The West Coast portion of the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour concluded on Friday, September 21st with two successful events. The daytime event was held at Seattle skate shop, 35th North. Artists Dave Choe, Saber and N8 Van Dyke were there to meet fans, do some signing, and - of course - to paint. The final event was held in the evening at the Lo_Fi Performance Gallery where a good crowd gathered to watch the artists do their thing. The tour is scheduled to pick up again in October with two weeks of East Coast dates so 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.
