Nuart Aberdeen 2017

nuart-aberdeen_logo_social-2017

This April, after 15 years of continuous and successful festivals in their hometown of Stavanger, Nuart Festival will be hosting their first edition outside Norway. Coming to UK for the first time, they recently announced Nuart Aberdeen that will take place from Friday 14 – Sunday 16 April.

Staying true to their tested and proven concept, the project will include a series of site-specific murals, installations, interventions, and temporary exhibitions, along with a program of talks, presentations, film screenings, walking tours and workshops. Always focused on redefining the public space, bringing art to uncommon places and triggering critical and creative thinking with the general population, this initiative was recognized by the Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council who were looking for a special way to mark Aberdeen’s year of ‘History, Heritage and Archaeology’. With this in mind the festival seeks to reveal how street art can create an environment for a more imaginative use of public space, encourage community engagement, make art accessible to all, and create talking points in the city, as well as brightening up neglected spaces in the city center.

The organizers recently announced the lineup which includes 11 international artists, mostly Nuart’s long time friends and collaborators – Robert Montgomery, Fintan Magee, Herakut, Add Fuel, Isaac Cordal, M-city, Jaune, Martin Whatson, Julian de Casabianca, Nipper and Alice Pasquini.

Add Fuel Paints New Mural for Muraliza in Cascais, Portugal

Diogo Machado aka Add Fuel recently took part in Muraliza 2016 festival held in Torre neighborhood of Cascais, Portugal. Using his stencil style based on traditional “azulejo” ceramic, the work by Portuguese artist aims to bring past local traditions and culture to the present.
Built in the 1960’s, Torre was originally designed as a suburb to relocate fishermen and their families that inhabited the center of the village. With only 30ish buildings, these families still reside in the area and the artist decided to paint a tribute to their tradition. The mural titled “Avarina” is dedicated to the “varinas”, wives of the local fishermen that were selling fresh fish brought home by their husbands. It turned out that the actual building he was painting on was the exact spot where local “varina” Helene was selling fish few decades ago. (Photo by Miguel Oliveira)

ARTURb: imprisonment is a beautiful way to free art on the streets.

This summer we chose Lagos for our holiday destination. We were looking for beautiful, quiet beaches,  nice hot stretches in the sun, cool places for drinks before dinner, and, yes, a little bit of buzz.  No more expectations.  The truth is we had much more than that: we ended up being struck by what we found on the city walls.

As you start to wander the alleys you literally bump into pieces from international artists such as ROA, BEZT, SAINER, ARYZ, SEPE, ONUR or BORONDO, to mention some, in addition to works from well known Portuguese ones as MÁRIO BELÉM, MAISMENOS, ADDFUEL, amongst others. It wouldn’t be as dazzling if we were in Berlin or Buenos Aires; the thing is it takes place in Lagos, a tiny spot on the Portuguese map, a small picturesque village. How the hell is this happening here?
