The Russ Festival in Norway is a traditional annual celebration for high school students in their final semester before graduation. Each class uses a bus to travel around partying and completing various tasks over the 17 day period of the festival.
Over the years intense competition has developed among the students over who has the best looking bus. We were contacted by an ambitious group who wanted to use our skills with spraypaint to completely redecorate their ‘Russebuss’ with a Disney themed design. We hopped on a flight and set off to explore Norway and transform a Russebuss!
We arrived in Oslo and saw some sights before getting to work. It is an amazing city, snow everywhere and fantastic architecture. We even got the chance to make our mark at the local skatepark, with an impromptu paint session hosted by some local artists. Next it was down to work and committing the chosen design to the steel sides of the bus. We started with the princess side, painting 4 large characters with a fluffy pink background. Next it was on to the fun part – the baddie’s side! We painted a horde of villains with a scary background of evil castles and lightening bolts.
At the front of the bus the students requested that we spray a pink crown and the back sported a prince charming character. This was a really fun project and we loved painting the iconic characters on this Russebuss, even though they pushed our graffiti talents to the limit!
We love to travel with our art and work all over the world, if you have a project that needs the special touch of our graffiti artists then get in touch!
