A big street art festival is coming to Peterborough next month staged by City College.
The event featuring Korpfest x Battlelines will be held at the City College Brook Street Campus in Peterborough on Saturday July 2 from 10am-5pm. Local, national and international street artists will be creating art LIVE at this event to inspire the community into learning more and to showcase the beauty of street art.
It’s an exciting line-up that includes some of the region’s top street artists along with some national and even international heavyweights. From Peterborough we have viral superstar Nyces and the artist behind the NFT hit ‘Derpy Birbs’, Process. From Stamford there’s Paul Kneen hot off the back of his solo show at Peterborough Museum.
Nationally other artists include Roots from Birmingham who was a finalist in last year’s UK Illustration Championship. From Bristol it’s Sprite who combines a passion for animals with positive mental health messaging – Sprite works alongside street art heavyweight Snub23 who will also be painting.
Finally, there are two more big names at the Street Art Festival with Irony, whose spray paint portraits are incredible and Nol, who brings his bold illustrative style all the way from Holland.
A spokesman for City College said - “We truly believe this line up stays relevant by supporting our local artists while also delivering serious credibility with a strong group of some of the UK’s finest street artists.”
This event will also feature Battlelines - two artists battling head-to-head in a gruelling competition where one will be crowned the winner!
City College Peterborough will be hosting numerous free workshops and activities on the day including Decorate Your Own Trainers, Indian Cooking Experience, Digital Photoshop Workshop and more – to ensure you don’t miss out on these experiences, visit the City College Peterborough website or social media pages to secure your place.
