We recently got introduced to the works of NYC-based Sam Meyerson, who has done work with Steve Powers' ICY Signs crew and had paintings on exhibit at Joshua Liner Gallery a few months back. Today we take a look at a bunch of different styles and works Meyerson has completed in recent years, including murals, sign paintings, paintings, sketches, and other various projects... check it.

If you have read Juxtapoz in print or online over the past few years, you know we have great affection with sign painitng. Seeing that we have headquarters in San Francisco and a Brooklyn outpost, we have been surrounded by great artists bringing back the tradition of sign painting, with none more strong than Steve "ESPO" Powers and the ICY Signs Shop in Brooklyn. This Thursday, Ocober 24, Joshua Liner Gallery will open an exhibition of works from the ICY Signs crew, entitled "Perfection is Standard, Mistakes Cost Extra."

One thing you notice walking the streets of Johannesburg is everything is hand painted, with vinyl signs having little presence. Espo started another mural that is twice as big as the previous “Stay Up” mural and while they worked away, we walked around. Local artist Faith 47 happened to be putting up work around the corner from where were staying, so we briefly chatted with her.

Often when traveling to unknown lands, in this case Johannesburg, one can create certain expectations in their head and discover the exact opposite. After a few days running around, are initial skepticism of Joburg has been revoked and anything but negative. Aside from countless memorable adventures from our hospitable hosts and curators of the event, /ANDPEOPLE, we have witnessed two massive murals by ESPO and ROA come to completion.
