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. Glad to see him continue to stay true to his roots.

“My lawyers filed my response to The AP’s claims against me on Tuesday,” writes Shepard Fairey (Juxtapoz cover #82). “It includes a dozen examples of AP photographs that consist almost entirely of copyrighted artwork from me and other artists. Today, The AP issued a statement accusing me of 'making attacks' on them.” The story continues here…

“Hi folks. I'm taking another moment on my soapbox here,” writes artist and Juxtapoz contributing writer, Caleb Neelon. “This time, I'd like to talk about the Boston trial of Shepard Fairey, and why it is bad for Boston, regardless of whether you hate or love him and his work.” Neelon spoke at the ICA in Boston last Saturday and made some interesting points, which many requested he post online.

KQED’s art program, Spark, profiled David Choe (Juxtapoz cover #72) in this video segment the artist recently posted on his blog, stating, “See how skinny I was when I got out of jail in this clip, KQED just sent to me!” True, Choe is the contemporary art world’s favorite badass, having survived time in a Japanese jail, amongst many other extreme situations. We see these as fuel for his amazing artistry. ”I’ve had the door shut on my face so many times. Rejection, rejection, rejection. And I don’t really care to get my art critiqued. And I don’t really care what you think about it,” Choe states in the video. “No one goes to museums anyways, so it’s this whole attitude and I just steal a can of paint and go out and paint all this stuff of the freeway and a you know, a thousand people will see it before 8 o’clock on the 101 freeway than the 10 or hundred people that would have ever seen it over the course of a month in an art gallery.” Word. Speaking of gallery work, get all the info on Choe's upcoming solo in China, Deathblossom, at PYO Gallery here.
