Arma17 takes its name from the number of industrial building — the place the first events were held — situated at former gas-holding facility in the historical part of Moscow, dated 1865. Building was destroyed by the fire in January 2009. Since then, the club is not attached to any specific place, Arma17’s team sees its future in becoming an international phenomenon and work hard to make it.
Working with the sketch the artist used the mobile application Glitche (http://glitche.com) to create distortions needed (liquify) and to get the effect of the channel offset (chills).
The area of the painting: 1584 m2
Adress: Moscow, Berezhkovskaya nab. 20/73
