Donny Miller… what can we say about one of the most irreverant artists working today? In March 2012, we stopped by the Southern California artist's home to discuss his unique brand of conceptual, pop, performance, street, video, and political art. We just released two new Juxtapoz x Donny Miller tees in our webstore... go check those out now, and read this tale... 

Aryz, January 2013

Vault // Tuesday, March 05, 2013
Very few artists over the past five years have generated collective attention more than the young Spanish muralist and fine artist, Aryz. There’s no envy, nor pretention, but artists around the world speak of Aryz in a way that is rare in contemporary art; everyone just wants to see what he will do next. with the unassailable fact that Aryz has taken this movement, he and I agreed this interview should be comfortably labeled “contemporary muralism,” given it’s a novel perspective of comic book characteristics and detailed texture rarely seen on six stories of concrete.

It’s 1970 and a Seven-year old boy happens upon a weird Russian clown at a carnival. Weird Clown grants Boy the life of his dreams. Boy signs the deal in blood. Weird Clown erases the bargain from Boy’s mind. But Weird Clown makes good on it; Boy unwittingly lives the dream life, as agreed. Fast forward forty years, we find that the boy is an artist who has become renowned for creating elaborate installations and performances about a mysterious Russian clown. The subconscious mind is a powerful thing, isn’t it? For the boy has subliminally recalled the carnival meeting, the bargain, even the clown’s correct name: Dr. Pyotr Mastolf Ilyas. Or “Flotsam,” for short.

Journalists love the idea of making lists, and “Best Of” and “Man of the Year” picks. I’m not sure if we like to do this because it magnifies our positions as cultural arbiters, but as far as year end issues go, there will be plenty of publications and journalists making their play to define 2012. I personally don’t make lists, but I like to look at a calendar year and see who has contributed a body of work that can define, explain, and embody contemporary art at that given moment.
