The Last Summer Weekend of Mural Festivals

September 26, 2015 -

Daily Beat Staff

We gave one last cheers to summer last weekend. All around the country, teams of artists assembled their scissor lifts and spray paint cans. Preeped the walls with a base coat then slayed some epic murals. The walls never stood a chance...
Huge line ups of mural painters, brought from all over the world to crush walls. Events included, KaaBoo Del MarMurals in the MarketColorado Crush. Even Japan is getting in the mix with POW WOW // JAPAN and the secret mural project underway right now.
Keep in mind: All of the photos below were painted last weekend.

For those of you wondering, this wave of murals at festivals and all over your feed is part of a much larger movement. Contemporary Muralism. A movement that fuses the athleticism of commercial painting with the magic of studio art work. Incredibly painted images adorning a five story building.
 Generally speaking, when you stroll around your neighborhood, you see advertisements on billboards and businesses. How often do you see public art painted for the soul purpose of enjoyment? If you get to see beautiful murals on the daily, enjoy it because your community knows the value of public art.
 But what makes a mural? A mural is a stationary piece of visual art. A painting that interacts with the community, often large in scale. It becomes part of the community, a landmark. The walls are still yet the city bustles past, until next year, when the cycle begins again. Up next, fall festivals!
