Barbara Kruger, November 2010

Vault // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
News broke last week that NYC-based fashion staple, Supreme, was suing women's fashion line, Married to the Mob, for a copyright infringement based around the logo/graphic "Supreme Bitch." What many in the art world already understood is that Barbara Kruger, now a professor at UCLA and world renowned conceptual artist, was, and we say this gently, robbed of her style by Supreme with their now iconic logo. Kruger would never go on record saying she created the idea of a red box with Futura Bold Oblique look, but, well, she did. This is our cover story with Kruger from November 2010. 

Appreciating: Saul Bass and the Movies

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
On May 8, 1920, one of the most iconic and influential graphic designers, Saul Bass, was born. Creating posters and opening film sequences for classics like Pyscho, North By Northwest, Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder, West Side Story, Cape Fear, Goodfellas, Casino, and countless more, we give a nod to the legend who passed away in 1996. Here is a collection of his great posters, and a few of our favorite opening title sequences... enjoy. Even Google got into the mix with a fantastic ode to Mr Bass on their search page...

The women of “Unseen,” enciphered with street tags and abstractions, appear as graffiti specters, colorful visages of noir street action.

Watch: Paa Joe, Ghanaian Master Craftsman and Grandfather of the ‘fantasy coffin’

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
We didn't know that there was such a thing as "fantasy coffins," much less that there was a grandfather of the craft and that two US presidents have visited the Ghanaian master craftsman who holds the title! Paa Joe, has been hand-crafting coffins into anything from lions, airplanes, tanks, and even Coca-Cola bottles for almost 50 years. The intricate, month long intensive process produces a work of art that is then buried under the ground, never to be seen again. Since 2008 his business declined to the point that he had to move into a dusty roadside shack from his central Accra-based workshop. Paa is now the subject of a documentary, Paa Joe and the Lion....

4 murals by David de la Mano and Pablo S. Herrero

Street Art // Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Frequent collaborators David de la Mano and Pablo S. Herrero both create silhouetted imagery that compliments each other’s work naturally, making it hard to differentiate the two (Mano paints the figures while Herrero contributes the natural elements). The pair worked on four murals in Winter Haven, Florida, all with a distinctly different composition and concept. We are especially fond of the wall where the tree limbs are creating the face!
