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.
