Another Look: The Works of Hsiao Ron Cheng

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 11, 2013
We have always been a fan of the work of Taipei, Taiwan-based illustrator Hsiao Ron Cheng, and we noticed that there was an update on her site and wanted to share some of the new pieces."My work alludes to the deformation that physically separates children from plants and animals," she says. "The environments and situations that I paint are often of surrealist nature, reminiscent of school, and partly based on phantasy."

Video: FUZI UVTPK TAIWAN

Graffiti // Friday, October 04, 2013
Fuzi has been roaming all over the globe, primarily leaving ink on peoples skin in untraditional settings aka not tattoo parlors. The Parisian artist headed to Taiwan for the first time, which was well documented in this new video. His stay consisted of a little spray painting, tattooing and from what we could see in a quick frame, perhaps he made a visit to the cultural iconic, betel nut girls? We certainly did when we were there. How could you resist?

Paintings by Lo Chan Peng

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 04, 2013
We always love it when art makes us feel a little uncomfortable. Taiwanese artist Lo Chan Peng has an incredibly detailed and realistic style that he uses to paint zombie-like women whose attractiveness is offset by their unsettling features, empty gazes, missing limbs, and...fangs.

Human Movement Translated into Colorful Visuals

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Do you remember when your computer would freeze and you could drag the windows around, creating endless trails behind it? We think you can still do something similar to your mouse pointer somewhere in your settings... JL Design, a Taiwanese design firm, recently produced a colorful series translating human movement into visuals that remind us of that (except way way cooler). Using six motion-sensing cameras to capture the movements, the firm captures the different movements of a father and his daughter, dancers, a romantic couple, and a martial arts expert.

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 09, 2013
Finland-based artist, designer, and sculptor Marco Casagrande constructed four steel figures of men and placed them on a tidal short by Kinmen Island in Taiwan. Titled, Oysterman, the installation appear to be silhouettes of men standing on stilts as the tide rolls in.
