From the MURAL Festival in Montreal to BEYOND THE STREETS in Los Angeles, public art made by leading visual artists are being celebrated in special live-installments across the globe. Accompanying these major events are a range of limited artworks, sculptures, prints, as well as collectible figures that can be purchased on-site. However more and more festival-runners are looking towards online sales to attract a wider consumer base, especially longtime purveyor of street art 1xRUN who helms Detroit’s annual Murals in the Market Festival.

Read on to learn more about exclusive festival releases alongside a time-limited KAWS BFF Companion raffle made in partnership between HYPEBEAST ART and the Moco Museum.
