NUART Aberdeen has announced a line-up of award-winning street artists to participate in this year’s festival.
The event, which takes place next month, will feature street artists from Russia, Canada, Italy, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Iran, Argentina, Portugal and the UK with the theme based on “freedom”.
Martyn Reed, Nuart director, and curator, said: “With the concept of “Freedom” in mind, we’ve invited a much broader and more diverse group of artists from across the globe, artists from Russia, Iran, Canada, Spain, America, Portugal, Denmark, Italy as well as the UK will descend on the city to showcase the real breadth of street art practice.”
Nuart Aberdeen, which began in 2017, is curated and produced by the Stavanger based arts organisation Nuart and spearheaded by Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council.
Adrian Watson, Aberdeen Inspired chief executive, said: “Nuart Aberdeen captures the imagination of the public in a special way and alongside the Nuart team, we can’t wait to bring it back to the city in April.”
Nuart Aberdeen will take place from April 23 to 26.
