Meeting of Styles - Antwerp

In the weekend of  August 12-14, Antwerp featured the International Grafitti festival 'MEETING of STYLES'.  There was a cutting atmosphere of aerosol spray paint and  mutual competition. The artists liked black T-shirts and baggy pants, they often had a bun in their hair and they preferred dark rimmed glasses: the hipster look. The iconography of their grafittis relied highly on comics from the  sci-fi and horror genres, but there were also several impressive TAGS. As for underwater imagery, of course the octopus was a favorite as it connotates with fear and anxiety. But there was also a quite convincing jellyfish that is shown hereunder
