In the infancy of hip-hop, Brooklyn-born photographer Jamel Shabazz documented the pioneers of music and style who would launch an enduring worldwide phenomenon. In Jamel Shabazz Street Photographer Charlie Ahearn (director of the seminal graffiti movie Wild Style) pays tribute to both Shabazz and those who defined hip-hop before it had definition. We sat down with Shabazz ahead of the DVD release to talk about his motives for documenting the world around him and how they have evolved throughout his lifetime.

The Work of Elisa Malo http://www.juxtapoz.com/illustration/the-work-of-elisa-malo http://www.juxtapoz.com/illustration/the-work-of-elisa-malo The Work of Elisa Malo
In the depths of a person’s stare, if you look very closely, it’s said you’ll manage to see into their soul. For Elisa Malo, Mexico City based illustrator, the souls she finds are the kind you’d wish you’d never dwelled into. Her focus is in the lines of an obsessive compulsive; each drawing, painting or sketch seems to grasp certain attributes or faults of a person’s being in her dramatic naive style.

Smithe in Casablanca http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/smithe-in-casablanca http://www.juxtapoz.com/street-art/smithe-in-casablanca Smithe in Casablanca
A couple of weeks ago in Casablanca, Morocco , Mexican artist Smithe presented a mural amongst several other artists from Mexico, Spain and Morocco for the Sbagha Bagha street art show during Boulevard Music Festival. For over ten days the artists adorned the walls of this white city in the third edition of this music and art festival. Exploding out of its wall Smithe’s cyborg like characters, disintegrate and attack, a sci-fi moment suspended by the breeze of the atlantic ocean.

Illustrations by Penelope Gazin http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/illustrations-by-penelope-gazin http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/illustrations-by-penelope-gazin Illustrations by Penelope Gazin
Penelope Gazin has taken sensuality into a place cornered by guts, fluids and sex, the best kind of all of these. She has a background in character animation but has, for a while now, been fully focused in freelance illustration as well as creating her own merchandise. There is something incredibly enchanting and creepy about her characters; attractive and repulsive and at times with elegant feminist satire.

Here is additional proof that hallucinogenic drugs can be highly beneficial to ones creativity and artistic practice.  It would be safe to say Baer has been to the deep end and back many times before.

Tucked away on the ground floor of the Doubleday & Cartwright offices in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, an agency responsible for the groundbreaking and elegant sport-focused Victory Journal, and countless fine art-imbued commercial sports campaigns, Kimou “Grotesk” Meyer can be found in his studio making things. Lots of things....
