Martyn Reed is sitting in his office overlooking the harbour in the Norwegian city of Stavanger.
He’s a long way from his Yorkshire roots and his home city of Leeds, but he has never felt more at home in this oil-rich rainy city of some 120,000 souls in the country’s third largest conurbation.
It’s not the likeliest location for someone who is art mad, but for the past 14 years Reed has been involved in, and has run, what is now known as the Nuart festival where the city is opened up to one of the biggest street art and music festivals in the world.
It seems no wall is off limits.
In the past the control tower at the airport has been hit and this year an oil tanker supply boat was painted by Polish artist M-City.
