Nuart was a street art festival organised annually in Stavanger. The art ranges from situationism, graffiti, post-graffiti, muralism, comic culture, stencil art and activism amongst many other things.

International recognition for street art in Stavanger and the surrounding area

It is without a doubt the most exciting development in visual art for decades. A "movement" that has caught the imagination of the general public, collectors, auction houses and curators the world over. The artists who attended the festival are among the most acclaimed and progressive public art practitioners in the world. The artworks still make a huge visual impact on Stavanger and the region. New additions to the art scene are still added.
