HKWALLS 2023: EU Street Art Meets Hong Kong
Street Art emerged in Europe in the 1970s, and developed in the 80s and 90s with the Hip hop movement. As a collaboration between HKwalls and the European Union National Institutions for Culture (EUNIC), four amazing artists from Czech Republic, Germany, France, and Italy come together to each realise a wall during the festival. Showcasing their unique artistic styles, vibrant colours and sense of humour, the local community is invited to interact with the artists and to learn more about this art form.
Over the 9-day festival across Central and Sheung Wan, as well as Soho House, HKwalls will host dope workshops, guided tours and artists talks around town, with special highlights (Soho House) including an exhibition featuring past and present HKwalls artists, and a 90-minute HKwalls x Chivas presents: I Rise We Rise Art Battle between two teams of artists, in front of a live audience to wrap up the festival on the evening of 26 March.
