Influential street artists from Poland and New Zealand will headline Wonderwalls, an interactive art festival that transforms Port Adelaide, South Australia, in to a giant canvas.
Artist duo Etam Cru from Poland as well as New Zealanders Askew One and Elliot Francis have been invited by Australian art collective The Hours to help renew the Port as part of their three day festival in January 2015.
Member for Port Adelaide Susan Close said the festival will bring a unique arts experience to the area.
“Wonderwalls is bringing the world's most highly acclaimed street artists to work alongside Adelaide's finest and we expect some of the murals to be the largest ever seen in Australia,” she said.
She said the festival will kick off with an official launch party at the recently upgraded Flour Shed at Hart's Mill.
“This will be the first opportunity for people to experience the impressive internal upgrades to the Flour Shed, which provides a unique facility at the Hart's Mill precinct,” Close said.
The Hours is jointly presenting Wonderwalls as part of RenewalSA's 'living port' project that aims to celebrate Port Adelaide's maritime past whilst embracing a forward thinking future.
Wonderwalls runs from January 23-25, 2015.
