Boris "DELTA" Tellegen x Case Studyo: "A Concrete Toy" http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/boris-delta-tellegen-x-case-studyo-a-concrete-toy http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/boris-delta-tellegen-x-case-studyo-a-concrete-toy Boris
Boris "DELTA" Tellegen has long been one of our favorirte artists in Europe, unique as both a graffiti writer and fine artist. The Dutch artist is teaming up with the great team at Case Studyo in Belgium for a special new sculpture edition, and as Case told us, "For Boris it made sense to execute this 'toy' robot again in concrete this time, the least child friendly material you can imagine..."

In the Magazine: The Sucklord http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/in-the-magazine-the-sucklord http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/in-the-magazine-the-sucklord In the Magazine: The Sucklord
Morgan Phillips and his alter ego, The Sucklord, have created a singular sweet spot between fine art and lowbrow. His tools are not traditional paintbrush on canvas but rather a reclaiming of the commercial toy industry, specifically targeting the ubiquitous packaged action figure. The Sucklord reigns supreme over a world that is at the same time fantastical and acutely transparent. Toiling over toxic resins, blister packs and poor working conditions, The Sucklord brings us the best of the worst in reimagined popular culture.

Sucklord "Toy Lords of Chinatown" http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/watch-sucklord-toy-lords-of-chinatown http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/watch-sucklord-toy-lords-of-chinatown Sucklord
"The work presented in this exhibit is a documentation of my struggle to reach the top of a sinister pyramid scheme; a culture-jacking enterprise where ruthless-yet-compelling super-criminals compete for the imaginations of fickle consumers and a relentless media machine." - Sucklord on his 2011 Suckadelic retrospective gallery exhibition, “You’re An Asshole For Buying This.”

"Mr. Dictator Head" and Other Sculptures by Stephen Ives http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/mr-dictator-head-and-other-sculptures-by-stephen-ives http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/mr-dictator-head-and-other-sculptures-by-stephen-ives
The all-popular Mr. Potato Head gets a fantastic makeover with Melbourne-based artist Stephen Ives series of sculptures, "Mr. Dictator Head." The artist's other plastic toy figures are often humorous, sometimes disturbing (as re-assembled toys often are) and always imaginative and inspired.
