Stroke –Urban Artfair 2011 Munich
An Artfair in Munich, Stroke it is called.
The fourth edition is coming up while exactly one year ago they have been already very successful in the Bavarian town. Stroke happened also in Berlin and in 2010 more than 25.000 visitors got along to see the work of 600 artists from around the globe. We talk about an event of those brothers Marco and Raiko Schwalbe who founded Stroke artfair to bring in a platform for galleries, artists and creative to present themselves in a more serious way than having an appearance part xyz on the street. It has a focus, it gives a reason to meet and yet it is all about street art, urban art and their facettes. New and fresh Stroke gathers a big load of creativity being an artfair with authentic and contemporary direction. The visitors are getting a very good overview of what is going on in this new movement bogarting more and more space in every town – on walls, shirts, billboards, commercials, retailers, galleries, legal or illegal became secondary. Nobody can ignore the power of creation within the modern life. It is not surprising that the lack of information who does what and where, how and why needed a platform. The aim is to present the work of talented people to a wider audience. As many people as possible should see creative work whether they are young guns or established superstars. The approach is to lift up the scene, new or old-school, established or mummend, professional or engaged, all have that streety appeal. Stroke is the spreadhead as an urban artfair and many people are willing to show their quirk work and direct in this show, that’s why four event days are on schedule giving the chance to discover the most. In May in Munich, end of September again in Berlin. We keep you informed.
