The project GRAFFOPOST gives the opportunity to visual artists and contemporary muralists to show their vision of changing a space through a conceptual art project, fully consistent with the urban environment. The project covers the painting of substations in central urban areas and large districts of Sofia. That is why the name speaks for itself, representing in one word the collaboration of graphics, graffiti and substation.
With the seven realized editions of GRAFFOPOST together with our partners:
- we successfully ennobled 7 central Sofia districts through direct artistic intervention close to the people - a total of 600 square meters;
- we have contributed to the development of art in the urban environment at the local level;
- we assisted 8 independent artists in performing on their own;
- we drew the audience's attention to contemporary mural art and its affiliation in the city, which expanded the traditional audience and helped to enrich it culturally by communicating the author's concept in informal conversations with artists.
