THE LARGEST STREET ART PROJECT IN EUROPE ARISES IN PARDUBICE

THE LARGEST STREET ART PROJECT IN EUROPE ARISES IN PARDUBICE

The date 10 September 2015 will enter into the cultural history of Pardubice - on this day we will kick off the largest street art project in the Czech Republic and Europe, in which Danish painter Rahul Amin Kajol will begin to creatively "go to work" on the Prokopka wall on Palacký Street. The wall is 80 meters long and 170 cm high and the leitmotif of the giant art saga will be a crucial moment in the modern history of Pardubice. This artistic act may aspire to the record books not only as the largest artistic street art achievement, but also as the biggest socio - art therapy project: it will not in fact constitute only one author, the pupils in Pardubice schools and their parents, employees of the Pardubice brewery with family members and all of the inhabitants of Pardubice, who have the desire to creatively express themselves and to lend a hand may participate in the wall decorations.

The main role of the visual story of several acts will be the most famous builder of the city, the nobleman, patron and philanthropist William II of Pernštejn. This visionary has a vivid prophetic dream: to look far (for him) into the future and see how the expansion of the city itself and the creation and building of the brewery, an adventure story of the brave brewer, alchemist and creator of the famous Porter beer Alois Šimonek, the development of the Pardubice racecourse, the success of Velká pardubická, the emergence of the Taxis racing obstacle and other glorious moments that crucially influenced the lives of the East Bohemian metropolis. Kajol will work this story into his artistic creations, whose representation will take several days and after completion it will become one of the largest contemporary street-art projects of this type in Europe.
