JAUNE’s Miniature Worker “Dudes”: Nuart 2016

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.”

Jaune and Axel Void on the Streets at Nuart 2016

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.

Amsterdam Dances with Graffuturism and Stencil Masters

Amsterdam Dances with Graffuturism and Stencil Masters

Amsterdam rocked the decks this month to celebrate urban contemporary art and street art in the Netherlands with visual and music based events giving artists many platforms to shine.

Graffuturism, a term and movement coined a handful of years ago to describe an intersection of graffiti, street art, and abstract geometry continues to stake out new territory and here were gallery and street exhibitions proffering some of the current practitioners whose work could be described as such.

The 5th Urban Art Festival Amsterdam featured their own collection of Graffuturists from Europe, the United States, and South America including Poesia, the unofficial founder of Graffuturism in a show of works on canvas, prints, drawings on paper, murals and site-specific abstract installations.

Running concurrently was a Stencil Masters show featuring some of the top knife-wielding artists known on the street today along with a few senior early proponents. The diverse program of gallery, street installations and DJs courtesy of the ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) helped further contextualize the art forms for a wider audience of fans.
