One of the most fascinating artists to come out of the hip-hop and graffiti movements in the 1980s, as well as the highlight of MOCA's 2011 Art In the Streets and our issue done in conjunction was the late Rammellzee, a true visual and musical pioneer. Starting tonight, March 8, the artist's The Letter Racers sculptures will be on view in NYC for the first time, at the Suzanne Geiss Company. Do the Armory, then do this.

After a summer of large crowds descending upon the MOCA's Geffen Contemporary to see what has become America's first major survey of graffiti and street art, today is the last day (Monday, August 8) to see "Art In the Streets" in downtown Los Angeles. Isn't Banksy paying for you today anyway?

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' Contributing Photo Editor, Estevan Oriol, is the subject of this collaborative short film with Spaghetto, filmed in conjunction with MOCA's Art In the Streets in collaboration with the Levi's Film Workshop. Mr. Oriol has got the acting chops down pretty well...

One of Los Angeles biggest names, Mister Cartoon, who brought a mix of graffiti, muralist, and tattoo work to MOCA's Art In the Streets, was captured by Off the Wall TV for this nice profile on the artist. We love the Ice Cream Truck, a big part of our 15th Anniversary Show in Los Angeles was based around that icon.

One of our founders and contributors, CR Stecyk III, created this video, Luxuria, in conjunction with MOCA, featuring a montage of film and photographic images taken from the artist's archive dating back to 1965. In perfect, the video is abstract, minimal, and full of images that are defining moments for everything that came after.
