Brisbane will welcome a plethora of acclaimed local, national and international street artists from around the globe this May, as the city opens its door to Australia’s biggest street art festival program – Brisbane Street Art Festival (BSAF). The free public art event has 46 commissioned artworks across Brisbane CBD and surrounding suburbs. From live music and panel talks, through to exhibitions and workshops – the program will have something on offer to suit every age group over the two-week period.
The city will be awash with colour by artists from countries including England, Spain, Nepal, China and Argentina alongside home-grown talents such as Leonie Rhodes, Leans and Sofles. The program reflects the diversity of the street art community with 27 prominent female street artists taking part, including Argentinean duo Medianeras and Colombian born Zurik who are helping to break gender disparity in street art.
The Brisbane Street Art Festival is a concept conceived by an innovative creative collective that intends to enhance the Brisbane community and inspire individuals through public art. The team at BSAF will be offering many unique spaces that present artists and creatives from many disciplines with an opportunity to showcase their work. By bringing art to the streets the Brisbane Street Art Festival will offer a chance for the Brisbane community to witness and engage with some of the city’s most talented artists.
