"More art for more people!"

Book a Street Artist is not only an online booking platform for talented artists from around the world. 

Our vision is to empower artistic talent and make it universally accessible. We mainly work with street artists. Be aware that - in our understanding - Street Art is any type of art happening in the streets. Together with other local and international projects, we work towards a world in which Street Art is recognized to make cities and its citizens happier and more connected. 

Our crew speaks on conferences, participates in competitions and awards, organizes street campaigns, exhibitions, and issues PANTA Magazine, among many other things.
