Upfest 2015: Europe's largest street art and graffiti festival - Telegraph

In partnership and as a cultural exchange with Berlin’s Urban Nation (UN) this year, Wall\Therapy 2015 curated this selection of international and local street artists who bring doorways and mirrors for you to step through. We were glad to be there in person this year and relieved to see that this largely homespun venture continues to be strong and community-minded despite the very hard work that it requires to pull it off. In the face of a rapidly commercializing Street Art festival scene, not only is the grassroots rather refreshing, it is a bit surreal. Without doubt it is fantastic. Please head out to BrooklynStreetArt.com for a full article and photos of all the completed murals. Shown here is the work of NeverCrew’s #ChristianRebecchi and #PabloTogni @nevercrew Completing the list of participants at this year's edition of Wall Therapy are: @vexta #vexta @calangoss #edermuniz @onurpainting #onur @andreas_englund #andreasenglund @wes21_schwarzmaler #wes21 @bdub585 #brittanywilliams @masiori #natehodge @dazeworldnyc #daze @massive_master_matt #matthewroberts @joeguyart #joeguy @jeffsotoart #jeffsoto @maxxer242 #maxx242 @walltherapyny #walltherapy2015 @urbannationberlin #rochesternewyork @magrochester #streetart #urbanart #muralart
