Basel House Mural Festival is a three-day, first-of-its-kind mural festival based around the legendary walls of the iconic RC Cola Plant in Miami’s Wynwood Art District during Miami Art Week 2017. Throughout the festival, local and international artists will transform an often-overlooked section of the neighborhood into an open air art museum.
Over the course of four days, there will be more than 50 mural projects and over 80 top street artists from across the globe painting large murals across six city blocks in the Wynwood Art District, including a digital arts and VR playground that will bring art to life. The free block party will offer live painting, unique art installations, live music, late-night DJs, artists, a vendor market and food trucks.
The massive new murals will encompass the largest, organized gathering of street artists including: Fanakapan (UK), Nuno Viegas(Portugal), RISK (Los Angeles), SEEN (NYC), Sonny (South Africa), Dourone (France), 123klan (Canada), Marcelo Ment (Brazil), Zed1 (Italy), Arlin (Brazil), Dodo Ose (Canada), Miles Toland (Santa Fe), Carolina Falkholt (Sweden) among others.
Starting on December 1st, people can catch a glimpse of these artists in action.
The curation of Basel House Mural Festival has been collaborative in nature; something rare in the art world, drawing on a cohort of global experts in the Urban Arts Scene. Major contributors include: Festival Creative Director, Stephanie Kassoy, SWARM Events & Nekto Collective Festival Art Director; Pedro Amos, artist & co-owner of Miami’s Best Graffiti Guides; Urban Nation Museum for Contemporary Art; WYN 317 Gallery; Iryna Kanishcheva, Urban Art Consultant and Photographer; and The Bushwick Collective.
