Superordinary Northshore Hosts New Giant Murals for the Brisbane Street Art Festival 2022

Brisbane Street Art Festival returns this month with its largest program yet, with Superordinary Northshore as its central hub, hosting 12 mural activations and other art events throughout the festival’s 16-day run.

From 7 to 22 May 2022, the city will burst with 50 live eye-catching public murals and installations along with art events and workshops as part of Brisbane Street Art Festival 2022. BSAF will introduce Superordinary Northshore, a repurposed industrial space that will host a slew of art events, side by side with the mural activations. Some of Brisbane’s iconic spots including Howard Smith Wharves, Queen St Mall, RNA Showgrounds, The Valley Mall, and South Bank are also listed as festival locations.

This year’s festival marks the first time that international artists from the USA, Spain, Russia, Thailand, Indonesia and New Zealand are participating since 2019. Visiting artists will include Miss Birdy, Iñigo Sesma and Fivust who will be joined by Australia’s Sofles, Lisa King and Rachael Sarra.

Brisbane Street Art Festival will also bring the “Tools of the Trade” exhibition to the city. The Hong Kong exhibition will highlight the history of street art and graffiti as seen through the artist’s tools and techniques. 

Other featured events include a 90-minute Scribble Slam in collaboration with Brisbane’s Botanica- Contemporary Art Outside; House of Iris, a photography exhibit curated by Brisbane-based photographers Macami and Luis Campbell; and BSAF x Felon’s Party where event-goers will have a chance to sample the official BSAF 2022 beer with artwork designed by Sofles.
