A collective of “art pranksters” who featured in an Oscar-nominated film by Banksy is coming to Aberdeen.
Internationally acclaimed The Dotmasters will take part in Nuart Aberdeen, the popular street art festival that returns to the city next month.
The Dotmasters’ work has been seen in Tokyo, Norway and London, and examines populist media with a typical British sense of humour. The work has also featured in both Banksy’s Cans Festival as well as his award-winning documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.

Nuart’s curator said the three artists’ use of stencil make them a valuable addition to the 2019 line-up. Martyn Reed, who is also Nuart director, said: “It was seeing an early stencil of Banksy’s Laugh Now, a counterpoint to the regulated distribution of images, adverts and signs in public space, that triggered Nuart’s initial shift to Street Art in 2003. A lifelong obsession followed and these three artists have become an intrinsic part of that history.”
Last month it was announced that Jan Vormann is bringing his Dispatchwork project, which uses LEGO bricks to repair damaged walls and structures, to the festival, which runs from April 18 to 21.
