Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is proud to announce the finalists for the 2017 festival. Twenty artists from four countries will gather at Alys Beach in May to showcase their digital artwork and vie for cash prizes totaling $10,000.
“Celebrating our tenth year, Digital Graffiti 2017 marks a deeper relationship between art and architecture,” says event curator Brett Phares. “Our shortlist of artists is more established, more virtuosic, and more vivid. Additionally, our new partnership with Christie Digital will make it an experience you won’t want to miss.”
This year, a select group of artists have been invited to participate in the Digital Graffiti Visiting Artist Series, scheduled for May 10-17, a week prior to the festival.
The three featured artists include Jinku Kim, Curator’s Choice winner in 2016 from Providence, Rhode Island; Krystal Schultheiss, festival finalist in 2015 from Melbourne, Australia; and Robert Seidel, winner of Best in Show at Digital Graffiti’s inaugural year as well as a former finalist and judge from Berlin, Germany
