BSA Special Feature: Lilith and Olaf at Nuart ’15 by Ella & Pitr
Straight from Nuart 2015 to you, a possibly world record breaking outdoor figurative mural! It could be the largest one ever!
Completed in Klepp, Rogaland, in only four days this week, French artists Ella & Pitr and an “army of volunteers” covered 21,000m2 on Block Berge Bygg’s roof with their original composition entitled Lilith and Olaf. For you non-Norwegians, King Olaf 1 ruled for the final five years of the first millenium. Olaf Tryggvason gets a comparatively small role in this mural – as if he is a toy dropped from Lilith’s hand as she slumbers here on the roof.
This project was completed so freshly that we only have this silent drone footage for you right now. We’re sure there will be a finished video of this in the future and actually BSA will be able to inspect this in person in a couple of days as we travel to Nuart 2015 so we’ll let you know just how big it is.
The mural will be officially ‘opened’ by the Mayor of Klepp, Ane Mari Braut Nese, next Friday at 4, which means we will still have time to bring her back to see our BSA FILM FRIDAY LIVE at the theater in downtown Stavanger. Hope you can come too!
Come Enjoy the Wonderful World of Dismaland!
If this doesn’t send the whole family running for the mini-van then you are not a true believer in the Magic Thingdom. See our review of this heavy-hitting satirical art installation just opened : The Wonderfully Dismal Kingdom of Banksy.

All you gotta do is check out this dude dancing while he works to appreciate how much he loves to paint and where the joy comes from.
Wall Therapy 2015: Handiedan
Handiedan was the first muralist this year, and one of the most eclectic. Her distinctive cut collages of currency and curvaceous beauties in her fine art is translated in wheatpaste across the facade of this Rochester former church.
