Last July I had the opportunity to travel to Rost, in Norway, to participate in Upnorth Festival. A fantastic week sharing experiences with artists in a spectacular environment with 24 hours of light.
The nature in its maximum splendor. A challenge to be able to integrate my sculptures out of the urban context without damaging the landscape.
Thanks to all the people involved in this project.

Within the activities of the week of street art for the Festival Points de Vue , organized by Spacejunk´s art centers, I have presented my itinerant exhibition called La comédie humaine which includes some of my artworks made since 2013.
La Comédie Humaine is a work in progress show that reflects on the side effects of the side effects of our stupidity. Artworks displayed are changing depending on the space. This time, the space, is an old army fortress that looks like a kind of bunker-chapel with thick stone walls, very interesting to play with the lights and very charm for its silence . The exhibition is made up of small installations, photographs and a large installation in the center of the space. The central installation is titled The School, an reflection on how education has become an industry where schools have become a business and students have become clients. The constant pursuit of profit has destroyed the values of knowledge by considering useless everything that is not productive. A factory is here converted into a large reading room, to illustrate that we live immersed in the industrialization of thought.
Thanks to Alban, Audrey, all volunteers, artist and everyone involved in the project.
A new, three-year public art project will see Nuart curate a series of artworks along the length of the Akerselva river. Spanish artist Isaac Cordal was first out of the traps, putting up a total of 21 miniature sculptures from Frysja in the north to Grønland in the south in July 2017.
The ambitious project will see the area adjacent to the river, which cuts through the centre of the city, become a venue for the world’s leading street artists. The Akerselva has historically been viewed as something of a socio-economic and racial dividing line between east and west – a line we’re interested in exploring.
This project aims to celebrate the diversity of the four neighborhoods through which the river flows – Nordre Aker, Sagene, Grünerløkka and Gamle Oslo – and invite the local community to rediscover the area through the creation of an ‘art trail’ that traverses boundaries, both real and imagined.
Nuart RAD forms the core of Oslo Municipality’s five-year action plan for street art, which promotes graffiti and street art as part of contemporary art in public spaces.
Os veciños // Last June I had the opportunity to work in a different scale during RexeneraFest in Carballo, Spain. It was a hard week but funny with all the gang, artist and friends.
Thanks to everyone involved. Specially to Sir Formoso, Sokran, Mou, Noel, Marcos Juncal, … how beautiful is our home land!
Nice greetings to all the artist of this edition.
Following a successful debut of Nuart Aberbeen first edition in Scotland locals have been very enthusiastic to say the least, and to quote the Press And Journal ‘ambitious plans are being drawn up to bring the Nuart street festival back to Aberdeen for the next three years- and expand it into the city’s suburbs‘.
Artists from across the globe came to the Granite City to transform walls across the city and we were excited to hear that Spanish Isaac Cordal was one of them.
Today we share our interview with this exceptional artist who with the act of miniaturisation and judicious placement, suddenly expands the imagination of pedestrians stumbling upon his sculptures on the streets. During our stay we could witness different reactions to his works. Carefully staged, his figures are placed in locations that can be very fiddly to notice but once you do they open doors to another dimension and meanings. Some might think his work can be depressing, in this interview Isaac delivers his sharp vision on today’s society with lots of humour and honesty.
We were pleased to be invited to this very first edition of Nuart Aberdeen and to be able to chat with Isaac about his latest residency and the current state of his sculptures.
