A brief look at the work of Mexican artist Alejandrina Herrera. Juxtapoz describes Herrera's work by observing that she "likes to include a touch of irony and melancholy by playing with the size of things and spaces" in a number of her works. Her use of color, or lack thereof is also stark, adding to the melancholia Juxtapoz notes. The size disparities evident in many of her works also intimates a political awareness in her work which at first glance may need seem readily apparent.

Here's a new twist to the term "comic book art." Check out this series of collages by Mike Alcanatara who uses nothing other than the pages of his favorite super heroes' comic books - no paint, no ink, no markers. I'd love to see a video demonstration on the production of one of these. via JUX

Have a look at French artist Daniel Castan's kaleidoscopic acrylic studies of New York. One piece can either jump out at you with vivid splashes of color, while another may sit coolly waiting for you to jump into it. Castan's work reminds one of a modern impressionist in the traditions of a Claude Monet or Édouard Manet - only instead of painting ships in the harbor at Sunrise or A Bar at the Folies-Bergère, Castan depicts New York's Times Square at night or the city streets in the rain. via WHUDAT
There are great photographers and then there are greater photographers - but then there's the next level ...and then there's Neil Krug. Case in point, Neil's collection of photographs taken with The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) & The Depraved (2011) actress Nathalie Kelley as his subject.
From the personal collection of Michael Taylor we take yet another look at some vintage poster art of Cuba's Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa and Latin America.
