Street art, most of the time, should be fun, and we love the interventions that Filthy Luker has come up with. Sea monster arms coming off a building, gigantic pencils scribbling on walls, and trees with eyes are a just a few of fun pieces he has come up with.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
