We love looking forward to a good bit of travel. Nuart 2012 is all set, and we are heading back out to Stavanger, Norway this year to take part in one of the world's premiere public art festivals. This year's lineup, including a little conference featuring Juxtapoz, will include Ron English, Saber, Hownosm, Eine, and others.

Our good friends at Nuart, whom we featured in our May 2012 Public Art issue, and who hold down a few great public art and music festivals in Stavanger, Norway each year, just opend a permanent gallery space, Reed Projects, and their inaugural show, The Rejects, in Stavanger this past weekend. They kicked off the new space with a group show that encapsulates a bunch of the artists who have created murals in and around Stavanger each year.

One of our favorite people we got to hang out with in Norway this past Fall was NYC-based Dan Witz, a street and fine artist who has been creating this great interventions for decades, little suprises for those who pay attention to the minute details of the urban experience. Here is a video of Witz getting up and moving along across Stavanger.

One of our favorite newcomers we met at Nuart this past Fall was Italian artist Tellas, who put together a beautiful multi-storied mural and intricate installation piece in Stavanger. All we can say about Tellas is watch out for him, because there is already a clear vision and style coming from this young artist.

We always we knew we loved the work of Escif (the cover of the February 2011 issue) and Hyuro, but when they went with a Guy Debord quote to be the centerpiece of their installation at Nuart in Norway this past Fall, we knew we had kindered souls. Watch the video of the Spanish artists after the jump . . .

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...

When we were at Nuart this past Fall, Herbert Baglione's installation room was one of the highlights, as the Sao Paulo-based artist had paid tribute to the 69 victims of the Norway UTØYA ) massacre that occured in the country earlier in 2011. The work, when completed, was a moving tribute and stunning piece.

Just when we were really beginning to miss Stavanger, Norway, the good people of Nuart just sent us this timelapse of David Choe and DVS-1 painting their black light installation room. Lucky you, you get to read about DVS-1 in an upcoming issue of Juxtapoz.

We got to spend a lot of time getting to know more about Brooklyn-based Dan Witz last week in Stavanger, Norway for Nuart. And one thing we learned is he works methodically and quickly, and by the time we got settled in the hotel, Dan had taken over the city with his floating eyeballs and king baby pieces.
