NuArt 2010

NuArt just left this on their blog which adds the background story:

Great close up of the Vhils piece. The portrait is a very well known image of a Norwegian fisherman from the turn of the century, turned out that the wall we were working on used to be a factory for packing sardines, Stavanger’s prime industry at the time.
The owner of the wall was shocked to find we had two Portuguese artists painting a Norwegian fisherman and proceeded to produce an old label from a Sardine can written in Portuguese. Apparently it used to be the factories main export country.
A happy coincidence or a very clever curatorial decision, we’ll let you decide.
