The Cans Festival

Banksy invited artists to join him in London for The Cans Festival stencil party, this time not in a building but in a tunnel. With permission, the tunnel was closed down to make way for an onslaught of color and sculptural installations.

The tunnel’s location was kept secret while the artists set to work making their mark in the center of London. On Saturday the address was announced and crowds, who were invited to bring their own stencils, flocked to Waterloo to join in the fun.

“Show of the Year. Show of the Decade. Possibly Show of the Century.” Banksy the known (unknown) guerilla street’s artist calls for exhibition and brought together many artists like Faile, Blek among others…

Some people are calling it the greatest stencil art show that has ever taken place in a tunnel. It was visited by 28,544 people and 623 of them painted on the walls.
