AT THE NUART FESTIVAL 2015

INGRIDESIGN_NUART stavanger

Last weekend I went to check out NUART with two of my fellow graphic design friends. It’s an annual independent international contemporary street & urban art festival located in Stavanger and it was the first time I have been able to go so I was very excited.

We went to see the indoor installation at Tou Scene, the perfect setting for this type of event. Tou Scene is a vast converted Victorian brewery, and the exhibition itself was located inside the old beer halls. It featured the works of 16 different international artists, a great mix of styles and emotions. As it was in these dark halls the lighting was not so iPhone friendly, but here are some of my snaps from the day.

If you want to see more photos from the exhibition just click through to the official website. And if you are in the area, it’s definitely worth a visit!

The NUART Festival is happening not just indoors, but all over Stavanger. Our original plan was to wander around and discover some of the amazing outdoor street art that has popped up but that had to be postponed because of quite heavy rain.. We did however have a quick little look at what was around Tou Scene itself while running to the nearest café for shelter.
