This graffiti artwork was created at the 1st StreetArtFestival.ch in Chur and is entitled «Home Ground».

Description

The Swiss NEVERCREW continues their tradition of painting meaningful murals that go beyond just being aesthetic. At the first StreetArtFestival.ch in Chur, the duo created their mural «Home Ground». With the local traditions and events playing a fundamental role in their concept, their common bear motif returned in a red and blue base of color. Their use of the symbolic target, again drew a crowd of wonderers and thought provokers. It is therefore about the sharing of natural resources and land between humankind and the other natural beings, about the balance in this cohabitation and about the meaning of borders and ownership if seen from a natural point of view and not perceived only from the human perspective.With their confidence in large spaces, the Montana GOLD and emulsion paint, blended together for a seamless finish. 

With the StreetArtFestival Chur project, the Association for Urban Culture in Graubünden wants to make a new contemporary art form accessible to the public. At the first event in 2018, the mural "Home Ground", a large-scale work of art, was already realised. Further events are in the planning stage.
