Cover artist and participating Detroit artist RETNA has a new video on LA Forward that shows him giving a tour of his mural in downtown LA that he painted with Mac based on a photograph by Estevan Oriol. What was supposed to be informative turns a tad confrontational as a man near the mural starting shouting at the film crew and Retna. Watch after the jump . . .

Chaz Bojorquez, a Juxtapoz cover artist in March 2009 and a penultimate legend of the Los Angeles graffiti game (we are talking Orson Welles level), made a video this past Fall with poet Idris Goodwin. Titled "New Mexico Remix," the piece was part of a three-month look at Hip-Hop culture and free speech showcased at a non-profit art space in Albuquerque, called 516 ARTS. Video after the jump . . .

Tod Seelie just posted another quick video upon his wrap-up visit to Detroit for the Juxtapoz artist project, this time revisiting the great collaboration we all saw between RETNA and Richard Colman.
