Italian Street Art Festival 'FAME'  with work from OS GEMEOS

The countdown has begun to the opening of this year's edition of Fame Festival 2012 in our favorite southern Italian town, Grottaglie. Now in it's fifth year the street art festival curated by Angelo Milano of Studiocromie is looking set to be another fantastic year at the festival and one certainly not to be missed.

Italian Street Art Festival - Fame Festival

It's been two years since Hookedblog was last in Grottaglie and we are super excited to be returning this weekend for the Fame Festival opening exhibition party on the 22nd of September 2012. We were unable to attend the festival last year due to other commitments, so we are really looking forward to this visit and seeing not just this year's large-scale street art pieces but all of the outdoor work from last year that we missed.
