In Memory of Shawn Whisenant (AKO)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, March 04, 2014
I always talk about Shawn Whisenant as the only true artist I know. The only one who hustles hard to remain an artist in San Francisco with no day job. The only one who answers to nobody and thrives, despite the everyday struggles of living on a shoestring. The only one who sleeps in the back rooms of galleries, makes new friends every day, turns a neighborhood walk into a photo essay, and makes beautiful things out of garbage. The epitome of a real artist, he made stunning work with stories literally sewn into every piece...

25 Years Ago Today, Jean-Michel Basquiat Died

Juxtapoz // Monday, August 12, 2013
On August 12, 1988, one of the most influential and famed artists to emerge from late 20th Century American art, especially downtown NYC art, combining Neo-expressionist, graffiti, music, and poetry,  died from a heroin overdose at the age of 27. Jean-Michel Basquiat, in his life and in his death, was both a symbol of the power of art and creativity, but also a symbol of the power of the art market. He continues to this day to be a favorite amongst our readers, and art collectors around the world.

Pasha 183 R.I.P.

Street Art // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
The 29-year old Russian street artist, Pasha 183, passed away Monday in Moscow. Widely known by many residents of Russia, his work was large in scale and often-contained strong political undertones. However, he once described himself as an “Anarchist,” not a political artist and held a strong distaste for advertising. In an interview posted on adme.ruhe said, “I wanted that work to carry the most important message ... that a person mustn’t sell himself.” “I made a chocolate bar that can’t be bought, using a giant panel of concrete.”
