Throughout this week, various Wide Open Walls 2014 pictures have been surfacing during our online browsing. Therefore, we found it quite fitting to go back and highlight some of the new murals that have been added to the landscape since the 2011 edition of the project…
Run, an Italian artist based in London, recently traveled through West Africa painting in The Gambia via Wide Open Walls and in Dakar, Senegal via the Yattal Art Association.
We asked him about his experience…
“The experience was amazing, I met loads of incredible people and they helped me with finding walls and speaking the local dialect.”
“I’m looking forward to go back and explore more, there are so many other parts of Africa that I would like to visit.”
“…there is not much of what we call ‘street art’…”
“It’s a reward for me and for my work to be there, it has been one of the biggest and deepest experiences of my life.”
