The first edition of the graffiti art festival GRAFF EXPRESS begins with the creative transformation of nearly 300 square meters of the subway connecting the bus station and the subway. Eight professional graffiti artists from Bulgaria worked on a mutual project, transforming their ideas into a join conceptual work, reflecting the context of the place: Sofia Central Station as a crossroads of people and cultures, Sofia as a hospitable European city with a thousand-year history, home of millions, and a tourist destination.
This is the Gate to Sofia and the very first place seen by tourists, guests and residents of our city, arriving in the capital or just chasing the subway. GRAFF EXPRESS swept away the gray feeling, and let modern murals transform this urban space, giving new life, beauty and meaning.
The second edition was organized independently by Citywise Foundation in 2022.
The First edition of GRAFF EXPRESS 2020 is funded by the Sofia Municipality, Program Europe 2020 in partnership with District Municipality Serdika.
