The romance between society and art is still alive. This time, Cheste in Valencia was the epicenter of an artistic-social earthquake that occurred this past May.
Within the framework of the Graffitea festival and over the duration of two intense days of work, neighbors, visitors and artists experienced the transformation of cement and bricks into enormous canvases. Schools, community buildings and private walls ceded by residents of the town were the chosen sites for free expression ranging from the most figurative to the most symbolic and dreamlike.
Over twenty artists such as the Spaniards SFHIR, Toren, Kram + Eledu and Nuriatoll, and Chek’os Art (Italy) and S. Waknine (UK) from abroad to name a few, decorated the town with a variety of styles that left a very good impression on this city in the Valencian community.
In conjunction with the murals, a series of activities were carried out, amongst which we’d like to highlight the artistic workshops for the little ones.
