The South African artist NMI created a new mural for Art City, during the 2017 Nuart Festival, which has taken place in the city of Stavanger, Norway, since 2001.
Art City finds points of convergence between Street Art and the Smart City programs of the region: the intention is to develop the city as an international “center” and destiny for Street Art culture.
The mural portrays a feminine character that carries elements of culture and identity on her back, both from fictitious as well as natural worlds, referencing certain global migratory movements.
As an architect and artist, NMI likes to experiment with certain techniques. In this case he uses a chiaroscuro to highlight the colors of the art piece and the four level parking lot.
The last traveler was created with the help of local artist RH74 and urban art enthusiast Thomas Bolme. The mural is located on Jorenholmsgata 16, 4013, Stavanger, in front of a parking lot.
