Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco just opened the Moleskine Project #2, a group exhibition that features a spread page taken from the sketchbooks of more than 50 artists from around the world. It brings together a broader network of sketchbooks from renowned illustrators, concept artists, oil painters and more. Knowing how much our readers love Moleskine and process works, we HIGHLY recommend checking this out.

Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite a local artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. For us, we have been allowed to curate a project based around something we care about: murals and public art. And Converse has allowed us to invite an ecletic group of artists, from Lango, Dave Ellis, Troy Lovegates, Hitnes, 123Klan, and others to create brilliant works for the public to enjoy.

Sam Flores loves the number 12. He named his clothing line 12Grain, he really wanted his cover story with Juxtapoz to happen in December, the 12 month, and now he is opening his first solo show in SF in years on the perfect date: 12/12/12. We have a look at some of the paintings that will be in the show, Lion and the Lamb.

Over the weekend, Art Primo in San Francisco hosted an exhibition entitled “MQISM” featuring a variety of mixed media work from the prolific graffiti writer, MQ. Known for his two-letter throwups that have occupied the streets for 20 years, the artist has been branching out recently, most noticeably focusing on a variety of unique stickers and zines. Out of all the work in the show, the most memorable is the MQ tiled flooring; we want some for our kitchen!

We are very excited for the highly anticipated Sam Flores solo show, Lion and the Lamb, opening at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco on 12/12/12. Because Flores' last show opened in Egypt days before a major revolution erupted on the streets of Cairo in 2011, this is the first time many people have seen a solo from the Bay Area artist.

Fresh off a photo exhibition at the Hipstamatic offices here in San Francisco, Travis Jensen just released a new photography book, Wish You Were Here. Shooting works entirely with an iPhone 4 and Hipstamatic's John S. Lens and Blackeys Supergrain Film combo, Jensen captured the characters and scenery that makes San Francisco the unique place that it is.

I think this speaks for itself, it’s pretty much awesome. In a way it’s a false depiction of San Francisco. Things would be more accurate with a thick layer of fog hovering or making it’s way in overhead. Painted by Jor One.

From yoga instructor to artist, San Francisco-based Charmaine Olivia has continued to create amazing works of art that are playful, fun, and full of poetic passion. After seeing her work on instagram, I was immediately drawn to it. Charmaine’s paintings of beautiful women fused with otherworldly aspects ensure that each one is truly unique and memorable.

Not that long ago, San Francisco had an abundance of pits looking similar to this photograph. Graffiti once strived in these pits. Now large condos exist in their place, plaguing the visual landscape of the City by the Bay. We miss the pits.
