Route along 7 street paintings in the city center

International artists from World Street Painting will once again color the city center of Arnhem with 3D artworks. After several successful editions, World Street Painting is this year’s traditional guest in Arnhem, next to Apeldoorn and Rotterdam. As the official side event of the Women’s Volleyball World Cup, the artists will get the public moving with artworks on the theme of POWER.

World Street Painting is back in Arnhem this summer! With a rainy start we are now drawing the sun. Several artists from all over the world will create 3D Street Paintings on Arnhem squares until Saturday, July 9. On Sunday, July 10, the artworks will be ready and everyone can participate in the street paintings by posing and being photographed. The 3D Street Paintings can be seen 24 hours a day for free until October 31.

With a lot of energy, the baby cries out. This energy makes the balls fly into the air. Catch the ball, comfort the baby or give as much energy as the baby and bring the balls even further into the air.

World Street Painting is a festival where art is made live in front of you on the street. It focuses on the making process and the 3D artwork. Since 2014 Foundation World Street Painting organizes an annual festival in Arnhem and other cities around the world. Street Painting is an effective way to communicate a theme or art in the city to a wide audience in an accessible way. In 3D Street Painting, audiences can take a seat and be part of the illusion. Photography of people in different poses in the artworks provide interaction with the art form.
