For the July 2011 issue of Juxtapoz, we teamed up for a special 3-part interview with James Franco, Aaron, Young, and filmmaker Harmony Korine to discuss the making of their collaborative project, "Rebel," made exclusively for the Venice Biennale this summer. Along with Douglas Gordan, Paul McCarthy, and Ed Ruscha, Franco compiled Young and Korine to create an entire site-specific installation based on the legend of James Dean and the seminal film "Rebel Without a Cause."
Also in July, we feature the work of train-hopping graffiti artist and photographer that has been making cult-like buzz over the past few years, Swampy. We were able to hop trains through Nevada and California with the elusive artist for the interview.
We round out the issue with pieces on Neil Farber, tattoo artist Jose Lopez, Mark Mulroney, and a special discussion with Star Wars icon, and fine artist, Billy Dee Williams.
