A popular door-painting project is back in time for the launch of a new Aberdeen art festival next week.
The Painted Doors Project, spearheaded by Aberdeen Inspired, is a scheme which sees dilapidated doors rejuvenated to become outdoor artworks.
The initiative has kicked off for another year with local artist Gabi Reith currently working on a door beside the Indoor Market on Hadden Street.
Launched last year under the Summer of Art theme, the painted doors were created at locations including Langstane Place, Windmill Brae, The Green and Correction Wynd.
And now the project has returned in advance of the start of a street art festival which arrives in the city next weekend.
Acclaimed artists will use buildings and walls as their canvas to create vivid and thought-provoking artworks as part of the Nuart Festival.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “Our Painted Doors project really grabbed the attention of the public last year and we were delighted with its success.
“Now as we approach the start of Nuart Aberdeen, which we are hugely excited about, we are thrilled to confirm that Painted Doors will continue alongside the street art festival.
“It will be fantastic to see local and international artists working alongside each other and transforming our city centre in a wonderful way.
“We have a strong artist community in Aberdeen and we are pleased to be able to give them the opportunity to showcase their talent.
“Between the transformed doors and also the murals, installations, interventions and temporary exhibitions that will burst into life during Nuart Aberdeen, there will be a lot to see and enjoy in Aberdeen throughout April.”
The Nuart Festival has been held in Stavanger, Norway, since 2001 and is widely regarded as the world’s leading celebration of street art.
Street artists Fintan Magee, Nipper, Add Fuel, M-City, Alice Pasquini, Jaune and Isaac Cordal will all take part in the three-day festival which runs from April 14 to 16.
