Vhils for Nuart 2011 Video

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 03, 2012
When we were in Stavanger, Norway for Nuart 2011, one of the most impressive artists that we met was Vhils, the Portuguese fine artist who created this incredible indoor installation of duel skulls. In a decaying, beautilful old brewery, Vhils and crew carved out this piece right out of the wall. And, there were some great street pieces as well...

We got to spend a lot of time getting to know more about Brooklyn-based Dan Witz last week in Stavanger, Norway for Nuart.

Juxtapoz @ Nuart: Visiting the Norwegian Petroleum Museum

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 03, 2011
If you didn't know, Norway is extremely rich, expensive to visit, has lots of petroleum, charges a lot for beer and food, and is very upfront that the reason this is the case is because they have oil. And they celebrate this very nonchalant fact by having a Norwegian Petroleum Museum in the town center of Stavanger.

In short, the experience was out of a Viking movie, with an amazing fog bank and rural environment.
