Subsidenze Street Art Festival, Ravenna, Italy 2016

Subsidenze Street art festival 2016 is back for it’s third year running. The festival is in the city of Ravenna in Italy. You can catch all the action in the marina district as it runs 1st September to 11th September 2016.

As a preview to the festival Subsidenze invited street artist Rustam QBic from Kazan, Russia in June. With his wildly surreal imagination, Qbic painted birds with luggage as they migrate for warmer climates, called “Immigration”.

The artists have already begin painting the walls in the docks neighbourhood specifically, Dzia, a Belgian street artist, who’s recognised for his stunning murals of animals, which he creates using his signature style made up of a whirling lines which capture not only the animals in their natural form but also their physique. Dzia paints three doves in blue, and it looks as if there is a fight for the females attention, with one dove pumped up as the other male looks on. Further up Dzia paints hens that are both looking at their next meal! Who will get the worm?
