September 2, 2013
Heads up to BSA readers that the annual trip up north to Stavanger Norway is about to begin and we’ll be providing you with exclusive shots and insights as the events progress in this coastal town eight hours south of Oslo. With a working title of “Invisible Cities” Nuart 2013 takes an inspiration from the author Italo Calvino, who likens city streets to the lines in your hand.
Here is a snappy video introducing this years events. Even as guests have been arriving over the weekend, some artists like ROA and David Choe have already begun their pieces.
Directed by Martyn Reed managed by Marte Jølbo and a coterie of dedicated organizers and people in the local arts community, Nuart evolves your expectations every year about what a Street Art festival can be, but a few things stand: outstanding placement, high quality work, stimulating conversations, and head-whopping beer.
This years lineup is their most international, including:
MARTHA COOPER (US), DAL EAST (CN), ROA (BE), M-CITY (PL), FAITH47 (ZA), HUSH (UK), VHILS (PT), ERNEST ZACHAREVIC (LT), C215 (FR), DOT DOT DOT (NO), DOTMASTER (UK), STRØK (NO), MARTIN WHATSON (NO), DAVID CHOE (US) AIKO (JP)

Space 27 Gallery and Pure Living present Permanence, an exhibition contrasting the ephemeral nature of street art with the permanence of collectible art.
Including a variety of artwork created by Montreal-based as well as Canadian and international street artists shaping our urban landscape, Permanence aims to show the transition of street art from its underground beginnings to mainstream.
The works presented are directly influenced by the artist’s involvement with the street art movement; one that uses the city as a medium of expression, combining a vast range of techniques and artistic influences. In Permanence, they are brought out of the urban landscape and into the fine art world.
