After last year’s success with 40 applicants, the Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Project is back for its second edition in 2018. The project will invite up-and-coming artists to transform blank Red Bull coolers into art works of different styles.
Valletta will play host to the 2018 edition of the Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Project, with the trendiest bars around the capital assigned to individual artists, providing inspiration for each cooler design. Ten artists will have the opportunity to create an individual masterpiece and transform these Red Bull coolers, with the finished product will then be housed in some of Valletta’s most unique bars and venues. In 2016, the panel of judges chose six artists for the job in various locations, and the winner was Glenn Ellul.
The event in 2016
The event is supported by VeeGeeBee Art and Add More Colors. Judges will select the ten artists that will embark on the two months project, finishing off with a live installation in the streets Valletta. The finished coolers will be showcased at St James Cavalier in March 2018.
Finalists of 2016
Artists can submit their applications until the end of January. The application form can be found on the Facebook event page: Red Bull Curates: Canvas Cooler Project // Valletta.
