Martin Whatson - Norwegian Street artist

Street Art and Graffiti art in Norway – Norwegian Street Artists you absolutely need to discover

The greatest surprises awaiting me in Norway was street art and graffiti! I didn’t know Norwegians loved urban art so much that larger than life murals and graffiti walls decorated different parts of Oslo, Stavanger, Bergen … Norway also hosts one of the biggest urban artfests in the world called The Nuart Stavanger.
Local art enthusiasts have turned the streets of cities such as Oslo, Bergen, … into a virtual art gallery.
I invite you to discover a group of amazingly creative artists from Norway.
Here are some pictures of the incredibly awesome artworks created by Norwegian street artists including links to their websites.
As always when i’m publishing a selection of local artists by country, the list is completely subjective and incomplete in many ways, therefore feel free to comment and propose artists not represented here. Thank you and enjoy!
