ON THE RUN BOOKS together form an encyclopedia that catalogs graffiti and urban art from around the world. Since 1990, the OTR team has built an ever-growing archive. With every title, original material from various key artists gets digitized and preserved and brings their story to the public. KNOW YOUR HISTORY!
This OTR book isn't about a key person, but a key event of the graffiti scene. Meeting of Styles is an annual series of worldwide graffiti and Hip Hop festivals. United by their passion for art, an international network of graffiti artists and enthusiasts stage these gatherings in cities around the world, making Meeting of Styles the biggest event in global graffiti culture. More than 130 Meetings of Styles have been launched and attracted over 150,000 spectators across cities such as New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Mexico DF, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, Madrid, Liverpool, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Antwerp, Minsk and many more.
The resulting graffiti art is staggeringly amazing, both in quality and quantity. Meeting of Styles—Volume 1 is the first part of a two-book collection documenting this international graffiti explosion.
