Leif Podhajsky for Kelis' "Food" LP + Singles

Music // Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Leif Podhajsky has been one of our favorite art directors and artists for music album covers in recent years, having worked with Foals, Lykke Li, Tame Impala, Grimes, Mount Kimble, and Youth Lagoon amongst others. Leif does the new wave psychedelia very well, combining photography and collage in a way that seems both futuristic and vintage. Leif just did the packaging and cover design for Kelis' new LP, "Food," and the accompanying singles.

Craig Green takes art and fashion to very interesting levels, and his Spring Summer 2014 line pushes psychedelia, costume, superheroes, Zorro, and cinema into a mix of futuristic wardrobes and high fashion... the presentation is flawless!

Collage Works from Javier Pinon

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
'My work has had a tendency to be a bit autobiographical. Not literally, but under the surface. My reality or state of mind at the time that the collages are made is reflected in the psychology of the work and the stories it tells. For example, the Minotaur was at one time an important personal symbol. I won’t get into the details, but it was a very difficult period of my life and I felt a strong connection and sympathy for this very tragic, and in my mind misunderstood, creature...'

Psychedelic 1960s: The Music from the Posters

Music // Wednesday, February 26, 2014
We have shown you the posters, we have introduced (or re-introduced) you to the artists and photographers behind the scenes, but today we want to show you some of the music we have been listening to in the office as we put the March 2014 issue together. From Jefferson Airplane to Sly and the Family Stone, Hendrix to Mayall, Quicksilver Messenger Service to Janis Joplin, it was a fun few months of getting back into a great era of experimentation, music, art, and culture.

Psychedelic 1960s: The Poster Art of Victor Moscoso

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 19, 2014
Today, we complete our portfolio showcases on the "Big 5" the artists most synonymous with San Francisco's psychedelic poster art scene of the 1960s. Victor Moscoso is a legend of course, with his Chambers Brothers poster being the cover of the March 2014 issue of Juxtapoz, but more so, his work to us is the signature look of psychedelic poster art. From found imagery, to nudes, kaliedescope eyes, and stunning summer color blends, this is what psychedelia looks to us.
