Julie Nord has had solid showings at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, and this 2013's show was no exception. Around the time her show, "The Children," opened at V1, we published this interview with the Danish artist in the August 2013 print edition of Juxtapoz. And keeping with the Best of 2013 theme, this was one of our favorite features from the year that was...

Originally published on July 8, 2013: This morning we check-in with Montreal-based artist Jon Rafman. John started collecting screen captures of Google Street Views from a range of Street View blogs and his own exploration of the program. His Tumblr of his findings is one of the most fascinatiing world views, and art projects, we have seen in quite some time.

Originally published on July 10th, 2013: Even though this show closed last week at David Kordansky in Los Angeles, John Wesley's work, as always, looked fantastic. "Objects and Paintings includes paintings and sculptures from several periods in Wesley’s career; all of them point to the “eccentric precision,” as Dan Flavin described it in the show's catlogue, that has made him one of the indispensible American artists of the post-war period.

The Best of 2013 print edition takes us this Christmas morning to the works of Ben Jones, an artist who has blended a bit of digital art, comics, fine art, installation and animation into one of our favorite art careers going today. Having shown at Deitch Projects, done officially projects with The Simpsons, shown at Transmission LA at MOCA, and done work with Adult Swim, we were lucky to catch Jones at such a pivotal and busy point in his career.

Mark Ryden, a past cover artist, is widely considered the "god-father of pop surrealism," and his ouevre is nothing if not diverse in subject matter. His work is inspired by objects, figures and myths that evoke mystery and nostalgia, therefore it stands to reason that Santa would make an appearance (along with Jesus, every now and then). To get you into the holiday spirit we've assembled Ryden's more wintry works, replete with imagined arctic animals, religious ephemera, and even an underwater St. Nick.

Another look into the archives of our print edition in 2013 brings us to one of our favorite issues of the year, the June 2013 Beastie Boys issue. We covered the history behind the iconic album covers and artwork that help create the visual identity of the band, and one of the most unlikely but profound covers was 1994's Ill Communication shot by Magnum photographer, Bruce Davidson. Shot years before, the ADRock loved Davidson's work, and chose this image of the man speaking into the intercom... the rest is in Davidson's words.
