Only a few weeks after completing the monumental piece in Tehran together with Guido Van Helten, past Juxtapoz cover artist Fintan Magee has finished another impressive mural, this time for Start India in Panjim, Goa, India.

Page, the former Led Zeppelin guitarist, and Williams have been at loggerheads over the development of Williams’ new £17 million home. Page objected to Williams’ request to add a basement gym and pool to his home, citing his feat that excavation work would damage his mansion that has stood since 1875
