Nuart 2013

So, like the doofus that I am, I never uploaded the images I took during my time volunteering with Nuart 2013 in Stavanger. These images give me such a wonderful tingle when I see them again now, almost 5 months later, because it was such a fantastic experience. Helping out some of the industry’s best artists for a whole week make some huge, massive art on walls outside was exactly what I want to do with my life. Granted, I could have done without the rain, and less menial tasks such given to lowly volunteers such as myself, but at least I got free food out of it. (And a HUGE thanks to Martyn Reed and the artists for giving me permission to take photos and post them to my tiny, insignificant blog and also for making me feel so welcome!) If anyone is interested in urban art, then Stavanger is like a holy land of sorts – the entire city is covered. Many of these pieces were either local or left over from previous Nuart Festivals, so the whole city is simply covered! I really loved to take pictures of all the tags and art allover the city – from big wall pieces to tiny,mindless scribbles. It has a fantastic dynamic.

Nuart normally takes place in the beginning of September, and I highly recommend a visit!

This is only about 1/6 of what I took, but I lost my memory stick somewhere in Bergen a week later…..sigh. Guess I’ll just have to take them again next year…
