SAFEWALLS is pairing up with cutting-edge artists to create original art posters inspired by Cirque du Soleil shows. With these artworks, SAFEWALLS tours the world following the trail of Cirque du Soleil shows to hold exhibitions that grows in size as works from previous cities are added to the collection. By bringing Cirque du Soleil and visual artists together, SAFEWALLS celebrates street art and culture—the very roots of Cirque—and breathes new life into the time-honoured art form that is the vintage circus poster.
Circus posters are all about mindboggling acrobatics, raw entertainment and the suspension of disbelief. And like street art, they elicit the reactions of onlookers, drawing them into alternative worlds and stretching their imagination.
