The BLK River Festival 2010 will again present site-specific installations and a film series to represent a spectrum of artists challenging the notion of street art; exploring new modes of practice while bringing the art form to a wider public audience. This year, the focus will shift to Muralism & Experimental Visual Strategies, with the inclusion of large-scale mural paintings and site-specific installations. The festival will continue its dedication to film and video documentation of Street & Urban Art complimented by strategies in visual communication and interventions in public space.
Within the scope of the BLK River Festival 2010, the Italian BLU – one of the most famous street artist worldwide – just finished his colossal new mural (Untitled/it is obvious) at the Albener Hafen in Vienna. An idea he already wanted to realize for years – now he has found the appropriate wall in Vienna.
