Olek and the Bull on Wall Street—Video

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 04, 2011
The Wall Street bull got a bit covered by NYC artist Olek, who is a crochet titan. She could crochet your house if she wanted to. Her newest crochet victim or lucky guest also had some video shot with it, because we think most of you would like to see how one crochets on Wall Street. Has to be a first, a least since the days of Washington. Video after the jump . . .

Kenji Nakayama for Woodward Gallery Project Space

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 03, 2011
Kenji Nakayama is profiled in our January 2011 issue, and the piece we featured in the magazine sits outside the Woodward Gallery Project Space in NYC. The piece was up from October through December, but our guess is that you may still be able to see across from Woodward Gallery right now. See what our contributing editor, Caleb Neelon, had to say about Kenji after the jump . . .

Film of 2010, Part 1—Exit Through the Gift Shop

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 31, 2010
Perhaps the film that everyone wanted to pre-judge and dismiss as part of the perceived "over-hype" of Banksy turned out to be the biggest surprise of 2010. Not only was the film entertaining, funny, and controversial, but was actually a well-made, great bit of filmmaking. It transcended typical street art and art circles and became a film that masses could enjoy. Most people we spoke to, some of the early critics, even admired Banksy's 2010 project to reimagine the art world. More after the jump . . .

The Plastic Bag Monster in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 23, 2010
Ljubljana, Slovenia is one of the hidden gems of Europe, and now apparently it's home for really interesting street art sculptures. The Plastic Bag Monster is a project by The Miha Artnak done in November 2010, where they "collected 40.000 used plastic bags and 7.500 used plastic cups from 12 kindergartens, 21 primary schools, 4 high schools and 3 faculties from the city of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and from more than 500 people from Ljubljana."

Banksy says his movie is real, nominated for top British film award

Street Art // Wednesday, December 22, 2010
Exit Through the Gift Shop continues to have a strong year, as Banksy's film was nominated by the London Critics' Circle for the Breakthrough British Filmmaker award. Not bad for someone who came in halfway on the project (or so it seems). And on that front, Mr Banksy says the film is entirely true. More after the jump . . .

New book from DRAN—I Love My World

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 20, 2010
As you can tell, we really like French artist Dran on this site. There is a good spirit to the work, a good amount of humor and wit that resonates with the foundation of the magazine. Dran is a busy man at the moment, showing at "Marks & Stencils" and at Pictures on Walls in London, and he now has a new book out, I Love My World. More information after the jump . . .

New York street art: Chelsea to Bushwick

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 20, 2010
While in Chelsea and Bushwick yesterday I took a few photos. Comme Des Garcons on 10th as always had a full wall, and still strictly enforce their "no in store photography" policy, cool spot though. Bushwick had a little of everything , even finding an old Faile piece and some "wild things"...

(We can't confirm, so we just should just say "Coming Soon . . . "). See some of BLU's greatest hits after the jump . . .
