Platres Urban Art 2012 @ Platres (Troodos)


The center is preparing a series of events designed for 400 participating young people under 30. The festivities include music, dance program and wall painting (Graffiti), as well as other special shows, for example, fire show (dancing with fire).

Participants in the activities will be youth from the region, young people from school dance, and Cypriot universities, mainly from art department. Young people will speak, will create and compete in these types of arts.

The results from the event will be published via videos to local tv channels, in the web as well as in other foreign bodies that deal with this kind of art around the world.

Graffiti, the most controversial art form has become a complex and diverse visual culture with its own language, standards, categories and history. Now the traditional graffiti art has been contrived into attention-grabbing graphic clichs, to leave a lasting cultural mark. The creativity of the graffiti artists has expanded into many art forms, but the optical illusion is the most interesting part. Using the 3D art form, these artists play a trick on the mind using size, shapes, and lines.
