Meeting Of Styles 2010

It’s that time of year again for the graffiti ‘tour de force’ known as the Meeting of Styles the tour is currently underway in Europe and will be in the U.S. starting with the East Coast the 10th of September. Originating in Wiesbaden Germany, the Meeting Of Styles was created in 1997 as a meeting point for writers the world over to come and celebrate graff culture. The demolition of the meeting site in Germany launched the idea to make it an international tour; creating a comprehensive network of artists the world over. In the spirit of cooperation and promotion, since 2002 MOS has launched over 75 events in sixteen countries across Europe, Russia and America. These events have sponsored hundreds of graffiti artists from all over the world and throughout the years have attracted more than 100.000 spectators, providing a focal point for urban street culture and graffiti art to reach the larger community.

This year they are featuring a shirt to commemorate the event by one of my favorite writers Aryz. He collaborated with another writer from Spain to create a shirt to generate revenue in order to fund the event. In the future they hope to be corporate sponsor free by gaining enough money from online donations and sales from their store.
