Wall's art

Graffiti tour in Stavanger.

Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s and continues to be applied to subsequent incarnations. Stencil graffiti, wheatpasted poster art or sticker art, and street installation or sculpture are common forms of modern street art. Video projection, yarn bombing and Lock On sculpture became popularized at the turn of the 21st century.

Most of the graffiti presented here is results of graffiti festivals. Some of them looks like a real state of arts.

Once a year, the biggest names in world street art descend upon the small, sleepy Norwegian city of Stavanger to spray paint its buildings, walls and pavements.

Most of them began their careers painting illegally – most, in fact, still do from time to time – but here, the locals don't phone the police or complain, they embrace it. Welcome to Nuart: the most exciting graffiti festival in the world, held in the most unlikely of locations. Nuart is an international contemporary street and urban art festival, held annually in Stavanger, Norway since 2001. It is widely considered the world's leading celebration of Street Art among its peers. Every year Nuart add more and more sharm to the city.
