Our old friend David Choe (that full issue with David we did is a bible of how to do art on your own terms) has been extremely busy over the past few months. You could start with his date night with Aubrey Plaza if you wanted to. But Dave is currently in Mexico City, painting murals and collaborating with a current Jux favorite, Dhear. Before then, David hosted an art workshop with the children of South Central, Los Angeles with aims to complete a 40 foot wall surrounding their playground at A Place Called Home (APCH).

Here is a glimpse into Francis Alÿs' video "Tornado" where the video artist travels a region in the Mexican countryside where tornados frequently occur and attempts to run into the eye of the storm. Alÿs is Belgian-born and currently lives and works in Mexico City.

Our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America just passed along information about a show we wished we were checking in person out next week, with one of our current favorites Smithe and Dhear opening a show, La Llegada de Apophs, at FIFTY24MX Gallery in Mexico City. Smithe, you may remember, was in the magazine a few months back, and Dhear has been on our radar with some outstanding street works that have popped up in recent months.

Leading Mexican contemporary artist, and a favorite here at Juxtapoz, Saner was recently in Cali, Colombia for a mural festival curated by Fundiberarte and Street Skills Cali. The festival was the city's first International Biennial Mural Exhibition, a week long event that brought in over 58 artists from around the world.

A little sneak attack from our December 2012 cover artist, Conor Harrington, as he painted a new mural in Mexico City without the fanfare of festival or exhibition. While on vacation, the London-based artist took a day to leave something in the DF. As our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America said, "We hope to see you soon back in Latin lands, Mr. Harrington."

As you can probably tell, we have a mini-obsession with Mexico City-based Smithe these days. A mixture of nostalgic, vintage illustrative style and a bit of the grotesque and absurd make for a beautiful combination, and Smithe is one of the best at the moment. Here is a look at some new music posters and graphic illustrations the artist has completed recently.

The always good Mexico City-based Smithe just sent our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America images of his process creating his latest work, The Last Letter. The work was created on the occasion of "Slow Death", exhibition of various artists based on the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.

This past Spring, Mexico City hosted All City Canvas, one of the premier urban art festivals that has occurred over the past 12 months. With leading artists such as El Mac, Escif, Roa, Vhils, Interesni Kazki, Saner, Sego and others, ACC took historical districts and buildings in Mexico City and transformed them into beautiful mural displays that resonated throughout the world. Today, we show you the premiere documentary, All City Canvas: The Short Film.

Next Monday, October 29th, we are set to premier the documentary filmed during the work made for one of 2012's best street art festivals, All City Canvas Mexico City. We were lucky enough to be in Mexico City for the majority of the festival, and were able to see importrant and historical districts of the city transformed by some of the best talents in contemporary muralism and street art. As part of our teasing of the video, we look back at the work of Escif, Interesni Kazki, and ROA. More in the coming days...
