2010 EDITION

2010 was year Zero.

Over 40 national and international artists met up in Turin for the first edition of the PicTurin - Turin Mural Art Festival, one of the main events within the “2010: European Youth Capital” schedule, and among the most important international graffiti art events. 
The city of suburban streets was hit by a wave of color and artwork on walls, for a total of 3,500 square meters of painted surfaces. 
The event was funded by the Ministry of Youth and Coordinated by: MurArte (a Youth Policies project), the Contrada Torino Onlus Foundation, and associations for urban creativity (ACU) which work on this territory ("The Circle and the Drops"). , "Monkeys Evolution" and "Style Orange") in cooperation with "INWARD" (International Network on Writing Art Research and Development).

PICTURIN FESTIVAL will be a container for a series of initiatives on urban art scene and underground culture: artistic happenings (exhibitions, conferences, music, etc.) sprouting from the lively and active local cultural movements to create relaxing moments for artists and public to mix in. Turin has always represented a reference point for culture, art and creativity. The deepest structure has found vital lifeblood in the continuous and constant commitment to experiment and share new experiences and projects. An openness repeatedly confirmed throughout novel and confrontation.
The event is financed by the Ministry of Youth, and planned and coordinated by: Murarte (at Youth Policies Department project), the Contrada Torino Onlus Foundation, and the urban creativity associations (ACU's) operating on the territory ("Artifacts", "Il Cerchio e Le Gocce ”and“ Style Orange ”) in partnership with the international urban creativity observatory“ INWARD ”(International Network on Writing Art Research and Development).

PicTurin Festival 2010

By Dewi Juliana, 02 Nov 2010 | designtaxi.com/

 

Artists from around Europe gathered in the Italian city of Turin for the inaugural PicTurin festival held through October, the first international event celebrating mural art. 

Armed with spray cans, paint and stencils, artists like Erica il Cane, Truly Design, Roa, Sagua, Grito, Spok, Morcky, Cactus & Maria, ZEDZ and XTRM got into action as soon as they arrived, tagging parts of the city with their brand of street art. 

According to Riccardo Lanfranco, the Chief of Association Il Cerchio E Le Gocce, the festival worked closely with the government. With that support, and the fact that Turin is also this year’s European Youth Capital, the artists were given the opportunity to brighten and liven up the city. 

Meeting with the Artists 

The first meet with the artists—Aryz, Grito, Sagua, Spok and Roa—was great. They were given a set of simple questions and, given their occupation, their answers had to be handwritten. The icebreaker session turned out to be quite fun. 

When asked what was the best part of the festival, both Belgian artist Roa and his Austrian counterpart Nychos said it was the great lineup of the artists that attended (and left their literal mark) on the festival. 

The Murals 

From downtown to the suburbs, the city was flourished with beautiful mural art. Each artist spent about a week on their designated wall; and onlookers were in for a treat by just observing these artists at work. A total of over 3,500 square meters of wall were painted legally

The future of the PicTurin 

It’s only been its first go, so what lies ahead of PicTurin is still unpredictable. Things are looking bright as the crew went about tagging and promoting their art—and the art form itself—around the city. Hopefully, the festival will be exported to other cities in time to come.

TORINO 2012

Over 30 artists from France, Holland, Bulgaria, Spain and Italy will be coloring city landmarks – Parco Dora, Amedeo di Savoia Hospital, Hiroshima Mon Amour, schools and façades – and turning Torino into a big outdoor museum.



PICTURIN - Torino Mural Art Festival 2012 - PARCO DORA WALL

June 15 will be the starting date for the third edition of PICTURIN – Torino Mural Art Festival, one of the main European street art and graffiti writing events which features several notorious international and emerging local artists in action.

Amongst the leading roles of this edition: Zoer & Velvet (CSX crew – France), Erase & Arsek (Bulgaria), Graphic Surgery (Holland), Bue The Warrior and Chase (Belgium), Escif (Spain) and, amongst the Italians, 2051, Galo, Thoms, Verbo, CT, Pixel Pancho, Zork, Spek, Truly Design, ADC, KNZ, SMK e TOTS  crew.

The third chapter starts from Parco Dora – the heart of the large scale Spina3 area transformation – extending further the bond between PicTurin and Torino, contributing to a Glocal renewal of the city.

The park – built on a vast area once occupied by big factories and representing one of the city’s biggest “green lungs” – is unique in its genre, thanks to the integration between natural habitats and the remnants of an industrial past. In fact, some parts of the old warehouses and factories have been excluded from the large scale demolition which has taken place in the past years. An example of preexisting structures are the large roof of the ex Vitali steelworks supported by its red steel pillars, the towers and the large basins turned into aquatic gardens.

37 artists from 7 countries and the aim of coloring the city representative, turning Turin into a huge, open-air museum.

PICTURIN

- organized by the Associations for Urban Creativity (ACU) which work on our territory ( "The Circle and the Drops", "Monkeys Evolution" and "Style Orange" ), MurArte and the Youth Politics Service of the City of Turin - was financed by the Department of Youth through the Local Youth Plan and included in the city's most recent events.

PicTurin is proving to be the main street art event in Italy, and one of the most important internationally. 
This edition's key players were: the Belgian duo Bue the Warrior and Chase , Argentinian Rojo Rome , Augustine Kofie from the US, Graphic Surgery Dutch crew Zoer and Velvet (CSX crew) from France, Arsek and Erase from Bulgaria, and Italian artists 2501 , Verb, SMK crew, Overspin crew, Demo, TOTS crew, Krio, Truly Design, Vesod, KNZ clan, Galo, Mr Thoms, MrFijodor, and Corn79. 

The locations:

The Walls of the Indigest area were taken by Overspin crew, SMK crew, TOTS crew, Vesod, KNZ clan, Truly Design, Krio, ADCcrew, Zoer and Velvet (CSX crew), Erase and Arsek. 

On the Towers behind the ex factory hangar thepaintings by 2501, Graphic Surgery, and Verb stand out in height. 
Amedeo di Savoia Hospital. In July, the façade of one of the wings was painted by Spek and Zork. Later on, during summer break, an additional out-of-program guest, Argentinian Rojo Rome, decorated a wall in via Passo Buole.

TORINO 2013

PicTurin 2013: the street art and graffiti festival leaves its mark on the walls of Turin

Tuesday 15 January 2013 | Murals and graffiti for the redevelopment of the urban fabric and peripheral degradation . It is not a paradox, but a bet won this year by the city of Turin . Now in its third edition, PicTurin has become one of the main European street art and graffiti writing events.

Murals and graffiti for the redevelopment of the urban fabric and peripheral degradation . It is not a paradox, but a bet won this year by the city of Turin . Now in its third edition, PicTurinhas become one of the main European street art and graffiti writing events .

This is an initiative organized by the Associations for Urban Creativity (Acu) operating in the area: Il Cerchio and Gocce , Monkeys Evolution and Style Orange , in collaboration with the Youth Policies service and the Contemporary Arts service of the City of Turin.

The project was officially born in 1999 with the name of MurArte in response to the town's need to contain the clandestine development of the masonry art , bringing out the creative potential. In 2010, on the occasion of Torino Youth Capital , it became a real international festival .

This year's challenge is summarized in the motto Your City Your Museum : 37 artists from Belgium, Argentina, the United States of America, Holland, France and Bulgaria have colored some of the city's most symbolic places since June, creating the feeling of an open-air museum .

The main location of the event is Parco Dora , an emblematic place, symbol of post-industrial reconstruction: theIndgest wallsand the symbolic towers of the old industrial area have become canvases, giving new shapes and colors to the city. Here they left their mark on Overspin, SMK crew, TOTS crew, Vesod, Knz Clan, Truly Design, Krio, ADC crew, Zoer & Velvet (CSX crew) and Erase & Arsek, while Graphic Surgery, 2501 and V3rb0 worked on Towersbehind the stripping shed.

One of the characteristics of the event is that even schools , hospitals and private buildings make their walls available: so this year the Nievo school in Corso Moncalieri brings the murals of the two art brothers Bue the Warrior and Chase , Galo and Pixel Pancho , while the JJ Rousseau school in via Monte Ortigara was decorated with the surreal characters of Mr. Thoms , a famous writer , but also a painter and sculptor and illustrator.

The Turinese Spek and Zork filled the façade of the Amedeo di Savoia hospital with a majestic and colorful tree to depict the strength and resistance of this building where, for more than a century, infectious diseases have been cured.

After having invaded the West Cost, Los Angeles and New York with its geometric shapes, the great American artist Augustine Kofie was entrusted with the largest wall of the event, that of the Richelmy Institute in Corso Tassoni.

The theme of music could find no better canvas than the wall of the Hiroshima Mon Amour , the main musical center of Turin: MrFijodor and Corn79 worked here , while at the Parco Doria a workshop by the Dutch artist Ottograph was realized , in collaboration with the artists from the organizing associations of Picturin : Wens and Reser of the Style Orange association .

PicTurin is the demonstration that investing in art has its own return and not only in terms of visitors and onlookers who turn upwards or look at a more colorful city, but considering the figures that cities spend to clean up walls from abusive writings . Turin with fewer resources has created an international artistic event and at the same time illegal graffiti has been reduced.
