JustKids and Life Is Beautiful want you to Obey. The visual arts lineup for Life Is Beautiful 2016 has been announced, and at least one name jumps out: This September, we’ll have a Shepard Fairey original painted on a Downtown wall. The rest of the street art lineup is an all-star international crew practically ripped from the pages of Juxtapoz: Bezt (Poland), Tristan Eaton (U.S.), Fafi (France), Felipe Pantone (Spain), Martin Whatson (Norway), Dulk (Spain) and Mark Drew (U.S.), with more still to be announced. Also: The festival will feature art installations by Crystal Wagner and Amanda Parer; Simon Heijdens’ Slient Room, a big hit at South by Southwest; and, at long last, the Downtown debut of Mike Ross’ Big Rig Jig, the Burning Man piece last seen at Banksy’s Dismaland “bemusement park.”
