The SAFEWALLS project is bringing the vintage circus poster into the 21st century by pairing up with cutting-edge street artists all over the world to create original art posters inspired by Cirque du Soleil shows.

For the London stop over, the artist line up is:
– Jon Burgerman
– Sweet Toof
– Glenn Anderson

Every month for a period of 12 months, a temporary SAFEWALLS exhibit will be held in a predetermined city where a Cirque du Soleil show is running. In each city, three artists will be commissioned to produce an original alternative poster inspired by the show. The exhibit will be cumulative, growing in size as new artworks are added to the collection. The exhibit will physically travel the world in art galleries where Cirque du Soleil has touring or resident shows. At each exhibit, very limited edition posters will be available for purchase.

You can have more information about the project as well as an exclusive preview of the artists artworks:
