International Street Art Festival in Atlanta
This recent interview with Blacki and Monica of the Living Walls Conference on Juxtapoz is a blast. I'm super excited to be a participating artist and lecturer.
A component in the all-around amazing time I had in Atlanta last weekend, I talked to Blacki Li Rudi Migliozzi and Monica Campana about Living Walls, a scrappy, grassroots conference of street artists, culture jammers, filmmakers, flash lecturers and even a Georgia Tech architecture prof. It’s all officially happening August 13-15. Artists are coming from all over the world (many will be in town as early as August 7, making this a weeklong event!) to paint, wheatpaste and discuss their work in terms of “urbanism”—or understanding the city at the level of the city. In Monica’s words, it’s “street art summer camp,” and EVERYONE is invited to participate. If you’re in Atlanta, come one and all—everything’s free and open to the public (check their website for scheduling details…also head over to Eyedrum’s website). If you’re not in Atlanta and want to participate, send art! Send a poster. Someone WILL put it up for you. [More Here]
