ART NERD. NEW-YORK. Lori Zimmer
Hello from the quaint (yet chilly) town of Borås, Sweden- which is about 45 minutes from Gothenburg. I’m in town for the start of the second rendition of the No Limit Festival, which turns the quiet town into an outdoor venue for art. There are a zillion mural festivals nowadays, but what I like about No Limit is that the artists chosen aren’t limited to just “street art”- there is a comprehensive inclusion of other types of work, like my friend Laurence Vallieres’ eco-conscious cardboard sculptures, the whimsical chalk/acrylic sketches of David Zinn, and the wood cut outs of Joe Iurato that are placed around the city. Looking forward to seeing how each artist reacts to the Swedish landscape later this week- full line up includes Logan Hicks (duh), Tristan Eaton, DALeast, Joe Iurato, INTI, David Zinn, Laurence Vallieres, Pichi & Avo, Dulk, Curiot, Robert Proch and London Police.
