Get Up

Get up Street art festival


A celebration of street art & graffiti culture with large scale works, live painting street party, workshops

Join us for an explosion of colours and creativity, as Peaball brings you their second instalment of the “Get Up” Street Art initiative to the Maiden City in 2024.

Lower Clarendon Street will be the main hub with art, music, workshops and more.  Additional art installations will be darted across the banks of the Foyle.

This year we have secured one of the top artists on the global street art scene, Jeks (@jeks_nc). This piece will become a legacy piece and remain in place for many years to come for tourists and locals to enjoy.

This will also go down as Northern Ireland’s tallest mural to date!

JEKS is a renowned graffiti artist and muralist based
in Greensboro, North Carolina, whose vibrant and dynamic works adorn building facades and public spaces in cities across the world. He has made a name for himself globally with his hyper-realistic monochromatic portraits as well as full-colour portraits that feature meticulous detail, symmetry, smooth gradients, saturation, and emotion. His artwork stands out for its unique blend of realism and surrealism.

JEKS has dedicated himself to mastering the aerosol medium and has developed a self-taught mastery that few artists possess. His devotion to his craft is evident in the quality and depth of his work. His pieces are highly sought after by collectors and art enthusiasts alike, and he has participated in numerous exhibitions and public.
