Veszprém has new works of street art - We present the final result!
In recent years, spectacular street art has appeared in several parts of Veszprém, including the Jutasi Housing Estate, Stadion street, and the Viaduct area. Two new areas have recently been covered with paintings, so if you're curious to see the finished works, head to the Veszprém Arena and the Maxon Tunnel.
The Open Call
As part of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture programme, the House of Arts Veszprém launched a public call for street art projects in designated public spaces in Veszprém in spring 2023. The locations chosen for the project were the underpass of the Veszprém Arena, the Maxon tunnel, the underpass under the Déli ring road accessible from Mester street, the V-Busz Veszprém Haszkovó bus stop, the driver's rest area and a bus covered with the artwork in the form of a sticker.
Each location had a theme: the Veszprém Arena underpass was about what Veszprém, Lake Balaton and Bakony mean to the artist; the Maxon Tunnel was about space, aviation, cycling and sustainable transport; and the V-Bus was about promoting public transport.
The Maxon Tunnel mural, created by the ALL CAPS Collective team, features motifs that accurately reflect the company's activities: an electric motor, a hand holding an electric razor, a Mars rover, an electric bicycle and a humanoid robot.
A total of 37 entries were received from Hungarian and foreign artists. The selection of the winning artists took place on 13 April, and the underpass of the Veszprém Arena was transformed into a canvas by the Italian Alice Lotti and Matteo Ceretto, the French Meyso Art, the Hungarian ALL CAPS Collective and the Color Brigade, while the surfaces of the Maxon and the V-Bus will also be covered with works by the Hungarian ALL CAPS Collective.
The focus on Veszprém and the Bakony-Balaton region
The theme of the Veszprém Arena underpass reflects Veszprém, Bakony and Lake Balaton as the European Capital of Culture in 2023. To get a closer look at the latest creations, we asked the artists to tell us about their latest experiences and inspirations.
