Tasmazia Mural Fest 2012

Shared by |tags, ,

Organisers are hoping that this year's Tasmazia International Mural Fest 2012 will be bigger and better than ever.

Held annually in Sheffield – which is known as the Town of Murals – this truly unique art competition attracts worldwide attention and some of the country's best mural artists.

On show is the work of nine artists, who are each given just six days to create a mural that is 2,100mm high and 4,800mm wide.

The works are inspired by a poem – one is selected each year – which helps to get their creative juices flowing and ensure that no two artworks are the same.

Now in its 10th year, there have been some minor changes to the exhibition and along with the People's Choice Award, which attracts a $2,000 cash prize, and Visitors Award ($1,000) there is also the new addition of the Artists Choice Award ($2,000).

Entry to the outdoor gallery is free and the paint-off begins this Easter Week (April 8 to 14), however, winners are not announced till the final day of the competition.

You'll be able to enjoy passing time watching an artwork develop in front of your very own eyes, but remember to come early in order to cast your vote for the work that inspires you the most.
