Vukovart – art harbour is a concept that promotes Vukovar (Croatia) as a place that accepts all artists, creators of new values.
The whole idea started in 2016 when Filip Mrvelj (the only Croatian 3D Street Artist) painted a bridge over small river Vuka in Vukovar. Next year was organized first Vukovart and still lasts.
By this concept we change visual identity of Vukovar, but also make tourist attraction for all visitors as Open Gallery.
This years motto was “Give me 5”, with five new murals of World’s top Street Artists: WD (Wild Drawing) – Indonesia, Mehsos – Belgium, Thiago Mazza – Brasil i asistent David Arranhado – Portugal, Lonac – Croatia i Zabou – France.
