Fourth edition of Urban Painting around the World in Monaco

7 July 2020 - 16h11

Finally the organizers decided to maintain this event in full agreement with the Monegasque authorities. However, it will not take place on the port but on the forecourt of the Oceanographic Museum.

In the context of the covid 19 crisis, the question arose as to whether the fourth edition of this artistic event would be held. This while almost all of the planned events are cancelled with very few exceptions, including those held at Fort Antoine. The UPAW will take place on Saturday July 18th from 2 to 8pm and on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th from 11am to 8pm. While new developments have been envisaged for this 2020 version, it will be due to the circumstances on the contrary rather reduced. Instead of 10 artists, there will be six from Italy, France and Switzerland, Monaco being represented by Mr One Teas. Several artists return: Dave Baranes and Dario Vella who had dazzled the public last year as well as the Swiss Jazi who was there for the first edition and had produced the octopus, the turtle, and the fish with the head wrapped in plastic. Two newcomers: one from France, Pheno and the other from Switzerland, Ashpe. The theme of this edition will be Free Mediterranean, in other words, a Mediterranean without plastic and pollution free.

Last year, the sale of the works raised 25,000 euros for the Prince Albert II Foundation. This year the auction will be silent by submitting its contact details, the best offer obviously extending. As always, the organizers count on the generosity of buyers to be able, after deduction of costs, to participate as widely as possible in the financing of a project by paying the proceeds to the Prince Albert II Foundation.
