For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context. We have been lucky in our 20th year to celebrate special events in NYC and San Francisco, but we are even luckier to get a chance to celebrate with our July 2014 cover artist, Shepard Fairey, as he curates a major public art and exhibition, "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago during Lollapolooza, July 31—August 4, 2014.

Maybe you are still looking for some nice stocking stuffers, or just need some last minute holiday eyes. We assume there is a Kiehl's store near you, and if you go, maybe you can find yourself giving the gift of nice skincare wrapped with the graphic treatments of NYC-based artist, HAZE.

Today we are very pleased to show an inside look at our very special June 2013 issue, Beastie Boys: A Visual History + Tribute to MCA.

Haze’s classic signature style is a staple in the graffiti world. His work became widely recognized after creating art for early hip-hop groups such as Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, and EPMD, as well as designing logos for MTV and Tommy Boy Records. To celebrate Team USA and the thirtieth Olympiad, Haze created a large installation at the Nike Flagship store in New York. Filmed in the artist’s studio, the following video focuses on the artist’s inspiration for the show and the significance of symbols in his work.

In Haze's words about this billboard, “I was recently asked to create a memorial piece to honor MCA as part of the billboard project currently going on in LA. The piece just went up yesterday at Santa Monica and Vine, and is the third in a trilogy behind Kaves and Shepard. I was grateful to be given such a public forum to properly celebrate the life of my friend and collaborator Adam Yauch, and hope that these memorials will reverberate among the community that continues to mourn his passing.”

A nice package showed up in the main today: a limited edition pair of draught glasses from Heineken designed by the legendary Haze. We don't know about you, but we think it is good for people to have a nice pair of draught glasses in the home. For eggnog, orange juice, water, and the occasional Emergen-C concoction.

Rime just posted a small essay questioning the well-known term “old school”. With his own words he to attempts to make meaning of what is considered old school and asks the same question to a handful of writers coming from various generations. It appears that perspectives are affected by age, experience and location, but everyone definitely has an opinion.
