Last year, Norwegian artist Henrik Aa. Uldalen painted a huge mural on the wall of a building in Drammen as part of the Ugangprosjeket street art project.

A few days ago, Uldalen posted pictures of the mural wall being destroyed on his Instagram account, prompting fans to express their outrage.

But the artist always knew his work would be destroyed. In fact, he was counting on it.

    Interesting that the demolition seems to have deliberately started to remove the artwork before moving on to the rest of the wall. Perhaps, in keeping with the artist’s own comment about the fleeting nature of some art, this was also deliberate.
