The Meeting of Styles originated from the city of Wiesbaden, Central Germany as a local slaughterhouse closed down in the early 90’s. The builing was soon raided by graffiti fans, who could freely indulge in their art on thousands of square metres. Every summer since 1997 on, graffiti artist would meet up there. In 2001, however, the old slaughterhouse was demolished. But only a year later the Meeting of Styles was born. ‘Meeting of Styles’ is an international festival that take place in 22 countries round the world from six years already. Thumbs up!
