SHINE St. Petersburg Street Art Mural Festival, Florida 2017

The SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival was created to illuminate the power of art in public spaces to revitalise areas, inspire dialogue and unite the community while cultivating new standards of artistic excellence and re­flecting St. Petersburg, Florida’s creative and vibrant spirit.

Bringing more than thirty-five new murals to our City of the Arts since its inception, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival returns for its third year October 5th – 14th, 2017, showcasing vibrant special events and inspiring public murals by a diverse group of artists from around the world.

Artists invited to this years mural festival included Axel Void & L.E.O.,Cryptic, Daniel “R5” Barojas, Herbert Scott Davis, Hueman, James Oleson, Joram Roukes, Jose Mertz, Jujmo, Lauren YS, Mikael B, Ricky Watts, Sentrock, Sam Young, Stephen Palladino, Suarezart, Thirst & Zulu Painter, Vitale Bros. and Yok & Sheryo.

Iryna Kanishcheva was invited to take photos of the murals for this years festival.

“The city has a great creative vibe and a very positive atmosphere. St. Petersburg has been considered one of the best cities of arts since 2010, and the SHINE mural festival strengthens this position for many future years. Besides SHINE’s official mural tours, people are biking around murals during all the festival dates. Many “outside the project” artists create and showcase something on the streets as well. Strangers observe the progress of murals and admire of finished walls, its a great time.” Iryna Kanishcheva
