Benny Gold, contributor and friend of Juxtapoz, featured in our March issue, has become a San Francisco staple for his artfully designed clothing. He is now trying his hand as a curator. Gold sent blank airplanes made of balsa wood to artists all over the world. Each artist painted, carved, burned, and otherwise made each airplane into singular works of art.

This past weekend we stopped by HVW8 Art for the private reception for “15 Years Of Gonz and Adidas,” a photo exhibition celebrating Mark Gonzales’ 15 years with the adidas Skateboarding family. As you may know, the man they lovingly call the "Gonz" has been a good friend of the Juxtapoz, Thrasher, and High Speed family for years, and we are so happy to see this show come to fruition.

This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery to check out Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale. When Rose moved to Los Angeles from NYC in 2001, the Beautiful Losers curator left a "big black box of 1990?s memories" in storage space in Glendale. Now he is having a gallery style fire sale.

A perfect way to start your Friday, June 01, what we consider to be the first official day of summer. Krooked Skateboards captured legendary man/artist/skateboarder/personality Mark Gonzales as he skated and played The Gonz in Paris. And, well-titled, it is called "Gonz Dancing."

If you're in Paris tonight (June 22) get over La Gaité Lyrique for the book launch of photographer Benjamin Deberdt book on The Gonz, titled "Le Cercle." The 48-page book captures one of Gonzales' ride on his nine circular-board contraption, a la the Circle Board.

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.
