Juxtapoz // Monday, July 07, 2014
Juxtapoz is proud to announce a very special August 2014 issue, featuring one of our all-time favorite musicians, creatives, and all around artistic personas, Madlib. For years, we have followed Madlib's eclectic career, from Quasimoto, Madvillain, Jaylib, Yesterday's New Quintet, the Beat Konducta series, and everything in between. One common thread has always been the unique and artistically-driven alter egos that Madlib has given to the world, and in this issue, we talk to the musician about his world of music and art.

Juxtapoz has been lucky enough to document many different art movements as they have grown over the last 20 years. A benefit that Juxtapoz provides readers is the chance to watch an artist create. Over the next month, we are following two-time Juxtapoz cover artist Jeremy Fish as he builds a moving-mural animation in anticipation of his next solo exhibition, Yesterdays and Tomorrows.

San Francisco artist Jeremy Fish has played a major role not only in Juxtapoz’s growth over the last two decades, but also in the growing movement of artists who grew up in skateboarding and who have formed successful careers in exhibiting art. Not only that, but we consider Fish a friend. He’s a two-time Juxtapoz cover artist, and we look forward to all his immersive paintings and explorations into narrative-based exhibitions.

Juxtapoz is proud to announce the newest addition to our ongoing book series with Gingko Press, "Juxtapoz Psychedelic." The book serves as both a story of our magazine's origins and current state, with Psychedelic Art once again emerging as a fascinating and endlessly experimental genre. From classic names such as Alex Grey and Keiichi Tanaami to a new generation of universe expanders in Killian Eng and cover artist Andy Gillmore, Juxtapoz Psychedelic is one for the visionaries.
Music // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
"When the music in me slows down, I pick up a pen and draw. When the ink begins to flow less easily, I trade the pen for an instrument and resume where I left off with a renewed sense of purpose. It’s a symbiotic relationship between art and music. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to tap into it and spend my days creating."

Earlier this year, we published a new book in our ongoing series, New Contemporary, that focuses on painters that both define and help evolve our coverage of painting through our 20 years of publishing. One of the artists that we were most proud to showcase was Scott Greenwalt, an Oakland, California based artist that combines both the natural and the metaphysical, creating a new brand of psychedelic arts with originality and amazing painting chops. We stopped by his studio to get a better glimpse at his work ethic, his plants, and his neighbors.
