Converse x Juxtapoz: Wall To Wall Brooklyn featuring Jersey Joe

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 21, 2013
Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the mural created in Brooklyn, our second there, by former Juxtapoz feature artist Jersey Joe. The piece was featured on the back of our January 2013 issue.

Illustrations by Steven Ketchum

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 14, 2013
We really like the work of Brooklyn-based artist Steven Ketchum. According to Steven, his artwork is a reflection of confusion seen in the world and the figures he draws don't understand themselves or eachother.

The Works of Langdon Graves

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 24, 2012
An artist we enjoyed learning about this year was Langdon Graves. Originally from Virginia, Graves is a Brooklyn based artist, who creates beautiful, ethereal illustration work. Her drawings have a minimal stillness about them, and her simple arrangements are approached in a near new surrealist manner.

Gingerbread Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 20, 2012
We feel like we haven't even touched on fun Christmas art this year, but thank you to chef Renee Baumann for creating an edible Brooklyn city block, made entirely of gingerbread. Sugar glass windows, brownstones you can eat, this is definitely a perfect piece of holiday art.

Converse x Juxtapoz: Wall To Wall San Francisco, Brooklyn, & Richmond

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite a local artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. For us, we have been allowed to curate a project based around something we care about: murals and public art. And Converse has allowed us to invite an ecletic group of artists, from Lango, Dave Ellis, Troy Lovegates, Hitnes, 123Klan, and others to create brilliant works for the public to enjoy.

Anyone feeling the holiday gift-buying panic yet? We sort of suffered through some high-tension shopping this past weekend, but if we were in Brooklyn, perhaps we would have found some peace. Steve Powers, 2x Juxtapoz cover artist, just opened a new storefront, ESPO's Creative Outlet. Residing at 4th Ave and Bergen St, in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn, the shop has a range of in-store only prints, along with ESPO-related books, catalogs, ephemera and a raincoat or two.
