South African artist, Freddy Sam, is participating in this year’s Living Walls Conference, which started yesterday.
An example of Freddy Sam’s previous work:
Living Walls, The City Speaks, is an annual conference on street art and urbanism that began in August 2010 in the city of Atlanta. Along with changing the urban landscape, the Living Walls conference set out to highlight a number of problems facing the city. Living Walls did not just showcase art, but also built a platform for much-needed dialogue in the city.
The #LW2013 conference will feature 20 dynamic artists from around the world who will produce 20 murals across Atlanta.
The five-day conference is scheduled to capacity with film screenings, lectures, block parties, gallery exhibits and bike tours. All events are free and open to the public.
