GRAFF EXPRESS arrives at Sofia Central Station to saturate the urban space with colors and messages. In the first edition of the art festival, eight Bulgarian professional graffiti artists will work in the subway of the station on a common conceptual work, interpreting the underground space as a crossroads of people and destinies and the capital as a hospitable multicultural city. The project will send the message of tolerance in relationships and coexistence, so that through the language of art Sofia could establish itself as a city of tolerance. It will make gray feelings go away as the modern mural has the power to inspire for new life and beauty, the organizers of the festival say. The result of the creative transformation of 300 square meters of the subway, which connects the bus station and the metro, will be broadcast live on August 13.
