Erupt Events : Graffiato
Friday 19, Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 October 2012
Graffiato – New Zealand’s premier street art festival featuring a collection of our best and most recognised street artists is back for Labour Weekend 2012!
These artists have exhibited and painted all over the world and with a number of naturalised kiwis amongst them, they brought a truly international flavour to Taupo.
It was the first time such a high calibre group of artists had been invited to work on a single project, with a focus firmly and foremost on the art. Over one weekend the work of these artists transformed the public spaces of Taupo, providing a great experience for both the artists to come together on a town-wide collaboration, and for the public to witness it all unfold right in front of them.
The 2012 event will unfold over Labour Weekend, and is based in Taupo. As a celebration of street art and graffiti, Graffiato presents a collection of New Zealand street art from some of the country’s best artists.
Dispelling the myth around those who paint public walls, you can see the artists for what they are; passionate and dedicated members of our communities who contribute freely their time and talent to beautify our public spaces.
Pick up a map from town, or download one (available later this month) and walk the streets - Make sure you take this opportunity to see art from some of New Zealand’s most talented street artists.
