Digital Graffiti Takes Over Alys Beach

Inlet Beach, Fla. - As Alys Beach celebrates the 10th year of Digital Graffiti, the curator of the festival told us, he wanted to take the festival to a new level and play with light in the biggest and brightest way. 

"We've got a new partner Christie digital, that's bringing out a ton of amazing equipment. It's going to raise a few eye lids, more that just a few feet. It's going to be surprising, the residency artist have been finding out, as well as Christie Digital,"described Brett Phares, Digital Graffiti curator.

The immaculate white walls of Alys Beach will be illuminated with radiant colors. As the sun goes down, 20 artists from all over the world will digitally display their artistic master pieces all over the architecture. 

"You take the work and you start projecting it onto the structure themselves and you start seeing other kinds of conversations. I try to stir those conversations up and help people see other conversations going on." Phares told us, he doesn't want to have just one conversation. He envisions each art piece will stimulate dozens of creative conversations. 

Of the 300 submissions Digital Graffiti received this year, only 20 artists were chosen. One of the artists selected, traveled across the world from Melbourne, Australia to showcase her art vibrant, rhythmic and captivating art. 

"Digital Graffiti has allowed me to spend some time with developing techniques to render them into a 3D world. So, I'm hoping that tomorrow coming down people can see a new imagined world on the side of a building," said Krystal Schultheiss, artist in resident.

As you can see, it is an art show like nothing you have seen before. Spectators are already in line waiting to see the show we actually just got word that this event is officially sold out. Digital Graffiti is starting tonight and will continue through Sunday in Alys Beach.
