Streets: Said Dokins & Fintan Magee // Nuart Festival (Stavanger)

We’ve recently written a lot about what was happening in Stavanger during the 18th edition of Nuart Festival, but we wanted to give you a heads up on the background of two of the arguably most impactful projects that took place.

Nuart ’18 / Streets: Snik

Two weeks before the official start of the 18th edition of world-renowned Nuart Festival in Stavanger, exciting news is already arriving from the Norwegian oil capital. Taking this year’s theme to heart, Space Is The Place, and the festival’s aim to encourage artists to  to get off the beaten track and work outside the framework of the festival, art duo Snik created two new pieces, one of which was painted in the arrivals hall of Stavanger airport. Known for their intricate, hand-cut stencil works, Snik has seriously […]
