Brisbane Street Art Festival 2018 To Set To Brighten The City

The walls of Brisbane are about to get a lot more distinguished with the announcement of the 2018 Brisbane Street Art Festival.

Now in its third year, the festival is bracing for the biggest program yet with more than 50 local and international artists creating dynamic murals in South Brisbane, Spring Hill, Fortitude Valley, Paddington, Annerley and Brisbane’s CBD from late March to mid-April.

"The program signals Brisbane’s creative potential, we encourage all locals and visitors to come out during BSAF to see new artworks created before their eyes,” Festival Director Lincoln Savage said.

The event has a number of artists from all around the world geared up to beautify the city, including Colombian artist Gris One, London geometric specialist Rosie Wood, Mexican calligraphy specialist Said Dokins and a stack more.

"This year seven international artists are joining us for the festival, including six who have chosen to paint their first Australian work in Brisbane, which speaks volumes about our ability to attract great artists and the recognition the international community has for our burgeoning street art culture,” Savage said.

Australian artists such as Sofles, Gus Eagleton, Fuzeillear, Emmanuel Moore, The Brightsiders and many more will also contribute their work to the festival.

All the action will kick off on 1 April with a free launch party in Fortitude Vally with live music provided by The Gametes, FeelsClub, Desmond Cheese and YELLOWCATREDCAT and live mural painting by Brisbane locals Drapl and Treazy.
