The grand opening of Komafest is scheduled for tomorrow, and the works have popped up everywhere in the town these last couple of days. Some heavy wind – not unbeknown for people from Vardø – has hit the island giving the artists difficult working conditions. But it’s coming along nicely.
This batch of pictures is of french guys Horfe and Ken Sortais work – huge colorful grafitti breathing real life into many run-down buildings, along with danish Husk Mit Navns several huge cartoons with a theme from the town. Vhils has created a nice portrait of an old fisherman from Vardø, located only a stone throw from his dock. Conor Harrington has also I’ve put a few of them up here, with more coming up.
