The Copenhagen scene continues to be an epicenter in Europe, and our friends at V1 Gallery have been doing their part with great curation and projects. The V1 team has worked with the US Embassy in Copenhagen to have former Juxtapoz cover artist, Steve "ESPO" Powers, create a large-scale, 55-meter long public mural in front of the embassy to be completed on November 6, 2013. While Powers is in Denmark, he will be part of a talk and screening of his film, A Love Letter For You.

We told you that we were going to keep the Banksy month-long "Better Out Than In" project to recaps, but the video he released today was just way too good to pass up. Titled "Rebel Rocket Attack," it definitely proves you must be careful with who you fight with...

The exceptionally talented and conceptual muralist, Escif, appropriately titled this mural of equestrian horse jumping Austerity. “Show jumping is a discipline which is a timed event judged on the ability of the horse and rider to jump over a series of obstacles. This discipline is one of the most popular sports and equestrian riders most used today, and is the most modern specialty equestrian sport that has come to turn the classic sport of riding in a spectator sport” says Escif relating to this particular piece.

For those of you who want a more amiable and everyday view into the life our current President of the United States, there is a flickr page that seems to be just the right spot. Obama has plenty of moments that are photogenic and lovable, many of which we have seen before, but the White House's Flickr page is a place where this is perfectly collected and arranged to catalogue snapshots of his personal life as well as his moments at work that are not so explicitly pictured in most media outlets.

Andres Serrano's Piss Christ (1987), which has always been the subject of outrage and controversy for those of the right wing, has now been brought into a new dialogue with an artwork by none other than conservative radio-host (and resident moron) Glenn Beck in his amateurish and kitsch Obama in Pee Pee which is very much just that. The immature title fits quite well, because the ironic gesture is done so on a very low budget.

Today is Election Day, and we look back on Jason Heuser's awesome sereies of reimaging past Commander-in-Chiefs as new and improved superheroes. So, you get JFK as a riding a unicorn on the moom, Lincoln riding a bear with a machine gun and copy of the Gettysburg Address. We want to know what Obama gets if he gets a second term?

As you may know by now, or even purchased and received in the mail, Juxtapoz celebrated the Election season by releasing our November 2012 Art & Politics Issue. Featured in said issue was TrustoCorp, who not only had an exhibition at The Outsiders this Fall, but also just created art for the Rock The Vote campaign (aka, getting young people to get out and vote this November).
