Kenny Scharf moved to the big Apple in the late 70’s, the Golden Age that continued throughout the early 80’s, when creativity and art ruled the streets of NYC. Inspired by graffiti’s lack of boundaries and the possibility to connect directly with people, Kenny’s principle is to reach out beyond the elitists’ limits of fine art and create a direct dialogue with popular culture trough his art.

Born in San Sebastián, Spain, raised in Dusseldorf, Germany, and transplanted to the Bronx to become prominent members of the graffiti collective TATS CRU, their partnership has never waned. They continue to travel the world with major mural projects, as well as painting exhibitions.

This year's Nuart Plus program, a series of lectures, talks, and academic debates (okay, the debate is in a pub, and the academics get thrown out the window a few drinks in) have kicked off as the murals, street interventions, and installations are in progress at Nuart in Stavanger, Norway. The spirit of this year's academic portion, and the spirit of Nuart in general in 2014, is the battle of unsanctioned street art versus the ongoing, curated mural festivals popping up around the world.

Florentijn Hofman, the man behind the giant rubber ducky that toured harbors around thet world, is back with a an equally huge hippopotamus that he recently floated down the river Thames. At 21 meters-long, "Hippopothames" was towed up the river from the royal docks where it was built to the south bank where it will take part in 30 days worth of events along the river.

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.

Shepard and his team got it done in 3 days, and our new NYC photographer, Joe Russo, captured the process.
