Paradox : Tauranga Street Art Festival

The 2017 festival is over, thank you for being part of it and making it the wonderful celebration of street art it was. Paradox will not take place in 2018. Tauranga City Council is looking at possibilities to support another street art festival sometime in the future.

Tauranga City Council in partnership with Oi YOU! and the Tauranga Art Gallery proudly presented Paradox: Tauranga Street Art Festival featuring the Oi YOU! Collection and works by internationally acclaimed artists.

The festival was the first of its kind in Tauranga and paradoxical in its nature not only by bringing street art into a gallery but also by internationally acclaimed artists turning the city into an outdoor gallery, adding to the city’s existing display of street art.
