Two world-renowned street artists are heading to Hull to bring a burst of colour to this year’s Humber Street Sesh.

Taking inspiration from Hull landmarks and links, Hong Kong-based Bao Ho and Anny Chong will bring their creative talent to walls in the Fruit Market before and during the two-day event, taking place this weekend (Friday, August 2, and Saturday, August 3).

Two walls at the rear of the Humber Street performance venue are earmarked for Bao and Anny to create large-scale colourful artworks and festival-goers will be able to watch the artists at work at various times across the two days.

Self-taught Bao, also known as Simple Bao, is the queen of Hong Kong’s art scene, winning the 2015 Secret Walls art “battle”, the world’s premier live art event. She works on projects across the globe and has collaborated with top international brands including Microsoft, Nike and Red Bull.

She was also commissioned by Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, to paint one of four Simpsons commissions at the UPFest urban paint festival in Bristol last year.

Anny, also known as ANHZ, is one of the most active illustrative and colourful artists in Hong Kong, working in streets and alleys across the city, as well as in US, China, Europe.

The artists are coming to Humber Street Sesh as part of an Arts Council-funded graffiti project.
