Interview: LUSH Finally Answers our Questions

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 03, 2012
We became fast friends with Melbourne's graffiti provocateur LUSH last year when he came to San Francisco for an exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery, and turned the gallery into strip show.

The Dark Works of Ludwig Drahosch

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 01, 2012
Wow, what a powerful, dark, twisted series of paintings by self-taught German painter, Ludwig Drahosch. Depicting scenes of torture, sex, torture and sex, naked stretching, meditation, dreams... the list goes on... the paintings feel like a trip into the psyche of a truly deranged (in a good way, we promise), and talented artist.
