Belgian artist Jaune celebrates the "unsung heroes" who keep our cities moving. Stavanger, host to the world's leading Street Art Festival, Nuart, has commissioned a series of curated Street Art Buses with the latest artwork coming courtesy of Belgian mischief maker Jaune. Jaune is a stencil artist and urban interventionist whose work sees miniature, hi-vis wearing workers become the protagonists in various comical scenarios. For this project he transformed an 18m bus into a giant cardboard box with two contrasting scenes either side: order and chaos. As the public enter and exit the bus on one side they can see a relatively serene scene – on the other side the bus is depicted fully in motion, with the same characters clinging on for the ride! Collaboration between Nuart Festival and regional bus company Kolumbus Stavanger's Street Art buses are the result of a three-year collaboration between Nuart Festival and regional bus company Kolumbus that began in 2016. Other artists who have taken buses as their canvas include Ampparito (ES), M-city (PL), Add Fuel (PT), Ernest Zacharevic (LT), Martin Whatson and Hama Woods (NO). This project is made possible with the support of Rogaland fylkeskommune.
