At Studiolo in Zurich, Switzerland, Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami and British artist Oliver Payne have teamed up to create Perfect Cherry Blossom, a unique collaboration that focuses on symbols for "flourishing spring and peace" juxtaposed with images of violent Japanese Bullet Hell Games.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 03, 2012
When we were in Stavanger, Norway for Nuart 2011, one of the most impressive artists that we met was Vhils, the Portuguese fine artist who created this incredible indoor installation of duel skulls. In a decaying, beautilful old brewery, Vhils and crew carved out this piece right out of the wall. And, there were some great street pieces as well...

Back in July 2011, Richard Serra's large scale, site-specific sculpture Sequence was installed at the Cantor Arts Center at Standford University.

Erotica // Friday, December 30, 2011
Danza Partida is an erotic art video concepted by Alba Casanova, with an unusually eerie soundtrack to add to the surreal visuals. Edited by Marc Guardiola with music by U-MÄ. Creepy, beatiful visuals, might we add?

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 29, 2011
There was mixed reviews of the movie Drive in our office (lots of people loved it, others were a bit down on it), but we really enjoyed seeing this animated tribute to the Ryan Gosling-starring feature film by the duo of Tom Haugomat and Bruno Mangyoku. As we get to the close of 2011, nice to look back on some of the films that got people talking.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 28, 2011
One of our favorite interviews from this past year was our conversation with Harmony Korine, featured in our July issue in conjunction with his work on the yet-to-be-seen Rebel project. Korine teamed up with fashion line Proenza Schouler twice over the past two years on short films, the latter being Snowballs that premiered at Paris Fashion Week in late September. Watch and be slightly uncomfortable after the jump . . .
