'HOME' BY IAN STRANGE x NUART

Two new advertising billboards have been installed by Nuart to act as platforms for public artworks. Ian Strange aka Kid Zoom (AU) is the first artist out.

From his New York base, Ian Strange travels throughout the world to explore the meaning of 'Home' in different cultures. Nuart welcomed Ian to Stavanger, Norway, for Nuart Festival 2017 where he produced numerous works both indoor and out - including several large-scale advertising takeovers.

The billboards are located at the corner of Dalabrekkå & Østre Ring in Storhaug and occupy a site previously reserved for commercial advertising. The self-funded installation is part of Nuart’s on-going ‘Art City’ initiative: an on-going initiative to positon the city as a world leader in both sanctioned and unsanctioned street and public art practice.
