Erotica // Sunday, July 29, 2012
Here is a photo that can be considered both tender and emotional- words not often used to describe a simple breast shot. Hanna Hak is the photographer who captured this intimate shot and is based out of Sweden.

Apparently, this is Part 1, and there will be more. Somebody who really, really loves Blade Runner (one thing we have learned while at Juxtapoz; people love Super Mario, Legos, Star Wars, and Ridley Scott, but you knew that) created the opening 12 minutes of the film using over 3285 aquarelle paintings. Harrison Ford's acting is better in watercolor form.

Ekta, one of our favorite Scandanavian street/fine artists who is currently based in Gothenburg, Sweden, has been on the site a number of times including an interview from this past year. Here we have a few fresh works by the Swede himself.

We don't know what it is but Stockholm, Sweden breeds some incredible illustrator and watercolor artists, Marcus Gunnar being another great one to add to the roster. Fluid, simple narratives mixed with some surreal imagery and a muted palette on that classic Moleskine cream. Thanks Marcus!

Arne Lind is a Stockholm-based photographer and designer that has been working since the 1960s. He also has an interest in carpentry and restored this 38-foot sailing vessel. This well-rounded Scandinavian has a lot of good work on his website. However we took interest in his photo series Sunday Walks.

Mamma Anderson is a Swedish painter and spouse of Jockum Nordstrom, one of our other favorite Swedish artists. Her paintings depict both the domestic interior and the desolate landscape, all with a haunting aura. The interiors have a portentous air with absent figures. The barren exteriors have moments of bleeding abstraction and an acrid color palette.

Swedish photographer Ida Nordung captures these perfectly beautiful, odd moments within these strange, minimal scenes that suggest an eery anonymity and loneliness that seems to be mostly set in the scenery of her Scandinavian home country: Sverige.

We have always wanted to stay at the famed Treehotel in the northern Swedish wilderness. It takes isolated luxury to a whole new level. One of the benefits of going is having your very own Fire In the Sky moment with the UFO treehouse. It ain't cheap at $600 a night, but isolation, a luxury treehouse, and UFOs should never come cheap.

Misaki Kawai, whom we have profiled in the magazine, has a great-appearing installation and exhibition, Big Bubbles, at Malmo Konsthall in Malmo, Sweden up through November 27. From the images we have seen, the exhibition almost looks like a children's fantasyland, with interactive installations and colorful characters.
Tattoo // Monday, October 17, 2011
Sometimes you just want to see a highly-skilled, traditional tattoo artist, and Malmö, Sweden's Peter Lagergren is one of those talents. There is so much good stuff coming out of Scandinavia right now in the arts, and Langergren's tattoo work is just another example.
