It feels like Mario Ayala is the perfect emerging artist for the 25th Anniversary of Juxtapoz. His auto flake and acrylic works fit into the history of early outsider and car culture practices, with each canvas full of Southern California and pop-culture details. His newest solo show, Give a Dog a Bad Name and Hang Him, may be his strongest body of work to date, featuring airbrushed paintings on canvas and works on paper that solidify his position as a true West Coast artist to watch.
