In the entryway of SCOPE Miami Beach 2014, Juxtapoz invited Los Angeles-based fine artist Cleon Peterson to create sculptures based on his latest print release, Paint the Town. Working in conjunction with Pretty In Plastic, Peterson designed 8-foot tall, 3D reinterpretations of his menacing, dancing works. The following is an excerpt from the Juxtapoz October 2014 cover story with Peterson.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.

We launched Richard Colman's "Orbs" yesterday in Austin as part of Juxtapoz Projects during 2014 SXSW with Converse. We have been huge fans of Richard's art, a unique style that blends recognizable characters amidst abstract geometric patterns on both canvases and installations so we were very excited to collaborate with him on bringing his character to a new medium: weather balloons! Unfortunately yesterday a thief in the night snuck over and cut the Orbs loose! So keep an eye on the sky for a falling Richard Colman Orb!
