We have written on the site before about how big of fans we are of the drawings of Moonassi, aka Daehyun Kim, and we ran across the new album cover the artist created for the band Reedbeds and their album Basement Grotto. Done in conjunction with the label, SicSic, we love the simple elegance of a ink of paper drawing. You have to check the details after the jump . . .

If you are a human, which we assume you are, then you have to be impressed and probably have watched the amazing, 24-mile skydive-human flying-jump by Felix Baumgartner this past weekend. Of course, these things can't be immortalized unless they are Lego-ized. Which has been done now at Vienna’s Model Maker Fair.

We are devout Raymond Pettibon fans. His combined use of mark making, text, and a signature comic-book style is the best of its kind. On view at Georg Kargl's BOX exhibition space in Vienna are some of Pettibon's earlier works from the 1980s. If we were in Vienna right now, we would be drooling over some of these drawings. For all you non Viennese readers, go on a vacation and check them out while they're still up.

Austrian-based dissection artist, Nychos, recently painted this lengthy sectioned crocodile with a skeleton in its intestines somewhere on a building in Vitry, France. His work is getting cleaner and more distinct with each new piece, a natural progression for someone who produces such a high volume of work. This mural is one of our favorite yet!

The streets of Vienna recently received an upgraded with two fantastic new murals by street artist, Nychos. The first wall titled “Splatterface” depicts a sectioned head that looks as if it may be exploding. While the second wall tilted “A slice of Tuna” displays a sectioned Tuna with a skeleton inside.

This is one of the best photo series we can remember in recent memory; Klaus Pichler was granted access behind the scenes at the Vienna Museum of Natural History to chronicle their taxidermy collection. What he captured was an odd combination of taxidermy in the most random of scenarios, from bears on elevators to sharks creeping around corners.

We are huge fans of Vienna, Austria-based fine artist duo, Asgar/Gabriel, who create masterful, dirty, large-format paintings of sex, debauchery, and anarchy. Good stuff all and all. Asgar/Gabriel open a new exhibition, Under the Paving Stones, the Beach, at Kunsthallen Brandts, in Odense, Denmark.

Moussa Kone is an illustrator living and working in Vienna, Austria. The entire body of work is really fascinating and beautiful, with illustrations that look like they represent the finding of a lost opera.
