Since the beginning of this century, the Nuart Festival has been a prominent and critical voice in the expansion and understanding of street art as not just an underground genre but a prevailing culture that demands the attention of academics and a new generation of artists. For years, the festival was at home in Stavanger, Norway, but now, Nuart will celebrate it's 4th year in Stavanger's sister city, Aberdeen, Scotland. Today, the festival's founder, Martyn Reed, has announced the line-up for the 2020 Nuart Aberdeen, featuring 11 international artists taking over the Granite City.
