Kaunas street art festival NYKOKA

Street art is becoming an increasingly popular form of art, and the city of Kaunas in Lithuania has also discovered that professional street artists can work on dilapidated buildings. Wall paintings are an interesting way to make the streets livelier and bring art within everyone's reach. During the festival professional artists are creating large format drawings on the building walls, considering the life of the area and its community, issues and ideas. The educational part of the festival is teaching, inviting to the open discussions and helping to get acquainted with urban, architectural and street art topics. The experts of these fields wish to share their knowledge and also inspire city residents with good ideas and to speak about the problems, because while creating and changing public spaces the most important voice is of their visitors.
