Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 02, 2015
Juxtapoz is very excited this month to have one of our favorite painters, the great Seattle-based artist Mary Iverson on the cover of August 2015. Although perhaps not overtly political, the August 2015 issue is our look at some of the best artists in the world's approach to environmental issues. From climate change to extinction, using Earth materials to challenging conventional means of production, we gathered an eclectic group of artists that are inspiring and progressive.

The May 2015 cover story feels like a long time coming. A half-decade even, but it was worth it. Chris Ware is not only a cult-followed comic book artist who has transformed the genre with some of the most intricate, progressive storytelling styles we have ever seen. It started with the Acme Novelty Library series, to the graphic novels Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth and recently grew to the incredible Building Stories graphic novel. This is what we want to document this month; a true American storyteller.

There are very few figures of the last 25 years that can cross the barriers of pop, underground, and progressive art quite like Bjork. She has transformed the way we look at music, video art, stage performances, and overall artistic persona unlike any artist we can think of. In conjunction with the opening of her special retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, the April 2015 cover is a celebration of the past, present, and future of Bjork.
