PichiAvo Mural Edmonton
We are very proud to call Edmonton our home. It is a place rich in culture with vibrant and creative people. Born and raised in Edmonton, we noticed one area that could be improved was the presence of impactful, public art. We are surrounded in a world of advertisements and empty walls which do not fulfill us culturally or spiritually. We need art. Art inspires us, it makes us feel alive. It provokes thought and engages imagination and sometimes a little magic.
We are proud to present an opportunity to contribute towards the latest Rust Magic mural project by Spanish street artists PichiAvo.
Having painted all over the world, we are honoured for this to be their first mural in Canada that will become the largest street art mural in Edmonton.

"With Pichi & Avo's work, viewers can expect a heady concoction of ancient and modern that remixes classics from art's illustrious history and rewrites the rulebook in the process."

We are excited to announce we have secured a wall in the heart of Edmonton, downtown on the south facing wall of Jefferson Lofts shown here:
Our vision for the proposed wall is to create a stunning world class masterpiece that stands alone in scale and craftsmanship. This piece will become an instant landmark and a bold yet beautiful celebration of public art.
This mural will be #39 in the Rust Magic family of murals. You might recognize some of our works all over Edmonton. At Rust Magic, our agenda is sincere - to gift the community with beautiful, free public art skillfully painted by talented local and international artists.
We were fortunate to partner with Merchant Hospitality Group on our latest mural project with Okuda San Miguel . All leftover funds from the fundraising have been generously donated towards this and future Rust Magic projects. We are still in need of support for this mural and every dollar helps.
Funds raised through this campaign will be used towards:
Artist Fees, Flights, Accomodations, Food, Paint, Materials, Wall Preparations, Lift Rental, Insurance, Videography Team, Volunteer Hours and Incidentals.
Your contributions are appreciated and we are happy to offer the following for your donations:
$50+ Signed PichiAvo Spraycan (100 available*)
$100+ Official Rust Magic T-Shirt (50 available*)
$500+ Your name done in graffiti style somewhere in the mural (10 available*)
