Last week i was in Stavanger for the opening of NUART 2013. On sunday the wonderful crew of NUART organized a small guided tour in the city to discover the new walls from this year’s edition of the festival. At the beginning of the tour one of the guides told us that at Tou Scene is possible to find a short history of norwegian stencil art, with pieces og Dolk, Pøbel, Strøk, Martin Whatson, MIR, just in front of the exibition’s entrance.
From Street Art News website: “This week, SAN travelled to Norway to bring you a visit from one of the most celebrated street art festival in the world aka NUART.
Based on the West Coast, Stavanger, it has attracted some of the world’s finest artist over the past few years, from Swoon to Herakut, Roa, Blu, Herakut, Phlegm or David Choe, Nuart has definitely a very international flavor”.
I wasn’t there last year for NUART 2010 – The “landmark “series, and i had to catch up this year.
After one year in rainy norwegian west coast weather i didn’t expect to find too much left, but i think that all the works still do quite well (except maybe Dolk’s one).
A much better video about NUART 2010 here.
A wonderful selection of b&w pictures here.
