In conjunction with our special print curation series with Art.com, today we look back at one of our selected artists, Mario Wagner, and his interview feature in our October 2011 issue. Wagner has always been one of our favorite artists who works in both personal and commercial work, combining collage, futurism, and an almost James Bond-spy like quality to each piece. The best part, these styles are now available as prints on Art.com.

John Waters is a little bit of everything in the creative world; filmmaker, writer, actor, visual artist, and even has a robust art collection. Based in San Francisco, Baltimore, and NYC, we sat down with Waters in the summer of 2010, just when his book Role Models was being released, and his last show at Rena Bransten Gallery in SF was opened.

Kehinde Wiley has always been one of our favorite painters, and in January 2010, we sent contributing editor Joey Garfield to the artist's NYC studio for a conversation about Wiley's ongoing and developing The World Stage series. At this point, Wiley was well on his way to becoming a world-famous painter, with major shows at museums and galleries, such as Roberts & Tilton and Deitch Projects, but we think we captured the artist at a perfect moment, ready for his World Stage...

In just a few short years, Devin Troy Strother has become one of the most talked about fine artists on both the art fair circuit and art gallery circles. This week, the artist opens a new solo show, Look At All My Shit, at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, and we look back on Devin's feature in the January 2011 issue... when the star was just rising...

That portrait! We knew in late 2006 when we were organizing an interview with legendary artist, filmmaker, and actor Dennis Hopper that the portrait had to be perfect, a statement if you will, as this was the first issue that Juxtapoz was going to explore the spread photograph portrait series. Estevan Oriol, who has been an integral part of the Juxtapoz team for nearly 7 years, captured so much emotion and iconic power in Hopper in this shot, something that we could never expect we would capture with such a pivotal member of the art community...

On September 12, 2013, Woodstock, New York-based mixed-media, installation, and fine artist David Ellis, will open a new exhibition, Hudson River Alley, at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC. Today, Juxtapoz looks back on David Ellis cover story in March 2011 by contributing editor, Joey Garfield, an interview done on the eve of Ellis' collaborative show with Swoon and Faile in Los Angeles. Skwerm was, and still is, at a creative peak.

If you grew up in the Northeast of the United States, and your parents were on the liberal kind, perhaps even of the hippie performance art/political theatre bent, then maybe you came across the wonderful world of Vermont's Bread & Puppet. This year, the group celebrates its 50th year, and we look back on our feature on Peter Schuman's influential, timeless live puppet and performance group, and their impact on performance art in America and the world.

One of the great independent filmmakers America has ever produced, with notable films such as Good Will Hunting, Milk, My Own Private Idaho, Elephant, and so many more, we were able to sit down with Gus Van Sant at his home in Portland, Oregon in March 2011, to discuss photography, filmmaking, and the intricacies of art.

Wayne White is a little bit of everything: illustrator, musician, art director, apparently a puppeteer... you know, all those things that make one an artist. You may know him for his art direction of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, or perhaps for his fast becoming signature text over landscape reproduction works that have been part of an amazing monograph edited by Todd Oldham.

Evan Roth might be having the most fun of anyone in art. Not only did he create an algorithm that allows for his website to come up first when you Google search "bad ass motherfucker," but he is the man behind innovative and inspiring works for both web and the physical world, including the Graffiti Research Lab and Free Art & Technology Lab (F.A.T. Lab), a web based, open source research and development lab. You know that Google Driverless car rampage? That was Roth and friends, and this is our interview with Roth in October 2010.
