Meeting of Styles
Artists in Dialog
During the month of November, artists Cosby Hayes (USA) and Toia Grehan (Argentina) made a collaborative mural within the mural painting residency Palimpsest Project . This collaboration gave rise to a second project beyond ´ace, as Toia and Cosby participated as a team in the international event Meeting of Styles, held in Martinez, Buenos Aires.
MEETING OF STYLES: BUENOS AIRES
“Some people want Graffiti to stay traditional, some people write their names, others do images. Some people do Graffiti-Writing, others do Street-Art, some use brushes other cans. In Buenos Aires all different disciplines create one giant gallery among the entire city. ESTILO LIBRE finally brings back Meeting of Styles to Buenos Aires! Former MOS in BSAS have been a blast of styles and creativity!”
Meeting of Styles is an international network of graffiti artists and followers who sponsor the creation of graffiti murals in more than sixty countries. The purpose of these events is to promote and legitimize graffiti as an art form. The idea emerged in Germany in 1995 and was re-organized in 2002 under the current name. In the events, murals are created in varied places, commonly in public spaces and metro stations. The events have taken place in over sixty countries in Europe, Asian Russia and America.
