About Upper Playground Based in San Francisco, Upper Playground (http://www.upperplayground.com) was founded in 1998 to fill the fashion void between culture-based brands of clothing. At the time, clothing brands targeted toward one particular cultural group, such as skaters, surfers, or musicians, had no overlapping characteristics. Upper Playground was founded with the belief that numerous social influences, such as art, music, skateboarding, basketball, and street life, could be combined in one brand of clothing that celebrates contemporary urban lifestyle without excluding anyone. Today, Upper Playground is recognized as a catalyst for the fusion of fashion with art from some of the finest local and international artists and graphic designers. About Juxtapoz Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine focuses on underground artists and cutting-edge art movements. It was designed as a magazine for the new art movement with a goal to bridge the gap between art and culture. Juxtapoz showcases today's most interesting and influential artists.
