Nina Ghafari’s work is a raw and often painful testament to her unfiltered exploration of memory and self through text and image. A self taught artist whose short lived spell at art school showed her that the teaching of “art” for some social classes, was nothing more than an attempt to condition and mute the often brutal realities and associated creativity of those operating outside mainstream culture. Her show at Reed Projects in Stavanger, Norway will run through July 18, 2015.

We have a personal love for this show here at Juxtapoz, as Dotmasters has always been on the ground working his ass off helping to produce the wonderful Nuart Festival each year in Stavanger, Norway. Dotmasters is heading back to Stavanger a little early this year for a solo show at Nuart-founder Martyn Reed's Reed Projects space opening this Saturday, May 30.

Reed Projects has just opend and organized Norwegian artist DOT DOT DOT (NO) debut solo show, "While You Slept..." in Stavnager, Norway. In 2007, after almost a decade of graffiti writing under various names and guises, Dot Dot Dot took to stencil art with a passion. Since then he has become renowned for his distinctive style of classic stencil art with a sense of dark and humorous pop.

Each year when we head to Nuart in Stavanger, Norway, we always like meeting and learning about new waves of European street artists. One artist who has been at Nuart in the past is Anders "STRØK" Gjennestad, who now has an exhibition of stencil works at Stavanger's Reed Projects.

It gives Reed Projects great pleasure to introduce this exhibition and in particular, this artist to the gallery. Erik has been on our radar for quite sometime and when we first saw this series, knew immediately that it was right for Reed Projects. Erik is a self taught artist and a recognised (often outspoken) creative force in the regions visual art scene, unafraid to confront and challenge traditional fine art institutions, including those established to support fellow artists, Erik has successfully fought to be formally recognised as a professional artist.
