French artist Miguel Chevalier took over the former Sacré Coeur church in Casablanca, Morocco with an interactive light display spread out across the floor in a piece title "Magic Carpets." The result is a transforming pool of light and color, and psychedelic and mesmerizing biology science experiment. Watch the video.

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.

What you are looking at is wearable, psychedelic, bugged out fashion. 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!

'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...'

With our Juxtapoz Psychedelic book and psychedelic-themed March 2014 issue out over the past month, we have been enjoying our research and look into more new psych influenced artists from around the globe. Belgium's Ellen van Engelen is the newest to hit our radar, who creates work in the vein of late 1960's Beach Boys' album cover art.

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.

"FAR OUT!" will include Erik Parker, Peter Saul, and Jamian Juliano-Villani, all who paint with a touch of psychedelic influence, pop-culture references, and classic inspirations. And the work gets bright!

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.
