Colourtrend Carries Cans to Waterford Walls
Supporting Irish through art
Colourtrend joins Waterford Walls as the main paint sponsor for 2022. The Irish paint company established in 1953, will continue to support the International Street Art Festival in its 8th year. The festival will see over 24 Irish and international artists revive gable ends and grey facades across Waterford City and the surrounding areas from August 12 – 21.
The Walls team are proud to support Irish brands and welcome the support from Colourtrend with a branch in Waterford. While most artists in the festival use spray paint cans, one in five artists will use emulsion paints to create unique and vibrant designs.
Rachel O’Connor, Managing Director at Colourtrend, and the Festival’s longest-standing sponsor, adds: “We at Colourtrend, are delighted to be continuing our sponsorship of Waterford Walls International Street Art Festival 2022.
“Celebrating local culture is incredibly important to us as an Irish led family brand, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity yet again to support in bringing this wonderful festival of colour to life. We’re excited to be celebrating Waterford’s heritage with powerful and topical themes displayed through impressive and creative murals. We look forward to seeing what the incredible team of talented international artists create in the coming months.”
Waterford Walls welcomes everyone of all ages across Ireland to take part in the festivities including workshops, art jams and walking tours.
The festival is supported by Waterford Council and the Arts Council. For more info on this year’s activities and artist announcements, be sure to check out Waterford Walls on Facebook and Instagram.
