Street art life with the Bobos

Graffiti safari

Over the years the 7th district has developed to become a graffiti hotspot.  It is no longer just a question of colour on the wall.

    Calle Libre - Street Art

    Every year in August, Jakob Kattner organizes Calle Libre, Vienna's Street Art Festival. In 2016 live-paintings took place at different locations. An example of this can be found in the Sandwirtgasse 17. There, the Bavarian artist Mr. Woodland brought the work "Midnight Walk" to the wall and consumed 35 cans in 15 hours.

    Graffiti-Schmuck

    If you want to take home a piece of graffiti with you, then you are in good hands with the works of the Viennese jewellery artist Cornelia Voglmayer, aka Birdly. She sets the crumbled coloured layers of graffiti in rings, necklaces and earrings. You can find them mostly in pop-up stores (see www.birdly.at for current locations), but also in shops like Die Werkbank.

    Stinkfish Richard Waldemar-Park

    The artist Stinkfish from Colombia needed three days to apply his stencil art - a portrait of a father carrying his daughter on his shoulders - to a 20-metre high wall in the Richard Waldemar Park (1060).

    Art gallery Rabbit Eye Movement

    The artist Rabbit Eye Movement, known for his slightly crazy-looking hare, opened his own gallery in the 6th district, together with the local superstar Nychos. On Thursday and Friday afternoons, works by national and international artists are shown, merchandise is sold and artists are introduced.

    Jana + JS

    The Austrian-French artist couple Jana + JS has installed an autobiographical work here: a magnificent piece of work, four stories high, shows a bearded photographer and his fluttering polaroids (each two stories high). The artist couple was hired by the owner of the house vis-à-vis. who didn't like looking at the ugly façade.
