123Klan @ Station 16, Montreal

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
A few months back in our print edition, we handed over the tourist agency duties of Montreal to 123Klan, where the French-born, Montreal based "graffiti posse" founded by husband and wife Scien & Mrs Klor in 1992, told us the best places to eat, drink, see art, or get some culture. One of the places they mentioned? Station 16. And you know what? Now 123Klan is opening of paintings at Station 16 from May 8-14, 2014.

Music Video: Flying Lotus "Phantasm" directed by Markus Hofko

Music // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
We saw this amazing video for Flying Lotus' track "Phantasm" from the album "Until the Quiet Comes," and was just reminded about how incredible it was when we saw it reposted on ItsNiceThat. Director Markus Hofko filmed this surreal adventure over two days on Desert Rd, on the North Island of New Zealand. He notes about the production: "2 characters and me behind the camera was all there was. Nice and simple. And complicated." Enjoy.

Soviet Anti-Alcohol Posters from the 1920s—60s

Design // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
The Soviets were really good at making poster art in the form of propaganda, so good that even the most horrible messages had a begrudgingly nice look. But we have to say, when the Soviet graphic artists wanted to tackle anti-alcohol subjects, they make it damn effective.

Photography // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
Bruce Davidson Time of Change: 1961-1965 opened at The Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco last week. Davidson, who was featured in our special June 2013 Beastie Boys issue, traveled by bus with the anti-segregationist Freedom Riders from Montgomery, Alabama to Jackson, Mississippi and chronicled what later became known as the Civil Rights Movement. The following year Davidson received a Guggenheim Fellowship, which allowed him to further document the African-American struggle for equal opportunity throughout the country.

A beautiful set of illustrations from Hungarian modernist, Lajos Kozma.

It's Not Milk Paintings by Ivan Alifan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 07, 2014
This series is an exploration of the modern gaze; of ambiguous figurative paintings that are revealed and transformed within the act of the individuals' views. These portraits are not an attempt to render physical characteristics but rather create a language of underlying sexual subtexts. Using ambiguity as a tool demands the viewer's exploration of their psyches and provokes self awareness...

Ono’u festival Tahiti: Part 1

Graffiti // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Arriving just as the sun was rising, we were greeted at the airport with live Tahitian music, fresh flowered leis and warm smiles. Despite the long overnight flight, everyone appeared enthusiastic about being on an island in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean and to be painting graffiti on it as well! After the standard meet and greet, summary of the week activities and paint distribution, everyone was able to soak in the island’s amenities (snorkeling, kayaking, sun bathing, you know, tropical island stuff!)

Studio Visit: Monica Canilao in Oakland, California

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 06, 2014
We have worked on numerous projects with Oakland, California-based fine artist Monica Canilao over the years, and one thing we always know when we check in with her is that she is going to be busy on numerous projects. From Detroit, to Miami, to New Orleans, and back to Northern California, Canilao's art and life have fused together in one creative hybrid. We went to Monica's studio to see what she was preparing for her next exhibition at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, opening June 7, 2014.
