12 September 2018 - The Second Street Art Festival in Herceg Novi will be held from September 13-15 and this year, the organizers have prepared mural paintings, workshops for children and presentations of one of the projects by Finnish artist Sini Kunnas.

The Second Street Art Festival will be held under the auspices of the Tourist Organization of Herceg Novi and the Municipality of Herceg Novi and organized by the Secretariat for Culture and Education. The main sponsor of the event is LLC “Novitović” from Baošići. The aim of the Street Art Festival is to improve public spaces and promote the city as a place of pleasant living, while simultaneously affirming contemporary forms of art, as emphasized by the Secretariat for Culture and Education of the Municipality of Herceg Novi.

According to the Art Festival’s program, the mural "Herceg" will embellish the wall on Dubrava, and it will be painted by the authors Mato Uljarević and Iva Marinović. Their solution was selected as the best in the competition announced by the Secretariat for Culture and Education.

The "Mural “Herceg” is deeply connected with the unique atmosphere of Herceg Novi, which transcends into the inner space of a human and is realized within a human, as the only being with the ability to resonate and seek the truth. A great part of the mural is composed out of clippings, random segments of the “Herceg Novi experience”: palm tree, mussels, Belavista, a sailor with a tobacco pipe, etc. Those elements are united as bearers of uniqueness, with the aim of showing the very essence of the city. The anthropomorphic figure which holds the bare essence and the spirit of the city – Herceg Novi”, stands in the explanation of the work, which is rated as the best artistic solution presented at the competition with the theme "The Harmony of Nature and People".

The first evening of the festival will feature the work of Finnish artist Sini Kunnas, on September 13 at the Belavista Square from 7 PM. On this occasion, Kunnas will present the Manhattan Street Art Poster project, funded by the Finnish organization #HCPSPIRIT.

During the festival, murals will also be painted on the walls of two schools and a kindergarten, so the youngest locals will also take part in the festival. The children from the Kindergarten "Naša radost", pupils of the “Orjenski Bataljon” Elementary School and the students of Secondary School "Ivan Goran Kovačič" will paint murals on the walls of these educational institutions. The event also includes workshops for children, through which art teacher Ksandra Popović will explain the concept of mural painting and help the children with the project.
