The 10th annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach came to the finale on Sunday, May 21, 2017, and announced â€śLiquid Loveâ€ť by Kameron Neal of Brooklyn, NY, as â€śBest of Showâ€ť (click over to our Instagram for the video). The projection art festival sponsored by Christie welcomed artists from around the world to Northwest Floridaâ€™s Scenic Highway 30A in South Walton County to showcase original digital artwork on the stark white walls of Alys Beachâ€™s homes.
â€śDigital Graffiti is a surreal opportunity for artists to use their voices and experiences to challenge the pure white architecture of Alys Beach,â€ť Neal says. â€śIâ€™m honored to have participated in its 10th year and hope that Digital Graffiti can continue to foster artistsâ€™ growth for many more.â€ť
