Street Artist Hyuro to Turn Copenhagen Street into Denmark’s Longest Artwork
Posted By Helen Morgan On January 28, 2013 @ 2:30 pm In Art,Urban design | No Comments
Danish authorities decided that a long street in Copenhagen  needed a makeover, so they hired Spanish artist Hyuro  to transform the corridor into the nation’s longest piece of street art ! Once completed, the finished work will stretch 271 meters long as it enlivens what was previously a bland grey street.
Hyuro was chosen after the creative community ArtRebels  had to pick their favourites from a bunch of 140 artists scattered all over the globe in an international competition. The winning proposal is “In / between” and is demonstrated in this fantastic video . When she accepted the project Hyuro said: “Street art is an interesting way of engaging in a dialogue with the city, and I can’t wait to start this project”.
