Graffiti // Tuesday, June 09, 2015
Last month, the iconic graffiti writer Lee Quinones, whose work first drew attention when it adorned the side of New York subway cars in the ‘70s, exhibited a number of his drawings from those early days at a pop-up gallery curated by Nicole Klagsbrun. In case you missed the exhibition, we put together a few of our favorites here for you to check out.

For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context. We have been lucky in our 20th year to celebrate special events in NYC and San Francisco, but we are even luckier to get a chance to celebrate with our July 2014 cover artist, Shepard Fairey, as he curates a major public art and exhibition, "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago during Lollapolooza, July 31—August 4, 2014.

You shouldn't use the term King lightly, but with this line-up of Futura 2000, Lee Quinones, and Fab 5 Freddy, 3 Kings is the perfect moniker. Curated by Patti Astor of the Fun Gallery and coming to Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, this exhibition brings three ambassadors of NYC graffiti to Southern California.
Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 02, 2011
April 2011 marks a special issue for Juxtapoz Magazine, as we were asked by the MOCA to create a companion issue to the first major instituitional retrospective of street art, Art In the Streets. As we documented street art to a wider-audience of fine art, tattoo, pop-surreal, and illustrative art enthusiasts over our 17 years, we wanted to create an extended dialog and history with graffiti and street art pioneers.
