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 our October issue with one of the world's emerging contemporary artists, Los Angeles-based Cleon Peterson. With works that are both violent, vengeful, and bloody, there is poetry and motion in the works of Cleon Peterson, and for the the October 2014 issue, he created a special composition that conjures up his ballet of conflict.
