FRESH CANVAS ART CO. PROUDLY PRESENTS:
RUST MAGIC STREET MURAL FESTIVAL

festival

Rocking walls all city is this years agenda for the first ever 'Rust Magic' Street Mural Festival. We have teamed up with the city as well as like-minded business owners whose high profile walls are waiting to come to life.

Expect to see new public art along Jasper Avenue, The Quarters, Whyte Avenue and into the French Quarters. 14 murals are waiting to explode with bold colour and style.

Our aim with 'Rust Magic' is to represent spray-paint culture at its finest by showcasing high quality pieces in high traffic areas but also to educate the public on the often misunderstood art form by holding public discussions and informative events.

Through this artistic campaign, our mission is to preserve the culture but to also give it a platform to have its own legitimate voice. We know that the world is a better place with art regardless of the process and we want Edmonton to be the beneficiary of a world renown mural scene which will be both inviting and progressive. 

Participating in the festival, we are honoured to be hosting internationally acclaimed artists and some of the best local and active painters in Edmonton. Covering all types of styles, the roster is thick with raw talent. We are confident that the genius of each piece will be fully realized in front of the public eye as each artist paints over the 4 days of the festival.

To coincide with all of the fresh artwork going up there will be exciting events you won't want to miss. The events will also give the public a chance to interact and engage with all of our artists.

With the utmost pleasure, Fresh Canvas is proud to present an artist talk by NYC graffiti legend Wane One.

For this very rare event, Wane takes us back to the "Old New York" with a slideshow and informative talk discussing the early days of style writing and the emergence of the subway graffiti movement. Viewed through his eyes, the evening will explore the origins of some of the classic styles of that time following the progression of the culture and finally it's impact and influence on todays street art scene that is now growing globally.

Following the slideshow there will be a short Q & A with the artist where the audience is encouraged to ask questions relevant to the topics at hand. This is a must attend for anyone interested in one of the worlds most nostalgic eras of graffiti and to hear stories first hand from someone like Wane who was heavily immersed in the underground art phenomenon that spread universal.

Please respect the wish our guest speaker. There will be no recording of any kind during the event. 

Seating is limited. Don't sleep - get your tickets early.
