Nuart 2013: M-City Paints the Control Tower of Stavanger (SOLA) International Airport

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
We believe it has been confirmed: Polish artist M-City is the first person ever to paint a mural on the control tower of a major international airport. For Nuart 2013, the artist was commissioned by Stavanger Airport (SOLA) in Norway to paint the tower, so when flights come in and out of the airport, the first thing they see is the industrial style of one of the world's leading muralists. Considering Stavanger is a city known for major oil business, we think this is a major coup for Nuart.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
You've seen the work of Linnea Strid on our site before, her hyper realist style is well suited to her intimate subject matter. She is able to capture 'the figurative with a very heightened sensibility,' emphasizing the details and 'textures that make her work uncannily amplified.'

Sand Art by Jim Denevan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
We know that a lot of people are aware of the earth sculptures of Jim Denevan (or better said, his sand sculpting), but we figure, summer is almost over, and there should be at least one nice beach/sand post this year.

Playful Street Art by Ian Stevenson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
"Ian's ideas are crammed into his head like toys in a popular middle-class boy's bedroom...Ian's eyes are keener than a trucker's on special trucker speed and with those soppy old big blues of his he began to notice all over blank, cheerless surfaces, gaping and desolate waiting to be filled: a discarded fridge here, an abandoned gas fire there, rubbish bags and cardboard boxes, all with handy blank spaces, acting like fertilizer to ripen Ian’s mind."

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
We don't know much about the artists Francisco Infante-Arana & Nonna Gorunova, or about these photos. Using mirrored sculptures to interupt the landscapes, the duo, part of a collective of premier Russian avant-garde artists known as the Movement Group.

The Work of Hannah Antalek

Erotica // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Hannah Antalek's work is an exploration and critique of America that references pop culture and consumerism with social and political undercurrents. She attempts to bridge the divide of high and low art by using tacky colors and cliche or kitschy iconography in contrast with sanctified or stereotypically beautiful imagery. This juxtaposition aims to reinforce the cynical yet humorous attitude towards her subject.

DALeast, Faith 47, and C215 all had works around town, with DAL and Faith having massive murals right in the heart of the city center, and C215 had both a mural and a bunch of little stencil gems littered about the town.
