Australian artist Trent Whitehead has an upcoming show in Melbourne, titled Cornucopia. Unveiling an installation and new work, Whitehead’s Cornucopia will open this Friday, August 29th, 2008 and is presented by Lee and Monster Children Gallery. Word is Cornucopia’s supposed to be quite something. Good thing our Australian-based buddy Alana Armstrong took some time to write about Mr Whitehead’s upcoming show, because the artist has “been slaving away for the last year,” says Armstrong. And slaving artists deserve a lil love.

"Players want to play, and ballers want to ball!" If you were lucky enough to catch Stephen "Espo" Powers outside his Coney Island sign shop singing an R. Kelly jam, you know the man and his style. The December 2007 issue of Juxtapoz celebrates the "Art of Getting Over" author Stephen Powers as the godfather of taking art from the streets to the gallery. But the fun won't stop there: Matzu MTP gives Juxtapoz a run-down on the Brooklyn scene, Evan Hecox says goodbye to San Francisco and hello to some nature, Liz McGrath reminisces about grade-school, Charles Glaubitz gives Tijuana an artistic face, and Mister Cartoon talks with Jack Rudy about the origins of Los Angeles tattoo art. [JUXTAPOZ Issue #82 - NOVEMBER 2007] On sale now.
