We just had a good week with Cleon; his shirt sold out in our webstore about as soon as we announced it. This probably will be the case with Cleon's new sculpture edition with Case Studyo. "Destroying the Weak" features two porcelain figures in battle, made in an edition of 20 with 4 APs, standing 9 inches tall packaged in a screen printed wooden box.

We have been working with a few Andy Warhol projects over the past month, and we were happy to see this go up on Paddle8's auction site today: The Andy Warhol Foundation is proud to present this auction which includes original artwork inspired by Warhol’s work created by ten renowned artists (all artists who have been in Juxtapoz over the past year or two as well). Proceeds will benefit NURTUREart, a non-profit institute dedicated to nurturing new contemporary art by providing exhibition opportunities and resources for emerging artists, curators and public school students.

These paintings are violent, rampant with murder, rape and brutality, all the things envisioned when thinking of a Gestapo past or some distant Orwellian vision. Upon looking at these paintings or anything that physically disturbs us, there is always a hesitancy to acknowledge the present. The “right now” is rarely considered, yet we all know violence and intimidation aren’t just the products of secret war missions and totalitarian aspirations...

In the entryway of SCOPE Miami Beach 2014, Juxtapoz invited Los Angeles-based fine artist Cleon Peterson to create sculptures based on his latest print release, Paint the Town. Working in conjunction with Pretty In Plastic, Peterson designed 8-foot tall, 3D reinterpretations of his menacing, dancing works. The following is an excerpt from the Juxtapoz October 2014 cover story with Peterson.

Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine has enjoyed the entirety of 2014 celebrating our 20th anniversary as a print publication. From a massive group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC in the Spring, to a surfboard charity auction in San Diego, to publishing two new book titles, Psychedelic and Hyperreal, as well as countless special features in the magazine, we are proud to have paid homage to our past, present and future. Now, in partnership with our friends at SCOPE Miami Beach 2014, we present a series of galleries that epitomize the most dynamic and cutting-edge contemporary art in the world today. It is safe to say we are gratified to close out this 20th year with one of our most ambitious projects to date. Our installation dates will run the entirety of Scope Miami Beach 2014, December 2—7, 2014.

Our good friend and October 2014 cover artist Cleon Peterson just completed album art for the band Single Mothers, and, well, the cover is epic. The band also sent us the look of their new video for the track "Half-Lit" this morning, which is a classy look into what energy looks like in black and white.

Cleon Peterson is not a painting. You are probably thinking to yourself, “No shit.” But you and I both know that the type of work Cleon Peterson produces brings up many questions about self and authorship. Let’s get that point out of the way immediately because we live in a time of extreme self-exposure and explanation, and I just want to make sure you’re with me...
