M-city at Vitenfabrikken

Vitenfabrikken, Sandnes
From November 2013
Stencil mural in a technical museum, part of a new exhibition

Polish artist M-city just keeps on returning to Rogaland, on invitations both to Nuart streetart festival and to commissioned work in public buildings.

His artwork inside Rogaland Kunstmuseum (now Stavanger Kunstmuseum) is long gone since 2007, that is also the case of the mural at Skur 2, and the giant ship at Siriskjær is fading. But his commissioned wall inside the Petroleum Directorate at Ullandhaug should be still there. And all visitors to Stavanger arriving by plane may see the control tower painted by M-city this summer during Nuart. His freshest piece is inside Sandnes Science Museum. You would have to pay the entrance ticket to get in, but it will be worth it. And as a bonus you can enjoy all the fun of the museum.

The mural will be an integrated part of the museum's new permanent exhibition. The motive is inspired by the innovations from Sandnes, especially the DBS bikes, DBS as a prononciation of the rather pretentious but fitting name Den Beste Sykkel (The Best Bike).
