No Limit Street Art Borås

Borås

No Limit is an outdoor art event inviting artists from around the world to participate in turning public space into an outdoor exhibition. An outdoor gallery that is available all year round and is amplified during summer with guided tours.

Around town you will find different genres of street art, from small installations to murals about 25 meters high. The festival has been held for three years, 2014, 2015 and 2017.

 

Street Art

There is no question this will be a turning point for Sweden as a whole. For years now, the Street-Art culture has been making its way through Sweden with positive embrace growing from both the public and politicians. While the “Zero tolerance” law remains in most cities, the discussion of the murals and the positive change it provides has been a hot discussion for many. From television, to radio, to newspapers and blogs, everyone in Sweden is now talking about it.

 

A gigant outdoor gallery

Borås, with its history in opening its doors to art (from the International Sculpture Biennal of Borås to its extensive exhibitions at the Borås Museum of Modern Art) the city has now opened its walls to this mural culture. This art movement, which began with artists painting murals illegally, is now being embraced by the public and is letting artists turn local cities such as Borås into beautiful public spaces that are blanketed by artwork of artists worldwide.

 

No Limit - no sketches

Borås decided that the event must remain authentic to the spirit of this movement and therefor did not ask the artists for sketches in advance. Instead, it made sure to accommodate them by providing large walls as canvases for them to paint whatever the choose. This of course is a controversial issue as nobody knows what the artists will create.
