A city centre art project in collaboration with a Crown Decorating Centre has broken new ground with its innovative use of paints.

The Nuart project in Aberdeen has seen five artworks created by street artists and brought to life with expert advice from the city’s Crown Decorating Centre.

The murals range from spectacular artwork covering the city’s central market building, by internationally renowned German art duo, Herekut to Australian Fintan Magee, who returned to his Scottish roots.

Eleven artists’ work feature on Nuart Aberdeen, brought to the city by business organisation Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council, and was supported by main sponsor Burness Paull LLP.

Alan Paterson, Manager at the Crown Decorating Centre on Clifton Road, Kittybrewster Shopping Centre explained: “The artists came into the store and showed us pictures of what they wanted to do and we were easily able to work out what was best for them and how much paint they would need. We have supplied hundreds of litres of paint, rollers, brushes and other essentials.”

The Sandtex Trade range has a wide variety of colours available, allowing the artists to take off-the-shelf colours and mix them to make the exact colour they wanted.
