As one more year passed by, I found myself thinking about my happiest moments from 2016 and –undoubtedly- attending the legendary Nuart street art festival in Stavanger (Norway) was one of them. Apart from a couple of interviews (with Axel Void and Henrik Uldalen), I still haven’t told you anything about that amazing experience, although you might have seen my round-up of outdoor and indoor murals and my recap of Nuart Plus academic conferences on I Support Street Art, the website I was representing at the festival. So I guess it’s about time I shared what my favourite walls in Stavanger are, not just from last year’s edition of this independent festival, but since its very beginning back in 2001, when Martyn Reed founded one of the pioneering events dedicated to everything urban and public art, which –since then- has been breaking new ground in the street art scene worldwide.
While I travel and write about amazing street art from all around Europe, there is a lot going on in my hometown too. Honestly, I’ve never thought I couldn’t keep up with Rome’s street art scene, but that’s what happened during this spring, so I’m writing a blogpost collecting what’s new on the streets of Rome, including some older works that I still hadn’t review on this blog. At the end of the article, you will find a list of useful links to previous blogposts about Rome’s street art scene.
Enjoy the reading and the graffiti hunt!
