Like it. Art – Street Art Festival in Russia

Like it. Art   Street Art Festival in Russia

With a line-up reading like the who-is-who of Europe’s urban mural artists – including DXTR, Nychos, Pixelpancho, Etam Cru, Arsek & Erase, ECB and many more – the probably biggest European street art festival Like it. Art, which took place in Kazan, the capital and largest city of the Russian Republic of Tatarstan, just finished. As promised a few days ago, I managed to get some impressions from there…

Like it. Art Festival

Large and medium scale graffiti appeared on the walls of around 40 objects across the city. The festival arranged under the project MadeInKazan also encompassed public master classes, lectures of the European artists, the best canvases exhibition, “Trash-truck hunting” night painting session and a graffiti contest.

The painted venues became immediately spectacular and even enjoyed the attention of the Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, who together with Kazan Mayor Ilsur Metshin visited one of the festival sites on 20th July 2012. Ilsur Metshin said that the street-art festival would be held in Kazan annually. (The Kazan Times)
