Nuart Update * 5 Pieces Underway in Stavanger * Choe, Hicks, Stain, Swoon, Skewville

“From Humble Beginnings We Built Our Empire”

Okay, not to get carried away – and anyway there are a fair number of anti-empire peeps out there….The next phase of Nuart begins tonight and street artists from New York have started in earnest deep into the Norwegian night to bring the best of Brooklyn to the walls.  While Brooklynites are back home celebrating the long Labor Day weekend with backyard, rooftop and sidewalk barbecues, Brooklyn street artists have begun the hard labor of installing brand new works in the main exhibition space for the Nuart Opening Weekend coming next.

Skewville is unpacking the suitcases and rolling out the orange caution fence and milk crates.
