'Lately, I've been working with digital Infrared photography... I'm attracted to the way infrared reveals veins and other features that are hidden in visible light. Skin and plants together remind me of our ultimate frailty and connectedness with the rest of nature.' Rhett Rebold

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
