Wonderwalls in Port Adelaide was an awesome 3 day street art festival held recently between January 23rd and 25th.
The event was presented by Renewal SA & The Hours, together with the City of Port Adelaide Enfield & Ironlak. Talented local, national & international street artists transformed the Port into an open air gallery with large scale murals, artist talks & entertainment.
The event drew good crowds throughout the long weekend, with visitors undertaking guided or self-guided tours of Port Adelaide’s streets & laneways to view the incredible works of art.
The originality & scale of some of the works were truly something to behold. The artists are to be commended for the high level of standard of their pieces.
This innovative event succeeded in promoting a positive image of an embedded art culture in Port Adelaide, reinvigorating the urban fabric & attracting much-needed crowds.
I will definitely be going again next time to walk the streets and discover more hidden treasures scattered around edgy Port Adelaide.
