Headed by a team of experienced professional artists, we can connect business owners and community groups to the international community of artists, helping with all aspects along the way such as logistics, promotions, funding and copyright negotiations. We are located in Milwaukee, USA, but we have local resources in almost every country in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The street art movement is a huge renaissance taking place on a global scale at the moment. Once relegated to the category of graffiti and vandalism, street art has grown and blossomed into one of the most significant forms of artistic expression in the world today. Cities from Brooklyn to Barcelona, from Melbourne to Miami, have entire districts dedicated to street art, and as a result, enjoy greater tourism revenue and broader appreciation as global, happening places to be.
Now smaller cities and towns are recognizing the value of street art in place-making, and are looking to offer their most beautiful (and sometimes, most blighted) destinations to the hands of artists, in order to create beautiful spaces for their communities to admire and appreciate. Our team has years of experience with street art projects, and knows how to get a large-scale project commissioned and executed in a timely, safe and professional manner.
