Let’s go back to August to take a look at the annual pledge to street art that’s held in the Turkish capital. The Mural Istanbul Festival brought the artists, Chu (Buenos Aires), Ares, Tabone and Lakormis (Istanbul) to the facades of the city.
Due to the country’s political situation, this year many festivals decided to cancel their programs in Turkey. The Mural Istanbul Festival also had to face some inconveniences and, despite the misfortunes, the project went forward with the promise to bring color to a city where it was more necessary than ever.
For that reason, the scarce list of artists this year is still a huge success, filled with pride.
