Nuart Journal – Number 3


“Nuart Journal is a forum for critical commentary on urban art, defined as broadly as possible to include all aspects of both independently sanctioned and unsanctioned art in public space that does not fall under the general rubric of traditional public art practice. Nuart Journal includes traditional peer-reviewed academic papers as well as more experimental modes of research. It is a site for scholars, artists, curators and independent researchers to publish articles, conversations, reviews, projects, and opinion pieces on street art and related topics.”

The second 2019 issue of Nuart Journal was published in this years autumn. With No.3 the editors managed to give an update to the latest scientific texts and essays on graffiti and street-art. Just like the previous issues the contributions are separated into three thematic chapters: Original Articles, Visual/Experimental and Interviews/Talks/Books. Although once again a broad spectrum of topics is featured in the 3rd issue, we especially want to point out the “Dead Graffiti Writers Never Die, They Just Fade Away” essay by Tyson Mitman, “Roman Graffiti” study on subway trains in Rome as well as the interview on the editorial team of the highly recommended Boulevard Magazine.
