The urban art festival Frontier in Italy aims to be an important opportunity to show and underline how much the art of Writing and of Street Art have been so prominent and pioneering for the development of the contemporary international art scene, taking Bologna as an historical centre of production and observation. Recently, German 3D graffiti master DAIM finished a massive mural after eight days of work!
The mural, located near the City Hall building at Via Fioravanti, now shows several layers of three-dimensional stars and a some writing popping out of the wall. Dope work again!
Frontier festival will end in January 2013 with a critical and historical reflection on Writing and Street Art. An international symposium will be hosted at MAMBO (the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna). A bilingual book will be published by Damiani.
