A few days ago Nuart sent a pretty special press release presenting their world’s first curated series of Street Art Buses commissioned for the city Stavanger.
The first 8 buses, include works from national and internationally renowned artists Ernest Zacharevic (Lithuania), Add Fuel (Portugal), Martin Whatson (Norway) and Norway’s leading female street artist Hama Woods.
The regional bus company Kolumbus, which commissioned the works, has committed to a three year plan and will be introducing new buses and artists over the next three years.
Martin Whatson says: “It’s different, and as far as I know, it’s not been done before. Stavanger is Norway’s Street Art capital, so it fits perfectly into the city.”
Below a few images of the work done so far:
