VNA were invited to check out NUART Festival in Norway, apart from being rainy and £10-a-beer expensive, it was also pretty good. These are some of the shots from Henrik Haven and Butterfly of what went on (mainly because they’re heaps better photographers than any of the VNA team)

TILT @ Montana Shop Montpellier

VNA favourite and Issue 14 feature star TILT  had a successful show launch at the Montana Shop & Gallery in Montpellier last week. TILT and partner in crime MIST hit Montpellier hard, with street throw ups and collaborative show pieces.

The show itself, entitled “ABC” saw the king of bubble letters tackling pieces built from the alphabet and placed into various familiar forms – the ever-present Spongebob, heels, superheroes and more. TILT also mixed it up with photographs of its larger artistic installations, preparatory drawings of the show pieces and huge fabric piece “ABCdaire”. It also saw the  launch of his Deck’ On collab blogged here, which sold out.

Deck'On x TILT

French label Deck’On collaborated artists to produce a series of skate decks last year. For 2011 they’ve up their game still further taking a roster of Frenchies including both TILT and MIST and adding into the mix Alexone, Gum, Jace, Nasty, Smash137, Speedy Graphito, Sun7 and Tanc.

And they’ve gone all limited edition too, scaling back on the numbers (each artist only produces 30 sets) but upping the concept – with each artist creating a triptyque set of decks. First up is this this remix of Jim Phillips’ classic Screaming Hand illustration done for Santa Cruz by TILT. Although pricey at €290 (or €350 for a signed eidtion of 5) it is still limited and the execution is top quality.
