The 16th edition of the Nuart festival in Stavanger officially kicked off last Saturday, September 10, with the opening of an amazing Post-Street Art group show at the legendary art venue Tou Scene (covered).
This year’s festival counted with the participation of internationally renowned artists like Add Fuel (PT), Axel Void (US), Evol (DE), Fintan Magee (AU), Henrik Uldalen (NO), Hyuro (AR), Jaune (BE), Jeff Gillette (US), KennardPhillipps (UK), Nipper (NO), Robert Montgomery (UK), SpY (ES), MTO (FR), Hama Woods (NO) and others who, following this year’s festival identity, focused on concepts like play and Situationism.
The work created for this year’s festival can in many ways be labeled as “post-street art”, that is, work that cannot longer be regarded as, and only as, ‘street art’. It belongs to a new reality that has incorporated them into the contemporary art world providing refreshing new alternatives to the scene.
Here is a small selection of some great pieces from this year’s festival.
Many thanks to Nuart’s Martyn Reed, artists and organisers for making such a great event possible!
