Juxtapoz has a very special guest for Episode 8 of the Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, and that is none other than the highly influential and imaginative graffiti-turned-fine-artist, Jason REVOK. The Los Angeles-based painter recently wrote an essay for our Winter 2019 issue, and with increasing presence as an experimental artist, with his custom-painting machines he has been using both on the street and in his studio, we wanted to talk to Jason about this evolution and how he has been able to grow as an artist in recent years. Produced and hosted by Doug Gillen of Fifth Wall TV and Evan Pricco, Editor-in-chief of Juxtapoz Magazine. Doug and Evan also discuss some of the upcoming shows and festivals on their radar, and, as always, a little fun banter about contemporary art.

Northern California is home to some of the world’s most gorgeous landscapes. From the Sierra to the Ocean, to mountains that touch the Pacific, the ethereal beauty is a work of art itself. For almost 40 years, Tom Killion has delicately archived the environmental majesty of California within the traditional process of Japanese-Style woodblock printmaking, creating stunning, colorful works through a handmade, ancient operation. We visited Tom at his Point Reyes studio to experience the comfort of a beginner’s state of mind. Video by: Alex Nicholson Produced by: Kristin Farr tomkillion.com

In September 2017, Juxtapoz Magazine celebrated the grand opening of the Urban Nation Museum in Berlin, Germany. To kick off the opening, Juxtapoz and the artist Grotesk donated the "Juxtapoz Newsstand" to the museum as a piece of graffiti and street art history from the magazine that has been covering the scene for over two decades. During opening week, we chatted with street art and graffiti legends Blek le Rat and Martha Cooper about the widespread impact that the culture has had around the world, and how they have seen this grassroots movement become an international phenomenon. Video filmed and directed by Fifth Wall TV (www.youtube.com/user/FifthWallTv) Music by Aesop Rock and Cosimo Fogg Thank you to everyone at Urban Nation for the support!

A never before seen video capture of graffiti and fine artist INSA's London studio. This was recorded during our interview with the artist for an article featured on the Juxtapoz Magazine September subscriber cover. "His Southeast London studio views more like the workshop of sexy elves than the creative base of a highly sought after contemporary artist. Coffee cups litter a worktable alongside spray cans and markers. Sawdust lines the floor, high heel prototypes perch next to staple guns and rows of pornographic lighters suggest an in-progress installation. A custom lowrider bike hangs from a wall opposing a four-foot square mechanical spinning lightbox with gold and chrome mirrored panels featuring Darlene from Ice-T's 1988 album Power." --Katie Zuppann, Juxtapoz Magazine September 2010 Song: "I'm Your Pusher" by Ice-T from the album 'Power' www.juxtapoz.com www.insaland.com

(27 Oct 2018) LEADIN: A new exhibition in Los Angeles is celebrating the US cult of custom cars. 'Auto-Didactic: The Juxtapoz School' features art, fashion and vehicles that represent the custom culture of the hot rod era that began in Southern California in the 1960s. STORYLINE: A colourful car exhibition with a difference is turning heads at the world renowned Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. 'Auto-Didactic: The Juxtapoz School' is intersecting cars and underground art. The work of more than 50 artists accompanies the car display to create an eclectic display that examines the works of Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine. The magazine was created in 1994 by a group of artists and collectors, including Robert Williams, C.R. Stecyk, Greg Escalante, and Eric Swenson, to define and celebrate urban alternative and underground contemporary art. This exhibit looks at the impact of the art and culture magazine and the Southern Californian 'Kustom Kulture' phenomenon - which is adapting cars, hot rods, surfboards, as well as urban and underground art. It includes works, ranging from sculpture and paintings to instruments and illustrations, from key artists such as Von Dutch and Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. C.R. Stecyk is the exhibition co-creator: "This exhibit is a compendium of art, be it sculpture, painting, automotive art, modified automobiles and kind of exhales the inner relationship of art culture and commentary between the two as propelled by motorized mechanized transport." Joseph Harper, co-curator, art historian and Assistant Curator at Petersen Automotive Museum says the museum sees cars beyond their purpose and highlights them. "Juxtapoz Magazine was founded in 1994 and it came out of an exhibit that happened here in Southern California called Kustom Kulture. Kustom Kulture is a movement that goes back to the 1960's where hot-rod culture sort of predominated and figures like Von Dutch or Ed "Big Daddy" Roth really became household names. Out of that exhibition many of the artists and people who organized it later started Juxtapoz magazine and we are now here 25 years after that founding along with the 25th anniversary of the Petersen Automotive Museum. We really wanted to explore where that connection has gone over the last quarter century," says Harper. The exhibition highlights notable custom cars including, a 1932 Ford Roadster named "Prickly Heat" that was restored in 2001. It is owned by Robert Williams, one of the founders of Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine. The car is widely considered the first definitive hot rod. Painted in shocking purple and chartreuse. "The Orbitron" by "Big Daddy" Roth was created in 1964. This fiberglass car has the aesthetic of the 1960s with asymmetrical design and bubble top. It was discovered in 2007 in Juarez, Mexico outside a bookstore. Stecyk says it went through extensive restoration. This 1970 Kenford Truck is by Von Dutch, well known for his creative and abstract designs. The truck which Dutch owned was crated by grafting a 1947 Kenworth cab to a 1956 Ford chassis. It was featured in the first issue of Juxtapoz as part of a feature article on him. The 1959 Cadillac titled "The New and Improved Ultima Suprema Deluxe 2012" by Kenny Scharf is a show stopper. It features pop culture icons, cartoon characters and futuristic scenes. It has creatures floating among space-age cultural symbols and outer worldly found objects, pop culture references and a retro-future timeline.

“The big brands use the street, so why not, if you’re an artist, use the street to let people see your work.” DB BURKEMAN - NYC What makes stickers so great is that they help you to customize your environment and make it yours. Whether it is a bedroom door, a freshman’s fridge, a laptop or a notebook, stickers help you in the appropriation of your surrounding. In a way, stickers activate the creative fiber in many individuals. Featuring: Shepard Fairey, El Toro, Dusty Rebel, DB Burkeman, Veng RWK, Above, Chris RWK, Royce Banon.

Ahead of her upcoming show at Merry Karnowski Gallery in Los Angeles this Saturday, we stopped by Deedee Cheriel's studio for a little visit! Deedee Cheriel transforms personal experience into folklore through an amalgam of influences both personal and universal. East Indian Art, spirituality, environmentalism, ritual, and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest all inform the artist's work and give context to often-personal narratives. Cheriel’s latest body of work, In Search For More Than Another Shiny Object, radiates a profound philosophical sense of self-awareness and hopefulness. The influence of music and song support themes of light, love and guardianship while the intimacy between Cheriel’s signature anthropomorphic characters engenders a sense of communal nurturing. The quest for more than a shiny object implies a much-needed social shift, and is a reflective of a personal and metaphorically balanced approach to life.
