If you remember, Banksy just won the 2014 Webby for Person of the Year, basically because for one month in NYC, he took over the Internet with his brand of social media and street art in "Better Out Than In". We even got flak for calling it an Internet project. Well, we like to thank the Webby Awards for confirming our editorial. Now, Banksy just released a trailer for "Better Out Than In—The Movie," which could just be his acceptance video for the Webby Award, or an upcoming movie. Anyway, its on the Internet.

Former Juxtapoz cover artist, Spanish-based ARYZ, just completed another huge mural in Lagos, Portugal. The artist was invited by ARTURb to do the mural, which features a skeleton with some camera skills. After a few international trips for ARYZ this year, including India and Austria, we love seeing a return to a multi-storied mural to kick of the European mural summer program. (That isn't a real thing, but it should be.)

To accept his 2014 Webby for Person of the Year, Banksy made this video about his Residency in New York City. Whether you loved it, hated it, felt inspired by it reminded us of why street art, graffiti, public art, whatever it is you want to call it, in whatever form you find it, do it, see it, is an important historical identifier of who we are as humans.

Daniel Muñoz, known to many as "SAN", has always had a talent for fine art and illustration, creating imaginary worlds that have made him one of the most fascinating and talented artists to emerge from Spain in recent years. He is also a very talented muralist and street artist. Recently, the Madrid-based artist completed a piece, roughly translated to "11 Figures Working In a Corner" on the small abandoned building in the town of Blanca, Murcia, Spain.

Jasper Wong has been throwing massive street art gatherings for the last five years, starting in Hong Kong, moving to Hawaii, and this year, for the first time, in Taiwan. The festival is called POW! WOW! because that's the reaction Jasper wants to see as locals witness international artists' murals unfold on their city streets. Many Juxtapoz-featured artists will be coloring and crushing the walls of Taipei...
