International Mural Fest

International Mural Fest - Sheffield


The International Mural Fest is a truly unique art competition held annually in Sheffield – the ‘Town of Murals’, in Tasmania, Australia.  Commencing Easter Sunday every year, Mural Fest is so successful that similar events are now happening interstate and overseas.

Each year, nine artists compete in a public ‘paint off’ from Easter Sunday to the following Saturday. Each artist must complete a 2100mm x 4800mm mural, using the same poem as their mural’s central theme and inspiration. Each year a new poem is selected, meaning no two Mural Fests are ever the same.

The competition is conducted in Mural Park – Sheffield’s very own outdoor art gallery in the heart of Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain touring region.

Mural Fest tests artistic skill, endurance and tenacity: artists are subjected to public scrutiny, time constraints and sometimes unpredictable Tasmanian weather!

International Mural Fest : 01 - 07 November 2020
