Live paintings can be seen today, along with guided tours during the day and night this weekend. Visitors will be able to view ‘Sandrew’ Collection at the Benalla Art Gallery, which features works created by Rone and Adnate, two of the country’s most prominent street artists. Over the weekend, Adnate will also be working on a new art piece inside the Goorambat Uniting Church.

If you fancy yourself as a creative type, you’ll have the opportunity to make your mark with a community ‘Paint by Numbers’ mural – with the guidance of an experienced artist of course! There will also be workshops run by the artists involved to help you fine tune your street art skills.

The Wall to Wall Festival is in its third year, however, this year’s event is expected to be it’s biggest.  The event’s Artistic Director Shaun Hossack is encouraging everyone to get involved in the Benalla event.

“Whether you’re a staunch enthusiast or just plain curious about this ever-evolving art form, Wall to Wall is your chance to skill up, take in new work, and get up-close and personal with some of Australian street art’s biggest names”.
