ARTAQ PRESENTS 130 ARTISTS FROM 48 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES IN STREET & URBAN ART
The concept of Artaq is to enhance and represent the evolution of Street & Urban Art from artists all over the world. For three years Artaq has supported and encouraged emerging talent as well as artists who are already known. To celebrate the movement, Artaq has created the Artaq Awards, the Artaq Bookzine as well as festivals and exhibitions.
Born in the United States, Street & Urban Art continues to be practiced and explored throughout the world based on the necessary value to DARE. Dare to create images with pleasure and wonder. Dare to be recognized by the audacity of the unique forms and styles. 673 artists enrolled in 10 different categories and a shortlist of 153 artist was made with 24 winners and 25 honorable mentions.
Now is your chance to see the best! Artaq Paris will be held at the Espace Cardin, where they will present the winners of the 2012 Artaq Awards. This is no ordinary competition with first and last place, but instead is selected by a professional jury. Artaq doesn’t distribute « good points » to the artists, nor do they elect an artist of the year. The Artaq awards are about providing an overview of the evolution of Urban Arts in all its forms. So come and join we-Paris in discovering and appreciating the world of Street & Urban Art!
