Street Art // Wednesday, April 06, 2011
The buzz surrounding MOCA's Art In the Streets exhibit can't be any louder, as the response we have received over our April 2011 "Art In the Streets" issue done in conjunction with the show's curators has been off the charts. Maybe it was the Margaret Kilgallen cover? Whatever it is, its getting louder and louder, and just remember if you can't go, there is going to be the show's catalogue book. More after the jump . . .

Graffiti // Sunday, April 03, 2011
Longtime Juxtapoz contributors, Roger Gastman and Caleb Neelon, are set to release their massive (seriously, you can break someone's hand with that thing) vast, and important book, The History of American Graffiti, and PBS NewsHour just did a nice segment on the book with the two authors. Watch after the jump . . .

They just don't make them in Belgium anymore, except for HuskMitNavn's Mickey Duck sculpture. Although we don't think this tops the playground sculpture that Husk made in Denmark, this is a good collector's item. Made through Toykyo, the Danish artist made an edition of 12, and declares this will be the last of his Mickey Duck series. More looks after the jump . . .

The best part of Mike Leavitt's new original sculpture of famed Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami, is that it comes with removable glasses and articulating ponytail. That is detail that makes a one-off 10" sculpture something to get. Bigger views after the jump . . .

Now nothing says a little early 1970's Haight like a black light poster. Our February 2009 Juxtapoz cover artist, Mars-1, just released a black light print through San Francisco's Electric Works. The Blacklight Flocked Poster is hand-silkscreened with fluorescent UV inks and black velvet flocking. More information after the jump . . .

London-based graffiti, giffiti, and fine artist INSA just held a contest on his site where he was giving away some extremely rare INSA x NIKE official bootleg Swoosh tees, but for swap only. No money exchanged, just something you think is worthy for a bootlegged collaboration tee-shirt. Nothing says bootlegged like a good old-fashioned swap. More information after the jump . . .

Brendan Monroe, whom we featured in the magazine in our July 2010 issue, just wrote us about a new zine, Limbic Place, and a tee shirt collection he did with Sixpack France. The zine is constructed to be an inner journey through human instinct and primal emotions. See spreads and tee shirt collection after the jump . . .

It took us a second to actually understand that French graffiti and fine artist, Honet, designed a full micro-collection with French lifestyle brand, Lacoste. It has to be an artist's dream at some point to reimagine an iconic logo, and to get to re-interpret Lacoste's alligator was done quite well by Honet here. Check the collection after the jump . . .
