The penultimate artist announcement for Nuart 2016 includes 21st century master of mural painting, Axel
Void, urban interventionist Evol and Bergen-based street artist Nipper.
Axel Void has made his name as one of the finest exponents of classically-inspired murals whilst, at the
other end of the scale, German artist Evol is equally revered for transforming inauspicious electrical boxes
and street fixtures into miniature architectural models using intricately-cut, multi-layered stencils.
Nuart Festival is underpinned by the belief that art should be part of peoples everyday lives. In this same spirit, street artist Nipper will present an iteration of his Mission Directives project, which creates alternative zones of communication through the installation of temporary and interactive artworks in and around city centres. Some artworks are free for passers-by to take with them while others come with instructions for the finder to return the gesture by performing an artistic ‘action’ in public space. Visitors to the festival will be able to contribute to the project by making their own Mission Directives using materials provided and posting them at various locations around Stavanger.
By questioning who has the power and authority to communicate messages and create meaning in our shared spaces – and the public’s relationship to their urban environment – Mission Directives becomes part of a broader conversation of social significance.

You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
