Taking place from 21st until 30th of April, The City of Lights hosted a list of various events related to urban art and produced an impressive series of 12 new murals through the city.

The international festival included artists from such places as Greece, Germany, Italy, Colombia, Mexico and of course Morocco, who showed their skills on the facades and other structures in the city. The full list of participating artists include Fikos, Aryz, Daniele Nitti, Waone, David Rocha, Liqen, Low Bros, Gleo, Antonyo Marest, Saddo and Mohamed L’Ghacham.

About Sasha Bogojev

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
