Brendan Monroe is one of the best, and if you head over and follow him on Instagram you will see the Oakland-based artist is working on some amazing stuff at the moment. Last year, Monroe created one of the murals for the Juxtapoz and Converse Wall to Wall project, and recently, he was creating some site-specific art that will be housed as window displays at the downtown San Francisco Converse store. Justin Carlson headed over to Monroe's studio to see the process...

Hiro Kurata is one of our favorite artists working today, with his eclectic mix of Eastern and Western styles, and this consistent baseball uniform motif that you see in each painting. Hiro just opened a solo show, Oh Yes We Did, at The Gallery in Morris/Lakeside, Connecticut, and had a studio visit documentary filmed about his practice. We got the video here, and info on the new show!

A few days ago, our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America had the opportunity to visit the studio of designers and artists, Morning Breath in Brooklyn.

They have worked with Juxtapoz in the past on both a special print release and magazine feature.

We stopped by Kevin Earl Taylor's San Francisco studio ahead of his upcoming exhibit with David Ellis at Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles this weekend. Taylor’s paintings depict stark, surreal landscapes that seem like moments frozen in time. Animals and animal parts confront the viewer and each other, forms tied together by a common visual thread or somehow fused into one another and their surroundings...

Ahead of her upcoming show at Merry Karnowski Gallery in Los Angeles this Saturday, we stopped by Deedee Cheriel's studio for a little visit! Deedee Cheriel transforms personal experience into folklore through an amalgam of influences both personal and universal. East Indian Art, spirituality, environmentalism, ritual, and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest all inform the artist's work and give context to often-personal narratives...

Os Gemeos have always been synonymous with Brazil and the city of São Paulo. But it didn't even fully register until the twins painted the Brazilian National Football (Soccer) team's plane for the upcoming 2014 World Cup that the fact that they had become a national treasure was a reality.
