NuArt Festival to Hit NorwayJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 11 Aug 2009
Nuart, the annual international street art festival based in Stavanger on the West Coast of Norway, will run this year from the first week in September for a month. An international team of street artists, including Swoon, David Choe, and Judith Supine, will start to leave their mark on the city's walls and contribute to a one month long Nuart static show.
“We have an incredible line up of New York's finest flying into our little hamlet this year,” write the creators of NuArt. “Nuart 2009 is dedicated to those artists either living, working or who have made an outstanding contribution to Brooklyn and New York's Street Art scene over the past years. We're absolutely honoured to be in a position to host this event. In 1825 the first official Norwegian immigrants left these shores to settle in Brooklyn, at one point, over 200 000 Norwegians could be found living in the borough where, over the years, they left their mark.
“We thought it only right that someone should invite a few Brooklynites to Stavanger to get their own back...traces of which we hope to see many years down the line.”
The full line up includes:
Swoon, David Choe, Ben Wolf, Graffiti Research Lab, Brad Downey, Judith Supine, Leon Reid IV, Chris Stain, Logan Hicks, and Skewville.
This year’s NuArt Festival will run from September 10 - October 9,2009.
