After several years living in foggy San Francisco, I’d forgotten all about swamp ass. Then I went back to Richmond, Virginia, in the middle of June, and it all came back...

Let there be.... GWAR!!! We close out the calendar year with an in-depth feature on the visual history of rock's most disgusting, offensive, and inventive performance art group, Gwar. We take a look at the stage set-up's, poster art, zines, costumes, and music that inspired not only a cult-following, but a decades long commitment to keeping things bloody and grotesque.

“You’re built like a car, you’ve got a hubcap diamond star halo, you’re dirty sweet and you’re my girl.” Credit T. Rex for singing what they mean and Brian M. Viveros for painting what he likes. No women tied to railroad tracks, waiting to be rescued. Like Robert Williams, Viveros extols an idealized female image to portray beauty and strength, with no apologies.

There is a long tradition of documenting urban renewal through painting, film and photography, recording the dynamics, as well as a special moment in a particular time. While Times Square now seems to be consumer central, it was once notorious as a salacious, precarious side of the city, replete with strip clubs, pimps and drugs.

Tucked away on the ground floor of the Doubleday & Cartwright offices in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, an agency responsible for the groundbreaking and elegant sport-focused Victory Journal, and countless fine art-imbued commercial sports campaigns, Kimou “Grotesk” Meyer can be found in his studio making things. Lots of things....

In 2015, anonymity has become an anomaly—unless your name is Swampy. Once an ubiquitous subject in underground scenes after a New York Times interview and highly successful sold-out solo exhibition in San Francisco, Swampy decided suddenly that it was best to retreat into obscurity and hide out indefinitely while the fame train rode out. Like his identity, why he made the choice remains a mystery...

Juxtapoz is very excited to have back our longtime collaborator and NYC-based designer, artist, and creative director, Kimou "Grotesk" Meyer to create a special cover for the November 2015 issue. From creating the visual identity for sports teams and brands, to new watercolor works and wooden sculptural pieces, Grotesk has been extremely busy and we have caught him at a great time to talk about his new direction.

The Thing Quarterly’s first issue was printed on a window shade. As grad students, artists Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan knew they wanted to work together and, after a couple of false starts, settled on a Fluxus-inspired quarterly subscription service for art objects. What began as a year-long experiment is now eight years deep into the production of enviable editions and projects by the greats: David Shrigley, John Baldessari, Miranda July and Chris Johanson, to name a few.
