Jerome Abramovitch is a Montreal-based photographer. His creativity has been immortalized twice in the Guinness World Book of Records, and worldwide media such as 'Ripley's Believe It or Not!' have featured his work. The stark honesty of his photographs is a testament to who he is as an artist, the eccentric characters that surround him, and the intimate bonds they share.

John Baldessari "Storyboard (in 4 Parts)" @ Sprüth Magers, Berlin

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 28, 2013
Earlier this year in Singapore, Juxtapoz went to the opening of California conceptual artist John Baldessari with the gallery Michael Janssen, and of course, you remember that Mr Baldessari interviewed Tom Waits for our very special October 2013 cover story. We have had almost a full year of appreciating the artist, and we wish we could be in Berlin to see the tail end of his newest work at Sprüth Magers. But, if you need a little help with Baldessari, we just saw this Jason Schwartzman video helping to explain the artist to you... so you got Berlin art, and older Schwartzman video...

Banksy "Better Out Than In" Day 22-28 Recap

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 28, 2013
We've almost come to the end now, haven't we? Or at least, we think Banksy's "Better Out Than In" is supposed to finish this month? For the past week, Bansky has gone a bit... well, a little more mellow but with a bit more esoteric styling for his pieces. You got the cement block Sphinx, a sad stencil waiting for the club, a police notification, a Reaper, and a Op-Ed piece the NY Times didn't want to run. Today had a robot. So it goes...

Lou Reed, RIP

Music // Monday, October 28, 2013
Sadly, we feel like a major chapter in the world of art and music passed away yesterday with the death of legendary musician and member of Andy Warhol's inner circle, Lou Reed. Fronting the influential Velvet Underground (house band of Warhol's Factory) as well as a successful solo career, Reed was an icon of NYC, and of rock culture at large.
