Belgian stencil artist Jaune (Previously on Hookedblog). The artist was invited to Nuart Festival as part of a new collaboration with The Crystal ship festival (Previously on Hookedblog) which we also attended earlier this year in Oostende, Belgium and it was also where we discovered Jaune's stencil work for the first time.
We caught up with Jaune at Tou Scene, the venue for the Nuart Post Street Art exhibition and arranged to join him on one of his street missions in Stavanger. With plans in place we caught up with the artist the following day and took to the streets with local street art enthusiast Tor Ståle Moen who was kind enough to drive us across the city in search of a suitable location to install some work.
With a location found Juane selected a part of the wall that he felt would work with some of the stencil characters he had taken along with him and wasted no time getting to work on the wall, spraying layer by layer until the characters began to take shape. Local residents passing by stopped to talk, take photographs and watch as he installed his illegal work, no one questioning whether or not he had permission to install with most just assuming he was part of Nuart festival and all was good.
Following completion of the first piece the artist had spotted a second location where he wanted to install some work. The corner wall of this house close to Tou Scene had a comedy cock sprayed onto the wall and Jaune decided to add one of his sanitation worker stencil characters with a roller brush that perfectly fitted the wall. The building owner who had heard us outside her house stuck her head out the window to see what we were up to and was delighted with the new addition to her wall joining us outside to watch him complete the work.
Jaune's finished stencil piece perfectly placed and one happy home owner.
