Wise conflates so-called “guilty” commercial, gastronomical, and sexual pleasures—it bags, carb-rich breakfast foods, and fetish gear— creating imagined hybrids of frivolity and excess.

Today we're tripping out on the work of Montreal artist Pierre-Paul Pariseau. His mixed-media art and illustration reminds us of everything and nothing at the same time—familiar yet odd, comfortable yet surreal—Pariseau works with some of our favorite juxtapositions. Check out his new collection of pure pop imagery at his upcoming exhibit in Montreal at Salle de Defusion de Parc-Extension, opening July 2nd, 2014.

A few months back in our print edition, we handed over the tourist agency duties of Montreal to 123Klan, where the French-born, Montreal based "graffiti posse" founded by husband and wife Scien & Mrs Klor in 1992, told us the best places to eat, drink, see art, or get some culture. One of the places they mentioned? Station 16. And you know what? Now 123Klan is opening of paintings at Station 16 from May 8-14, 2014.

All 2014 long, Juxtapoz will be looking back at our roots, celebrating our 20th year with a mixture of history and the contemporary. For the March 2014 issue, we look at how Juxtapoz was born out of 1960's Psychedelic experimentation, from the art and groundbreaking imagery created by some of San Francisco's finest poster artists...

A recently opened gallery in Montreal (as recent as June) fell victim to a tactile art heist that is estimated to be worth up to $50,000 in losses. Sometime between November 2nd and November 4th, Station 16 was broken into where thieves took a number of painting, prints and computers. They believe the robbery to be planned as particular works were chosen off the wall by artists such as Labrona, Kevin Ledo, Scaner, Zek One, Whatisadamand Antoine Tavaglione. Fortunately, the works were insured and artists will be compensated, although they are still hoping for the recovery of the stolen art.
