Featured in our August 2012 issue is San Francisco Bay Area based fine artist, Robert Bowen, who is set to show a new body of work in Lethal Injection, opening August 3 at 111 Minna Gallery. A self-proclaimed TV Baby who creates artwork that feels like a stream of consciousness of 1980's and '90's pop-culture, Juxtapoz contributor Shaun Roberts visits Bowen's studio to see the artist's workspace.

We get a chance to visit with Jeremy Fish every so-often, and generally it is on the occasion of a new exhibition or body of work being built. What we enjoy the most about visiting Fish in his SF North Beach studio is that whatever research or preparation he has compiled while making the work, the remnants are evident throughout his space...

Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez, better known as Dr. Lakra (cover artist in August 2010), is a tattoo artist and illustrator who lives in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, and occasionally can be found tattooing in different studios in Mexico City. Last week our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America had the opportunity to see the process when tattooing a piece of a gypsy with lyrics that read "SinYolanda." We love it.

Prior to showing at RTIST Gallery in Melbourne, our European correspondent Butterfly traveled to the French studio of the Da Mental Vaporz (DMV) Crew to watch them prepare a huge body of work for the show. Bom-K, Blo, Brusk, Dran, Gris1, ISO, Jaw, Kan, and Sowat brought more than 100 pieces of artwork from screenprints to sketches, solo and collective canvases down to Melbourne, and we captured some of the process. Enjoy after the jump . . .

WIth a new solo exhibition at Lazardies Gallery scheduled March 2, 2012, we visited the London studio of Irish-born and former Juxtapoz cover artist, Conor Harrington. Making sure we get a glimpse of just a few of the new works set for Lazarides, Helen Soteriou (who interviewed Charming Baker back January 2012), we find bits of inspiration and influence strung about in Harrington's workspace.

I dropped into my friend Ryan De La Hoz's new studio the other day to take a glimpse at what he had been up to, because I knew it had been a lot- and I really just love his work. After being awarded the Beautiful/Decay Wet Paint grant along with a couple other artists: Skinner, Maya Hayuk, Dereck Albeck, etc, Ryan was just hours away from delivering a handfull of pieces to the StumbleUpon offices in SF, among many other things...
