October 20, 2014
Sanja Lazic was born in 1990 in Belgrade, Serbia. Her interest in art comes from a very early age and although she didn’t have the talent to pursue it professionally, she enjoys every day working and writing about it. Her favorite urban artists are Interesni Kazki, Saner and Phlegm.

After last year’s major opening success, the young art festival Life is Beautiful is expanding this year from a two-day to a three-day cultural event. The festival taking place in Downtown Las Vegas will once again welcome some of the world’s top musicians, chefs and artists who will demonstrate why they are considered to be of the greatest in their fields. This year’s festival will feature nearly 70 chart-topping acts, dozens of culinary giants, and world-renowned speakers, all on 4 massive stages in the heart of the newly revived Downtown Las Vegas, with unexpected art installations and several Culinary Villages. Founded in October 2013 as a project aiming to help people conquer their fears and chase their dreams, Life is Beautiful its inaugural year attracted more than 60,000 patrons, and is now branching out to an international online forum for social change.

Street Art A-Listers

Evident by last year’s successful program and the many murals that still exist on the streets of downtown today, the urban surroundings of the Life is Beautiful Festival provide a perfect backdrop for the eclectic and semi-permanent street art program featuring some of the biggest names in the international street art scene.
