Theme of WSP 2018: Celebrate Art!

This year World Street Painting exists for 5 years!


We are going to have a party. We celebrate our birthday. Therefore we have chosen a festive theme: Celebrate Art! We celebrate art, together with Arnhem.

In this edition, special moments can be found on the programme. Expect a real party, along with presents…


Even 25 3D streetartists, among them 10 international top-artists, will cheer up the squares of Arnhem with 3D artworks. De drawings will be painted live from 5 to 8 July. You can visit them until October 21.

Theme of WSP 2018 will be announced soon

In 2017, the theme of the festival was Nature! Polar bears, giant turtles and birds, the nature came to live in the world of 3D art. Just like previous years, it is up to the public to decide on this year’s theme. But what will it be? The theme of the World Street Painting Festival 2018 will be announced in March. 

Win free entrance tickets for Burgers’ Zoo

The best thing about 3D street paintings is that they will come to live through the lens of your camera. Through the camera the 3D effect shows best and this often results in awesome pictures.


Also the paintings made by the 11 international artists in Arnhem are perfect photograph material. The more creative, the better. Have you taken a wonderful or funny picture yet? Or are you still planning to do so? Make sure to send it to us before 31 August via Facebook and you might win 4 entrance tickets for Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem.


We are looking for the funniest, best, most original and/or most creative pose. So be creative and win! The winner will be announced on 3 September.
