Mural Art: Breaking the Wall in Wroclaw

The Exhibition of Murals in the old city of Wroclaw is the fourth stage of the Breaking The Wall project. My first thought when I read the lineup of participating artists, including Blu, Erica Il Cane, SickBoy, Zosen, and others, was: That will be fuckin’ great!.

Their murals will reflect on the identity and existence of the post-1989 generation, as well as the celebrated anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Even though there was no concrete structure to pull down in Wroclaw’s history, it is clear that there will be lots of walls to get rid of in the future.

Just as the Berliners struggle with the demons of their history, the residents of Wroclaw, marked with their own tempestuous past, will have to face problems to solve as well. World War Two and the post-war times had a powerful impact on the mentality of its citizens. What was – and still is – the city we live in? For young people, Wroclaw is a blank sheet…

(press release)

The project will run until June, so there is enough time for the artists to create one or other fantastic mural artwork! Urban art photographer Just already visited the festival and took some really nice shots (for example the teaser-photo) of the ongoing creative process there! Take a look…
