Street Art // Thursday, June 21, 2012
Think how many large fish sculptures could be created out of one days worth of world consumption of plastic water bottles, it would be much larger than a school of fish.  In conjunction with the UN Conference of Sustainable Development (Rio+20) a number of illuminated fish sculptures were created from discarded plastic bottles in Rio De Janeiro.

This isn't the first time we have posted about Jason Freeny and his dissection of pop-culture toys (see Care Bears), but we have to hand it to him on these giant LEGO men that he has sculpted and, of course, dissected.

Naughty Ceramics by Chris Antemann

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 14, 2012
Case in point, I will set the scene. I was at my grandparents house, looking at all their fine china and ceramic plates and "sculptures" (I am being generous), and wondering, "what will my house look like when I am 88-years old?" I may not be able to swing the naughty, slightly dirty ceramic sculptures of Chris Antemann, but we are getting a bit closer.
