18-year-old urban art fanatic RJ Rushmore is the young mind behind the upcoming group show, The Thousands. The show will feature works by the likes of Banksy, Barry McGee, Blek le Rat, José Parlá, Judith Supine (shown above), Shepard Fairey, Swoon, WK Interact, and more. Naturally, we were a little curious about how a teenager has been able to organize a show of this magnitude, so we threw a few questions RJ's way.

The work of Rob Sato and Joseph To (Juxtapoz #104) is now on display in a showing curated by longtime friend, David Choe. Both these artist's unique renderings are simultaneously humorous, beautiful, and bizarre. We'd expect nothing less from these guys.

As I’m sure that you know, Shepard Fairey: Supply and Demand opens at the Andy Warhol Museum this October. As if to verify his street cred amidst the glitter of the opening of this 20-year retrospective show and his recent surge in mainstream popularity, Fairey has been making his mark around the Pittsburgh area.
