Famous Swiss graffiti artist Stefan Bucer held a workshop in Baku.
Two-day workshop brought together Azerbaijani, British and American artists. Besides, Swiss artist gave a master class for Art-school students, Trend Life reported.
The visit was organized within the framework of the ecological art project H.E.Art - painting of metal barrels. The author of the project is the artist, the head of the NGO Arts Council Azerbaijan Dadash Mammadov.
Metal barrels are waste material, their export and disposal are expensive. This project creates an opportunity for their ecological use and development of creativity.
Ten metal barrels were presented in the Art Tower Gallery.
The exposition aroused great interest. The representatives of diplomatic missions, cultural workers and artists attended the event.
Note that in the design of public areas with limited space and the lack of excess land today increasingly important role is played by container gardening. Metal barrels as containers are very elegant and modern.
The project allows to use metal barrels in an environmentally responsible manner as well as to develop creative thinking. Bright painting ideas turn metal barrels into colorful and beautiful yard decorations. It's also one of the most effective ways of urban gardening in the challenging small spaces.
