ART BELOW | POP UP | NEW ORLEANS | FEBRUARY 2012

Art Below are proud to announce their first "pop up" billboard show in America, 

running 

throughout February in New Orleans, bringing local and international 

artists together 

and enhancing the citys unique cityscape with even more color 

during the most festive 

time of the year, Mardi Gras. 

Billboard space used normally for advertising will feature a mix of urban and 

contemporary art with a diverse range of techniques and influences.  A curated 

selection of 20 billboards flanking the major Mardi Gras parade routes including the 

famed "Zulu" parade will feature works by artists including Inkie, Art Wars and Philip 

Levine, as well as New Orleans based artists Sarah Ashley Longshore, Dave Rhodes 

and street photographer Zack Smith.  

Running alongside the billboard show is an exhibition of the artists original works at 

Gallery Orange based in the heart of the French quater, with a launch event on the 3rd 

February and a Mardi Gras style party on the 18th February.  

Artists from all over the world including Swedish borne Johan Wahlstrom,  Inkie, 

(Bristol UK), Mario Denotti (Italian), Everton Wright (London, UK) Alejandro Mos Riera 

(Spain) and Pam Phillipo (UK) are making their way out to New Orleans for the first time 

to see their work in situ and join in the celebrations of the worlds biggest party.  

Scenes and moments from this epic trip by this eclectic group of creative adventurers will 

be captured and made into a short film 

to be 

screened on the Art Below web site in April 2012.
