For the first time since its inauguration, the Marrakech Biennale includes urban art as part of its integral programme. Eleven leading international and local street artists were invited to Morocco to participate in the 6th Edition of the Biennale as part of the MB6: Street Art parallel project.

A few days before the opening of the Biennale, artists Mad C (Germany), Dotmaster (UK), Giacomo RUN (Italy), Dag Insky (France), Kalamour (Morocco), Alexey Lucas (Russia), LX.ONE (France), Lucy McLauchlan (UK), Remi Rough (UK), Sickboy (UK) and Yesbee (UK) created several pieces around Marrakech including the rooftops of the souks in the Medina, Bahia Palace area, the walls around Gueliz, the new part of Marrakech and in the city of Essaouira.

The project also unveiled North Africa’s largest mural. Giacomo Bufarini RUN painted the 6400 square meter mural on the popular Moulay Hassan Square in Essouaira. The artwork depicts two figures communicating across borders, echoing Essaouira’s rich musical heritage.
