The UPAW urban art performance is coming to the Principality on 15 and 16 July 2017, on the Quai Albert I - Port of Monaco, before exploring other international cities.
The pop-up UPAW artistic performance - Urban Painting Around the World – is the highlight of summer 2017 in Monaco. It is organized by WSM Events and the Wizart Agency, with the artistic collaboration of Willem Speerstra and supported by Monaco Tourist and Convention Authority and the Town hall of Monaco.
Each UPAW event takes a different artistic approach. The theme chosen for Monaco is "Protecting the Oceans."
The artists will depict their artistic world on the chosen theme, in aid of a charitable association.
Nine artists - ALEX KUZNETSOV for Russia, BLANCBEC for Belgium, ETNIK for Italy, JAZI for Switzerland, JOHNCRASH MATOS for the USA, MR. ONETEAS for Monaco, MIST for France, SOZYONE for Spain and STOHEAD for Germany – will have a three-panel wall at their disposal. They will therefore be able to create a large work as a triptych, or three smaller works. The paintings will be created with paints that are not harmful to Man or Nature.
When the paintings are completed, they will all form an open-air pop-up museum.
Afterwards, the Artcurial auction house will be responsible for presenting and selling the artists' work.
