COOL HUNTING

The Graffiti Art Project

Reminiscent of Wooster Collective's 11 Spring project in New York City last year, the Kelburm Castle in Scotland is the next building in line to be covered in street art.

Beginning on 10 May 2007 the Kelburn Castle (above) will experience a barrage of paint, paste and paper as top Brazilian street artists, including Os Gemeos (below right), Nina (below left) and Nunca work alongside Scottish talent to cover the south side of the castle in graffiti art. The artists will be living together for approximately one month, sharing ideas and ultimately producing a giant piece of collaborative art. Taken out of its urban context and applied to the historic walls of a rural Scottish Castle, the project is a new challenge to the public's understanding of street art that goes beyond the usual "high vs. low" debates.

Stay tuned by visiting The Graffiti Art Project for updates and more info.
