The Works of Hiro Kurata

Juxtapoz // Thursday, September 27, 2012
Born in Osaka, Japan, Hiro Kurata has continued to craft an intricate story that ties together both Eastern and Western culture. Focusing on surrealistic moments, he illustrates his daily life through sports motif, chairs, and the stability of gentleness. However, the underlying theme of his work is both chaotic and restless.

Street Ball Photography by Scott Pommier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 28, 2012
Scott Pommier photographs motorcycles, fashion, cars, lacrosse, and portraits all with equal prowess, but here we have honed in on his street ball pictures. Each frame feels cinematic, with action, competitive tension, and hyper-focus dripping out of each sweaty image.

LEGO Olympics 2012 Aquatic Center

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 06, 2012
It could be center to some, centre to others. Either way, if you are going to host the Olympics, you better have some LEGO models ready for us all to see as well. In this case, a model of the 2012 Olympics Aquatic Center was built for the LUG Showcase in the Stratford LEGO store, next to the London 2012 Olympics park.

The 8-Bit Olympic Games

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 01, 2012
Admit it, you have a little bit of Olympic fever? We are paying attention far more than expected, and perhaps because London provides a familiar backdrop, we don't mind archery at 3AM anymore. Artists are getting into the spirit, and each Olympics that pass is a new opportunity for the creative community to apply their taste and sensibility to various sports. Flikli has produced a nice 8-bot montage of the Olympics, getting us one step closer to watching Fencing.

The Banksy Olympics

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 23, 2012
With the London Olympics set to open on Friday, July 27, everyone is getting into the celebratory/satirical mood. Banksy was going to miss this opportunity to land a few punches and comical jabs at the increasingly corporate games, and he just produced two new street pieces to show his "support" of the Olympics.

Jens Ullrich's Collage: A Fusion of Contemporary Sports and Classical Sculpture

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 23, 2012
Jens Ullrich's collages have struck a chord between the contemporary athlete and the classical sculpture, carefully aligning these majestically poised bodies of stone alongside the twisting and flexing muscles of the human form in motion, a visual delight that is quite a simple gesture that arouses several visual and historical discussions.

Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
An oldie but goodie-- 'In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas and artist James Blagden proudly present the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter.'

Illustration and Design by James Jessiman

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 29, 2012
Upon seeing the official 2012 Wimbledon poster, James Jessiman's contribution stood out to us. The graphic, print influenced image of a bouncing tennis ball is an essential distillation of what occurs in a tennis match, presenting a small, seemingly peripheral yet central detail that encompasses the movement of the game.

Jonas Wood @ David Kordansky, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 16, 2012
Jonas Wood, a fine artist famed in our coverage for his work with nostalgic sports paintings and drawings, has a new exhibition at David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles. The show features both sports and still-life paintings, as well as domestic and studio interiors.

In Sports, Super Bowl Weekend Edition: Honest NFL Logos

Juxtapoz // Saturday, February 04, 2012
We were pretty geeked on the NFL this year, especially seeing as our neighborhood team (literally) went 13-3 behind a memorably marauding defense. Beyond our beloved Niners in Paris, though, mediocrity and half-truths abounded league-wide, wonderfully illustrated by These Fries Are Good.
