In recent years, Aberdeen, a city best known for its granite and its oil industry, has turned into a bit of a creative hub. New and exciting events appear on the festival line-up every year creating an exciting buzz around the city centre. One of the most inspiring to take place this year is NUART which showcases street art from a variety of artists around some of the more 'tired' areas of the city. I finally got the chance to go out and see some of the art this weekend and was blown away. Compelling portraits, storytelling and splashes of colour on an otherwise grey veneer. Even more inspiring was the range of people taking a walkabout throughout the city to explore and appreciate these artworks. Showing that street art is one of the most accessible forms of artistry out there, this event appealed to a wide range of people across society. I'm excited to see this return to the city in future years.
