Outside of what was a very bustling city center as parade after parade occurred, we set out with a plan to discover that Stavanger in Norway is a street art capital. We wandered in and out of, and around the 19th-century streets buildings and home to the people of Stavanger in search of these pieces that we had read about.

How to Find Street Art in Stavanger

We luckily had a street art Google map of Stavanger to work from, though its accuracy was a little out of wack, but it did help us in our quest, and despite getting lost we did get to see so much more of this very appealing city in Norway.

Much as we have our Wonderwalls Street Art Festival in Wollongong, where we live in Australia, Stavanger has their Nuart Festival. “Nuart hosts an annual festival for national and international artists who operate outside of the traditional art establishment”. We were excited to see a Fintan MaGee in Stavanger because he has also painted in our hometown.
