The last year has seen some breathtaking artworks adorn the streets of numerous cities around the world and we wanted to celebrate the biggest and brightest pieces that have been made in 2018. For the first time ever, MURAL presents you the MURAL Awards.
Bringing some much needed recognition to pioneers of the urban art movement, these awards sought the help of a jury panel of experts in the field to highlight what was new, beautiful and fun in the urban art scene. Including two of the festival’s founders, André and Yan, talented street art photographer Daniel Weintraub and renowned art curator Charlotte Dutoit, the jury voted for their favorite urban art piece in 9 categories: best abstract mural, best photorealistic mural, best figurative mural, best artistic installation, best emerging artist, project with the most interesting message, best Canadian piece, most innovative project and their ultimate favorite project of the year. Finally, we made you vote for YOUR favorite urban artwork of the year through our Instagram page.
Without further ado, here are the final results:
Best abstract mural
Best photorealistic mural
Best figurative mural
Best artistic installation
Best emerging artist
Project with the most interesting social message
Best Canadian piece
Most innovative mural
