We learned a lot from this year's Nuart festival, and the many questions and conversations we had with artists and organziers alike, was that by the time the installations opened on Saturday to kick of the Nuart exhibition, it was clear that Europe has a group of street and conceptual artists making provocative and challenging works just at a time that the battle between street art and curated muralism has reached a critical mass.

We were trying to figure out the best way to kick off our coverage of Nuart 2014, as there has been a ton of progress in anticipation of the opening on September 6. Murals are getting finished, installations completed, but most importantly, we want to kick off by showing the epic 150m long supply ship that M-City painted... that has since been sent back out into the Norwegian seas.

Our good friends at Nuart are in Berlin at the moment, curating and organzing "Project M/3" with Urban Nation. As they do every year in Stavanger, Norway, Nuart will be bring together a roster of international, national and emerging names in Street Art, and for Berlin, they have brought together Martha Cooper COOPER (US), DotDotDot (NO), Ernest Zacharevic (LT), Varoius and Gould (DE), M-CITY (PL), Levalet (FR), Plotbot (DE), Martin Whatson (NO), Evol (DE), and BUFF DISS (AUS) for the festival.

We believe it has been confirmed: Polish artist M-City is the first person ever to paint a mural on the control tower of a major international airport. For Nuart 2013, the artist was commissioned by Stavanger Airport (SOLA) in Norway to paint the tower, so when flights come in and out of the airport, the first thing they see is the industrial style of one of the world's leading muralists. Considering Stavanger is a city known for major oil business, we think this is a major coup for Nuart.

Consciously working with the architectural shape of this particular building, Polish muralist, M-City’s newest mural complements and works with the structures dimensions brilliantly. Watch a time lapsed video of the murals process as it was painted in St.Ottilien, Germany.

Working with the slanted architectural shape of the building, M-City painted a large breaking wave carrying and swallowing multiple cityscapes. This particular mural was painted for the Artloop 2012 in Sopot, Poland.

Just the logistics of planning a mural of this size is impressive. This one in particular, painted by M-City for the See No Evil Festival in Bristol, Uk, is exceptionally narrow in width, but lengthy in height making for odd shaped mural. The Poland-based artist painted in his distinct stencil style look, incorporating a futuristic machinery landscape under construction, with a portion being submerged underwater. You can also see faintly in the background Connor Harrington’s addition to the building as well.

Polish muralist, Mariusz Waraz, aka M-City, just finished painting this giant broken tape mural in Jarocin, Poland. Waraz did an excellent job with the space, working around the windows and satellite dish. The drop shadow adds a nice feeling of depth as well.
