Outdoor works getting completed, indoor halls gettin the final touches, and Nuart is almost ready for a full show opening. The street pieces were coming out nice this year, with a few large murals and some great intervention projects going up around Stavanger, Norway.

It is getting busy. Day two was an active one here in Stavanger, where Juxtapoz could walk around the town to catch numerous murals and street pieces taking shape and form. Ron English, How Nosm, Niels Shoe Muelman, and Eine had outdoor murals in progress, while Sickboy, Saber, Aakash Nihalani, Jordan Seiler and others worked out their indoor beer hall installations.

Juxtapoz is back in the lovely Norwegian coastal city of Stavanger for the 2012 edition of Nuart. This year, yours truly (aka Editor Evan Pricco) will be doing a little talking about street art and internet with fellow art editors Tristan Manco and RJ Rushmore of Vandalog, and we get to introduce Ron English at the screening of his Popaganda film. Look forward to our dispatches from the North.

As we announced on the site this past week, former Juxtapoz cover artist SABER was going to take to the skies (much like he did in protest to the public art moratorium in LA last year) to protest Mitt Romney's claim to eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected. And take to the skies SABER did, over NYC this weekend...

As we wrote on the site already, Saber is returning to the skies and his skywriting project, this time in response to Mitt Romney, who stated that he would eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected. After receiving donations, Saber is set to take to the skies above an American city on September 22 or 23, much like he did in LA in response to a mural moratorium. We got involved then, and we are involved now.

Here in the Juxtapoz office, we are getting into the political mood as we just completed our November 2012 Politics issue. (Curated by Ron English, get ready). Just as we were finishing, LA graffiti legend and proponent of public art, Saber, contacted us about a new campaign he was working on: #DefendTheArts. Saber is building a community for a skywriting campaign to illuminate Mitt Romney's declaration that he will eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected.

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.

In the long days and late nights leading to the July 28th opening of the REVOK and SABER show, the excitement was palpable. Friends and neighbors stopped by as a collaborative three-panel piece was completed in the alley behind Known Gallery in Los Angeles....
Graffiti // Friday, July 27, 2012
Every Friday we feature someone old or new, traditional or unconventional, active or not, and so on. This week’s spotlight is on Saber. (Make sure to check out Saber's Beautification exhibition, opening at Known Gallery on Saturday, July 28).
Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 26, 2012
This Saturday, July 28, two legendary graffiti artists, REVOK and SABER, will open new body of works at Known Gallery in Los Angeles (Gilgamesh and Beautification, respectively). In our May 2012 Public Art Issue, we sat down with the two artists to have them discuss the current state of graffiti, their personal history with authorities, and how cities can best capitalize on the positive aspects of graffiti and street art. Here, we have reprinted the article in full.
