MOS Wiesbaden 2015

This summer, a small team from the EndoftheLine crew headed over to Wiesbaden to paint for the original Meeting of Styles festival. Taking a prime position at a water station just set back from the main site, the guys came up with a collaborative underwater theme mixed in with some banging characters and letter wildstyles. Jim Vision, Dr Zadok & Tizer stepped up alongside Vile, Odeith, The TSF Crew, Esteo & Naste & Disorderline. Take a look at some of the images below to see how this mega collaboration panned out…

Thanks to THE man of MOS, Manuel for the images.

Meeting of Styles – Wiesbaden, Germany

Last weekend was the long awaited Meeting of Styles in Wiesbaden, Germany. I say long awaited because unlike the rest of the team this was my FIRST Meeting of Styles and Wiesbaden was where Meeting of Styles originated. So it was kind of a big deal.

The naive cretin I am expected to rock up to an industrial, washed out site decorated by the ghosts of artists from past years and old event posters sporting images of Germanys finest underground hip hop heads. I wasn’t totally wrong, however the site also ran alongside the river Rhine which was surrounded by ‘beach’ feel bars and restaurants and the most stunning scenery around; all the perfect backdrop for the future artwork.

We arrived and immediately headed to the walls to secure our spot, pre-plan the wall space and start stretching our muscles, ready for the climbing, balancing and shitting ourselves to come. We were happy. We had managed to bag ourselves a humungous wall spot on the main part of the site and were working alongside artists such as Odeith, Vile, Furt & Dase, the TSF Crew & Nuclear One Crew.

The UK team consisting of Jim Vision, Tizer, Gent & Elfin, repped well. Taking on the challenging ‘Under Water’ theme, we were met with rolling eyes that said “been there done that” but we don’t listen to that bollocks, and we knew it could be done with originality and true MOS class.

We were right. All the artists came together in beautiful sync, there were no egos, no territorial wars. The festival became the mutual appreciation society. Hugs were big, smiles bigger.

On the Saturday we were joined by some of the local DJ’s, MC’s & B-Boys, which was a compelling introduction to the German hip hop scene and encouraged all walks of life to take part and have a bit of a boogie.

The weekend overall was a massive success, and, for me especially, it was incredible seeing such inspiring artists come together from all over the world and show off their styles in one space.

Now it’s not a competition, but we’ve got MOS UK approaching soon! July 4th – 6th to be exact. We’re taking scattered spots around the Shoreditch and Brick Lane areas and have invited 50 artists. Will it be better than Germany? We don’t know. All we know is this has set the bar pretty high and we will have our work cut out for us. But we have some unreal talent, fantastic sponsors and food that will consist of non-bread items.

Odeith is a beast

Portuguese artist Odeith has been impressing us for years with his crazy anamorphic style, having seen a new video from him on Youtube the other day it seemed like a good moment to collect together some of our favourite videos from him. Some of the video could be better quality but you’ll get the idea. If you like what you see check out http://odeith.com/

Check it out, it’s mind-boggling time.
