The international Graffiti Festival “Meeting of Styles Switzerland” celebrates its 10th anniversary. With more than 70 national and international artists, the walls of the Red Factory from Friday to Sunday will be repainted live! In addition, accompanying DJs, rappers, plus BBQ-grill and bar right in the courtyard, will round up the colorful spectacle. The Meeting of Styles is free for all to see.
For the tenth time spray-can-art will be celebrated at the highest level of professionals including artists from the USA, Germany, Italy and France. However, the organization puts the focus on Swiss graffiti artists to provide them with a creative platform, as legal spaces disappear from year to year.
In Switzerland it is very difficult to find a good spot for an international meeting of graffiti-artist, as in many cities, anti-graffiti campaigns are running and therefore legal graffiti is not tolerated. That is why the association “Meeting of Styles Switzerland” main concern is to present the phenomenon of graffiti art and its positive side to an interested audience.
The factory has a lot of nice walls in various sizes for single pieces as well as for complex productions.
Check out the gallery!
