In celebration of Brisbane’s Street Art Festival, TRYP Fortitude Valley Hotel– the city’s only street art hotel- is teaming up with over 4,600 budding artists and supporters to bring vibrant new works to the city. More than 50 artists will take part in the February 6-18 event, with 25 new works to be unveiled in suburbs including Red Hill, Newstead, Highgate Hill and Fortitude Valley.
Now decorated by acclaimed artists Beastman, Rone, Numskull and Fintan Magee, TRYP Fortitude Valley was originally an underground street art hub prior to joining the TRYP by Wyndham portfolio. Jessica Wulf, TRYP Fortitude Valley Sales and Marketing Executive, says “We believe this festival will benefit and beautify public places across Brisbane,” “Like the festival, we also want to strengthen street art culture in Brisbane and provide artists with a public platform to exhibit their work.”
A special event at Brisbane Rooftop bar, Up On Constance will mark the hallway point of the festival for those involved. The February 11 event will start at 7pm and “will give aspiring creatives a chance to meet the artists involved,” says Ms Wulf. BSAF Founder Lincoln Savage says he is pleased with the support the event has received from companies like TRYP by Wyndham. “Our festival is about giving people the confidence that, if they persist, they may be able to see their own work featured in the streets of Brisbane.” To see the full timetable for the Brisbane Street Art Festival, click here.
