STREET STROKES

GRAF­FITI ARTISTS SLAY THE UR­BAN LAND­SCAPE

Sun.Star Cebu Weekend - - Front Page -

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.
