Fintan Magee. Nuart 2016

Posted on September 5, 2016

NUART-BSA-Banner-740-2016

For the ninth straight year, BSA brings Nuart to our readers – artists, academics, collectors, instructors, curators, fanboys /girls, photographers, organizers, all. Not sure who else has been covering this international Street-Art themed indoor/outdoor festival and forum as early and continuously as we have, but we’re happy to say that this Norwegian pocket of public art continues to hold its own among a suddenly bloated field of new festivals and events globally.

Melbournes’ Fintan Magee has just begun his 32 meter high double silos after the fierce rains dissuaded him for a couple of days. After carefully planning out the figure/s he’s gradually bringing them alive here in this coastal Norwegian town – a reminder of the maritime history of the people here, and the rising tides of our modern era.

Ironically an oil economy like Norway’s is implicated in the warming of the atmosphere, so Mr. Magee’s ongoing program of climate-change related murals around the world takes on a special resonance here.  Thanks to an unfailing respect for intellectual independence, Nuart has often featured work that is critical to the fossil fuel economy over the years. Stay tuned for a finished image of Fintan’s towers this week.
