BSBSA hosts the first intervention created by Serbian artist Jana Danilović in Bucharest

2024 BSBSA Jana Danilović (Republic of Serbia) in Bucharest

The BSBSA project hosts the first art intervention in the series, created by Serbian artist Jana Danilović in Bucharest, Romania. Street art enthusiasts are invited to join several key events: a workshop and an artist talk held by Jana, as well as a presentation on digitisation processes in street art by Liljana Radošević.

The BSBSA (Belgrade Sofia Bucharest Street Art) project proudly announces its inaugural art intervention, featuring the Serbian artist Jana Danilović, taking place in Bucharest, Romania. This marks the first in a series of transformative street art initiatives aimed at reshaping public spaces through creative expression and community engagement.

The design I propose to Bucharest is basically a reference to Romanian street art as far as the colour is concerned, and as far as the idea and motifs are concerned. I used some of my favorites, sparrow birds and bicycle riders. So, as it turns out, the tour between Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria begins with my mural in Bucharest. Which is really exciting, as far as I’m concerned, because Romania has really exciting, strong, really diverse street art scene and it’s really going to be an honour actually to go and paint mural in Bucharest. My work that is about to happen there refers to local scene, with colors, because what strikes me the most about some really awesome Romanian muralists and street artist, is the way they use color. A far bolder and more exciting way than I usually do, so this was a challenging but really fun task so far and I’m really looking forward to it. 

“As far as the project is concerned, I’m also really excited about the idea of rethinking and revitalizing certain public spaces through the usage of mural and through the usage of art in public space, in general.” 

– Jana Danilović

Jana Danilović, celebrated for her vibrant and evocative murals, will not only paint her first mural in Bucharest, in Iancului area, but will also lead a workshop and an artist talk for street art enthusiasts. These interactive sessions provide a unique opportunity for participants to delve into her artistic vision and techniques, gaining firsthand insights from one of Serbia’s most prominent street artists.

Following Jana’s artist talk, Liljana Radošević, researcher and member of the Citizen Association “Kruna,”, a part of the BSBSA project consortium, will present digitisation processes in street art and showcase exceptional VR exhibitions produced in previous Kruna projects. This presentation is part of our ongoing collaboration with the Citizen Association “Kruna” and is included in the official Romanian Street Art program. We are thrilled to have Liljana contribute her expertise to this year’s program, enriching our understanding of the intersection between street art and digital innovation.

Join us in Bucharest to witness the creation of this stunning mural, participate in an inspiring workshop, and learn about cutting-edge advancements in street art from Liljana Radošević. Don’t miss this chance to engage with the art and the artists, and to be part of a project that celebrates cultural exchange and artistic collaboration.
