Street artists from around the world traveled to Atlanta in August 2011 to take part in the second annual Living Walls Conference, which allows the legal painting and wheat-pasting of walls around the city.
Last year there was certainly a ‘buzz’ around the city for the first annual Living Walls Conference. Everyone was excited to see how this diverse group of international street artists would leave their mark on the city, as well as how the event, show and lectures tied it all together.
This year was no different.
The number of legal walls nearly doubled this year, which allowed more artists to participate. It took amazing talent to pull it all together, and everyone involved did an amazing job.
The conference brings together like minds, and it was interesting to discuss the issues surrounding street art and its place in our society.
Everyone involved was passionate about the role of street art and how it affects us in our every day lives.
Below are a few highlights from the conference.
