Nuart 2013 Line-Up Announced (Set-Up + Video)Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 03 Sep 2013
Juxtapoz is very excited that for the 3rd year in a row, we will be heading to Stavanger, Norway for the fantastic international-in-scope street and public art festival, Nuart. Every year, the Nuart crew puts together not only an interesting line-up that let's artists explore new angles and creative versions of their art, but also provides panels and context to public art. This year, David Choe, Vhils, Aiko, Martha Cooper, ROA, C215, Dal East, Faith 47, and M-City are just some of the names that will be on the Western coast of Norway this September...
Ian Cox just shot a few teasers today, with David Choe, Ernest Zacharevic, and Faith47 in progress...
Here is announcement from Nuart:
It gives us great pleasure to announce this years Nuart Festival line up, our most international list of artists yet. 16 artists from 11 countries spanning 4 continents are set to descend on Stavanger, a small town on the West Coast of Norway. Most of the names you will have probably already heard of. From the legendary MARTHA COOPER (US), invited as an artist in her own right and good friend AIKO (JP), enjoying a hugely successful post Faile career, to previous Nuart guests such as DAVID CHOE (US), ROA (BE), VHILS (PT) and M-CITY (PL). First time visitors to the festival include some of the worlds hottest names, artists who over the past couple of years have made a huge impact on the development of street art and who have successfully transitioned from street to gallery and contemporary art museums. South Africa’s FAITH47 and partner in crime DAL EAST (CN) will be joined by Lithuanian born, Malaysian based ERNEST ZACHAREVIC ,who’s groundbreaking interactive mural work last year on the streets of Penang took the internet by storm. The UK’s HUSH continues the Asian link, though in form rather than geography, whilst Parisian based stencil artist c215, already represented on the streets of Oslo, makes a long overdue visit to the west coast. Our very own DOTMASTER (UK), known as much for his production and sometimes curation of Nuart, also makes a welcome return as an artist in his own right. 2013 also sees Nuart delving further into Norway’s scene and history with emerging international stencil artists MARTIN WHATSON, Berlin based STRØK (who graces our posters and profile this year) and DOT DOT DOT, all names we’re sure you’ll be hearing more of over the coming months and years, if not already.
