Wonderwalls Festival - 20 street artists paint the walls of Wollongong

November 11, 2013

Wonderwalls Festival is a street art festival held in the underrated city of Wollongong featuring Australian and International street artists who fill the city's boring walls with colour over a three day exhibition.

The artists had to survive blazing heat one day and power through torrential rain the next thanks to Australia's moody weather but the end result was an impressive 15 walls painted that showcased the unique style of each artist. 

Wonderwalls was organised by the guys from The HoursVerb Syndicate and Ironlak. We're looking forward to an even bigger and better event next year. The appreciation for street art is growing in Australia and artists are recognised more and more for their talent, making you look twice at an alleyway of Newtown or a back of a building at Stanmore. 

One of our favourite murals was 'Nothing Lasts Forever' by Wonder Fresh, Numskull and Roachi (Wonder Fresh paints a splash across the wall while he gets drenched himself). We asked the artists whether the rain affected their painting but all thought Ironlak held up well and didn't run or drip.Nothing beats seeing an artist with their sketch pad, The Ironlak Family (left) fills Market Lane with a heap of amazing graffiti work. Two One and Jae Copp (right) collaborates on a massive grayscale piece with surreal characters and landscapes.
