Barcelona collective Penique Productions are known for filling large spaces, both gallery and public, with colored plastic. As if wrapping leftovers with a plastic wrap, Penique covers an entire space in a transformative color, changing the way the viewer sees the space, and simplifying the viewing experience and space to a simple color construction.

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
