Floridian, gleaming white and meticulously designed, Alys Beach is the kind of town where a speck of dust looks out of place. So, that the town annually absorbs aeroplane-loads of international artists and their boundary-pushing, bold artwork, had me a touch more than skeptical: I was absolutely bewildered.  

Digital Graffiti is a three-day celebration of art, architecture and - though oddly unmentioned in its marketing - lounging round the pool discussing art and drinking Mimosas. Submissions by global artists are whittled down to just 20 vastly varying digital works, which are then projected onto the white-walled coastal town for two truly special nights.

Along with the 20 artists from 10 countries - including South Korea, Australia and Switzerland - three 'resident artists' will also showcase their work - last year's winner Yandell Walton from Melbourne, Sean Capone from Brooklyn and Keaton Fox from Detroit, Michigan - after spending seven days in the town with curator Brett Phares to collaborate and create individual pieces.

Up for grabs was $10,000 in prize money to be spread amongst the Best of Show, Curator's Choice, as well as three honourable mentions (which, upon seeing the quality of the work, the indecisive judges quickly rose to four mentions. All were decided by the curator and a panel of art and industry experts. 

Here, we’ve put together an overview of the festival and our favourite of its incredible artworks.
