Juxtapoz // Friday, August 30, 2013
Zohar Lazar is an example of an artist by whom we have seen a ton of his work but couldn't never put a name to the output. Lazar has done cover for the New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Village Voice, and a ton of other commercial projects but also is an accomplished painter who has shown at Morgan Lehman last summer. 

The Wonderfully Surreal Universe of Aya Uekawa

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 30, 2013
We have always been huge fans of the works of Aya Uekawa, an artist we have featured in the magazine in the past because of her incredibly surreal but classic portrait styles and methods.

Body Illusions by Chooo-San

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 30, 2013
We have shown you the body art of Chooo-San before on the site, but we love some of the "back" work the artist has created. Although we are a little weirded out by the dude that lives in the girl's back, we appreciate some of the simpler works like you see here. 

Dennis Hopper, February 2007

Vault // Thursday, August 29, 2013
That portrait! We knew in late 2006 when we were organizing an interview with legendary artist, filmmaker, and actor Dennis Hopper that the portrait had to be perfect, a statement if you will, as this was the first issue that Juxtapoz was going to explore the spread photograph portrait series. Estevan Oriol, who has been an integral part of the Juxtapoz team for nearly 7 years, captured so much emotion and iconic power in Hopper in this shot, something that we could never expect we would capture with such a pivotal member of the art community...
