Printed in conjunction with the exhibition “Are your motives pure?” at Venus Over Manhattan, this 102-page catalog is an action packed adventure filled with Raymond Pettibon’s comic-style big wave surfing and beachside culture artwork. Not actually a surfer himself, Pettibon’s imagery does not attempt to represent a real surfing scene or want to be classified as ‘surfer art,” but rather as Venus Over Manhattan puts it, “Pettibon is elevating the surfer to the top of his repertory of American icons, tracing the figure’s arc through the terrifying and chaotic ocean of life in a manner perhaps more evocative of Edward Hopper than The Endless Summer.”

Supreme always has a great art collaboration each season, and we thought that the HR Giger deck and jacket that was announced last month was solid enough. This week, the NYC-based fashion stalwart announced a collection with the legendary artist Raymond Pettibon (cover of Juxtapoz n100 if you are counting at home.) The collection features a skate deck design, hoodie, jacket, and t-shirts in multiple colorways. Go get it starting on September 18.

"Seventh-Inning Stretch" curated by Carlo McCormick and Eric Firestone @ Eric Firestone Gallery, East HamptonJuxtapoz // Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Eric Firestone Gallery is pleased to announce the group exhibition Seventh-Inning Stretch, a selection of contemporary artworks exploring, employing and imploring our favorite national pastime, baseball. The exhibition does not delineate the sport's history nor ratify its tradition. Rather, McCormick explains that the show is "[a] modest sampling of some of the ways in which baseball has entered the lexicon of contemporary visual art; Seventh-Inning Stretch is hopefully a meditation on how and why we care. It is about the excitement we feel and the beauty of the boredom that borders on ennui."

Luckily, Raymond Pettibon, one of the truly great artists of our generation and former Jux cover, has an affinity for baseball as well, and has made a career out of creating brilliant works on the game.

In this excellent debut episode of their "The Art of Punk" series, MOCAtv dissects the art of the legendary Black Flag, from their iconic four bars symbols, to their coveted and now collectable gig flyers, singles, and band t-shirts.

We've been on a art in music kick lately due to our special Beastie Boys issue and this is a wonderful video on the group's commitment to art, featuring interviews with Raymond Pettibon as well as Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Henry Rollins.
