Nuart Aberdeen video captures the heart of international street art festival

Nuart Aberdeen returned to the city of Aberdeen from 8-11th June 2023.

A new video released captures the team of 13 artists who were handpicked to transform blank walls into stunning art pieces based on the theme of rewilding, with interviews, works in progress and the finished pieces across the city centre.

The video includes Chalk Don’t Chalk at Marischal College quadrangle, which saw hundreds of local school children and members of the public adding to a giant chalk mural on the ground.

Visitors and locals are also interviewed about their favourite artworks, alongside footage of the street art conference which ran alongside the festival.

Nuart Aberdeen ran from June 8-11 but for Aberdeen Inspired, the city centre BID which delivers the festival in partnership with Nuart Aberdeen, it leaves a permanent legacy.

Chief Executive Adrian Watson said: “This year’s Nuart Aberdeen was probably the most successful yet and the feedback was fantastic, both from the talented artists and street art community who came to Aberdeen to be part of this amazing festival, and from the people who have visited to experience the pieces for themselves.

“However, the real value Nuart Aberdeen brings is its ongoing legacy. While walking tours of the new and existing murals and artworks continue each weekend, the pieces are there permanently and can be enjoyed time and time again. There are now more than 40 Nuart Aberdeen pieces to be seen on our streets and these bring thousands of people to Aberdeen, adding significantly to the local economy.

“How lucky we are to have such world-class artwork brightening up our buildings and drawing tourists into the city centre as well as being a source of pride for local residents. The video perfectly captures Nuart Aberdeen 2023 and we hope everyone enjoys reliving those sunny days in June.”

This year’s locations included Frederick Street car park, the former police station on Queen Street, Rose Street, Skene Street and Thistle Lane.
