August 28, 2019 – The 2nd edition of xSTaticJAM, the international graffiti gathering and street art festival in Split, begins on Wednesday, August 28. 

The content-rich program this year gathers 50 local and international graffiti artists in Split who will enrich the city’s public spaces in five urban locations with their artwork. In addition to the graffiti program, this year’s xSTaticJAM will also give citizens and visitors the chance to participate in an all-day street art event on Saturday, August 31st, offering a range of free content at the Youth Center and the surrounding area, reports Dalmacija Danas.

The artists will use their expertise to create artwork on Pujanke Street, Supavla Street, the sidewalk in Kman and the walls at the entrance to the Marjan Tunnel. The artists will paint until Friday when Split’s citizens will be able to see the final result and revitalized city walls, which will become a unique street showroom and an example of how to aesthetically enrich urban spaces.

The grand finale of this year’s xSTaticJAM will follow this Saturday, August 31st, at the Youth Center and on the plateau in front of the Center, where a full-day program dedicated to street art culture will be held. On this occasion, citizens will have the opportunity to try their hands at graffiti, take photos and talk to graffiti artists, but also to leave their messages on the billboards as part of “Take It Off!” by which the City wishes to promote freedom of expression without affecting public spaces. 

Split’s youth and anyone up for an adventure can join the skate school and ride BMX bikes, while visitors will also be able to learn the basics of screen printing, film projections and video projections, check out a photo exhibition by graphic designer and documentary filmmaker Marko Dajak, and explore the Open art corner, all accompanied by music from the DJ duo Los Santos and an interesting food offer.

From 9 pm, the music part of the evening will be followed by live concerts, with Gršo, Žuvi, and Krešo Bengalka performing. The after-party then moves to Kocka with Banana Zvuk and a gastro corner. All content is open and free to all interested citizens.
