Vukovart – art harbour is a concept that promotes Vukovar city, (Croatia) as a place that accepts all artists, creators of today’s new values. By this concept organisers manage to change the visual identity of Vukovar as a city , but also create an Open Gallery for all visitors.
This year’s 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.
