New works by Sweden's Markus Åkesson

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
We saw these new works by Swedish fine artist, Markus Akesson, yesterday, and they stayed in the back of our mind's all night, so we figured that must be a sign. The new paintings, most of them shown here, are set to be on display at the VIDA Museum in Borgholm, Sweden, from August 18 to September 30, 2012. The works are all oil on linen.

New Mattias Adolfsson Sketchbook Works

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 07, 2012
It is no secret, we love the illustrative works of Swedish artist, Mattias Adolfsson. And, again, no secret that one of our favorite past times is looking in the Moleskines of our favorite illustrators, because, sometimes, that is where the real pirate's treasure lies. For Adolfsson, this is no exception. 

Big Fat Joe

Tattoo // Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Big Fat Joe is a tattooer and DJ from Sweden. With only three years of inking under his belt, his portfolio is filled with a ton of unique tatts. Here is how he describes a typical work day- "I wake up at nine, get a shower and pet the cats. After that I walk into the studio to draw the tattoos for the day and have a quick salad. The work all day til seven or eight, clean my gear and sterilise and finally walk home. That’s my weekday. On the weekend I play rockabilly records in bars and drink a few beers."

Delicate Photo from Hanna Hak

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.

Blade Runner as Watercolors, Part 1

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 02, 2012
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.

New Works by Ekta

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 30, 2012
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.

The Work of Marcus Gunnar

Juxtapoz // Saturday, March 24, 2012
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!

Sunday Walks by Arne Lind

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 16, 2012
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.

Interiors and Exteriors by Mamma Anderson

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 17, 2011
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.

Photography by Sweden's Ida Nordung

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 07, 2011
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.
