Nuart Aberdeen to attract large crowds for festival opening

Large crowds are expected in Aberdeen this weekend for an award-winning international street art festival which has transformed walls across the city centre.


Nuart Aberdeen artists are applying the finishing touches to their works which organisers say will surprise and delight members of the public.


The festival, which is delivered by business organisation Aberdeen Inspired in partnership with Nuart Festival and Aberdeen City Council, is now in its second year.


It has once again seen a team of international, national and local artists develop their latest works on walls around the city centre. Festival artists from Argentina, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal and the UK have been working across the city centre throughout the week.


The theme for this year’s festival is ‘A Revolution of the Ordinary’ which will investigate the parallel world of non-institutional art and culture through an extensive program of artist talks and debates, film screenings, guided tours, workshops and satellite events.


Nuart Aberdeen’s public opening will be held at The Green at midday on Saturday, April 14. It will feature live music, performances and will people will have the chance to purchase exclusive Nuart Aberdeen merchandise.


On both Saturday and Sunday, 90-minute walking tours of the latest street art will be provided at 1pm and 2pm. Festival guides will take groups on a walk from Aberdeen city centre to the west end; taking in large-scale murals as well as the smaller, hidden artworks created at this year’s festival.



Saturday night rounds off with a very special live vocal and DJ set from Chicago House legend and one of the pioneers of club culture, Robert Owens, who will fly in to Aberdeen to headline Nuart Aberdeen’s Launch party. Owens will be ably supported by Aberdeen’s own champions of all things House, Rhythm.
