Meeting Of Styles London 2015 Full Review

Over the weekend the worlds most famous global Street Art & Graffiti festival finally hit London. The very nature of the event is defined in the name, Meeting of Styles, setting to showcase artists and writers from all over the globe and presenting a full range of Graffiti and Street Art styles.

The event was organised through the hard work of London’s very own Jim Vision and set up around the recently established Nomadic Community Gardens, a location that over the last couple of months has offered itself up and propelled itself to the position of one of the must see locations to witness Street Art in London, Additionally there were extra works placed up in the adjacent park & streets of Allen Gardens, Pedley Street, Grimsby Street & Scalter Street, keeping all the works very centralised.

Saturday provided perfect summer conditions, glorious sunshine without a cloud to be spied. The event was fuelled by the many artists working and accompanied by the delighted passers-by for the duration of Saturday, with those attending the event especially and all the general people who visit the area of a weekend to view the Street Art who were certainly in for an unexpected treat. Contrasting the first day of the festival the weather on Sunday was overcast for the duration and the event was hampered in the late afternoon due to an hour or so of severe rainfall, but this wasn’t enough to stop the last of the painting going on or dampen the spirits of all those that were in attendance.

All in all it was a great event offering a superb and diverse range of Street Art and Graffiti, really offering something for everyone to enjoy. It was a delight to be exposed to so many artists and writers that either rarely paint in London or even have never had the chance to before, drawing in talent from all around the globe for this one great weekend.
