Tbilisi Mural Festival

Tbilisi Mural Festival

If you see a tastefully painted wall on the streets of Tbilisi, know that it might be by a worldwide acclaimed artist. ‘The Street Is Our Gallery’, was the slogan of the first street art festival, Tbilisi Mural Fest in 2019. No one thought that street art would complement Soviet architecture or be able to color the gray blocks of flats from that time.

What Does the Tbilisi Mural Festival Entail?

During the festival, various districts of Tbilisi and Kutaisi were painted with many different themes such as abstract, ecological, and social.

During its run, many acclaimed street artists participated including, Innerfields, Andreas von Chrzanowski, Aphe Noah, El Bocho, Matthias Mross, Artez, and Kera (Christian Hinz), from Germany; the Parisian group MonkeyBird; the Dutch artist JDL; the South African artist Faith47; and Dante, Giorgi Maskharashvili, Musya, Luka Japaridze, v45, Irakli Kadeishvili, Zviad Esartia and others from Georgia.

Many painted walls in Tbilisi are at the following addresses:

Dante, Georgia – 27A Ramishvili Street, Vake;

Andreas von Chrzanowski, Germany – 20 Griboyedov Street, Mtatsminda;

The Tbilisi Mural Festival was founded with the support of Berlin and Tbilisi city hall, so modern art could refine post-Soviet architecture.
