From all over the world we invited to Pantelimon for this community art project: Ella & Pitr (France), the creators of gigantic roof paintings, Moose (UK), the artist who invented reverse graffiti, Martha Cooper (USA), who will convince the skeptics through her photography how big the impact of street art really is, Victor Ash (Denmark), the creator of iconic pieces of wall from his anti-apartheid mural of the 80s to the kosmonaut in Berlin.
The winners of this year’s Call for Artists are: TOM (Sorina Tomuleţiu), Robert Obert, Nomado, Nada Krstajić and Cristiana Comănici, they will paint the neighborhood stories at Giants of Pantelimon Street Art Days (Zilele Uriasi de Pantelimon)! Read the stories that inspired the artists or, even better, read all the strories!
Carmen Nistor ( Germany) will offer a free class of calligraphy, and because Biancoshock (Italy) this August enjoyed staying with us in Bucharest, he will come again and surprise us with a new installation.

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.
