NUART Upate: Ella & Pitr & Giant Return for a “Melt Down”

Taking their inventive humor from St Etienne back up north to Norway this month, the French duo Ella & Pitr found that the weather was not quite as warm and agreeable as last August when they completed the largest outdoor mural to celebrate Nuart’s 15th.

During this visit they made a trip to the beach in Sola to wheatpaste a few illustrations on massive weathered German bunkers from WWII. The pieces give a sense of the enormity of the space, as well as the humorous child-like imaginations of the adventurous couple as they continue marching across the globe.

Later when they returned back to Stavanger and during a two-day snow storm the intrepid duo squished one of their overfed giants uncomfortably into what would otherwise be regarded as a large canvas – a 4 story building. He appears to be hurt as well, not sure what happened. It could have been a tumble down the stairs. They call this piece “La fonte des glaces” (Melt down), and clearly he’s having one.

A local talented photographer Tor Ståle Moen spent a lot of time touring around with Ella & Pitr and he tells us that they are planning to return again in the summer. Our very special thanks to him for sharing these images with BSA readers.
