My T-shirt drawer in the 1980s was as colorful as Steve Nazar made it. I never surfed a day in my life, but his iconic, cartoon cast of T&C Surf graphics, featuring beach-lurking, wave-riding troublemakers helmed by an anthropomorphic gorilla named Thrilla sure as hell made me feel like I was part of something. The only graphic tees successful enough to garner their own Nintendo title, Nazar’s cast eventually faded into obscurity as I faded into adulthood

First things first, like a Fiona Apple album title, let’s visit the full title of Mr.’s newest exhibition at Perrotin in Hong Kong: People misunderstand me and the contents of my paintings. They just think they are nostalgic, cute, and look like Japanese anime
The Juxtapoz team recently came back from Stavanger, Norway for the 18th edition of the esteemed street art festival and academic conference, Nuart Festival. As we have been prepping our recap coverage, one artist in particular we wanted to focus on today, as Korean-born, now Berlin-based Jazoo Yang has not only been creating a fantastic body of work in both Korea and Germany exploring both a political and re-imagining of gentrification, but implementing both historical and contemporary spins on her practice.

Upon further investigation, we found some more of his collage work and discovered that he is also the vocalist and guitarist for Buffalo, NY-based emo band Del Paxton. We’re generally curious about the intersection of music and visual art, and England is an example of how they can come together cohesively.
Last week, I told my parents to fuck off on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. (Metaphorically, not literally.) It was not my proudest moment, and I admit it looks bad upon the surface. But there was more to it than all that, and it just so happened I reached my breaking point on a ceremonially important day.
Exactly a year ago, we enthusiastically premiered Marky Style and Guy Gabriel’s exuberant remix of Evalyn’s “Cherry Lambo” – and so we were excited to hear that the Venice Beach based singer had a new EP, Salvation , coming later this month (9/28).
