Here´s the map to the experience – No Limit Street Art

August 31, 2015By No Limit BoråsPressrelease

All walls and spots are now ready and paired with it´s artist. Borås once again transforms into a gigant outdoor gallery. Our map shows the walls, the spots and gives you information about all things happening during the festival.

– It feels really good to be able to release the map now. Though I´m involved in most things happening I´m totally amazed when I see all walls/spots that will be covered with beautiful street art. Last year we handed out about 7.000 maps during the festival, this year I think it´ll be more. Although many choose to go on a free guided tour the map has a central role for people to relive the paintings on their own, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.

The printed map is avaliable (from Tuesday 1st of September) at the Tourist office, Textile Fashion Center and information signs besides every spot/wall where the artists working.

– It has been a lot of speculations about which walls and spots that´ll be used for this years festival, and of course which artist who will be represented on the walls. All the guessing had been real fun and we´ve choosed to release one wall every other day and pair it with an artist the day after. It builds expectation and creates excitement. Best way to follow everything that happens during the festival is checking nolimitboras.com and all our social media channels on a regular basis, says Anders Kihl, digital media manager, No Limit.

It all begins now! – No Limit Street Art Borås

August 25, 2015By No Limit BoråsPressrelease

No Limit Street Art Borås is set to September 3-6th. Though the first artist already arrived and from August 30th artists arrive almost daily. From September 1st you can see work in progress on most spots and walls in Borås.

First arriving artist was Canadian Laurence Vallières and she made a fast start in the Orangery in central Borås, Sunday 23rd.

– I´m truly happy to finally meet all our artists in person and to judge from the response to our wall releases there´s a huge audience looking forward to see the participating artists work in progress and the final pieces. With faboulus artists bringing a wide spread of different styles of street art together with truly epic walls and spots I guess it could be nothing but a success this year, says curator Shai Dahan.

– Right now we´re preparing the walls around the city, finishing the last details about colours, lifts and all other stuff that runs the festival behind the scenes. It´s a lot of things that really isn´t visible in the end but is of high importance to make the artists stay in Borås a pleasent experience and in the end the best thinkable festival for the audience. It begins now and in a week most artists is in the middle of the creating process – so looking forward to that and to meet them all, says project manager, Stina Hallhagen.

International contemporary and public art photographer Henrik Haven is set to cover No Limit Borås

August 17, 2015By No Limit BoråsPressrelease

Henrik Haven, based in Copenhagen, Denmark is a very appreciated photographer specialized in documenting contemporary and public art both from gallery exhibitions, large scale public art projects and studio visits. His photos are published in the leading magazines, blogs and social networking sites all over the world. Now Henrik sets down in Borås during No Limit Street Art to cover and document the festival.

– Henrik has been an integral addition to No Limit just as much as each of our artists. His talent and expertise as a photographer is as unique as each of the participating artists and equally respected. While there is no doubt people from all over the world will see the murals completed here, it is really Henrik’s eye to capture it in the right way that can make the difference between seeing a mural and telling the story. We want people to see the entire feeling and timeline of our festival and he is surely the person to capture it in that way, says curator Shai Dahan.

– For now the paintings from No Limit will remain for several years to come, but that itself doesn´t give the opportunity for all to see them. A comprehensive documentation does that and therefor we´re very happy that Henrik will shoot for No Limit this year, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.

No Limit 2015 will offer everything from large scale murals, small wooden figurines and stencil art to chalk paint. The festival of 2014 got a lot of media coverage both in national and international online and printed media. No Limit Street Art Borås is now also part of Google Cultural Institute.

Brooklyn Street Art to cover No Limit Borås

August 12, 2015By No Limit BoråsPressrelease

Last year Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo of Brooklyn Street Art curiously followed Swedens new street art festival No Limit via online- and social media. They liked what they saw and posted a blog, ending up as an article in the online version of Huffington Post. This year they both will be following the festival on spot in Borås.

– It’s important to support a nascent art festival that shows such promise in the urban art community and it’s good to see the city supporting public art and making an investment in its cultural richness, says Harrington.

– We have seen Shai’s passion and dedication to giving artists opportunities and sparking conversations that otherwise wouldn’t happen. Mural festivals like No Limit promotes cultural exchange and make art available to a wider audience – in a way that more established art institutions typically can’t, says Rojo.

Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo are the Founders of the influential art blog BrooklynStreetArt.com. Proud New Yorkers, artists, and cultural workers for more than twenty-five years, both are experts on the evolving Street Art scene in New York as well as globally. With daily postings on Brooklyn Street Art (BSA), 175 articles on The Huffington Post, and close to one half a million followers on their social media network, the two have shown and discussed Street Art, graffiti, murals, and public art in more than 100 cities over the last few years.

No Limit 2015 will offer everything from large scale murals, small wooden figurines and stencil art to chalk paint. The festival of 2014 got a lot of media coverage both in national and international online and printed media. No Limit Street Art Borås is now also part of Google Cultural Institute.
