Here is a final look at some of the street works, murals, and beer tunnel installations that help complete the story of Nuart 2013 and our week in Stavanger, Norway. Aiko, David Choe, ROA, Faith47, and Vhils all had standout pieces, but we loved seeing the works and meeting DALeast, Martin Whatson, Strok, Dot Dot Dot, Ernest Zacharevic, and all the artists who put work up all week...

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.
Street Art // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
We are still settling back in after a week in Stavanger, Norway for the 2013 edition of the Nuart Festival, and we have a few more street pieces that were completed to showcase. DALeast, Faith 47, and C215 all had works around town, with DAL and Faith having massive murals right in the heart of the city center, and C215 had both a mural and a bunch of little stencil gems littered about the town.

As we showed you yesterday, we have been in Stavanger, Norway this week for the Nuart Festival, and as you probably know by now, each year the artists complete murals and street pieces around the town. Here is a look at the first series of street pieces, from David Choe, Martin Whatson, Vhils, ROA, Strok, Hush, and Ernest Zacharevic. More to come...

This past week, we have been in Stavanger, Norway as over a dozen artists have been creating installations, murals, site-specifc paintings and street works throughout the town, prior to Nuart's public opening on Saturday, September 7.

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, 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. Watch a video after the jump!

Graffiti // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
Juxtapoz had the honor of flying halfway across the world with SABER this past month for Nuart in Stavanger, Norway, and we weren't sure what sort of installation piece he was gonig to create. Fresh off of SABER's skywriting project over Manhattan days earlier, the LA-based graffiti artist and activist remained in a political mood, and decided to not only create a classic SABER piece, but buff it at the opening in front of hundreds of people.

Another year, and another great leap forward for one of street arts now venerable festivals, Nuart. Held each year on the streets of Stavanger, Norway, with a roster of international artists creating public art in an idyllic west Norwegian town, this year also expanded the festival to not only include indoor installations, but a full academic focus on street art as a prevailing means of public art.
