Mysterious Biancoshock in Bucharest
The famous italian with unseen face and his interactive performance at Make a Point’s Art Tower
Giants of Patelimon – the Make a Point project in which stories of the inhabitants of Pantelimon, Bucharest inhabitants will be illustrated by artists from all over the world and painted on roofs of industrial buildings – will at the end of August welcome it’s first important guest. Biancoshock, the famous while in the same time secretive Italian artist (he is never showing his face), is known for his installations, both ephemeral and combining in them a social and political message.
Invited by Make a Point to take part in the Giants of Pantelimon community art project, Biancoshock comes to Bucharest with a teaser for the Giants of Pantelimon Street Art Days (Zilele Uriasi de Pantelimon), 13th to 15th of October.
When: Thursday, 24th of August, 6 pm. After 7:30 pm, Biancoshock himself will present some of his most important projects, and you can find out more about our community art project from the Make a Point team.
Come join us for the Giants of Pantelimon Street Art Days, 13th to 15th of October 2017 at Make a Point and discover the urban art by Romanian and international artists on the roofs of Pantelimon, or register for our free workshops and take part in the public art events!

About Make a Point
Make a Point looks back on 10 years of experience in reconverting and reinventing industrial spaces, cultural intervention, as well as starting art projects in a place where the access to culture is limited by the lack of public infrastructure. At the begginings of Make a Point association stand the rehabilitation and transformation of a former industrial space into a cultural center. A former section of a textile factory became a modern exhibition space as well as projection space, and community library. In one of our last big projects, we transformed the old water tower of the factory into an unique art installation, at the same time keeping its utility and functionality.
About Giants of Pantelimon
Giants of Pantelimon is a community art project by Madalina Rosca and Paul Arne Wagner, starting in 2016 with a pilot featuring the first painting on a factory roof in Bucharest. In the spring of 2017, the project continued with Andreea Dragan’s neighborhood story hunt followed by the international call for artists. Giants of Pantelimon Street Art Days will be the climax of the first (2017) edition of the project.
Giants of Pantelimon is a Make a Point project
The project is financed within the cultural program “Bucharest, participative city” by the Bucharest City Hall, through the Cultural Center of Bucharest ARCUB and co-financed by the Administration of the National Fund for Culture (AFCN).
