On May 15, 2014, Juxtapoz and Jonathan LeVine Gallery will open "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," a group exhibition at both of LeVine's spaces at 557C West 23rd Street & 529 West 20th Street in Manhattan. The exhibition features a wide-range of cover artists and featured artists from over the past 20 years, and today we have a look at some of the covers from artists in the show. From Robert Williams to Grotesk, Mark Ryden to Swoon, here is a bit of a history lesson to catch up on, or reminisce over.

As we previously noted, Maya Hayuk was up to bat on the famed Houston & Bowery wall in Manhattan, just after Swoon completed a mural a few months back. Now Maya has completed the wall, and in the midst of the snow and cold in NYC, this is a bit of geometric shine for the neighborhood.

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.

Brooklyn-based artist, Maya Hayuk, has been enlisted as the next artist to paint the famed wall at Houston and Bowery in New York, and she has been making swift moves dousing it in color. The wall was previous decorated by the work of Swoon before the blizzard gave graffiti writers a nice opportunity to bomb it.

Spectrum Art Projects is a nonprofit organization that aims to bring public art to communities as a way to empower individuals and reshape communities. In the past, the project coordinated spaces for Andrew Schoultz and Jesse Harris to paint murals in Toronto, Canada, and now, Maya Hayuk has participated in creating a new mural entitled “PMA.” The mural is located in the courtyard at The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art at 1075 Queen Street West in Toronto.

The show closed and was open a week, but we captured a few looks of the space. Photos from the opening and more after the jump…

One of our favorite artists, Maya Hayuk, will be creating a new site-specific mural on the Lobby Wall of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for her first one-person US museum exhibition. "Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.
