In the upcoming few weeks, two murals will be created in Eindhoven by a few national and international amazing artists. Eindhoven goes Urban!
Every citizen of Eindhoven knows the ‘pink wall’ that connects the city centre with Strijp-S. This wall is located on the ‘PSV laan’ and screaming for a creative street art touch. This year PSV is going to take the first step. Studio Giftig, also known from our ‘The Sound of Strijp-S Wall’ is going to paint a 25mtr long mural which will introduce the new PSV outfit for season 2017 / 2018. The theme is PSV and the artists will combine photorealistic portrets with abstract forms. Studio Giftig will start on the 14th of June en it’s going to be finished around the 28th of June. In the past Step in the Arena organized the graffiti kidsbattle in the Philips Stadion and is proud that we may announce this mural as a side project of our main festival Step in the Arena (17 and 18 of june, Berenkuil) this year.
On top of the Berenkuil there’s is small abandoned house. Ever since the beginning of Step in the Arena we want to paint those walls. This year the municipality of Eindhoven contacted us and gave us permission. The house will be painted in Step in the Arena Style, because it’s so close to the Berenkuil. In other words on each wall another artists with total freedom to do what they do best. The line up is: Woodland (D), ZIME and Sektie (EHV-NL), SWET (DK) and Mister (EHV-NL)
