Aberdeen has been recognised as one of the world’s best destinations for street art.

Thanks to annual street art festival Nuart, the Granite City has become one of the world’s top destinations for street art.

Alongside cities such as San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro and Sydney, the Financial Times ranked Aberdeen among the world’s top six locations for street art.

It’s thanks to Nuart Aberdeen, the city’s annual street art festival which first launched in 2017.

Organised by Aberdeen Inspired, in partnership with Aberdeen City Council, Nuart has attracted tens of thousands of visitors to the region, as well as dozens of internationally-acclaimed artists.

Bahia Shehab and Niels Shoe Meulman were among those taking part in the 2024 event, alongside returning talents such as Hera and KMG.

With more than 60 works now located around Aberdeen, from huge murals to playful figures hidden around the city, here are XX of the best Nuart Aberdeen murals from across the years.
