Colors Festival, the stunning celebration of street art, paintings and photography, will be leaving Manchester on October 29. Tickets are still available, but they’re selling fast so you’ll want to grab yours sooner rather than later. The family-friendly experience has taken over a giant repurposed space that spans 800m² and promises a fascinating sensory journey with a kaleidoscopic collection of larger-than-life artwork. Not only can you enjoy glowing UV rooms and pink spaces Barbie would be proud of, but you can also get stuck in with some interactive installations. The mesmerising art trail can be found at Regent Retail Park in Salford, showcasing the works of over 30 established and local artists from all around the world.
So what can you actually expect at Colors Festival?
Well as mentioned the works of 30 established and emerging artists will be on display, but in larger-than-life fashion. Expect artwork that covers entire walls in a venue that’s been completely repurposed for the experience. The artwork will include images of some iconic faces which we can’t reveal yet but that gorgeous Frida Kahlo mural you see above was done by Jo di Bona for the Paris edition and he’s got something new in store for Manchester. You’ll find yourself strolling through brightly coloured immersive rooms that have the XXL sized art plastered across the spaces creating a unique art experience you can interact with.
You’ll be treated to art across a range of mediums including photography, street art, paintings and more. As much as having the works of renowned names is great, what’s equally important is that Colors Festival is championing local talent in a big way. Rather than being pushed off to the side, there’s going to be a room dedicated entirely to Manchester artists. It’s going to be fun for the whole family and is sure to turn anyone who visits into at least a bit of an art lover. Don’t just take our word for it, this is just a few things attendees have said…
