Waterford Walls Street Art Festival Celebrates Its Eighth Year

Waterford Walls Street Art Festival Celebrates Its Eighth Year

Because 2014, Waterford Walls, Ireland’s major road art festival, has been reworking and regenerating urban spaces in Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city, while inspiring and connecting communities. Earlier this month, Waterford Walls held its eighth road artwork competition with above 28 nationwide and worldwide artists making big murals across Waterford Metropolis and the surrounding places.

The enchanting mural featured above was painted by the London-based French avenue artist Zabou with the Dublin-based French illustrator and muralist Juliette Viode. They are equally captured here — posing with the local boy depicted in the mural — by travel and avenue photographer Karin du Maire aka Street Art Nomad.  Many additional photos from the the latest Waterford Partitions adhere to:
