Revok is Jason Williams's second show this year following an exhibition in Los Angeles with the same title. It refers to the concept of identity that he has been exploring since 1990, when he adopted the name as his alias after becoming dissatisfied by the expectations and connotations of social status.

At some point, Revok went on a spray spree and cleaned up on all those old vintage flat cars like this beautiful GT.

We kick off the summer months with some bright lights and bold nights with June 2015 cover artist, Ryan McGinness. The NYC-based artist has his hands in a little bit of everything these days; installation, painting, Instagram-projects, murals, parties, museum shows... he is all over the place with imaginative and conceptual fine art. Carlo McCormick writes our cover story this month and finds meaning in McGinness's world of symbols

We have been excited to see the opening of REVOK's newest solo show, "Los Angeles," opened with Detroit's Library Street Collective in downtown Los Angeles. We attended a special event opening last night, and caught the great new direction in the longtime Los Angeles-based REVOK's new work.

Detroit-based contemporary art gallery, LIBRARY STREET COLLECTIVE, is pleased to announce the much-anticipated Los Angeles exhibition by REVOK. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, unveiling an entirely new body of work featuring over a dozen hand-painted wood assemblages of enthralling geometric forms in vibrant oil enamel and synthetic polymer. The work is a culmination of REVOK’S new ideas that spawned since moving back to Los Angeles in 2013 after a two-year creative hiatus in Detroit.

For the last 20 years, Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine has stood for the outsiders, to create a place and dialogue for artists who stood outside of the museum programming of the time but were creating substantial and amazing work that needed its own historical context. We have been lucky in our 20th year to celebrate special events in NYC and San Francisco, but we are even luckier to get a chance to celebrate with our July 2014 cover artist, Shepard Fairey, as he curates a major public art and exhibition, "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago during Lollapolooza, July 31—August 4, 2014.
