Nuart 2012: SABER Interview and Performance Video

Graffiti // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Juxtapoz had the honor of flying halfway across the world with SABER this past month for Nuart in Stavanger, Norway, and we weren't sure what sort of installation piece he was gonig to create. Fresh off of SABER's skywriting project over Manhattan days earlier, the LA-based graffiti artist and activist remained in a political mood, and decided to not only create a classic SABER piece, but buff it at the opening in front of hundreds of people.

Pardee's Picks: The Works of John Gourley

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Alaska is stereotypically known more for its moose, its weather, and its Vice Presidential candidates than for its music or its art. But if you take one look at John Gourley's art, or hear one song from John Gourley's incredible band Portugal. The Man, you'll most likely want to migrate up north into the ice in hopes of absorbing some of the unbridled inspiration that John has that makes his work so original, unique, and (much like the Alaskan weather), refreshing.

Suspended Birdcages in Sydney, Australia

What was once a temporary installation in Sydney's Angel Place from 2009, artist Michael Thomas Hill created Forgotten Songs, an installation of 110 empty birdcages suspended above the ground that also contained an audio element that gave the sound of 50 or so birds that used to exist in the area prior to industrialization. 

Secret Lives of Others: The Works of Emiliano Ponzi

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Tell us you have never done a little secret spying on your neighbors, even by accident, and we call you a liar. It's just the nature of humans, and illustrator Emiliano Ponzi has taken the concept of voyeurism (or peeping Tom) and created this fantastic appearing installation, The Sunrise Hotel,  in Rome at Wunderkammern Gallery.

Pardee's Picks: The Work of Jon Way$hack

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 29, 2012
Much like all of the artists that are featured in the pages of Juxtapoz, it's really hard limiting the number of featured pieces that we showcase. Especially in Jon Way&hak's case, who was featured in our special Halloween issue. His art contains so many details that even showing 30 of his pieces wouldn't fully perform the justice that needs to be served. So therefore, here is a bonus selection of some more of Jon Way$hak's astounding artwork.
