Beyond the Cover: Takashi Murakami

In Japan, there is a right way to do everything. It applies to the way you eat ramen, how you cross the street, do business, and definitely how you bow. I’m told there is even a right way to paint. As my translator is explaining to me about an hour after landing in Tokyo, my initial breakdown of this concept was that there was an “efficient” way to do everything in Japan, but I was missing the point. There is a strict adherence to the right way here, to perfection; the guidelines are so complex that I planned, for the rest of my trip, to ask a thousand questions and presume the answers were going to be a bit confusing. But there is a correct way for everything here, and I’m suddenly self-conscious in front of a bowl of miso ramen.

Mens Fashion Ads from the 1970s

Fashion // Friday, June 12, 2015
The 1970s must have been a weird time. I wouldn't really know because I wasn't born in the '70s, but it seemed like a time where a lot of shit was being worked out. Musically, you had your Bowies to disco, disco to punk, and a whole lotta Pink Floyd in there, too. Which is fine, some of it good. Hey, I love Fleetwood Mac. And did we mention cocaine? There was a lot of that. Fashion-wise, again, lots of shit was getting worked out.

Paintings by Raqib Shaw

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 12, 2015
Born in Calcutta in 1974, Raqib Shaw now lives and works in London. A graduate of London’s Central Saint Martins College, he has developed a fantastic universe that straddles the monstrous and the erotic. His paintings lie somewhere between the categories of fine art and applied art. Shaw’s landscapes, bustling with chimeras, are line-drawn with an evident mastery of classical draftsmanship.
