Jaune and Axel Void on the Streets at Nuart 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.

Jaune and Axel Void are street practitioners of vastly different scale, yet both are on the streets of Stavanger right now putting up new work. Each have a way of engaging children with their work here, and probably the imaginations and memories of adults as well.

Jaune carries a miniature world that he recreates in many cities, and it invariably intersects with the sanitation workers who keep our daily existence so much cleaner. Adept at manipulating 2D and 3D scenarios using stencils, this small grouping of guys at the base of this building are only a small example of the much more expansive worlds he has created. Still you can image what kind of games this plays on the mind of your average 8 year old who discovers it.

Likewise your average Stavanger kid may be surprised to see a certain familiar boy on this big wall by Axel Void – a mural which has gone up rapidly over the last couple of days. Based on a portrait of Gabriel, the son of Nuart founder Martyn Reed, this image is an instant emblem of the city and quite appropriate considering its proximity to a nearby playground.
