Streets: Nuart 2016 Murals (Part II)

The 16th edition of Nuart Festival brought some of the most popular street and urban artists to Stavanger, invited creatives that usually don’t work in public as well as few names that already participated in the festival years ago. Here is part II of our final recap (see part I here) of Nuart 2016 and the murals, public works and interventions created in the last couple of weeks.

Last month in Culver City, D*Face (interviewed) painted a new mural near the always busy 10 Freeway (seen best as you drive by the 10 freeway headed east passing Robertson Blvd) entitled Lovestruck.

From large-size murals to tiny interventions, we’re bringing you photos of some of the new public pieces created this year. Unlike other festivals, Nuart’s idea isn’t just creating the biggest and brightest murals possible. In the past 16 years, they’ve shown support to mural artists, but also, they also encouraged them to get […]
