While in Portland for the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour, Dave Choe and Saber stopped by the offices of Wieden + Kennedy for an
impromptu painting session. Dave Choe has worked with the reputable ad agency in the past and they were kind enough to pick up a drum kit for
him to use on his visit. The artists are making their way to Seattle for the last stop on the West Coast portion of the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour. After that, they can look forward to a few weeks off before the East Coast leg of the tour, which starts in mid-October. Check back soon for dates and locations!

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
