Gearing up for another massive round of street art events and installations, the annual Brisbane Street Art Festival is returning for 2022 with its largest program yet.
A hand-picked lineup of acclaimed street artists is set to descend upon our fair city from Saturday 7 to Sunday 22 May, bringing 50 live public murals, exhibitions and installations, a plethora of art events, and interactive all-ages workshops.
The artists hitting Brisbane's blank walls will hail from the USA, Spain, Russia, Thailand, Indonesia and New Zealand, joined by Australian and Indigenous Australian names such as local legend Sofles, Lisa King and Rachael Sarra.
In 2022, Superordinary Northshore will be the festival's central hub, hosting a myriad of the program’s art events and 12 mural activations. Other festival locations include Howard Smith Wharves, Queen Street Mall, RNA Showgrounds, The Valley Mall and South Bank.
Event highlights on the program include a launch party on Saturday 7 May, the Elements Collective Scribble Slam on Saturday 14 May and a Brisbane Street Art Festival x Felons Brewing Co. party on Friday 20 May, while workshops will include yarn bombing, sticker art and an aerosol masterclass.
Whether you're just a spectator or get hands-on, this BSAF is going to be huge—and you’re not gonna want to miss any of the sights. Get all the details plus the full program of supporting events here.
