A few weeks ago, Juxtapoz visited the Northwest, settling in Seattle to explore the various companies and artists that live in probably the most beautiful city a Sound could offer. One of the places we have been intrigued by over the years is Ebbets Field Flannels, a company born out of a love of sports, but to us, a company and brand that signifies great traditions in both artisty and craftsmanship. Recreating exact silhouettes of classic and forgotten baseball teams, as well as apparel of other vintage baseball, football, and hockey teams. We stopped into their Seattle shop to get a glimpse of the team behind Ebbets...

A great show we checked out earlier this week on a very quick trip up to Seattle... Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion at the Seattle Art Museum. From the curator: "The tremendous innovation of Japanese fashion designers who have revolutionized the way we think of fashion today is the focus of this special exhibition, the first of its kind presented at SAM..."

Juxtapoz friend and fantastic public artist (as well as fine artist) Mary Iverson has work up on the Marion Street pedestrian overpass near Coleman dock in Seattle. The 24-panel mural was created for the "Seattle Art Interruptions" public art project, "with funding from Seattle Department of Transportation and Seattle Parks and Recreation."

Kicking off the exhibition program at Roq La Rue's new Seattle space in Pioneer Square will be Stacey Rozich's Within Without Me. We have been showing Rozich's work on the site for a few years, but this show is noted for "a jump up from previous shows containing larger, more complex works rendered in her trademark mediums of watercolor and gouache, as well as a deeper, more profound exploration of contemporary global social political themes."

Hands down one of the most impressive spots we have seen in a while! Kyt crew did this massive tarp cutout on a building in Seattle and some how nailed the proportions for the lettering, no easy task. It’s also not your off the beaten path spot, you can see this clearly from the 5 freeway. Round of applause.

On view at the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park Pavilion through April 14, 2013, Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto created this massive wave mural entirely with silver paint pens and a blue painted backdrop. Cinto, a few assistants, and 20 volunteers took over 2 weeks and nine hours a day to create this beautiful installation.

If you've ever dreamed of what an ant farm would look like if all of the ants were replaced with fully nude (with the exception of some socks) human beings, David Peterman is here to answer your prayers. He asked 100 people to populate the ant farm to create this piece and displayed the finished Ant Farm at the Seattle Erotic Art Fest in June of 2012. If the Ant Farm had been printed full size, it would be a structure 30 ft. high and 40 ft. wide- thats a lot of naked little ants.

Italian artist Marco Mazzoni, who we have featured on the site and will be featured in the December issue of Juxtapoz, just opened a new series of colored pencil works, River of Milk, at Roq La Rue in Seattle. We can't believe it, but this is the solo debut of Mazzoni stateside. What have we Americans been thinking?
