Thirteen street artists from across the globe come together for art collision at live celebration of creativity in Budapest
Monday July 29, 2013
burn Yard™ Live saw the unveiling of creative projects from a year long program called burn Yard™. Aiming to bring a new creative energy to discarded, obsolete objects and make them beautiful again, the artists collaborated to transform the space with graffiti, street art murals and digital projections. Set against their backdrop of artistic collision, the event itself showcased contributions from some of the world’s leading artists and creatives including international DJ Avicii, Lotus F1® Team driver Kimi Räikkönen and street artist M-City.
The street artists, brought together from countries all around the world, were tasked with breathing life into the derelict market hall before a thousand-strong crowd descended on burn Yard™ Live. Throughout the venue, an array of stranded vehicles were brought back to life by Hungarian artist Bázis, Romanian duo Saddo + Aitch along with fellow Romanian Suflo. Two crumbling walls were transformed into feature walls by Sergey and Kirill from Russia’s Zuk Club as well as French artists 2Shy and Faker. World renowned guest artist duo Stylus lent their unique blend of street art and projection to the venue’s walls and the main stage, featuring a repurposed tram carriage, was designed by Dilk.
