The most swiftly-evolving art-form, Urban Art is a creative chameleon that takes on many forms, from street murals to paste-ups, guerrilla-style installations to limited edition prints and canvasses; this is a movement that refuses to slow down. Its latest incarnation is the objet d’art; a limited edition cube that brings the inimitable typographical style of world renowned artist Ben Eine to life.

My work is broadly concerned with the agency of the present moment. By sampling various cultural and temporal trajectories, I’m exploring the notion of the now as a remix of past and future potentialities. This facilitates a renegotiation of perceptual truths resulting in an expression of things not quite truth, yet not quite fiction...

Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine has enjoyed the entirety of 2014 celebrating our 20th anniversary as a print publication. From a massive group show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC in the Spring, to a surfboard charity auction in San Diego, to publishing two new book titles, Psychedelic and Hyperreal, as well as countless special features in the magazine, we are proud to have paid homage to our past, present and future. Now, in partnership with our friends at SCOPE Miami Beach 2014, we present a series of galleries that epitomize the most dynamic and cutting-edge contemporary art in the world today. It is safe to say we are gratified to close out this 20th year with one of our most ambitious projects to date. Our installation dates will run the entirety of Scope Miami Beach 2014, December 2—7, 2014.

Oakland-based sculptor and illustrator Jeremy Mayer collects old typewriter parts and consctructs anatomically correct humans and animals. The pieces aren't welded or glued but intriciately put together only using the original metal components. "The first few pieces I created were very crude, but I loved the idea of making something from an archaic relic and from only one other object."

We loved Chris Labrooy's "Auto Aerobics" and were excited to see he's back with more digital art, this time exploring tales of auto elasticity! Chris has exhibited at the design museum in London and been featured in various publications, exploring CGI as a creative medium in itself which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural form. He is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.

This Friday, November 15th, Mark Moore Gallery will present Antiquity in the Faux, a sophomore solo exhibition of mixed-media assemblage works by artist Kris Kuksi. Oftentimes appearing as unorthodox altarpieces, Kuksi's sculptural wall works have been heralded for their superabundance of detail and narrative – as several theatrical microcosms may converge to produce one sensory fable. Teeming with struggle, conflict, faith, sexuality, and power, his works afford the viewer a ringside seat for allegorical spectacle as the spheres of fantasy and reality collide.
