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.
The last couple of weeks a street art festival called Komafest has taken place in my hometown Vardø, Norway. The norwegian artist Pøbel is the curator of the festival, having gathered eleven other highly regarded street artists from all over the world; Brazil, USA, Portugal, England, Belgium, France, Ireland and Norway.
