JAUNE’s Miniature Worker “Dudes”: Nuart 2016

Brussels based stencillist Jaune says he “proudly created with his hands, his heart and sometimes his head,” on his website and it looks like he has been using all three to place his little “dudes” in small hidden spots around Stavanger during the Nuart festival.

Lifting or pulling or digging or just standing around having conversations and checking texts, there is a camaraderie among the workers that is somehow reassuring. It’s a knowing brotherhood, a community of man. It is notable that there we haven’t seen any women in the mix – perhaps there is a women’s brigade somewhere else.

You’ll see here that Jaune is a humorist and encourages you to think of public space as a place for adventure in a way that you may not have considered since you were a kid. He talks about his installations in Stavanger on his Facebook page.

“This is an easy way to explain my creative process : I just have coloured pipes in my head that constantly throw out some mini dudes. Then it’s the duty of the technical operation manager (that you see at the bottom) to try to catch one.”
