From Grand Central Station in New York City, I took the scenic Metro North line that snakes along the Hudson River to the small town of Beacon to visit my old friend, Jesse Hazelip. Originally from the West Coast, Jesse relocated several years ago, substituting big city stimulation for solitude, allowing him more time to focus on artwork and raising his son...

Following on the June 2014 issue with Mark Ryden, the July issue features another pillar of Juxtapoz's growth and international success over the past 20 years: Shepard Fairey. Amazingly enough, Shepard had only been on 1.5 covers in our two decades of publishing, and with a brand new body of work currently on display at the Halsey Institute in Charleston, South Carolina, works that were curated to sit alongside prints by Jasper Johns.

As you may already know, or maybe you were there, but Juxtapoz celebrated a special 20th birthday exhibition, "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine" at Jonathan LeVine Gallery this past week in NYC. We were excited to see old friends, new friends, artists, curators, editors, and anyone and everyone who has contributed or supported the magazine over the past two decades. We had two wild nights of openings and parties, and with the gracious support of the entire Jonathan LeVine Gallery staff, Converse, Liquitex, and all our friends, here is a look at the people who came out and celebrated.

In preparation for his first solo exhibition in New York entitled “”Love Lock: Cycle of Violence,” Jesse Hazelip boldy acquired three tattoos on his eyebrows and the back of his forearms and head. Each of these tattoos corresponds with his exhibition that will explore themes of injustices within our legal system and underlying corruption in the prison industrial complex. For the opening reception, Hazelip will be occupying a replicated site-specific jail cell made of plexiglass that will be built to the size of a solitary confinement unit (six by nine feet).

The two-person exhibition Butcher’s Hook featuring the work of Jesse Hazelip and Jon Todd opens tonight, June 8, 2013 at Yves Laroche in Montreal, Quebec. Todd will be showing new expressionistic-like portrait paintings, while Hazelip’s work is ballpoint pen drawings and mixed media. Each have a very different esthetic but both share a common ground in focusing on suppressed and marginalized members of society.

Earlier this week, we posted news of Judith Supine’s work popping up around the streets of Brooklyn, something we hadn’t seen in some time. Now, a number of Supine’s wheatpastes with the illustration work of Jesse Hazelip have found their way outside as well. The additional layering of cholo style tattoos on Supine’s characters makes for a completely different result, plenty more menacing! If you want to see them in person, we suggest walking through the streets of Williamsburg and look for the fluorescent green, not hard to miss.

In conjunction with the annual Venice Artwalk, painted on the exterior of the landmark Red Fort building built in 1922, artist Jesse Hazelip, created the following mural titled “Hearts of Oak.” The artist’s mural depicts an oversized pig being chauffeured on chariot-like vessel by a bull, used as a metaphor for the excess and gluttony of Wall Street, and the suffering working class.
