As many of you know, I went up in April to Aberdeen for the Nuart Festival, this Street Art festival, started in Stavanger in Norway in 2001 and brought to Aberdeen in 2017, is designed to present the most interesting Street Art by some of the most acclaimed and progressive public art practitioners in the world.
The festival also hopes to inspire and encourage the rising talent of Aberdeen, I found that many of the support staff and volunteers at this years event were emergent talent, wishing to gain an insight into public art and they all had a great willingness to help the artists in many ways.
This was my first year so I had plenty of catching up to do, plus I discovered another project in the city which I found interesting. Painted Doors, launched in 2016 which saw local artists transform many of the city’s doorways into works of art.
During my many wanderings around this lovely city, I took many photographs of the Nuart Murals and of the Painted Doors, plus many pieces of art by local artists, they can be seen by clicking on the links below:
