One week into the tour and counting, the artists dig into their reserves to pull off another successful day of painting. Day seven of the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour took Saber, Dave Choe and Retna to the grand opening of the Upper Playground Berkeley store on Telegraph Ave. The guys signed the usual books and shirts but switched things up a bit for several willing ladies who wanted Saber to sign their stomachs. We wonder how long that will take to wash off? Fans came out for the evening event held at the Radio bar in Oakland. After this, it's on to San Jose for the tour's last Bay Area stop Sunday, September 16th for a day event at Workmens on Eastridge Loop.
Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.
