Juxtapoz had the honor of flying halfway across the world with SABER this past month for Nuart in Stavanger, Norway, and we weren't sure what sort of installation piece he was gonig to create. Fresh off of SABER's skywriting project over Manhattan days earlier, the LA-based graffiti artist and activist remained in a political mood, and decided to not only create a classic SABER piece, but buff it at the opening in front of hundreds of people.

These photographs dating back to the 1910s show mass groups of U.S. military troops organized and photographed by Arthur Mole as well as a few other unidentified photographers. The troops were directed to lay down lace edging via megaphone to create the basic structure of the image.

Tonight, October 29, 2012, Bonhams is hosting the first ever Los Angeles Urban Art auction. The artwork is sourced from owners who go into a consignment agreement with Bonhams. Once the piece is auctioned off, Bonhams and the previous owner share the profit. Auctions have been a part of the overall art market for a long time and some feel they are just a necessary aspect of the business...

In conjunction with Shepard Fairey opening a new exhibition, Sound & Vision, at Stolenspace in London tonight (and officially, Saturday, October 20), we wanted to publish our recent feature on Shepard from our current November 2012 Politics & Art issue. In conversation with Ron English at the end of August, the interview is a candid talk from two artists who have helped shape a dialgoue of modern politics and art, and have helped foster contemporary street art.

With the upcoming election less than a month away, November 2012 feature artist Shepard Fairey (not to mention an artist set to open a new show in London this Friday, October 19) teamed up with InkCards and created a postcard you can mail for free to friends and family to just simply remind them to vote.

In his interview in the November 2012 Political Art issue of Juxtapoz, Ernesto Yerena Montejano introduced us to the work of two important political artists in the Bay Area. Ernesto tells us, "It is impossible to talk about contemporary political art without mentioning the talented and artistically prolific duo/couple by the name of Dignidad Rebelde."

Tsuyoshi Ozawa is known as an artist with insight into history and society, yet his method of expression is humorous and full of wit. The exhibition also includes Vegetable Weapon, a series of photographs of women holding guns made from vegetables. The projects have been carried out in different cities world wide, addressing the stupidity of war and violence.

'Tis the season. No, we don't mean holiday cheer, we mean the Political Season, a time of undecideds, debates, and campaign trails. Juxtapoz is in a similar mood, and we brought legendary fine artist and political satirist Ron English to our November 2012 issue to have him curate our special examination of Politics & Art in 2012.

As we announced on the site this past week, former Juxtapoz cover artist SABER was going to take to the skies (much like he did in protest to the public art moratorium in LA last year) to protest Mitt Romney's claim to eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected. And take to the skies SABER did, over NYC this weekend...
