What Art Festival to See:
Wall to Wall Festival
Benalla, Victoria, April 5-7, 2019. walltowallfestival.com
“A beautiful little street art festival that quite literally takes over the entire township of Benalla in northwest Victoria. Despite the obscure location, Wall to Wall always draws an impressive collection of local and international artists. It’s a really fun, community-orientated event that encourages everyone to get involved.
“Keep an eye out for the work of the young Melbourne artist Kitt Bennett. He paints these incredible murals which, due to their immense scale, can only be viewed in their entirety from an aerial perspective. I hear he has something quite special in store for this year’s festival.”
— Rone, street artist based in Melbourne (Check out Rone’s current exhibition in Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges, “EMPIRE,” here.)"
