Who are we?

The Goal and the purpose of the Urbane Kunst association is the promotion of the art forms Graffiti and Street art. It is also a request of us to provide local Artists a platform and create a creative Network.
Our association organises Events, supplies Workshops and take care of mural designs and commissioned works.

What are we doing?

We represent a selective of local and international Artists and we are counterpart for commissions and art interventions. Our motivated Artists lead workshops which are organised by us, no matter if it’s with a school class or as an team building event, some exciting hours are guaranteed. In Paris, Berlin or New York , a mural of an Artist is common courtesy. We are anxious to make this happen also in Switzerland. To customize our so loved urban art to a broad public, we organise beside our murals also exhibitions. On such events everyone has the opportunity to have a look on the work of the artists. The artists and their multifaceted art , who are represented by us, will be presented on social medias. Over these internet presence, you as our visitor stay at the last over projects and events, and of course the newest and most beautiful pictures from the streets won’t be missing.

Artists

The artists who are represented by us are all working on the streets of the world. We don’t represent art students or graphic designers, who are doing street art just for financial causes in their studios. For our artists, street art is the great passion they are dedicated to.

We represent artists of all sections of this young art form. Our artists are dealing with Typography, Photorealism, Stencil works, Installations, Comic characters and ,many more.

To the artists we are having a personal relationship, every single one is expert.

We work on a solid, and consensual foundation of trust and are trying the bring the artists forward in this way.

Events

The association organises different events in the range of urban art, exhibitions, live paintings, workshops. Pop-up galleries and many more.

The Workshops

No matter if it’s a workshop at school, or in a youth association, an event, a team advanced training, a birthday party or a bachelor party, our workshop will always be customized.

Bowling and minigolf was yesterday! When you want to surprise your kids, your staff or your friends in a different way, then be up to date and book us for a graffiti or street art workshop!

We have years of experience with the matter und can show you some tricks of the scene.

After a short time, everyone will have an individual idea, which will be realised together. With the tips and tricks of the artists there is nothing in the way for your personal piece of art.

A workshop isn’t only about spray painting on a wall. Together we will create a colourful and productive event, the procedure will be like this:

After a historical intro over the origin of graffiti and street art, we will explain the materials like spray cans and caps. Now everyone can let his creativity flow. After that, we will explain the structure of letters and characters and show you the right technique that the colour stays on the wall, and give you the help you need to create you ideas.

Of course we can show you how to make and use stencils as well, and who knows maybe there is a new Banksy in your school, at work or in your association.

We’re bringing the workshop to you inclusive wooden walls, spray cans, protection wear and everything you need for a successful event.

Everyone can take his own canvas home after the event and show it to they loved.

If you are interested, you can contact us: info@urbanekunst.ch

Murals

Our goal is to organise as much surfaces as possible for artists and to design these creatively. The everyday grey will be added with colours and in this way it creates happiness and variation.

A whole neighbourhood is winning a new view on their living quarters and their habitat. Because this upgrading of the urban space gives joy to children and adults equally.

A neighbourhood is going to be a open air museum, which is available and can be experienced by everyone.

This museum will be frequented by habitants of other neighbourhoods and tourists, which bring new life and energy into your neighbourhood and throw a positive light on art in the public space.

Commission Works

The association works together with different artists from Switzerland, the region Basel and from abroad. We have the fitting artist for every commission, no matter if it’s a child’s room or a private exterior facade. For the surfaces which are given to us there is no limit in creativity, Vehicles, Boats, Bicycles, street chapters, sidewalks, personal items or private objects. Everything is possible.
