In the Magazine: Leif Podhajsky

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 21, 2014
We are all, in our own fashion, constantly collecting. Over time, moments, experiences and visions accumulate within our own cerebral catalogs, compiling a personal database. Events and elements gather in the inner consciousness as we build and house a type of visual anthology. To the creatively inspired, this input can also become an output, almost as effortlessly as it was collected. Leif Podhajsky has mastered this process of visual remixing, creating psychotropic landscapes within his infinitely ethereal imagination. Provoked by defining experiences and visual attractions, Leif arranges these altered perceptions, visually melting reality together with dreamlike repetition and seductively combined overlay.

Stefan creates these fantastic, detailed, notebook-esque pencil drawings of various characters and a bit of dream scenarios around each's head. Simple, powerful, great work.

An interview with Slay

Writing long before the LA River became a huge buff Slay has been holding it down in Los Angeles. We got a chance to talk to him recently and chat about the crews he reps and how things have changed since the LA River days.

Hellen Van Meene

Photography // Sunday, July 20, 2014
Hellen Van Meene’s portraits of feminine youth float in a realm between fragility and power. The faces of each subject are the complete focal point of each square frame, supported by minimal locations and pastel walls. Today, these backgrounds may be commonly seen in contemporary portraiture but seem stylistically ahead of the game at the time that much Van Meene’s earlier work was created.
