This Friday, May 7th, the fantastic “Concrete Playground” street art festival will start in Essen! Concrete Playground, that are different workshops, lectures and of course fabulous temporary exhibitions with a lot of the world’s greatest modern and classical street artists.
Regardless of being legal or illegal, Streetart meanwhile is part of the townscape of even smaller cities. Linked-up with other subcultures such as skateboarding, BMX and Hip Hop, Streetart has a large impact and a huge economic power that makes it ubiquitous for all kinds of media that deal with youth or culture.
This means that Streetart becomes less and less ’street’, its term is reduced to absurdity because much Streetart is produced by graphic designers on a computer with an apple attached on it. (Words from the Playgroud)
I hope Concrete Playground will be a fat urban art event! Send me some pics, if you’ll have some…
