This Literary Arts Magazine ♥’s That Literary Arts Magazine

17 Oct

In a word where we constantly hear about the dire condition of print publication, I think it proper to take a moment to give Juxtapoz an ardent round of applause. In the early 1990’s, a group of west coast artists hatched an ambitious plan: to create an arts and culture magazine that at once celebrated and defined urban alternative and underground contemporary art. The goal was to elevate and proliferate genres of art often overlooked in the more traditional art scene, to instead exalt graffiti, car art, illustration, and other edgy forms of expression.

Sixteen years since, this arts and culture mag has risen to prominence as the most circulated publication within the genre of artistic periodicals. Over the years, Juxtapoz has increased in breadth and sophistication, but still holds true to its founding principles. The artists are considered without regard to fame or formal training, the art is nuanced and accomplished, and the community creates its own vogue.
