No Limit Street Art at the Library


Today is the first day of No Limit Street Art Borås here in Borås. This is a street art festival which invides artists from all over the world to create a large outdoor exhibit – right in the middle of the city. Several of the artists invited paint so-called murals, where the entire wall of a house becomes the artist’s canvas. One of the walls included in this year‘s edition of No Limit is one of the Library walls. The artist who is working on this wall is the Chinese artist DALeast. He is currently in the final stages of completing his work: A flying eagle.

And around the city other artists are working to complete their work. Some of the artists  invited David Zinn, Dulk, Logan Hicks and Joe Iurato. A full list of the artists and a map of the year as well as last year’s paintings are available on the No Limit Street Art Boras website.

For those who wish to learn more about street art, there are some books on the subject  here at the library, mostly e-books, but also some printed books. And if you are intrerested what’s written about graffiti and street art in the scientific journals, there’s quite many articles on this subject availible if you search in Summon.
