Established in 2017, Nuart Aberdeen is an international public art festival created to present the most interesting and relevant Street Art of its time. It intends to activate, inspire and collaborate with an emergent local scene as well as encourage creative links and exchanges between local businesses, arts organizations, property owners, community centers, education institutions and members of the public across all ages and backgrounds.
You'll see colourful, creative and inspiring art whereever you go in Aberdeen city centre!
Here's what Vhils said about his incredible work of art:
At a time when so many questions are being raised worldwide in relation to identity, borders, unions, etc., I came across this image of John Londragan (left) taken in Spain during the civil war, where he was helping the fight against fascism. Alongside other Aberdonian dock workers, Londragan also helped Spanish seamen fight for better living and working conditions back in the 1930s. His story stands to symbolise that we are stronger when united, pushing for a better future for all. I wanted to make this old pic almost develop itself on an old wall in Aberdeen, allowing the past to resurface – reminding us that we should keep it in mind as it can tell us so much about the future. Thanks to my team, @nuartfestival team and Aberdeen for such a warm reception.
Across the car park on the wall of Christ Central, The Venue, you'll see one of the incredible pieces of art.
See the whole Nuart 2019 collection on a brilliant walking tour taking a route of approximately 1 mile, lasting around 90 minutes come rain or shine!
