Kenny Scharf's 250 Spray-Painted Faces in
For an artist whose shiny, dayglo work is a joyous, effervescent overstatement, it was a bit of  understatement when he recently shrugged and declared that he’s been making emojis for years—1981 to be exact. That’s typical, self-deprecating Kenny Scharf. Yes, apart from sculpture, performance, video, fashion and street art, he paints, and those bright, expressive round faces are not single-expression stamped yellow tic-tacs. 250 orbicular paintings literally shine through October 31, 2020, in a show called Moodz at Jeffrey Deitch’s Los Angeles gallery.

A Familiar Face: GATS Found Object Nostalgia @ Hashimoto Contemporary, SF
At the beginning of this century, when the cost of living increased in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the city itself became beyond affordable, a migration of artists headed east about 9 miles to Oakland. Graffiti, street art, art walks, galleries and studios began to proliferate, so much so that Oakland became a hotbed of new and standout graffiti pieces recognized around the world. The style felt very Bay: characters mixed with political and social activism, punk aesthetics and squatter lifestyle mixed with skate culture, found object art and DIY shows. One of the artists to emerge with imminently recognizable style and audacious placement was  the anonymous artist GATS (Graffiti Against the System), who takes a signature character and…

Juxtapoz x If You Were Here Now x Ana Leovy
As part of our ongoing series of fundraising prints in collaboration with If You Were Here Now, we have released a print by Cancun, Mexico-based painter Ana Leovy entitled Summer.  Proceeds from the sale will go to support the Lebanese Red Cross who are working on the ground after the unimaginably tragic explosion in Beirut. "I mainly work with gouache and acrylics," Leovy says. "I'm passionate about celebrating diversity through my work, weaving stories through shapes and colors, inspired by fashion, culture, dreams and everyday life. My art intends to represent strong confident characters living in vibrant worlds which are often a fusion between real life and my imagination. I play with the disruption of the human form to reveal my view on both internal and…

Humans of AI: Philipp Schmitt's Algorithm-Generated Collages
Philipp Schmitt’s Declassifier uses a computer vision algorithm trained on COCO, an image dataset developed by Microsoft in 2014. In the work, photographs from Schmitt’s series “Tunnel Vision” are tested and overlaid with images from which the algorithm learned in the first place. The generated collages unfold over the duration of the project, showing all COCO images that contributed to a given classification. If a car is identified in one of Schmitt’s photographs, all the cars included in the dataset that trained the algorithm surface on top of it.

Radio Juxtapoz ep 051: Dan Witz On How the Whole World Became One Big Mosh Pit
Dan Witz is a pioneer man in so many ways, and has lived so many different lives that speaking with him in any setting that isn't a 6 hour session would prove to be difficult. He was painting Baroque style realism at Cooper Union in the late 1970s when Neo-Expressionism was becoming the craze,  painting hummingbirds and doing street art in lower Manhattan when graffiti entered the art mainstream consciousness, was a Punk when Hip Hop was taking over NYC and began painting his iconic "mosh pits" when no one dared to touch realism again. Now in 2020, he is back with political street art, in the belly of the beast in the battleground states with powerful messages about the…
