Ella & Pitr / Aurora Borealis in Norway 2016-03-15

Ella & Pitr / Aurora Borealis in Norway

Norwegian photographer and ‘aurora chaser’ has captured an artwork by Ella & Pitr in stunning detail during a recent display of the Aurora Borealis phenomenon in Norway. The wheat pasted artwork is situated on a German-built World War II bunker and can been seen under a haze of coloured light at Ølbergstranden beach on the outskirts of Stavanger.

Ella & Pitr

Following the overwhelming success of Ella & Pitr’s collaboration with Nuart Festival in 2015, the much-loved French couple returned to Stavanger recently to leave their mark across the region once again.

The industrious duo painted the world’s largest outdoor mural in Klepp, Norway, as part of Nuart’s 15th Anniversary celebrations. In somewhat less hospitable conditions this time round, they ventured to nearby Ølbergstranden beach to wheatpaste two German bunkers built during World War II, captured beautifully under a recent aurora by local photographer and ‘aurora chaser’ Brian Tallman.

Despite being based in St Etienne, France, Ella & Pitr are fast becoming local favourites and already plan to return to Stavanger in mid-August to continue their Nordic love affair.
