Over this past weekend Batle's life was tragically cut short. He had LA on lock with scribes, stickers, tags, and pieces and had countless streaks and pieces on freights as well. This is a huge loss to the LA graffiti scene and he will be missed.

RIP The Great H.R. Giger (1940-2014)

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 13, 2014
We were sad to hear this morning that renowned Swiss artist H.R. Giger has passed away. Most well known for designing the monster and sets for Ridley Scott's "Alien," Giger influenced a generation of artists and filmmakers. Giger's work melded and combined mechanical, machine and human elements into nightmarish creatures, creating surrealist images in a style he described as "biomechanical" or "biomechanoids." 

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...

Lou Reed, RIP

Music // Monday, October 28, 2013
Sadly, we feel like a major chapter in the world of art and music passed away yesterday with the death of legendary musician and member of Andy Warhol's inner circle, Lou Reed. Fronting the influential Velvet Underground (house band of Warhol's Factory) as well as a successful solo career, Reed was an icon of NYC, and of rock culture at large.
