Russian artist Rustam Qbic just returned from Norway where he was invited by the UpNorth Festival.
Painting on the streets of Bodø, Rustam created a large mural entitled “After School”. The piece shows a young kid using spray paint to paint a large Aurora Borealis above his hometown.
The Aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.
Auroras that occur in the northern hemisphere are called ‘Aurora Borealis’ or ‘northern lights’ and auroras that occur in the southern hempishere are called ‘Aurora Australis’ or ‘southern lights’.
