Nunca recently completed a new mural for the Urban Forms Festival in Lódz, Poland. "Like I have been doing for many years now," Nunca says, "it's another new mural about my view of how we are all immersed in a global scenario that gives anybody the possibility to interfere in the different aspects of culture in our daily life."

The Montana Gallery Barcelona presents "Journey to the Present", an exhibition of Enric Sant, which will be open through 6 December of this year. "Journey into the present" is the first solo exhibition by Sant (Barcelona, â€‹â€‹1985), in which the artist presents a unique vision of the world where organic shapes and bodies are the stars of a series of oil paintings and fast ink drawings. The works speak of the desires and fears of the people and their relationship with human-designed environment.

Banksy has dropped a few new pieces over the past weeks, and we really like this "Girl with a Pierced Eardrum" work that was put up in Bristol, England found near the city's harbor. The piece is obviously an ode and update to the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, which if you remember was the subject of a Scarlett Johansson-starring movie. We just wanted Banksy and Scarlett in the same post, and we achieved our goal.

Juxtapoz has always stood by noble causes, and we especially support great causes for which art is being utilized to encourage change. Over the years we have published special political-themed issues and are proud to have created numerous art auctions for charities, the most recent being for a clean water initiative in the Philippines. Today, we are excited to see the announcement by WAT-AAH!, the first functional bottled water for kids and teens, for the continuation of its groundbreaking art initiative, WAT-AAH!’s Taking Back the Streets (TBTS). The initiative, which encourages kids to drink more water through street art, will return to New York City October 14th-15th at ArtBeam Gallery in Chelsea.â€¨
