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.

UFO Treehouse at Treehotel, Sweden

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 27, 2011
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 @ Malmo Konsthall, Malmo, Sweden

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 24, 2011
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.

Tattoos by Sweden's Peter Lagergren

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.

Structural Illustrations by Clara Terne

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 14, 2011
Stockholm-based artist Clara Terne does a variety of collaborative and solo work in art direction, illustration, and graphic design. She graduated from Konstfack back in 2010 and now does work for a variety of clients around Europe. While perusing her work these illustrations caught our eye in particular.

Paintings by Sweden's Fredrik Akum

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 10, 2011
We just came across the paintings of Swedish artist Fredrik Akum today, and around the office, we are quite impressed with the work. Using acrylic, the young Akum looks as if he is recreating a photo filter application. A really nice collection of painting after the jump . . .

Iconatomy by George Chamoun

Juxtapoz // Friday, September 23, 2011
Swedish artist and jeweler George Chamoun created these digital collages by merging images of contemporary movie star icons with their counterparts from the past. Chamoun commented: The pictures are not morphed in any way. What you see is a collage of two different people in each picture. Did it take me a long time to find the right pictures? Hell yes it did!
