On behalf of NuArt Festival and Reedprojects Gallery we would like to invite you all to our next solo exhibition by Norway’s most leading female street-art artist Hama Woods (NO)

About

Hama Woods is a Norwegian stencil artist, based in Oslo. Breaking was a big part of her life before she developed an interest in street art. She cut her first stencils in 2009 and is the latest in a new generation of Norwegian artists who have chosen the stencil as their main medium.

Hama takes inspiration from popular culture, particularly in offering alternative views on mainstream opinion. Her focus is on the relations between people, and as she says, in generally “an attempt to understand what the fuck we are doing in the world”.

As she states “Her work demonstrates a reverence for nature and its immediate connection to humanity. In a search for methods to communicate the importance and revival of nature, Hama Woods stencils intuitively reflects and focuses on a sociological approach to greed and human consumption and its direct effect on our natural environment.

Her works are characterized by the use of hand cut, multi-layered stencils which are applied by spray paint and gradually taking root in public and private spaces in and around Oslo. Her hope is to empower and challenge viewers to come to their own conclusions and to rethink the choices they make which effect today and tomorrow.”
