Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine (pronounced Jucks-tah-pozz) is a magazine created in 1994 by a group of artists and collectors including Robert Williams, C.R. Stecyk, Greg Escalante and others to both help define and celebrate urban contemporary art. It is published by High Speed Productions, the same company who publishes Thrasher Skateboard magazine in San Francisco, California.
It reflects Williams' own sensibility - a combination of California "Big Daddy" Ed Roth-style pop surrealism (identified by some as synonymous with low brow art and others as its own genre...) and the serious figurative craftsmanship that is more likely to be found among illustrators than fine artists today.
Many famed illustrators and painters received their first serious recognition in Juxtapoz, including Lori Earley, Mark Ryden, among others.
Currently, Juxtapoz has the largest circulation of any art magazine in the United States.
Gwynned Vitello, C.R. Stecyk III, along with Williams, are executive editors.
