Juxtapoz // Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Norwegian photographer and installation artist Rune Guneriussen has been on our radar recently, perhaps because Juxtapoz just spent time in Norway, or maybe because these installations created in nature are some of the most stunning (and random) we have seen in quite some time.

Juxtapoz, and a few artists themselves, arrived at Nuart in Stavanger, Norway today, setting off a dash of art being created both in a special installation and around the town. We caught up with Dan Witz, Phlegm, Herbert Baglione, David Choe, Escif, Hyuro, and the Nuart organizers.

We are a few hours away from our European festival tour, and the good people of Nuart just sent us some great photographs of UK-based Lucy McLauchlan painting the Obrestad Lighthouse off the coast of Jaeren, which is a protected national heritage site. And Lucy has permission to paint it with her great fine art style.

As Juxtapoz is set to descend upon Stavanger, Norway for the 2011 Nuart Festival, the good people of Nuart are set to release a comprehensive history of the street art festival, Eloquent Vandals: The History of Nuart Norway. On October 1, 2011, the festival will open with a party and book launch event in Stavanger.

Clever stuff. Oslo, Norway's Lars Marcus Vedeler and Theo Tveterås created a three-dimensional sculpture of the "win" screen on Windows Solitaire. It only took over 1,000 3D playing cards to make it happen... but it was worth it.

Ersa Roise is a Norwegian illustrator based in Oslo. Her work is inspired by small, seemingly insignificant details of everyday life, the fashion industry, music, people around her, awkward moments, and snapshot photography with its odd angles and impulsive nature.

These are all amazing. Norwegian artist, Fredrik Raddum, creates plastic sculptures, all featuring bizarre, sinister, and humorous situations and characters. The Oslo-based artist has dozens and dozens of these sculptures, but we just focus on a few here.
