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.

There is no question, we like the works of Pat Perry. We like that he shoots photos, paints, and documents his travels in his sketchbook. The staff has followed his work for the past year, and we were happy to interview Pat for the March 2013, catching the Michigan artist between travels... read on!

We are still buzzing from our week at Comic-Con, and one of the reasons is that we were able to witness the brand new sculpture that Robert Williams created with the help of Gentle Giant Studios. For the July 2012 issue, we paired Robert with old friend Kenny Scharf (who also had sculptures made with Gentle Giant for his newest solo at Paul Kasmin in NYC) to discuss not only their respective collabs with GGS, but also their historical perspectives on sculpture and how their sculptures pair up against art history.

Jen Stark will be opening a new body of work at Toronto's Cooper Cole Gallery, tonight, July 5, and we were looking back on our archives and wanted to share our feature with Stark from the March 2012 issue. Stark has always blown us away with her incredible paper works, and the name of her new show, Vortextural, seems to fit the work aptly. Enjoy the read.

One of our favorite artists of the past three years, Sweden-based Kilian Eng, just released his new book, Object 10, through Floating World Comics. Because we like any good time to check in with Eng and see what new works and projects he has going on, we look back on his interview in the print pages of Juxtapoz in June 2012, where we discuss science-fiction, other universes, and Ligne Claire.
