Relational art / street art
Komafest was not only about visiting artists, it was a lot about the town and the locals. Therefore is was pure logic to let locals contribute as well.
This mural was made by Vardø artist Roy Hardin, creating a portrait of the Vardø island in some wild, outworldish storm.
The public wall
All were invited to sign the public wall, situated on the public lot in the harbour. It is so enjoyable to see everybody from the kindergarden kids to grownups openly doing what other places would be considered as vandalism, writing their name on a wall!
