Aarhus Festival opens massive street art festival

Together with urban art gallery Galleri Grisk Aarhus Festival invites you to Aarhus Streetart Festival where some of the most renowned and exciting names from the street art environment will paint new murals live during the Festival.

During the 10-day span of the Festival a selected group of street artists will create two new pieces each at big empty walls in The City Park between City Hall and Concert Hall Aarhus. Audience can follow the process from idea to finished result and get up close and personal with the art form.

While it can be found all over the world street art is difficult to define as a genre and even within the environment itself there is disagreement about where the art form is headed. Aarhus Streetart Festival welcomes this debate and invites people to participate by learning more about the origins, developments and future scenarios of street art.

Local urban art galleri Galleri Grisk is a respected part of the street art environment and through their network it has been possible to invite exciting and innovative artists from all over the world to Aarhus to take part of this event which is one of Northern Europe’s biggest of its kind.
