14th March 2023 – (Hong Kong) The highly anticipated HKWALLS Festival is set to take place from 18th to 26th March, 2023, across Hong Kong’s Central & Western District. This marks the festival’s 8th edition and it promises to be a vibrant showcase of street art with an international flair.

For the first time since 2019, the festival will feature renowned international artists who will join their local counterparts in transforming ordinary walls into original works of art. These mural masters include the French artist Matthieu Koga, known for his satirical and metaphorical style, Czech illustrator Mára Cmára, who excels in digital colour painting; and Italian painter Zed1, renowned for his post-modern surrealism. The festival will offer a diverse range of styles that will collide in the streets, providing a fresh perspective to the urban landscape.
