Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine is a magazine created by painter Robert Williams to celebrate the genius of low brow art. It is published by Fausto Vitello's 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, as detailed in low brow art entry) and the serious figurative craftmanship 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 Mark Ryden.

C.R. Stecyk III, along with Williams is an executive editor.
