Oakland has notably been a strong magnet of sorts for graffiti writers around the country to come claim residency and attempt to make a name for themselves. Writers have recently been dedicating pieces to the city, even if it is not their native turf. Jeans and Kure certainly have done one of the better homage’s to the city of Oakland with this new mural.

We have shown you the work of Scott Greenwalt on the site before, but seeing that he is in our new book title, Juxtapoz New Contemporary, we wanted to reshine a light on the Oakland, Ca-based artist. "My paintings are really about capturing a moment," he says, "or a composite of several moments, wherein the subject undergoes a massive physical change."

At our good friend Alex Pardee and the Zerofriends space in Oakland, California, Ricky Watts just opened a new solo show, Destination Unknown. You might remember Mr Watts' work, as it was presented prominently on the stages of the Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in the summer of 2012 in San Francisco.

Sticks and Stones, Feral Bones is a showcase of new works from Charlotte Drury at Rock Paper Scissors in Oakland, encompassing the ideas of objects and objectivity. The works are an investigation of the ways in which we attach feelings, associations, and memories to objects; exploring our identities through our histories, visually and internally.

If you have been on our site over the past year, you know we love a good look at an artist's sketchbook or Moleskine. Why? It's all about process, and we love to see how an artist works from sketch to finished product. Today we look at Oakland, California based artist, Stephanie Kubo.

A nice little surprise in the mail yesterday: Brendan Monroe's new release, the Islands n.2 comic. Says Monroe, "This is the second visual story of my wandering dream based comics. The couple explores the deep sea floor and the gravitational relationship of moon and tide."

Oakland, California-based artist Grady Gordon has been championed on the Juxtapoz site for his unique method of creating monotype prints.

Thousands turned out this past weekend to catch the Endless Canvas graffiti warehouse opening, Special Delivery Bay Area 2012, in Berkeley, California. The show was a follow up to last year's show of the same name in Portland, Oregon, and despite minimal coverage by any local press outlets (minus the morning news sighting graffiti "tags" spread around the neighborhood, something the building owner already said they would pay to clean up), the show turned out to be one of the most exciting art events in the East Bay in recent years.
