Big art with a big impact in Aberdeen
Aberdeen has been transformed with a number of intricately designed murals - all created with the help of the humble cherry picker access platform.
The city has invited 11 internationally acclaimed street artists to contribute to Nuart, a festival "to stimulate debate about what art is, and more importantly, who it is for."
Originating in the Norwegian city of Stavanger, which is twinned with the north-east city, the Nuart Festival began in 2001 as a way of brightening areas with street art and regaining areas for the people.
The festival has been supported by business-led initiative Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, says: "Nuart Aberdeen is in-keeping with the change our city needs to go through and it has been amazing to observe the art taking shape this week.
"This city should see itself as pushing the boundaries and being at the fore. Seeing passers-by stop to take it all in, particularly Herakut's incredible mural at The Green, has been wonderful."
