SNIK (UK) - GONE BELIEVER

Street Art's answer to the Pre-Raphaelites Snik with a beautiful new piece for Nuart Festival 2018

UK Street Art duo Snik have kicked off this year’s Nuart Festival with a couple of incredible hand-cut stencil drawing on influences from British art movement the Pre-Raphaelites. The first piece, titled ‘Gone Believer’, is designed with the surrounding ivy in mind, which over time will grow back to create a living, breathing, organic artwork perfectly in tune with its surroundings.

The piece is the first of two walls in Stavanger by Snik, the second at Sola Airport, Stavanger's main airport in association with Avinor joins a growing list of works greeting guests flying into the city. It kicks off an intense period of production over the next twelve months for Snik that will see the pair paint all over the world, culminating in a self-produced solo exhibition in London in July 2019. “We want to develop our work further with every mural and every exhibition, and we are excited to present the next step in our evolution as contemporary artists at Nuart in Stavanger, one of Street Art’s most prestigious events” said Snik.

Martyn Reed, Nuart Festival Founder and Director said : “Over the years Snik have established themselves as one of the worlds most respected stencil artists, the absolute foundation of "Street Art" culture and in particular in Norway, where the form has a long history. Their reputation is built on producing over ten years’ worth of carefully hand-crafted and hand-cut works, testament to their genuine engagement with a craft and form that many have abandoned in favour of digital laser cutting. It's this absolute dedication to creating hand-crafted works that separate them from many that have attempted to follow in their footsteps.”
