2017 Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival
2017 Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival is New Zealand’s premier street art festival featuring award-winning New Zealand and international artists.
Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival
The Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival 2017 kicked off on Friday 20 October with a one of a kind mixed media collaboration and evening with the artists at the Taupo Museum. Festival artists had 10 minutes to contribute their design to an ‘Exquisite Corpse’, with five artworks auctioned off on the night.
From Saturday morning, visitors had the opportunity to watch artists at work as they created their large-scale street artworks in Taupo over the three days. You can pick up a walking map, chat to the artists, and discover the other pieces around the town centre created at prior festivals.
A strong female lineup was secured for the 7th annual Graffiato: Taupo Street Art Festival. Established artist Erin Forsyth, muralist Mica Still and type-designer Kelly Spencer are among the headline artists attending the festival in October. Find out more about the line-up here.
While festivals of this nature now feature around the country, the 120 or so pieces created over the years in Taupo, as part of the Graffiato festival, represents the widest ranging and most comprehensive survey of New Zealand artists working in this field.
