Dennis McGrath's "Heaven"

Photography // Thursday, September 17, 2015
Dennis McGrath’s debut book Heaven illustrates an incredible journey of a lost soul. Professional skateboarder Lennie Kirk started his career in the early ‘90s, at the ripe young age of 16. He was a wild child, fearless and invincible. Nothing seemed out of his reach. He was only 18 when he was run over by a truck. Board broken but otherwise unharmed, he walks away and ‘found God’. After being ‘saved’ his wild antics were no different, if anything crazier.


Graffiti // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
The graffiti community has once again lost another active participant and a wild spot hitter who certainly earned his name, Anemal. The Bay Area writer was known for large, in-your-face spots whether it was a freeway bridge ledge, billboard, rooftop or street spot. Our thoughts and condolences to friends, family and crew members. Anemal RIP.

The Creative Lives: Taylor McKimens (plus new show at The Hole NYC)

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
Taylor McKimens paints the mundane in a profound way. His scenes feature the characters and artifacts of his youth in Winterhaven, California. Finding inspiration in college Taylor slowly forged his own unique style, a messy, beautiful vision of everything around him. In this episode we follow Taylor as he takes us on a fishing expedition in Brooklyn, and installs a group show for the inaugural The Hole Gallery show in New York.

DALeast in Borås

Street Art // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
The artist spent a whole week working on 5 different sections of the 3 storey building, creating a dynamic image of a soaring eagle. The interesting architecture that dissects the image into pieces and puts it together from a certain viewing point is certainly adding to the effect of this striking mural. Created completely from 3D stripes that are ripping up and falling apart as he is roaming the skies, it is a classic example of DALeast's recognizable style. Painted with blue tones, the character itself symbolizes the vast blue sky in which the eagle dwells. The contrast between his majestic appearance and strong willpower to roam the skies is the encouraging message that the artist wanted to send out with this piece.

In the Magazine: Dan Gluibizzi

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
Voyeur's voyeur Dan Gluibizzi trolls the thousands of erotic sites that serve as archives for couples, strangers, nudists, swingers, amateurs, exhibitionists and other patrons of provocative recreation. The Portland-based artist, obsessed with the Tumblr format of imaging vaults, has a unique approach to the digital and analog world which allows him to investigate and recontextualize a swath of NSFW material and revel in the new exhibitionism enabled by the information age. His paintings present a fetishized framework of playful and experimental sexuality, coupled with his own appreciation for art history and background in printmaking.

The World Goes Pop @ Tate Modern

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
Whaaam! Pop! Kapow! This is pop art, but not as you know it. Tate Modern is ready to tell a global story of pop art, breaking new ground along the way, and revealing a different side to the artistic and cultural phenomenon. From Latin America to Asia, and from Europe to the Middle East, this explosive exhibition connects the dots between art produced around the world during the 1960s and 1970s, showing how different cultures and countries responded to the movement.

Polish dynamic art duo Sainer and Bezt, better known as Etam Cru, recently made a trip to Banja Luka in Bosnia and Herzegovina to take part at the Flaster festival. The artists spent couple of days on their cherry pickers working on this impressive mural beautifying a facade of a 9 storey building.
