Mural Workshop


​ The project aimed to introduce the mural art and graffiti movement to the students. The event offered the opportunity to learn the necessary techniques involved in the process of producing a large-scale wall painting.

As a result, the participants created a mural that covered a space of approximately 69 square meters. The final design was chosen from the students' submissions gathered via Open Call. The project was enhanced with 2D animation via AR technology as a part of the exhibition held on the reveal day.


The event was organized with the cooperation of Akiyoshidai International Art Village and the University of East Asia and held in the Sai Sai Mitou Roadside station located in Mine (Yamaguchi prefecture) during a period from the 17th of September to the 2nd of October 2022.

The workshop provided information on the brief history of murals, the graffiti movement, and the street art development. During the scheduled activities the students had an opportunity to practice the basics of scaling techniques and working with the following media: spray paints, brushes, and rollers. All of the activities were accompanied by safety lectures held on the site.

​The official mural reveal and workshop-related exhibition took place on the 2nd of October, during which participants signed their names on the wall. The exhibition consisted of students' artworks produced during collaborative assignments and AR experience created with animation implemented into the mural. 
The digital frame-by-frame animation had two running versions. On the opening day, the extended production provided a view of all designs submitted by the students during the Open Call.

The workshop was extended to an additional lecture about the history of the global graffiti movement, which was held at the University of East Asia in Shimonoseki on the 19th of October 2022.
