It’s that time of the year when we start getting really excited. Yes, It’s NuArt Festival time!
Some of the biggest names in the world of street art will descend on Stavanger, a city located on the west coast of Norway.

NuArt festival has been continuously  running since 2005 thanks to the hard work of NuArt’s founder and director Martyn Reed and his teams.
In the last couple of years we have seen an important development, the NuArt Plus series that comes as a nice addition to their always expanding program of exciting events, workshops, panel discussions and film screening.

Among some of the invited speakers we find Carlo McCormick, Peter Bengtsen, Evan Pricco, Natalie Hegert and RJ Rushmore, but also Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo of Brooklyn Street Art will be present at the event bringing their BSA Film Friday’s to NuArt Plus with a collection of graffiti inspired videos from around the globe. In addition to this the festival will offer the screening of the Os Gemeos film ‘Cidade Cinza’.

When it comes to the artists invited, NuArt will count with the participation of Andreco (IT), Borondo (ES), Dotdotdot (NO), Etam Cru (PL), Fra.Biancoshock (IT), Icy & Sot (IR), John Fekner (US), Leval (FR), M-City (PL), Martin Whatson (NO), Mathieu Tremblin (FR), SPY (ES), Strøk (NO), Tilt (FR) and ± Maismenos ± (PT).

M-City and Etan Cru are fully art work at this moment, so expect pictures soon. For now, watch this fantastic presentation of the festival.
