Rustam Qbic “After School” Mural in Bodo, Norway

qbic-bodo1

Russian artist Rustam Qbic has been very busy lately traveling the globe and painting recognizable surrealist murals. He recently flew back to Norway, this time to take part @ Upnorth festival in Bodo.

Visiting the quaint and remote parts of Norway for the first time, the artist was impressed with the nature and the peaceful life there. This inspired him to create more playful image than what we’re used from him. “After School” depicts a young boy spraying the Northern Lights onto the sky with his spray paint. The finished piece nicely blends his love for graffiti, the movement that opened the doors of the world for him, along with this beautiful local phenomenon, adding the local townscape to the image. Keeping his illustrative aesthetics and attention to detail, as well as creating surrealist imagery, Qbic certainly justified his 2nd invitation to Norway in less than 2 months with this piece.
