Florentijn Hofman

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 03, 2012
We have shown the work of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, on the site before. This time, the artist has just created a site-specific sculpture/installation for the Mexican animation event Cut Out Fest. The Dead Fly is just that; a gigantic dead fly, belly-up, on a rooftop in Querétaro. The piece was made in conjunction of the Day of Dead festivities.

Faile's "Wolf Within" in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 01, 2012
Last month was busy, so busy we forgot to mention that Brooklyn-based collective, Faile, installed a sculpture entitled “Wolf Within” at the National Garden Park in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The piece depicts a man on his knees cloaked in a wolf pelt tearing away at his two-piece suit.

Clay Works by Beth Stichter

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 30, 2012
Pasadena, California artist Beth Stichter isn’t your typical sclupture - she builds her stoneware sculptures solid on metal armatures, often with 2,000 or more pounds of clay at a time, then cuts the piece into 30-160 sections, hollows each section out to 1/4" thickness, and reassembles them before firing. In order to work on a larger scale, the reassembled hollow pieces are then cut again to fit inside the kiln, fired, and then reassembled with glues and epoxies.

The Avoid Conversation Table by Michael Beitz

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 28, 2012
This could come in handy on those awkward dinner time arguments, or better yet, a really bad date. Michael Beitz has created the "avoid conversation dining table," featuring a central hump in the middle to obstruct the diner at the other end of the table. You will now be speaking to a piece of wood. 

Sand Castles by Calvin Seibert

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 27, 2012
We have been waiting to see work like this for quite some time, not that we don't love a detailed sand sculpture of the Simpsons. We just wanted to see something simple, geometric, and patterned from someone on the beach, and Calvin Seibert has such a clean approach, we can't believe he gets this completed so close to a danger zone. The danger being a wave that feels like extending itself just a tad further.

Video: Kaws's "Companion" Debuts tomorrow at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Street Art // Wednesday, November 21, 2012
The 86th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade along New York’s Central Park goes down tomorrow, meaning plenty of massive balloon characters, custom floats, marching bands, and all things visually and musically loud. This will be the first time since Keith Haring that an artist who began his career in graffiti has contributed to the parade. Brian Donnelly aka Kaws, will have his signature character “Companion” floating high above in the balloon line-up, a unique opportunity for any artist.

Drying of Thoughts by Lido Rico

Juxtapoz // Saturday, November 17, 2012
Lidó Rico suffers and, as in his paradoxical imaginary, he enjoys building his own body, his process has a little bit of performance or action painting.(45) What we ha ve isn’t the remaining, and nor the process is something unessential, on the contrary, immersion and the final sculptural body, the act of getting into plaster and the figure coming out of the wall are, in all senses, the same work of art....

Patrick Dougherty's "Ballroom" outside Melbourne's Federation Square

Street Art // Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Similar to the evasive plant Kudzu here in America, the Australian willow tree has become a nuisance and problem for other vegetation, even affecting the habitat of fish and local wildlife.  Dougherty recognizes the over abundance of the willow tree saplings and sticks utilizing them for this outdoor sculpture in part of his “Stickwork” series.

Hair Sculptures by Tress Agoche

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 12, 2012
We woke up this morning to a unique update in our mailbox, a friend sending us pictures of the incredible hair sculptures by French hairdreseer, Tress Agoche. The artists note, "it is a vision of a new era which gives birth to an evolved future where the audience experiences the gift that is woman. In this, we create a capsule of work that becomes timeless and unbound, a vision for future observers to witness. Indefinite and inevitable, this future will exist."
