VNA were invited to check out NUART Festival in Norway, apart from being rainy and £10-a-beer expensive, it was also pretty good. These are some of the shots from Henrik Haven and Butterfly of what went on (mainly because they’re heaps better photographers than any of the VNA team)
This years event featured a mostly Euro-centric line-up, including Andreco, Borondo, Fra.Biancoshock, Dotdotdot, Etam Cru, Icy & Sot, Levalet, Martin Whatson, Mathieu Tremblin, Strøk, Spy, Tilt, M-City, Maismenos and John Fekner, as well as a rad wonky Scandi-house collab from Liam Hayhow & Epifany.
Nuart Plus also featured a series of talks and panelists discussing two ends of the art spectrum, the safe, increasingly corporate world of ‘street art’ and the more gritty, morally ambiguous sphere of activism. Participants included Natalie Hegert, Erik Sjåholm Knudsen, Evan Pricco, Carlo Mccormick, Jaime Rojo, Steven P. Harrington, RJ Rushmore and Peter Bengtsen.
