So, I kind of have this theory that some things are better left up to the experts, and who better to descripe this lovely issue of Juxtapoz, but the fine folks at Juxtapoz... so here is their description...
Juxtapoz Magazine August 2011 Newsstand Cover #127
We are pleased to announce our August 2011 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine (n127 if you are counting at home), with our covers featuring classic San Francisco graffiti photos of Craig Costello. Twist, Reminisce, and KR are amongst some of the artists featured in Costello's recently never-before seen documentation of a vital period of art and culture that spread from SF to the rest of the world.
Costello currently is exhibiting these photos at MOCA's "Art In the Streets" (along with a nice Krink mailbox set), and we have been working with Costello for quite some time to bring these photos in Juxtapoz. As the magazine was founded in SF right around the same time that Twist, KR, Reminisce, Dug-One, and others were making groundbreaking works in the streets of the Bay Area, it was fitting to showcase the photography now with a major street and graffiti art retrospective was running at MOCA.
Also in August 2011 is Australian illustrator Jonathan Zawada, fine artist Mary Iverson, Mexico City's Saner, music photographer Autumn de Wilde, and Shepard Fairey discusses poster art with Portland legend, Emek.
