ARTMOSSPHERE

ARTMOSSPHERE Union is one of the main promoter of support and development of street art in Russia, the creator and organizer of the homonymous biennale of street art that was first held in Moscow in 2014, second in 2016, and this year will continue to accustom Moscow’s audience with the cult representatives of the street art world — from August 2018 to December 2018. A continuation of the successful launch of the Biennale has become Russia’s first auction in support of street art organized in conjunction with RuArts Foundation. Exhibition # project64 and auction at VDNH provoked a wave of interest in collecting street art, and the grant for Russian street artists established within the framework of the biennale was an incentive to further work and a weighty support for new ideas of independent authors. Among other significant projects of the association, it is worth mentioning the Best City of the Earth (LGZ) — the festival of the Department of Culture of Moscow, whose organizational and curatorial support has been completely endorsed by ARTMOSSPHERE. The festival made it possible to decorate the facades of houses in different parts of Moscow with bright and high-quality murals by leading Russian and foreign artists.  In the summer season of 2016, ARTMOSSPHERE acted as the curator of the project WALL at the Center for Contemporary Art WINZAVOD in the direction of street art — every month the main wall of WINZAVOD was renewed with fresh layers of color thanks to the artists of the association. In the summer of 2018, together with the artist Misha Most, we set a world record: we created the largest mural in the world with an area of 10,800 m² — this is the largest pictorial image on the facade of a building on the planet, the authorship of which belongs to one artist.
