As every year, the big finale of 15th edition of Nuart in Stavanger was the big indoor show at the tunnels of an old brewery that is today’s Tou Scene. Close to 400 people attended the official opening on the 5th of September, witnessing some exceptional work produced in only couple of days.
This year’s show included works by legendary NYC graffiti icon Futura, right next to Norway’s favorite, Martin Whatson. Iranian art duo Icy & Sot created a minimalist yet striking installation of a lush green tree made of plastic bags while Ella & Pitr juxtapozed their gigantic characters against Isaac Cordal‘s miniature business men. Italian Pixel Pancho and Portuguese Bordalo II got inspired by the oil industry in Stavanger while creating their sculptures and Bortusk Leer went completely mad with his colorful monsters. For his 2nd festival attendance, Ernest Zacharevic created an installation inspired by the Europe’s huge migration crisis.
