Juxtapoz launched with the mission of connecting
modern genres like psychedelic and hot rod art, graffiti, street art, and
illustration, to the context of broader more historically recognized genres
of art like Pop, assemblage, old master painting, and conceptual art.
Although based in San Francisco, Juxtapoz was founded upon the belief in the
virtues of Southern California pop culture and freedom from the conventions
of the "established" New York City art world. Ferus Gallery, run by
Walter Hopps and Irving Blum in the 1950s and 1960s, was the ultimate
cultural touchstone for the magazine. Juxtapoz features fresh artwork with an underground
style, often featuring graffiti art updates and unusual illustrators. It’s existed since 1994,
and was started by a group of young artists and designers. They also publish
a monthly print magazine. You can send your magazine illustration submissions
to their editors via their online form: just include a quick description and
links to your work.
