Plastic Garbage Guarding the Museum by Luzinterruptus

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Currently at the Gewerbemuseum in Winthertur, Switzerland is the exhibition, Oh, Plastiksack, an exhibition dedicated to the plastic bag as an everyday item and as a focus for art and design. This much-discussed plastic product is explored in the context of society and the environment and as a theme of contemporary artistic work in the fields of painting, photography, installation, performance, urban art and design. One of our favorite collectives of the moment, Spain's Luzinterruptus have made a significant contribution to the show...

Blu in Ordes, Spain

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We can only assume that Italian muralist, Blu, is a healthy man with a good juicer. For the DesordesCreativas festival in Ordes, Spain, Blu painted this odd to healthy eating and vegetarian lifestyle. Thousands of veggies and fruits, all getting ready, excited, to jump into the blender of life. A good smoothie is born. 

The Works of REMED

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
Featured in our August 2012 issue is French-born, Spain based fine artist and muralist REMED. What first attracted us to REMED? Simple; his use of color to create simple, flowing characters reminded us of the great abstract artist that came before him. But this application to the street works have brought international attention to REMED, and we think this is as good as time as any to showcase a range of the artist's work.

Maria Corte and the Body as Geometry

Erotica // Friday, July 27, 2012
  'María Corte (Barcelona, Spain, 1983) studied Illustration at the Escola Massana in Barcelona, where she graduated in 2009... Her work is dominated by an interest in the disruption of space through a creative handling of geometric shapes and the breakdown of all classical conventions in the representation of the human body...'

Escif: Markets Welcome Us

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 24, 2012
February 2011 cover artist Escif’s politically conscious and thought provoking street work continually makes a strong impression on us. Unlike the majority of artists creating work in the public for “fame” purposes, Escif attempts to bring awareness to many of the current political and social issues of Spain.

Tilt-Shift Spain: A Film by Joerg Daiber

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 18, 2012
We think that the whole tilt-shift trend is still something rather magical, a hallucinatory feeling but rooted in reality. Joerg Daiber's film focues on Spain, specifically the cities of Madrid, Seville, and El Chorro. The tagline reads: "Broke, But Beautiful." Well, we guess that is one way to put it. 

New Hyuro piece in Valencia

Street Art // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Many street artists feel the need to create large-scale work, however the smaller pieces that are site specific are just as impactful.  Spanish muralist, Hyuro is a great example of an artist working on a smaller scale, with strong imagery, and her work stands out among the rest.  This newest piece, which we believe to be inspired by a Ryan McGinley photograph was painted in Valencia, Spain where you can see plenty of her other work in the streets.

Remed x Okuda @ Delimbo Gallery, Sevilla

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 07, 2012
The collaborative works of artists, Remed and Okuda, for the group show “ESTO NO ES GRAFFITI” at Delimbo Gallery in Sevilla, Spain, are quite impressive. Remed’s fusion of strong shapes and rich color palette combined with Okunda’s monotone figures compliment each other perfectly. Remed has something special coming up soon in our printed magazine department. Keep an eye out!

Sculptural Musical Chairs by Estudion Mariscal

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 04, 2012
We gave you oversized installation objects by Lilian Bourgeat the other day, which served as a sort of interesting take on over indulgence. Today, we found out about a recent public art project from Spain's Estudion Mariscal, featuring extremely large patio chairs displayed in front of the Valladolid Hospital in Valladolid, Spain.
