For those of us who have loved Adelaide’s ongoing transformation with incredible street art pieces appearing across the city in recent years, this bit of news is sure to get you excited.
Port Adelaide will once again become a giant, interactive canvas this April, with the hugely popular Wonderwalls Street Art Festival returning this year.
Local, national and international artists will transform the Port into an open air gallery with large scale murals, artist talks and entertainment during the free three-day festival from April 21 to 23.
In 2015, more than 20 artists including international street artists Sainer and Bezt of Etam Cru (Poland), Askew One and Elliot Francis Stewart (NZ) took part in the inaugural South Australian Wonderwalls festival.
The original artists involved transformed key sites – such as the Marine and Harbours building on St Vincent Street and Harts Mill – into vibrant art installations.
The Wonderwalls Festival brings together the best mural artists from around the world and is presented by Renewal SA together with City of Port Adelaide Enfield and art suppliers Ironlak and Taubmans.
This year’s line up of artists will include Telmo Miel (article’s featured image), Into, Natalia Rak, Amanda Lynn, Fats, Georgia Hill, Merda, Kab 101, Masika 126, Sam Songailo, Jake Logos, Claire Foxton, Elizabeth Close, Zedr & Fortrose.
Keep an eye out for the second announcement soon with a larger line-up and exhibition!
