For several years now, Graffiti fest Kumanovo has been a part of our community and something that both artists and the public have been looking forward to each year. And this year was no exception. Graffiti fest 2019 Kumanovo took place on April 13th under the motto “Eco Graffiti Fest for Stronger Urban Consciousness”. The festival is organized by a non-formal group of professors together with local artists. This year’s locations included the schoolyard of two elementary schools and the yard of the National Theater in Kumanovo.
Over the years, these locations have become neglected, but remain places where the younger generations spend their time. With that in mind, this year’s goal was to spruce up the hangouts in a creative way, with the help of local graffiti artists. The area covers around 450 square meters. Before the event itself, there was a contest for young artists to apply. More than 20 artists had shown interest. The artwork from the young artists shows graffiti text in combination with murals.
The event was also full of sports activities, such as street basketball which is closely related to street art, and there was hip hop music playing. Graffiti fest 2019 Kumanovo took over the neglected areas in the city and made them great again with amazing art.
