Upcoming: Nuart Aberdeen 2020

Longer days and warmer temperatures among other things mean that Nuart Aberdeen is about to take place once again in Scotland’s Granite City.

Recap: Void Project – “Homeless” Art Residency

Back in November, Void Projects organized their second Homeless art residency and group exhibition at artist Axel Void’s home in Miami. Roughly 15 artists from around the world were invited to stay in the house over a period of two weeks to eat, sleep, and create together.

Streets: Nuart 2019 (Part 1)

As we’ve arrived in Stavanger for the 19th edition of the Street Art phenomenon that is the Nuart Festival, we’re impressed with the amount of work that the participating artists have already put around town.

Working along this year’s theme given by the festival founder Martyn Reed, Brand […]
