Graffiti artists redecorate old US Air Force planes

We don’t tend to associate graffiti atists tend with war, unless they’re protesting against it. But when the chance came for some of the world’s best “writers” (Retna, Andrew Shcoultz, Bast etc) to decorate five USAF planes at a an old airbase base in Arizona, it was obviously too good to miss. The exercise was the second part of the Boneyard Project, overseen by patron Eric Firestone.

He said: “The first part of the Boneyard Project, Nose Job, made its debut in the summer of 2011 with an exhibition of nose cones taken from military aeroplanes and given to artists to use as eccentric- shaped ‘canvases’. The second instalment in this series: Round Trip: Selections from The Boneyard Project, features five monumental works created on military planes by a dynamic selection of popular graffiti and street artists from around the world.”
