Nuart 2014 • Part I

As we were recently telling you, Nuart 2014 international contemporary street and urban art festival has just begun in Stavanger, Norway.

They have so many interesting activities going on this year, and are including urban interventions for the first time in their program, from large-scale performances to subtle and surprising interventions, by artists SpY (ES), ±MAISMENO± (PT), Fra.Biancoshock (IT) and Mathieu Tremblin (FR).

Here are the first highlights, and a short behind the scenes of their upcoming indoor show.

After their mural for Memorie Urbane 2014Sainer and Bezt seem to continue with their child-like characters, this time focusing on the first day of school, also giving Nuart a great kick-off.
