On 6th of September, the Artplay Design Center in Moscow was the host to the opening of the Artmossphere Street Art Biennale. This is the first event like this in Russia, and it brings together over 30 artists from all over the world and over 40 Russian artists (like Kislow – seen above). Consisting of shows, lectures, workshops and round table talks, the participants are artists, organizers of street art events and gallery curators.

The exhibition includes an indoor portion, presenting work and installations by participating artists, as well as outdoor murals created especially for this event. These will be painted by Momo (USA), Sat One (Germany), Elian (Argentina), Hyuro (Spain), 2501 (Italy), Nicolas Barrome (France) and Erosie (Netherlands) while Spanish artist Okuda will introduce а 4-meter sculpture at Muzeon Art Park. In addition to the big art show, murals and public art objects, the show includes a retrospective of American photojournalist Martha Cooper (interviewed) devoted to the history of graffiti and street culture.
