Juxtapoz // Friday, May 09, 2014
We had Adam Parker Smith in the print edition of Juxtapoz in 2013, and we can definitely attest to the absurd making its way into his work. Look at that portrait above. That was in the magazine. Creepy, huh? Adam is about to open his third solo show at Ever Gold Gallery in San Francisco, featuring work that "objectifies a crisis that occurs when one does not look away once the exercise ends."

The title of the show is borrowed from a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge entitled, Fire, Famine, and Slaughter.

Last Tuesday Juxtapoz and Altamont hosted a one night photo exhibition with Andrea Sonnenberg AKA Teen Witch at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco to celebrate her April, 2014 feature in Juxtapoz Magazine. Here are some snapshots from the night and some of her photographs if you didn't make it!
Street Art // Friday, April 11, 2014
NYCHOS, the Austrian super muralist that we have featured in our print edition and web edition many times over the years, is set to open a new solo show, "Street Anatomy," at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco on Friday, April 18th 2014. NYCHOS has been painting murals all over the city the past few weeks, and our friend James Pawlish caught him painting at the iconic Haight-Ashbury intersection. Probably a good idea for the foot traffic and the sleeping kids on the street to get a little NYCHOS in their brains...

Music // Monday, April 07, 2014
Franc-Blanc is the bi-coastal duo of Graham French and Danny White, who after years of performing under the radar as Dangraham, have finished their debut album, "Since it's been so long." The nine tracks span two years of writing from their studio in Balboa Park (SF), to a retreat on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, to Danny's new home in NYC, using all hardware, with the exception of a few "phone-synth-riffs" composed on the Subway.

Design // Saturday, April 05, 2014
Famed typography foundry House Industries and Heath Ceramics teamed up to create a series of wall mounted clocks. Boasting House Industries's bold typography and Heath's classic ceramic style, these are a great moment of two American brands coming together.
Graffiti // Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Depending on whose telling it, graffiti history will vary from person to person. What one writer saw in the streets another may have not. KQED Art School has put together rarely-seen photos of San Francisco Bay Area graffiti in the 1980s captured by photographer Jim Prigoff, co-author of the seminal book on early graffiti "Spraycan Art". Graffiti artist Neon describes from his point of view the styles, spots, and writers that had an early influence on the Bay Area graffiti scene.
