London is a treasure trove of art showcasing incredible masterpieces in its galleries and museums. London continues to impress us on its passion for arts with the first ever mural art festival by the Global Street Art Organization.
The London Mural Festival will feature a two-week programme of activities commencing on the 1st September. The festival aspires to use London as a vast canvas. A minimum of 20 new large-scale murals will be painted across the city. There will be talks, workshops, film screenings, gallery shows, street art tours - culminating with 100+ artists’ paintings. There are also plans on a weekend of activity at Here East and Hackney Wick in East London alongside live music, DJ’s and a series of parties. The weekend will celebrate creative communities across the city, whilst introducing a new way for people to experience one of the world’s biggest art movements.
The festival will showcase art from a wide variety of local, national and international talent. Confirmed artists include Ben Eine, Camille Walala, Dale Grimshaw, Fanakapan, Gary Stranger, Mr. Doodle, Mr. Cenz, Pref and Seb Lester. A huge pool of host of artists will be announced over the coming months.
The CEO of London & Partners Laura Citron says, “Culture and the arts are synonymous with London and it’s the number one reason that visitors come here. The London Mural Festival is a fantastic innovative addition to our cultural landscape and really puts London in the spotlight as a dynamic and creative city.”
The elated team of London Mural Festival calls for artists and volunteers (UK/ London volunteers only) for the event. Artists can apply once as a solo artist and once as part of a crew. They have also asked for walls or hoarding spaces that one believes would be suitable for the festival.
