Mural Fest/International Mural Fest is a truly unique art competition held annually in the ‘Town of Murals’ in Sheffield, Tasmania Australia. Mural Fest has been so successful since its inception in 2003 that similar such events are now taking place interstate and overseas.
Nine artists are selected to paint a mural measuring 2.1 x 4.8 metres based on a specific theme over a five-day period. Mural Fest tests an artist’s skills, endurance, and tenacity while subjecting them to public scrutiny, time constraints and sometimes unpredictable Tasmanian weather!
For 2022 nine artists from around Tasmania will be selected to paint a mural over a five-day period based on the theme ‘The Place I Call Home’. Two prizes will be awarded, The People’s Choice Award and the Highly Commended Award. These murals will remain on display in Mural Park for eleven months until the murals are relocated to the towns they represent in Tasmania, forming ‘The Tasmanian Mural Trail’.
