The streets of Stavanger are world famous every September during the Nuart festival. But otherwise there is not much happening in the streets. The murals by Pøbel and Østrem are slightly fading, and few other additions are made by local artists.
But lately some geometrical colorful motives have appeared, notifying that something is brewing. These are the works of the Apchi Team, based in Stavanger. Their public works have been of limited size so far, with the most remarkable on a lighthouse. But I am dreaming of some day seeing one of their elaborate works on large scale on a public wall.
On a visit to their studio I was thrilled to see what they are capable of doing when they have decent walls and plenty of time at hand. The guys are mixing symbols, pictograms and geometry in a unique style. Have a look:
