GRAFFITI ARTISTS SLAY THE URBAN LANDSCAPE
There’s a surge of urban development running across the city, and with the metro growing a monotonous beard of condominiums and shopping centers, it’s hard not to notice the community calling out for some color.
Hoping to improve Cebu City’s image not only as a booming economic center but also as a place of culture and creativity; Create Cebu decided to start Cevolution, a public art exhibit that makes use of exterior urban spaces.
Together with Crossroads Cebu, Qube Gallery, and Island Premium Paints, the organization partnered with a select group of Cebuano artists to spice up the exteriors of Crossroads Cebu with eight different murals celebrating the diversity of the city’s art scene.
After the group launched the exhibit back in June, SunStar Weekend got to sit down with the Cevolution artists at Turning Wheels Cebu Brewery to have a little chat about their work and art in public spaces.
