The graffiti will be drawn by artists who are participating in the “Best City in the World” festival. While applying, residents can influence the sketches if they specify which graffiti style is more suitable.

“Graffiti Aid” as well as “Best City in the World” will continue till the summer ends.

“SahArt” (Sahar stays for Sugar), another large scale project within the festival is going to be implemented in the area of Krasnopresnenskiy sugar factory. For the whole season old factory area will turn into laboratory of arts, creativity and subcultural expression for all interested people. One of the objectives of this festival is to explain and to deliver to the public that creativity should be encouraged, but only in appropriate places.

The factory area will host themed graffiti sessions, quest games and graffiti freestyle contests. “SahArt” area is a place where art school students have chance to demonstrate their graduation works, where famous business gurus can present their lectures together with successful startupers, who are changing urban environment.

Artists willing to contribute to street art development and to decorate old lifeless factory are already drawing their graffiti on the factory walls. In Facebook group all interested persons are welcome to share their ideas in the form of sketches or brief description of their creations together with references. “SahArt” doesn’t allow drawings on religion and politics, using profanities, painting any nude and mutilated images.
