Here we are, at another New Year, ready for 12 great months ahead. This particular year for Juxtapoz is a little different, as we are celebrating 20 years of independent publishing throughout 2014, and what better than kick off the calendar year with a cover by Mel Kadel and an issue appreciating the subtle details of contemporary art. From New Wave Handmade Art, classic pop surrealism, and DIY public art, February 2014 properly sends us into our 20th year...

If you look up the word "amory" on Urban Dictionary, the number one definition states that "amory" is often used to describe Heaven, especially when used to describe the wonderful beacon of light. Though I doubt that oil painter Brett Amory is aware of this at all, as I stare at some of his ethereal and often eerie urban landscape paintings, the definition seems to fit the bill.

With the same anticipation as last year when Juxtapoz curated the art for the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in San Francisco, we are looking forward to the pack of kids who drive up from Arizona to see Metallica headline, wondering why it’s 49 degrees and foggy in August in California. For the 5th annual festival Juxtapoz is back at art curation duties, braving the schizophrenic weather with a wide assortment of live painting, murals, installations, and interactive art from some of our favorite international artists.
