Video: Wall Therapy

Street Art // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Last month, Juxtapoz had the fortunate opportunity to attended Wall therapy in Rochester, NY. We can’t help but smile when reminiscing over our experience there and all the wonderful people we met. Videographer and photographer, Rosanna Bach, was also in attendance documenting some of the artists and gathering their thoughts. Check out this new video she just released on Wall Therapy.

The Work of Heeseop Yoon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Heeseop Yoon begins her process by photographing jumped and cluttered workspaces, basements, and storage spaces "where everything is jumbled and time becomes ambiguous without the presence of people." From those photographs Yoon constructs and beings to draw freehand without erasing, correcting mistakes with double or multiple lines, which "reflect how my perception has changed over time."

Living Walls - Part 4

Street Art // Tuesday, August 20, 2013
As we reflect on the eventful week spent in Atlanta for the fourth edition of Living Walls, exhaustion kicks in. On our final two days we were able to see all the walls come to completion, which included the finishing of 3ttman, Nanook, Trek Mathews, and Roti’s walls. We attended a lecture series that took place on the 27th floor at the top of W Hotel that featured speakers and an artist panel all centered around urbanism and the use of public space. On the final day the main focus quickly shifted to getting the closing party ready that was to be held at the Goat Farm...

"Higher Planes" @ The Tate Gallery, Sydney

Street Art // Monday, August 19, 2013
This Wednesday, August 21st “Higher Planes” will open featuring new paintings and sculptures by Shida at The Tate Gallery in Sydney, Australia. “Arabesque figures coil amidst deciduous branches, as fluid, mountainous panoramas reflect Shida's painterly dynamism. Through Higher Planes, Shida continues to experiment with visual space and landscape painting. Contrasting his traditionally fluorescent palette with phthalo blues, Shida uses layered brushstrokes to create shuffling, otherworldly scenes.”

Living Walls 2013 - Part 3

Street Art // Friday, August 16, 2013
The sun now completely covered by grey clouds has given us some much desired cool down time on our third day here in Atlanta for the Living Walls Conference. After last nights block party in the Edgewood neighborhood where a large crowd congregated in front of Roti’s wall for a hazy late night of celebration in the streets, we wouldn’t be surprised if everyone had a more sluggish start than usual today. 

Nychos x Dxtr in Denmark

Street Art // Friday, August 16, 2013
Nychos who has been on a world spray tour as of recent (He apparently doesn’t sleep for how many walls he’s been cranking out) is now in Copenhagen, Denmark participating in the Galore Festival. With his crewmate, DXTR, the two painted an epic sliced and diced animal that has a cool mint blue colored skin.
