The Nuart Aberdeen walking tours are a brilliant way to see Aberdeen, and the spectacular street art that adds a splash of colour to our cityscape.

The worldwide popularity of urban art has grown massively since the turn of the century and this is no small part due the Nuart Festival, held every year in Stavanger, Norway.

Since 2001 artists from around the world have adorned the city’s buildings with beautiful and diverse works that have garnered admirers from around the globe.

In 2017, Nuart spun off a new festival in Stavanger’s twin town of Aberdeen, Scotland and each April, artists are invited to the city to work on permanent legal sites which contrast stunningly against the city’s grey granite buildings. An opening weekend of celebrations, talks and events is seen by many as a kickstart to the summer months ahead.

Every Thursday at 6pm, and Saturday and Sunday at 1pm, whatever the weather, Nuart Aberdeen hold free tours of the city centre’s street art. They are fun, interesting and packed full of gossip about the creation of the artwork and the artists behind them. They last about 90 mins and if you haven’t already, you should get yourself, your friends and family along to one soon and discover Nuart Aberdeen!
