Västervik town had three big street art festivals 2019-2021. We went there for a couple of days to enjoy the beautiful town and its art. The weather was not the best, but good enough. Some works from the festivals collected here. In the header we have an Ollio/Curtis Hylton.
Ketones 6000 – Australia
Curtis Hylton – England
Telmomiel – Holland. This one was my favourite.

These are amazing
Glad to share – when I find some I think are skilled artists!
These are so beautiful! I see absolutely why the last is your favourite and I love it, but I think my own pick would be the one by Lula Goce or maybe the first of the two by Curtis Hylton. All excellent however!
Thank you, Sarah – skilled artists all over I think!
These murals are fascinating!!
Glad you like them – often the artist is very skilled, but I think I only go if I know the artist is!
It brightens up the area. Nice if you know the artist!
Splendid steet art !
Glad you enjoyed it too!
There are some pretty fine practitioners out there, aren’t there?
There are. We didn’t get to see it all because of my husband’s currant disability. Maybe another time!
Oh dear. So glad you managed to see such a variety despite everything.
How beautiful and fascinating ! Would have loved a few days there myself to get to better know an art form of which I am somewhat ignorant. Our southern city of Melbourne is rather well known for a number of alley-ways displaying similar works . . . and friends have sent photos of similar festivals on Mexico . . . but have also seen city landscapes rubbished by what has seemed wanton ugliness . Shall go do some homework – thanks !
You are right, Eha – street art can be so very ugly, and I only go to the big events where real artists have contributed. And those are real treats! I can never understand how they can manage the scale!
