Vitaliy Agapeyev, the Ukrainian artist, has participated in the biggest Austrian street art festival Calle Libre on 3-10 August 2019 in Vienna. Project supported by the Ukrainian Institute.
Vitaliy Agapeyev, the Ukrainian artist, muralist and painter, has created a monochrome mural in a size of 4x8m addressing the theme of duality which is the Festival's theme this year.
In his work, which is called "Local_Innerfield", the painter decentralizes image of a human as a result of the latest discoveries in physics and science, and revisits the idea of integrity and vitality. As Vitaliy comments his work: "In a system, where every item is not simply centered but has a value the crucial role plays completeness and sustainability of the links between those items".
Mural is located at Lerchenfelder Gürtel 9/11, not far from the Vienna center.
International street art festival Calle Libre is the biggest street art festival in Austria that already assembles 37 murals in Vienna that united in the artistic urban tourist guide. This year there will be 16 paintings added in the Neulerchenfeld districts of Vienna. Calle Libre exists for 6 years and promotes art, culture and music.
"For us as an International art festival it is very important to integrate artists from regions in the east.
Especially the CEE countries are very interesting to us. Vitaliy approach of finding abstract form in an intuitive way and his graffiti background made him the perfect choice for us. We are very happy with having Vitaly as part of the Calle Libre Festival 2019 and received positive feedback for his mural in Vienna. It is great to finally have an Ukraine artist at our festival" - says Jakob Kattner, founder and organizer of Calle Libre.
