It's so good to be back. This is our fifth (maybe sixth, who's counting?) year at Nuart, and not only is this the festival's 15th year, but they have an outstanding line-up creating art around Stavanger, Norway with the topic of play and intervention at its heart. We just got into town, and the artists are all hard at work, so before the talks, the drinks, and the unveiling of all the tunnel installations, here is a look at some of the works in progress.

Benjamin Shine's Fabric Sculpture Installations http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/benjamin-shine-s-fabric-sculpture-installations http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/benjamin-shine-s-fabric-sculpture-installations Artist Benjamin Shine's latest installation in Canberra, Australia are composed of more than 2000 meters of tulle fabric. "I began playing around with the idea of dancers because it was something I'd been working on, and I wanted to use the tulle because it links to dance and ballet," he told the Canberra Times. "And it's the first time they've been suspended from the ceiling as three-dimensional pieces that are like sculptures, and it's the first time I've used lighting to back light them so it's entirely new territory."]]> Editor@juxtapoz.com (Juxtapoz) Juxtapoz Thu, 03 Sep 2015 02:35:28 -0700 Graphite Drawings by Melissa Cooke http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/graphite-drawings-by-melissa-cooke http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/graphite-drawings-by-melissa-cooke Graphite Drawings by Melissa Cooke

Watch: Tobin Yelland on his latest HUF Collaboration http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/tobin-yelland-x-huf http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/tobin-yelland-x-huf Watch: Tobin Yelland on his latest HUF Collaboration
Born in Berkeley, CA, Tobin Yelland picked up photography at an early age with a focus on his immediate surroundings—the subculture and lifestyle of skateboarding. First published in Thrasher Magazine at age 15, Yelland's work has since expanded beyond the world of skateboarding to become a collection of images that lend voice to an entire generation, transcending many locales and social identities. He and Keith Hufnagel first met while shooting skate photos together in the early 1990s in New York City, and later lived together as roommates in Tobin’s Glen Park house in San Francisco along with Mickey Reyes in the mid 90s

WWII Airplane Pin-Ups http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/wwii-airplane-pin-ups http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/wwii-airplane-pin-ups WWII Airplane Pin-Ups
From Viking ships to Egyptian chariots, warriors and soldiers have been decorating their weapons and vehicles for a very long time. In more modern times, the practice of putting personalized decorations on aircraft originated with Italian and German pilots in the early 1900s. This was followed by the popular practice of German pilots in WWI painting a mouth underneath the propeller's spinner. In World War II, female pin-up art began to appear and continued to it's peak during the Korean War. The decoration were tolerated by officials because it was scene as helping boost the morale of soldiers. Here is a collection of some of that nose art...
